Thursday at the World Cup: Are France going to turn it on?

| 21.06.2018

We’re in for three more World Cup games today, with plenty at stake in Groups C and D.

First up, Denmark take on Australia. Then France will be looking to make it two wins out of two against Peru.

Finally, Argentina will be chasing a vital win against Croatia. You can check out a full preview of that one right here.

We’re concentrating on today’s first two games here…

Denmark v Australia (1:00pm)

After beating Nigeria in their first outing, another win for Denmark should be enough to seal their place in the last 16. But Australia battled well and were unlucky to lose against France.

We’re expecting a tight game here with so much to play for. Denmark are 19/20 favourites. Australia are 16/5. And it could be worth keeping an eye on the draw at 11/5.

Denmark and Under 3.5 Goals is 29/20. It’s also 11/10 for Both Teams to score.

Nicolai Jorgensen will lead the line for the Danes. He’s 4/1 to score first or 8/5 anytime.

Tomi Juric is 14/5 to get his first World Cup goal for Australia.

France v Peru (4:00pm)

France were much less than the sum of their parts against the Aussies. They’ll need to be wary of slipping up against Peru, who caused plenty of problems for Denmark.

Didier Deschamps’ side are 6/10 to get the points. Peru are 5/1 outsiders, with the draw rated at 11/4.

Peru were desperately unlucky not to get something in their opening game. They’ll be determined to cause an upset here. But France’s quality should see them through. It’s 29/10 for France and Both Teams to Score.

Olivier Giroud is set to come into the French starting XI for this one. His presence will give Antoine Griezmann someone to play off. Giroud and Griezmann both to score anytime in a France win is 6/1.

Peru captain Paolo Guerrero is their main goal threat at 21/10 to get on the scoresheet.
