Haiti vs Denmark odds and betting statistics



Haiti vs Denmark match preview

Denmark are well-placed to reach the round of 16, so will they make sure of progression with a win in Perth?

De rød-hvide began this campaign with a 1-0 victory over China that was both dramatic and crucial in equal measure, with Amalie Vangsgaard bagging a long-range header in the final minute of normal time.

Six days later, Lars Søndergaard’s team suffered a defeat by the same scoreline against England in Sydney.

The only came after less than six minute, before Rikke Madsen, Katrine Veje and Vangsgaard all came agonisingly close to equalisers, the latter thwacking the crossbar right at the end.

Despite defeat, Denmark remain second in Group D, above China PR by virtue of head-to-head record, needing to match China’s result on this final matchday to go through.

Of course, a victory here would guarantee that the Danes will feature in the World Cup knockout stages for the first time in 28 years.

Les Grenadières are making their World Cup debut and, to date, they’ve suffered a pair of 1-0 defeats, narrowly beaten by England in Brisbane and then by China PR in Adelaide on Friday.

The latter was certainly controversial, with China reduced to ten-players in the first half, before their winner came from the penalty spot, after Ruthny Mathurin was penalised for a foul.

In stoppage time, referee Marta Huerta de Aza did award a penalty, only to then overturn her decision on VAR review, before le Rouge et Bleu had an even stronger shout for a spot-kick, but this wasn’t given either.

So, Nicolas Delépine and his team certainly feel aggrieved, but his team could still get out of this group, despite kicking off pointless.

If China do not beat England simultaneously and Haiti win this one by any scoreline either than 1-0, then they’ll qualify at Denmark’s expense.

The permutations would get really complicated if England and Haiti were both to win by 1-0, with second place decided by the seventh tie-breaker disciplinary record, with the Danes currently leading the way by that metric.

All of that will be rendered irrelevant if Denmark prevail at Perth Rectangular Stadium, so can Haiti throw the cat amongst the pigeons by claiming a shock victory?

Haiti team news

Superstar teenager Melchie Dumornay is carrying an injury, so was only fit enough to feature for 45 minutes on Friday, introduced at half time.

To emphasis her impact, Haiti had zero shots in the first half against China, before recording seven after the break, two of which came from Dumornay.

Olympique Lyonnais’ new signing elevates this team’s potential exponentially, joining Nérilia Mondésir and Roselord Borgella in attack.

Predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Théus; Petit-Frère, Joseph, Mathurin, K Louis; Jeudy, Pierre-Louis, B Louis, Mondésir, Dumornay; Borgella.

Denmark teams news

Denmark’s taliswomen is captain Pernille Harder, who’s 70 international goals have come against 33 different opponents, seeking to add Haiti to that list.

Having bagged the winner against China, Amalie Vangsgaard could come in alongside Harder in attack, displacing Rikke Madsen.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Christensen; Sevecke, Boye Sørensen, Ballisager Pedersen, Veje; Holmgaard, Hasbo, Møller Kühl; Thomsen, Vangsgaard, Harder.
