WhichBookie racing analyst Andrew Blair White provides a preview and betting tips for races at Limerick on Friday 27th May.
Denmark vs Tunisia is the second match of the day on day 2 of the 2022 World Cup and takes place at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar – A 43,350 capacity venue that was purposely built for the tournament.
Denmark are potentially a team to watch at this year’s World Cup and I think that they should have enough to get out of their group despite being drawn alongside France.
Group D consists of France, Denmark, Tunisia and the AFCCONMEBOL Play-Off Winner which will either be Peru, Australia or United Arab Emirates. You’d fully expect France to reach the knockout stages with ease and Denmark are clearly the best of the rest.
Denmark reached the semi-finals of Euro 2020, only being denied a place in the final by a 2-1 defeat to England. They played extremely well in that competition, especially given that they were without their key player Christian Eriksen who collapsed during their opening match against Finland and was left in a critical condition. Thankfully, Eriksen made a full recovery and it now playing in the Premier League for Brentford. He’ll feature for Denmark in this year’s tournament and will be eager to play a part in helping his side progress.
This will be the sixth time Tunisia have qualified for the World Cup finals but their record in the tournament hasn’t been the best. They’ve failed to make it out of the group stages on all occasions and won just two of their 15 games played – a 3-1 win against Mexico in 1978 and a 2-1 victory against Panama at Russia 2018. However, they did manage to find the net in all three of their games at the last World Cup including scoring against England and putting two past Belgium.

Denmark are an organised team and I’d be surprised if they didn’t manage to win their opening game. With France being the clear favourites to win the group, Denmark really can’t afford to be dropping points against Tunisia and either Peru, Australia or UAE if they are to progress. They’re 8/15 for the win which I think would make a great addition to an acca.
From their ten World Cup qualification matches, Denmark won nine of them and eight of those victories were won to nil. Despite Tunisia’s goal scoring record at the World Cup, they have struggled for goals recently and have failed to score more than once in in eight of their last nine games with the vast majority of those matches being against somewhat poor opponents.
Denmark to win to nil appeals to me and is priced at 13/10 with Parimatch.
I also fancy Denmark -1 at odds of 6/4 with Betfred as they certainly aren’t short of goals and will want to make sure that they win this opening match to set themselves up for a much tougher game against France on the following Saturday.
