FRANCE and Denmark landed lucky in Group C and there looks no chance of Australia or Peru progressing.
The fabulous French are massive favourites at 4-9 with Black Type to top the table and the Danes, 8-11 at Sky Bet shouldn't be too far behind.
I've predicted a couple of straight forecasts already and France, Denmark in that order pays 7-4 at Black Type.
France open against Australia and while they can be slow starters we'll get an idea of the gulf in class between the sides. They are a best 2-9 to win the game but I'd be happy with France -1 at 8-11 with Coral.
Boss Didier Deschamps has so much talent at his disposal, the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, Thomas Lemar, Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante. In fact keeping everyone happy and united could be the major problem.
Griezmann showed his ability with a double in the Europa League Final and the Atletico Madrid star has a chance to top score in the tournament if the French go far.
Denmark have one big star in Christian Eriksen but plenty of others plying their trade at the top level. They need the play-offs to secure their finals place with the Spurs star netting a hat-trick against Republic of Ireland in Dublin.
With Eriksen leading them on the Danes should have too much for Peru and the Aussies. They start against Peru and are 23-10 with Ladbrokes.
Australia also needed a play-off to qualify and they struggled to see off Syria. They have many well-known faces such as Huddersfield's Aaron Mooy, Celtic's Tom Rogic and the evergreen Tim Cahill but not enough depth to worry the French or Danes.
It's between them and Peru for bottom spot and I'll take the Aussies at 11-10 with Black Type.
Peru were surprise qualifiers and will rely on experienced duo Jefferson Farfan and Paolo Guerreiro to help guide their youngsters. Must be aiming for three points against Australia and avoiding embarrassment in the other two games.
