Bank On Australia Finishing Bottom In Group C At The World Cup

France couldn't have asked for a much easier World Cup group as all three of their opponents needed play-offs to make it to the finals in Russia. Didier Deschamps' 'Golden Generation' of players surely can't mess this up? We analyse their chances and dissect the World Cup Group C betting odds...

France Favourites In The Group C Betting

There is a feeling that this France side are building towards something special as Deschamps has an enviable array of riches at his disposal. However, their defeat to Portugal in the final of Euro 2016 only served to heighten the impression that they struggle to get over the finishing line when it comes to the crunch.

They last won the World Cup in 1998 and they have suffered the indignity of two group stage exits from finals since then. A kind draw ensures there shouldn't be any early embarrassment this time and they have won six of their last seven head-to-head meetings with Denmark (the sole defeat came at the 2002 World Cup), although their only previous clash with Peru ended in defeat in 1982...

France are 2/7 favourites to win the group and their biggest challenge would appear to be Denmark, who are making only their second appearance at a FIFA World Cup finals since 2002. The Danes finished second to Poland in their qualification group before Christian Eriksen inspired a 5-1 win over Republic of Ireland in the play-offs.

Eriksen holds the key to their chances this summer and they are likely to be competing with Peru for the runner-up spot behind France.

Peru and Denmark meet in the first game of the tournament and the Peruvians are not to be underestimated as they are well-drilled under Ricardo Gareca. They beat New Zealand in a play-off to reach their first World Cup since 1982 and their chances of success have been bolstered by the news that Paolo Guerrero's ban for doping has been overturned.

Denmark are 4/9 to qualify but there could be some value in backing Peru to qualify at 2/1 with Paddy Power.

The best bet for Group C has to be Australia to finish bottom at 4/5 with Unibet. The men from 'Down Under' squeaked past Syria in a play-off and a team that struggles for goals will come up short against the talents of France, the physicality of the Danes and the organisation of Peru.
