What is the team news?

Denmark will be without William Kvist, who suffered a rib injury against Peru.

France’s centre-back Samuel Umtiti has been struggling with a thigh strain and may be rested. Adil Rami is the most likely to take his place.

What’s the latest news on the two teams?

France have rrecorded two narrow victories and now face tougher competition in Denmark. They still haven’t found a way to play with Dembele, Mbappe and Griezmann and ended up playing with Olivier Giroud leading the line against Peru. Didier Deschamps will need to get his team settled into a rhythm.

A bad result here and an Australia win could see Denmark go home at the group stage, so they will be keen to keep their destiny in their own hands.

What is the group table latest – and what is at stake?

The French are already through to the last 16, but the Danes could do with picking up a point, because a big win for Australia against Peru would see them leapfrog Denmark into second place in Group C.

What are the odds?

  • Denmark win: 7/2
  • France win: 6/5
  • Draw: 8/5

What’s our prediction?

France to shade it with a dodgy VAR decision late in the game, just like against Australia. Cristian Eriksen will also score, because he is brilliant and on brilliant form.

Prediction: 2-1 France
