Denmark vs Tunisia - 2022 World Cup Betting Guide

Denmark will face Tunisia in the first game of Group D, which will be the first World Cup game held in the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan. The game will take place on the 22nd of November.

The first group stage game is always thrilling. Here, the Danish team will be the odds on favourites to win the match and if they can firmly seal a win here, they will only strengthen their chances of reaching the round of 16. For Tunisia, this first match will be important for the same reason, only they have never reached the round of 16.

Denmark Team Info – A Genuine Threat

Denmark had a phenomenal qualification route to the World Cup. They played in UEFA Group F with Austria, Israel, Moldova, Faroe Islands, and Scotland, and managed to win all but 1 of their 10 games. They scored 30 goals and only conceded 3 in all their matches. The nation currently sits in 10th place in the football world rankings, and along with France, they are the favourites to advance to the knockout stage. Denmark have competed in 5 World Cups prior to the 2022 event, and their best run came in 1998, when they reached the quarter finals. In the last World Cup, they were placed into a group with Australia, France, and Peru, and they managed to reach the round of 16. They faced Croatia, and despite scoring, the game ended 1-1 and the two sides had to play penalties. Croatia ended Denmark's dreams of reaching the quarter finals as they won the penalty shootout 3-2.

The Danish team has quality players all over the field. In goal, they have Kasper Schmeichel, who is the son of former goalkeeper and Danish football legend Peter Schmeichel. Simon Kjaer leads the defensive line, alongside players such as Andreas Christensen, Jens Stryger Larsen, Joakim Maehle, and Jannik Vestergaard. In midfield, they have their talisman Christian Eriksen, as well as Christian Norgaard, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Thomas Delaney, and Daniel Wass. In attack, they have Martin Braithwaite and Kasper Dolberg, who have both scored 10 goals, as well as Yussuf Poulsen, who has scored 11.

Tunisia Team Info – A Team Not to be Dismissed

At the start of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, Tunisia was the second highest ranking African nation, sitting in 29th position in the football world rankings. They won 4 out of their 6 games in the second round of the CAF qualification, scoring 11 goals and conceding only 2. The nation then beat Mali in the two-legged third round, to secure a place in the World Cup.

Their team consists mostly of footballers who play in Arab leagues, with the exception of a few who play in the top leagues in Europe. In goal, they have Bechir Ben Said. In defence, they can use Bilel Ifa, Montassar Talbi, Dylan Bronn, and longtime defender Ali Maaloul, who has been capped 81 times. Their midfield includes the Manchester United youth star Hannibal Mejbri, as well as Ferjani Sassi, Ellyes Skhiri, and Saif-Eddine Khaoui.

Asian Handicaps

Handicaps are bets where you pick a team to win by a certain margin of goals or more, or you can bet on a team to not lose by a certain margin of goals or more. There are three types of handicaps that have slightly different requirements, but they all follow the same rules in that the number picked will be added or subtracted from the chosen team’s number of goals at the end of the match and they should still win the game.

If you bet on Denmark and apply a handicap of -1.5 then you will need Denmark to win the game by 2 or more goals. If you apply a handicap of -2 then you will need Denmark to finish the game 3 or more goals clear of Tunisia, but if they finish the game only 2 goals in front then the result will be deemed a draw and you will receive your money back.

You can pick a handicap of -1.75 which will split your stake in two, with half going on a handicap of -1.5 and the other half on a handicap of -2. If Denmark wins the game by 3 goals or more then both bets pay out and you will receive your full winnings. If Denmark only wins the game by 2 goals then only one of the bets is fulfilled and you will receive half your money back.

Over/Under Total Goals

Total goal bets are on how many goals will be scored between both teams in a game. It does not matter if only one team scores all of them or when they are scored as long as at the end of the match the number of goals falls into the range defined by the bet. It uses the over/under format which means you will need to pick a betting line and then bet on whether the game will end with over or under that number of goals. If you think Denmark and Tunisia will not score many goals during the match then you can bet on the game to end with under 1.5 or 2.5 goals. If you think there will be numerous goals scored during the game, you can bet on the match to end with over 3.5 or 4.5 goals.

You can bet on many different aspects of the game such as Denmark to score the first goal, either team to score in 5 minutes, Tunisia to win the first half, both teams to score, Denmark to reverse the result, Tunisia to keep a clean sheet, and many more.

There are many different bets you can pick from, but we strongly advise you to only bet with as much money as you can afford to lose.
