Australia v Denmark = Denmark to WIN
Both Australia and Denmark can still qualify for the next round, although the Danes have made hard work of their Group D campaign so far. Kasper Hjulmund’s side have taken just a single point so far from their opening two matches and this simply a must-win fixture. Australia were only expected to make up the numbers in this section, however, they’ve given themselves a decent chance of making the round of 16. They may lack quality, but they will battle valiantly throughout and they won’t make it easy for the Danes. Despite their lack of cutting edge, Denmark may just have enough to edge this.
Tunisia v France = France to WIN
This is one of the more straightforward selections on Wednesday with France expected to end their Group D campaign on a high. Les Bleus haven’t been imperious, however, they’ve been good enough to take six points so far and have plenty of individual flair and creativity within their squad. Antoine Griezmann has created nine chances already whereas Kylian Mbappe is a proven match-winner. Didier Deschamps’ side have been scintillating going forward, however, they have conceded in both matches and that is something that the boss will be looking to address. Tunisia have battled valiantly, but they lack quality in the final third and this is their toughest fixture yet.
Saudi Arabia v Mexico = Draw
Mexico were hoping to be challenging for qualification and were looking to continue their record of reaching the round of 16, however, El Tri look a little toothless in the final third and they don’t look capable of finding the back of the net. With an xG of just 1 across their opening two matches (0.9 less than today’s opponents), they just don’t look dangerous in forward areas. Saudi Arabia were unable to recreate their heroics on Saturday lunchtime, although they did have chances and missed a penalty. This one may end as a stalemate.
Popand v Argentina = Argentina to WIN
The battle to finish top of Group C commences and both sides will fancy their chances of ending on a high. Poland are yet to concede a goal at this tournament, despite giving away plenty of decent chances against Saudi Arabia. They have a deadly finisher in Robert Lewandowski, however, they have struggled to create clear-cut chances from other areas of the field. Argentina have barely given anything away, however, they have also looked laboured in forward areas. They have been reliant on Lionel Messi and his quality may just edge La Albiceleste over the line here.12/1 World Cup ACCA at bet365
