Aussie undeterred by opening loss at the World Cup

The win against Peru is a lucky one for the Danes, but this will give them huge confidence for the remaining group games. With three points already in their bag, they know they can qualify for the knockouts with a win over Australia on Thursday.

Australia are a team that love to sit back and observe the pressure and look for occasional openings on the counter. This didn’t help them in creating meaningful goal-scoring chances against France and the lone shot that tested the goal-keeper was the one from the penalty spot.

Denmark have a better defensive unit with an exceptional record to go with. The Danes do not score a lot of goals, but one will be enough to see off the Socceroos.

Now, Australia had given a lot of dangerous set-pieces away to France. This is where Denmark can be more lethal and this is where the expertise of Christian Eriksen come into play.

Christian Eriksen, who takes free kicks and penalties for Denmark and who has scored 12 goals in his last 14 international appearances, looks a good choice for our anytime goal-scorer predictions

We think an Australia win or draw double chance looks a great choice here, but we’re also expecting a draw to be the most likely outcome. Backing a draw alongside this looks a good choice, and a 1-1 correct score prediction looks an attractive proposition too.
