France and Denmark are expected to glide through to the last 16 as the reigning champions have Karim Benzema on board this time to bolster their attacking unit. As for Denmark, they showed their quality to reach the semifinals of EURO 2020 and they were excellent in qualifying in Europe.

Denmark also beat France in UEFA Nations League action recently and play them just before this World Cup as these two teams know each other very well and both are favored to go far in Qatar.

Australia are a nasty team to play against and will sit back, frustrate opponents and look to be dangerous on the counter. As for Tunisia, they had a decent AFCON tournament last time (reaching the quarterfinals) but they look like the weaker of the teams in this group.
