Denmark Stats & Form
Denmark is not among the top teams from Europe but they definitely have the quality to beat almost any team in the tournament. They proved that by qualifying for the semifinals in the last EURO where they lost to England.
Denmark finished on top of Group F in the European qualifiers with 27 points, 4 more than Scotland. They had an almost perfect record in the qualifiers with 9 wins and only 1 loss.
Denmark has 7 wins and 3 losses in the last 10 games and has started very well in the new Nation League season where they have 3 wins and 1 loss.
Simon Kjaer from Milan and Cristian Eriksen from Manchester United are the top stars on the team.
Denmark will play in their sixth World Cup. Their best result so far is 8th place in 1998 where they lost 3-2 to Brazil in the quarterfinals. At the last World Cup in Russia in 2018, Denmark lost to Croatia after the penalty shootout in the round of 16 and finished in 11th place.
Tunisia Stats & Form
Tunisia is one of the biggest surprises as not many gave them a chance to qualify for the World Cup.
They finished on top of Group B in the first stage of the African qualifications with 4 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. In the Playoffs against Mali, Tunisia won 1-0 on the road and played 0-0 at home to qualify for the World Cup.
Tunisia has 6 wins and only 2 losses in the last 10 games and the team seems ready for the upcoming challenge.
There are no star players on the team but the nation expects a lot of Wahbi Khazri who plays for Montpellier and the 18-year-old midfielder Chaïm El Djebali who has signed with Lyon.
Jalel Khadri has taken over the coaching position this year after being an assistant for the past 2 years.
This will be the sixth appearance for Tunisia at the World Cup. They were part of the tournament in Russia in 2018 when they finished in 24th place with 1 win and 2 losses in the group stage.

The total goals margin is set at 2.5 with 106 for over and -131 for under.
Denmark is one of the best European teams that no one really talks about. They made it to the semifinals in the last EURO seemingly out of nowhere which definitely proves that they are capable of big things. They are starting the World Cup with a match against Tunisia which is definitely a game they need to win in order to advance from Group D. Denmark has experienced players who play for the best European clubs which is clearly a quality that Tunisia doesn’t have. The African team plays hard and leaves everything they have on the pitch but that will not be enough to avoid loss in the opener against Denmark.
