After being decimated by injuries to key players, including Karim Benzema, Paul Pogba, and N’Golo Kante before the World Cup, Les Bleus have brushed this aside and they were rampant against Australia.

A brilliant 4-1 victory has put them in the driving seat in Group D, and they will look to build upon this performance.

Denmark, however, were rather tepid in their opening game against Tunisia, but Andreas Cornelius inexplicably missed from a yard when he nodded unmarked onto the post.

More significantly, the Danes have won each of their past two meetings with France in the Nations League, and that will give them some confidence.

But how will this encounter pan out? Ahead of kick-off, we have handpicked a couple of juicy tips for you to sink your teeth into.

France to turn in another stirring display

France have a spring in their step at the moment. Their emphatic victory over Australia earlier this week means they have now won their last five World Cup games on the trot. The last nation to win six in a row was Spain in 2010, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Moreover, France have been rampant, scoring four or more in each of their past two World Cup outings, but Denmark will represent a sterner test.

Indeed, Denmark have kept a clean sheet in three of their past five World Cup games, just one fewer than they managed in their first 16 appearances in the competition.

Despite their recent problems against Denmark, France should come through their latest clash with few issues. I have a hunch that France could register a 3-1 win, a price that is available at a tempting-looking 16/1 with bet365.

Charles fancies another strong French performance

Kylian Mbappe to take home the match ball

Olivier Giroud may well be hunting for a record-breaking 52nd international goal, and he has shown his enduring quality at the grand old age of 36, but this could be the game where Kylian Mbappe underlines his star quality.

Mbappe turned in a scintillating performance against Australia where he scored, assisted a goal, and topped the charts for most shots (seven) and dribbles attempted (nine), and he has been prolific for Les Bleus.

Currently, Mbappe is averaging 0.59 goals per 90 minutes for France, and it seems surprising that he has managed only one international hat-trick for his country.

Giroud and Mbappe are looking rather formidable, but Mbappe could produce a show-stopping display, one that could see him bag a hat-trick and take home the matchball. Despite trading at a big price of 35/1 with Paddy Power to net three goals, you wouldn’t put it past Mbappe to deliver the goods.
