Yussuf Poulsen Peru Denmark World Cup 2018
Needing just a point to secure a place in the last 16, Al Hain-Cole is backing Hareide's men to ensure goals are few and far between against Les Bleus

Denmark will be hoping to seal their place in the World Cup knockout stages when they take on France at the Luzhniki Stadium on Tuesday.

Age Hareide’s team are on the verge of the last 16 after taking four points from their opening two matches, although would crash out if they lose and Australia beat Peru.

Latest Odds

Having come out on top when the sides met at the 2002 World Cup, they are available at 29/10 (3.90) with William Hill to go through in first place with a shock win, or 17/10 (2.70) to finish as runners-up by securing a draw.

Les Bleus have not looked particularly convincing despite winning both of their matches so far, but are 13/10 (2.30) favourites to maintain their 100 per cent record with another victory here.

Team News

William Kvist has been sent home after breaking two ribs and puncturing a lung in the opening game against Peru, while Yussuf Poulsen is suspended after picking up a yellow card in each game so far.

Samuel Umtiti is unlikely to play due to a slight thigh problem, with either Adil Rami or Presnel Kimpembe set to deputise.

Danish Defence

Needing just a point to qualify, it seems unlikely that the Rod-Hvide will take any chances by showing too much attacking ambition in this clash.

Having conceded just a single goal in their last six fixtures, they will back themselves to make life difficult for a team that has struggled to make the most of their abundance of attacking riches so far in Russia.

Didier Deschamps’ men have only scored two goals from open play in their two group games, with one of those a rather fortuitous own goal by an Australian defender.

Predictions

With the robust Danes determined to put up a stern resistance against a disjointed France, odds of 13/10 (2.30) are well worth backing on them ensuring under 1.5 goals for their fifth match in seven.
