The match

Denmark are billed to have the easiest of starts to the 2022 World Cup campaign, as they face Tunisia in their opening game of Group D on Tuesday. In a group that also has France and Australia, Denmark will want to have a winning start against the opponent tipped to struggle the most in the group. Denmark qualified for the World Cup in an emphatic manner, winning their opening eight matches in the qualifiers and without conceding a goal. They come into this game having won 11 times in the last 15 matches since losing to England in Euro 2020. They’ve only failed to score once in the last five matches, while in the remaining four, they’ve scored twice in three matches. Three of their last five matches have produced under 2.5 goals. Denmark beat France 2-0 in their last game, in September, completing a Nations League double over the world champions. In this game, they will be keen on improving their numbers at the World Cup, with only three wins in their last 10 World Cup matches.

Tunisia qualified for Qatar 2022 courtesy of a slim win over Mali in the final round of qualifiers in the CAF region. Just like Denmark, they didn’t play any buildup games ahead of this competition and coming into this game, they will want to improve on their 5-1 loss to Brazil in September. Tunisia rarely go past the group stages at a FIFA World Cup and coming here, they have just one win in 14 World Cup games. Beating that stat will be top of their plans but given the context of this group, that may be a tall order. One thing they will bank on is their recent form ahead of this competition – they have two losses in their last 10 matches and eight clean sheets in the process. It is key to also mention that they haven’t played a lot of teams as tough as Denmark, and also Denmark have faced many higher placed teams. In their last 10 matches, Tunisia have managed more than a goal in just three and seven of their last 10 matches have produced under 2.5 goals.

Key Statistics

Denmark have failed to score twice in their last 10 matches.

Denmark have won 11 times in their last 15 matches.

Three of Denmark’s last five matches have produced under 2.5 goals.

Seven of Tunisia’s last 10 matches have ended in under 2.5 goals.

Denmark have scored two or more in seven of their last 10 matches.

Tunisia have scored more than a goal in just three of their last 10 games.

The bet of our experts

Tunisia have a good defensive record, keeping clean sheets in eight of their last 10 matches. However, they’ve managed more than a goal in just three of those 10 matches, and this is an area they will want to improve on. It is the key reason most of their games have been low-scoring, and it will be tough to change it against Denmark. The Danes have scored twice in three of the last five but three of the five matches have produced under 2.5 goals. There is a high likelihood Tunisia will employ a defensive approach here, which promises to make this another low-scoring affair, thus under 2.5 goals can pass here.
