Denmark will have to stay strong and hold their position in the match against Australia. They are currently on the second spot with 3 points, Australia are yet to secure a point.
Australia will fight for survival while Denmark aims to secure their spot in the knockout stage. Denmark's final group stage game is against France. Hence, they will be desperate to register a win against Australia.
The Australian midfield of Mile Jedinak and Aaron Mooy is solid, but they need to make something happen up front for the likes of Andrew Nabbout and Tom Rogic to finish the build-up. It will be interesting to see when 38-year-old Tim Cahill will come in to play.
Australia faces an opponent that has not been beaten for 16 games and has not conceded a goal for five.
