France vs Denmark: Match Preview:

Denmark are currently in third place in Group D and made an uninspiring start to their World Cup campaign. The Danes were held to a disappointing 0-0 draw by Tunisia in their opening game and face an uphill battle this weekend.

France, on the other hand, are at the top of their group and will be intent on securing their place in the knock-outs with a victory on Saturday.

Les Bleus thrashed Australia by a comfortable 4-1 scoreline in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result in this fixture.

France vs Denmark: Head to Head:

France have a slight edge over Denmark and have won eight out of the 16 matches played between the two teams, as opposed to Denmark's six victories.

This is the fourth meeting between France and Denmark in the group stage of the World Cup – Les Bleus faced the Danes in 1998 and 2018 and went on to win both editions of the World Cup.

Denmark have won their last two matches against France in all competitions and have never secured three consecutive victories against them in their history.

Team News:

France:

In the same move which led to Craig Goodwin's well-taken opener, France lost Lucas Hernandez to a knee injury. An MRI scan confirmed it was an ACL tear for the Bayern Munich defender, ruling him out of the tournament.

Following Karim Benzema's withdrawal – and Deschamps' refusal to select a replacement – France only have 24 available squad members.

Denmark:

Thomas Delaney fell victim to Tunisia's robust approach in their group opener, limping off with a knee problem on the cusp of half-time. Whether the instrumental midfielder will recover in time for the lofty clash with France remains to be seen.
