France looks to keep rolling when they collide with Denmark in 2022 FIFA World Cup Group D action on Saturday.

Australia took a 1-0 lead against France, but the defending World Champions proved to be too much for them as the game progressed and they won 4-1 on Tuesday.

Denmark is coming off a surprising 0-0 draw against Tunisia on Tuesday. On paper, Denmark was the better team and should have taken care of business, but Tunisia put up a fight and played a very smart game, coming with away with a valuable point.

The player to watch in this game is Kylian Mbappé, who has 12 goals and two assists in 14 Ligue 1 games with Paris Saint-Germain this season. AccuScore gives Kylian Mbappé a 58.5 percent chance to score against Denmark. He has 50 SCA and 6 GCA in 14 Ligue 1 games with Paris Saint-Germain.

France didn’t play a perfect game against Australia and they still won 4-1. Denmark has a talented team that plays with chemistry and they already beat France two months ago but what I saw from them against Tunisia concerned me and France is on a completely different level.
