Russia 2018 World Cup Group C Predictions, Odds, and Analysis

The 2018 Russia World Cup group C starts on June 14 with matches between France and Australia and Peru and Denmark. Read on for all the details!

World Cup 2018 Group C Predictions

France vs. Australia

  • Date: Saturday, June 16
  • Betting Odds: France -415 vs Australia +1440; Draw +550

France: Les Blues come into this competition in top shape though having lost to Portugal in the most recent UEFA Euro Cup. Recently, they defeated Italy 3-1, Ireland 2-0, and a 1-1 tie with the United States.

However, even with all the obvious talent, France is prone to making costly mistakes that open the door to defeat. France lost to Italy in the 2006 World Cup on penalties and to Germany in the quarterfinals of the 2014 edition, but could this be their year to finally crown themselves as champions? It's an open question which we all might get an answer depending on this game's result.

At the very minimum, France needs to crush their group opponents. Anything less than three wins is unacceptable and would be telling of how they will fare in the rest of the competition.

Australia: It’s the Aussie’s fourth consecutive trip to the World Cup; however, they endured a rocky road to qualify for this edition as the next-to-last team to clinch a spot.

Not much has changed in the squad from that of 2014 that eventually won a first Asian Cup in 2015. With France the favorite to win the group, and Peru arguably the weakest team in the group, the real battle for Australia will be against Denmark for the second place.

Prediction for France vs. Australia: No contest, the team from down under will lose 3-1.

Peru vs. Denmark

  • Date: Saturday, June 16
  • Betting Odds: Denmark +114 vs Peru +285; Draw +235

Peru: Though the Peruvian team wasn’t among the favorites to qualify because of the tough competition in South America, they edged out teams like Chile, Ecuador, and Paraguay for the fifth spot in the World Cup for that region.

Peru needed a playoff win over New Zealand to qualify and after drawing 0-0 in the away leg they won 2-0 at home to earn their spot.

Although not many people give this squad much hope to make it past the group stage, because they play against much stronger teams in their region they could do surprisingly well.

Denmark: The Danes were also a team that needed a playoff to qualify for the 2018 World Cup having finished second to Poland.

The Danish squad is counting on Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen to lead the way to a win over Peru in the first game at least to give themselves at least a chance against France and Australia that are arguably more difficult opponents.

Prediction for Denmark vs Peru: At +114, Denmark seems to be the safer bet. Though the Danes haven’t competed in a major tournament since the 2012 European Championships, they’re an incredibly dangerous team with Christian Eriksen leading the attack. However, expect this to be a close game with neither team giving away an inch. Denmark will win 3-1.
