France vs Denmark Predictions

These two sides met in the World Cup grand finals last year and Denmark claimed a convincing 34-29 victory. The Danes looked much better throughout the EURO 2024, while France struggled on a couple of occasions. I will back the Scandinavian side to win in a -1.5 handicap.
  • France vs Denmark Predictions
  • Head to Head
  • France Form
  • Denmark Form

  • Denmark have won 21 of their last 23 matches.
  • Denmark beat France 34-29 in their last head to head match last January.

Head to Head

France have a 15-12 advantage against Denmark with 1 draw in 28 matches.

The most recent head to head duel was won by Denmark 34-29 in January 2023.

France Form

Les Bleus advanced to the grand finals thanks to the dramatic victory against Sweden 34-30 in overtime, while they scored the equalizer in the last second of regulation time.

France opened the EURO 2024 with a convincing victory in the first round against North Macedonia 39-29 with Hugo Descat bagging seven goals.  

They struggled in their second appearance against Switzerland, winning only one point in a 26-26 draw.  

Third round clash against the tournament hosts Germany was a massive step up for the French side, beating the opposition 33-30.  

Les Bleus had a successful second round, beating their old foes Croatia 34-32 and then Iceland 39-32. They made it three in a row and clinched semi-finals with a 33-28 victory against Austria. 

France wrapped up the second phase with a win against Hungary 35-32 in a match where they rested some of the key stars for the semi-finals action.

Denmark Form

The Danes struggled in the first half against Germany in the semi-finals which they lost 14-12, but bounced back later on to advance to the grand finals 29-26.

Denmark left zero room for an upset in their 2nd phase duels against the Netherlands, beating the opposition 39-27 and then proceeding to beat Sweden in a narrow clash 28-27. 

They were not troubled by Norway in the third appearance, beating their Scandinavian rivals 29-23. After securing the semi-finals, the Danes used a combined line up against Slovenia and lost that clash 28-25, which had zero effect on the overall standings.

The reigning World Cup 2023 champions had no issues in the first phase, demonstrating great defense against the Czech Republic and winning the duel 23-14.   

They carried over the maximum number of points from the first phase thanks to the convincing 37-27 victory against Portugal in the final match. 


The current Denmark roster is arguably one of the strongest in handball history ever seen. They beat France in the World Cup 2023 grand finals, and I think they will do it again in Koln.
