Denmark - Tunisia WC2022 prediction
- Title : Denmark - Tunisia WC2022 prediction
Denmark finished with the joint-best defensive record in the World Cup qualifiers, where they conceded just three goals in 10 matches, and Hjulmand will hope for another defensive show of class from his side in Qatar.
Today we have Denmark that receives Tunisia in this early match which starts already at 2PM Swedish time.
Here I think that Denmark should be BIG favorites to open the WC with a comfortable win.
Of course there are no easy victories on paper, but, Denmark has a great team to field and we saw how well they played as a TEAM in the Nations League.
They defeated Austria in the double match with 2-1 and 2-0, and also France was beaten in both games with 2-1 away and 2-0 at home by the Danes.
Our red and white neighbors are ranked 10th in the world while Tunisia is ranked around 30.
In Tunisia we don't see so many players who are in the big leagues except Khazri (Montpellier) and Skhiri (Köln), while in Denmark there is Ericsen (Man United), Dolberg (Sevilla), Höjbjerg (Tottenham), Braithwaite (Espanyol), Cornelius (Copenhagen) and Poulsen (Leipzig) among the offensive forces that will create the chances and goals.
In my eyes, there is a big difference between the teams and in this group, also Denmark must win against this opposition if they are to progress beyond the group.
Pros and Cons:
-Pros: Denmark is filled with players who play in the highest leagues in the world and used to tough opposition and pace.
-Pros: Denmark is warmed up and won 4/4 matches against Austria and France in the Uefa Nations League who are much better teams than Tunisia.
-Pros: Tunisia recently had to test against tougher opposition in Brazil and were already behind after 40 minutes with 4-1.
-Cons: Opening round for both teams, Denmark has more routine, but if there's ever going to be a clash, it's in the first match.
Denmark over 1.5 goals
