Denmark is most likely to go through to the next round but they have to win this game at any cost because Australia is breathing on their neck and if the Danes fail to do so they have to say goodbye to their world cup dream like Poland and Egypt did. Denmark won against Peru and drew against Australia and now they would be facing group toppers France in their final game in the group. Denmark, however, would be without their goal scorer against Peru as he is suspended and would want to hold a strong line of defense because the attacking lineup of France is very destructive. Though they haven’t lived up to the expectations, still they are destructive enough. France has already booked a spot in the knockout stages and would want to come into this game doing all their experiments and combination to create the best possible playing 11.

France is most likely to make some defensive changes in this game and would want their attacking formation intact. Olivier Giroud, Antoine Griezmann, Blaise Matuidi and Kylian Mbappe are all expected to start in this game. Samuel Umtiti is doubtful to start in this game because of the thigh injury he picked up in the previous game. Nabil Fekir is another player who may come into the game later.
Denmark is without their match winner against Yussuf Poulsen and he would be replaced by Martin Braithwaite. William Kvist remains injured and is most likely to be left out in this game.
