Monday betting overview
The 2018 World Cup finalists both suffered defeats in their Nations League openers on Friday, but it’s France who are set to bounce back against Croatia on Monday.
The home side were comfortably beaten 3-0 by Austria last time out and hadn’t been in great form before then, having drawn against Slovenia and Slovakia in their last six matches.
Zlatko Dalic’s men have a poor record against the Blues, losing 4-2, 2-1 to the side that beat them in the World Cup final in their two meetings since then.
France had won five in a row before being beaten 2-1 by Denmark on Friday, and their misery was made worse by injuries to Raphael Varane and Kylian Mbappe.
There’s no shame in losing for the side that reached the Euro semi-finals, however, and given the depth of Didier Deschamps’ side, this game should offer some of the youngsters stars the opportunity to claim their place.
Croatia will likely be without Ivan Perisic and Luka Modric was only fit enough to come off the bench against Austria after his turbulent domestic season. The depth of the France team could therefore be the key to dominating this match.
Denmark showed their success at last summer’s European Championships was no flash in the pan with a dominant World Cup qualifying campaign, conceding just three goals in ten appearances and winning nine of those. matches before a final defeat against Scotland.
Kasper Hjulmand’s side continued their good form, coming from behind to beat France in Paris and should have too much for Austria.
New Austrian coach Ralf Rangnick cruised to a 3-0 victory over Croatia in his first game in charge of Das Team, but his side were comfortably beaten by Denmark, 1-0 and 4-0, in this group qualification for the World Cup in which the Scandinavians have done so well.
Austria were also beaten by Wales in their World Cup qualifiers recently, which doesn’t inspire confidence in their ability to get a result against a strong Danish side.
Christian Eriksen is back to his best for Brentford and he is a talisman for a side that have won 11 of their last 14 games in all competitions and are set to continue that solid form.
The remaining Nations League card for the day consists mostly of low-level affairs, with Iceland’s match against Albania the highlight.
