The UEFA Nations League returns with another round of fixtures this weekend as France take on Denmark on Sunday. Both teams can pack their day and will want to win this game.
France currently sit third in Group 1 of the UEFA Nations League table and have not been at their best last year. The Blues beat Austria by a 2-0 margin in their previous match and will be looking to achieve a similar result this weekend.
Denmark, on the other hand, currently sit second in the group and have been inconsistent this year. The Danish outfit suffered a 2-1 loss to Croatia this week and will need to bounce back in this game.
Denmark vs France head to head
France have a good record against Denmark and have won eight of the 15 matches played between the two teams. Denmark have won five wins against France and will look to reduce the deficit on Sunday.
The previous meeting between the two teams took place in June this year and ended in a 2-1 win for Denmark. France were dominated that day and have a point to prove this weekend.
