Considering the defensive solidity both countries boast of in recent times, this encounter promises to be a tight affair

The Luzhniki Stadium is the venue for the showdown between Denmark and France for their last Group C match on Tuesday.

The Danish Dynamite edged past Peru in their first outing and would have made it successive victories had Australia not shared the spoils with them last Thursday.

With the second-spot up for grab for the Danes, they will be hoping to join their European counterparts in this tie. NairaBet offers odds of (4.75) for them to pull off a surprise shock here.

Having secured their spot in the knock-out stage of the quadrennial tournament with a game to spare, Didier Deschamps will, undoubtedly, field his well-built line-up against Denmark. Thus, they’re slight favourites in this outing at odds of (2.35).

A no winner, no vanquish state at the end of 90 minutes here is chalked up at a mouth-watering (2.70) with the same betting firm.

Les Bleus have been underwhelming so far in the global showpiece, but have picked up important wins over the Australians and the Peruvians to seal progress. Owing to the fact that Deschamps’ charges have won their last three matches against Age Hareide’s men, they can be backed to avoid defeat here at (1.22).

France have been offensive against their counterparts lately, while Hareide’s side have been defensive. So, it’s worth backing an outcome that sees three or more cards given in this fixture at odds of (1.90).

Both countries will be looking on course to grind it so tight in the first 45 minutes taking into account their strength at the back. A first half stalemate has paid out in eight of the Nordic country’s last 10 games. Hence, backing a repeat of the same result seems generous at (1.95).

What seems more rewarding in this encounter is an outcome that produces two or fewer goals here. Four of both countries’ last five head-to-head clashes has seen similar result pay out. NairaBet quotes odds of (1.45) for a possible outcome here.
