Denmark had a good start to the tournament, grabbing three points against Peru. While Australia suffered a loss 1-2 against France. The Danes will be looking to get all three points from this game, considering that their next clash will be against France, while the Socceroos will go into the match high on confidence.
Players to watch out for:
Kasper Schmeichel: Denmark was under constant pressure against Peru but Schmeichel did an extraordinary job to stop the strikers. That included two blinder saves.
William Kvist: The Denmark midfielder suffered a rib injury in the game against Peru and will be out of the rest of the World Cup.
Aaron Mooy: The midfielder will look to pierce the Denmark defence. Something which he failed to do against France.
Mile Jedinak: He will be the key for Australia when it comes to pass as well as the defence.
