Defending champions France will be the headline act in Groups C and D as they take on Australia in their opening game of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Denmark will take on Tunisia in Group D too, with all sides involved looking to get their respective campaigns off to the best possible start.
2022 FIFA World Cup Group C Match Previews
Argentina vs Saudi Arabia
2014 World Cup finalists Argentina will be looking to get off to a good start in Qatar, as they take on Saudi Arabia. Argentina are always one of the key sides to keep an eye on in any World Cup campaign and their recent showings give reason to their status as one of the favourites for glory. Saudi Arabia meanwhile continually qualify for World Cups but often struggle to pick up results, making Argentina justified favourites for this one.
Betting tip: Argentina to win the match – 2/11
Score Prediction: Argentina to win 3-0 – 4/1
Mexico vs Poland
Both Mexico and Poland will have high hopes for the 2022 World Cup, and both will want to get off to the best possible start. Mexico always bring their A-game to the big tournaments, and they will relish the playing conditions here in Qatar. Poland meanwhile will be looking to Robert Lewandowski to bang the goals in, as they look to progress to the knockout rounds. This should be a real clash of style, with a draw seemingly on the cards.
Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw – 2/1
Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw – 13/1
2022 FIFA World Cup Group D Match Previews
Denmark vs Tunisia
Denmark and Tunisia will be hoping to get off to strong starts, as they face off in their opening match. Denmark reached the semi-finals of Euro 2020 and should be better off for the experience as they arrive here in Qatar. Tunisia meanwhile were delighted to have qualified for Qatar and how they would love to put some early points on the board. This will be tighter than the odds suggest, with Tunisia often a tough side to play against but Denmark should prevail in this one.
2018 World Cup champions France get their campaign underway against Australia in what promises to be an intriguing battle. Les Blues possess one of the most exciting squads in world football and look to have another golden generation on their hands whilst the Socceroo’s are notoriously resolute and efficient in big tournaments which should add to the spectacle. France will need to get their show on the road quickly and should have too much for the Socceroo’s.
Betting tip: France to win the match – 3/10
Score Prediction: France to win 2-0 – 38/10
