Our Denmark vs Tunisia prediction: Denmark to win.
Does our World Cup predictor favour the Vikings in this fixture, does their history in the competition have any bearing on what’s expected of their performance? Denmark is a dark horse team: they always have been. Their appearances in the UEFA European Championship have always been incredibly impressive, having reached the Semi-finals twice and winning the competition once back in 1992. How do they fare when it comes to the FIFA competition, and how good are their players that might affect your football betting decisions? Let’s reveal all the qualities of this footballing nation.
World Cup History
When it comes to the World Cup Denmark has made a total of five appearances, their trip to Qatar will be the sixth time they’ve competed in the tournament. Denmark’s first appearance wasn’t until 1986 when they reached the Round of 16 and ended the competition in 9th place. Their best progress was in the following tournament in 1998 when they reached the Quarter-Finals and ended in 8th place.
Their last outing in the competition saw them reach the Round of 16 and ended in 11th place. This is a familiar pattern for the Danes, and if history repeats itself, they should sweep aside Tunisia and comfortably qualify from the Group Stages.

Denmark Players to Watch
Does Denmark have the right calibre of players to oversee Tunisia? Well, it was a hard choice to pick just three because they have a very impressive squad for this tournament. But for this game and perhaps throughout the competition, these players are going to be vital to Denmark’s success. Will they influence your World Cup 2022 predictions?
- Christian Eriksen : Position: Midfield. With having to we withdraw from the Euros in 2020 due to heart failure, this is Eriksen’s last shot. The influential midfielder and possibly their best player will want to go out in a blaze of glory. Eriksen has 115 caps, 38 goals, and 26 assists.
- Mikkel Damsgaard : Position: Midfield. Shone in the Euros and comes into the team with 16 caps and 4 goals. Money is on him slotting in a sweet freekick at some point in this tournament, which is his specialty.
- Kasper Schmeichel : Position: Goalkeeper. Great keeper and facing his last World Cup at the age of 35. He has 84 caps for Denmark and has conceded 66 and kept 41 clean sheets. The last line of defence is strong, and the Danes will not see more than 1 goal go past them, and certainly none in the Tunisia game.
Many people will see Tunisia as pushovers in this World Cup, but these people will most likely not be aware of the success they have had in major tournaments like the African Cup of Nations. In 2004, they won this trophy and have had a long history of reaching the quarter-finals. Will their achievements in the AFCON where they finished 8th place in 2021 transfer into the FIFA World Cup?
World Cup History
Like the Danes, Tunisia has previously appeared in five World Cups, and the trip to Qatar will be their sixth. Their progression is not as successful, as they have failed to get out of the Group stages. In their last World Cup, they finished 24th, winning one game against Panama and losing two games to England and Belgium. Their only other win in a World Cup was back in 1978 against Mexico.
Qualification & Road to the World Cup 2022
For Tunisia to compete in the World Cup, their qualifier process is done a little differently with fewer games involved. There are group stages that then turn into rounds as the last teams of the group stages face off for a place in the World Cup. Was this an easy task for the Tunisian football team, and will it make you think about how you might view their chances of winnings against Denmark?

|07/09/2021||Zambia vs Tunisia||0-2|

Tunisia Players to Watch
Players can have an impact on football predictions in various ways. If a team’s talisman is out injured, the results might not go their way. If they have a super striker, they could cause an upset. Does Tunisia have any players that are the ones to watch at this World Cup? Here is our pick of their top three talents.
- Mohamed Ali Ben Romdhane: Position: Midfield. For the national team, Romdhane has 22 caps and 1 goal. Many games had been missed through illness or injury, but the Tunisians will be hoping that’s in the past as he has good defensive play.
- Hannibal Mejbri : Position: Midfield. One of the youngest players at the tournament aged 19, this attacking midfielder brings the team pace and skill. He currently has 10 caps but will be adding to this in the group stages.
- Montassar Omar Talbi: Position: Defender. 18 caps for the country and zero bookings. He will need to be this solid throughout for Tunisia to stand any chance of success against Demark and the rest of Group D.
