Australia head into an encounter against Denmark in the World Cup on Wednesday. Their final group stage match will be played out at Al Janoub Stadium.

Following two rounds of matches in Group D, Australia sit as number two with three points, while Denmark collected one point as number three. Australia arrive at this match placed as number 38 in the FIFA world ranking, while their Danish foes are number 10 in the world.

Judging by the prices from the bookmakers, it would be a huge surprise to see Australia lasting beyond the group stages at the World Cup. They are one of the biggest outsiders of all the teams to enter this competition. Denmark, on the other hand, expect to book a place in the next round of the World Cup. Leaving the tournament before the fun really starts would be a big blow.

World Cup table overview: Australia vs Denmark

Having so far lost and won a match in the World Cup tournament, Australia still have high hopes of getting through to the next stage. A second defeat could prove costly, though, and they must tread carefully. Denmark have only one point to show for their efforts in their first two group matches, which is not great. At least they are still in with a chance of going through, but only if they win this final group match.
