Denmark was the big surprise of Euro 2020. After losing their leader, Christian Eriksen (and nearly losing him in the most morbidly literal way), Hjulmand’s men impressed Europe by getting one controversial penalty call away from the final. They continued this form in the latest Nations League edition and they come to this World Cup with dreams. It all starts here. This Denmark vs Tunisia match might set the foundations for something big. For one Cinderella story to remember.

Before we continue to our predictions and team news for Denmark vs Tunisia, it is important to be informed about the best bookmaker offers you can use to wager on the game.
Christian Eriksen is not just Denmark’s leader. He is one of the best footballers the country has ever produced and one of the most charismatic players in the world. When his heart stopped, during the game against Finland, the whole country stood still. It’s now a year later and Eriksen is here, ready to produce some kind of magic. Not only in this Denmark vs Tunisia game, but in the World Cup in general.
Barcelona defender Andreas Christensen will likely miss this match, due to injury, but Denmark has talented alternatives. At least for a theoretically easy game, such as this one.
The team is impeccable since last season. After the Euro 2020 road to the semi-final, Hjulmand’s men impressed once again by beating France twice for the Nations League. A France team that they will face once again in the Group Stage of this World Cup.
Alongside Eriksen, Denmark has two amazing midfielders in Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Thomas Delaney, both more than capable of properly feeding the forwards, Kasper Dolberg and Martin Braithwaite.
This will sound contradictory to what we said above. We called Tunisia an easy opponent. But they are no pushovers. They have players who play in some of Europe’s top leagues and the attacking duo of Khazri and Msakni is a pair that should be feared.
There are defensive liabilities and Tunisia must be careful for them not to be brutally exploited, but its midfield and attacking lines are World Cup-worthy.
Denmark (3-4-3): Schmeichel; Andersen, Nelsson, A. Christensen; Wass, Hojbjerg, Delaney, Maehle; Olsen, Eriksen, Dolberg
Tunisia (4-3-3): Dahmen; Drager, Bronnm Talbi, Meriah; Chaalali, Skhiri, Laidouni; Slimane, Khazri, Msakni
Denmark to Win: 1.55
Tunisia to Win: 6.80
Over 2.5 Goals: 2.25
Under 2.5 Goals: 1.65
Denmark has what it takes to bring this one home. I cannot see past Hjulmand’s men in this one.
Denmark vs Tunisia Pick: Denmark to win @1.55
