2018 World Cup Denmark Top Scorer Predictions
Published on 30/01/18
Denmark have been infrequent qualifiers for the World Cup Finals, and their current squad lacks experience on the football’s biggest stages having failed to qualify for the finals of both the 2014 World Cup in Rio and Euro 2016 in France.
However, after finishing second to Poland in World Cup Qualifying, they don’t look to have fared too badly in the World Cup Finals Draw having been drawn in Group C with France, Peru and Australia.
Currently second-favourites for Group C, Denmark have a decent chance of reaching the knockout stages, meaning there’s a decent chance that the 2018 World Cup Denmark Top Scorer Market may go to form.
2018 World Cup Denmark Top Scorer Betting
Christian Eriksen 5/4, Nicolai Jorgensen 5/1, Andreas Cornelius 6/1, Thomas Delaney 6/1, Nicklas Bendtner 10/1
25-year-old attacking-midfielder who has scored 37 goals in 157 appearances for Tottenham since 2013, and previously scored 25 goals in 113 games for Ajax. He’s also scored 21 goals for Denmark in 75 appearances.However, his record for his country has been excellent in the last two years, with 15 goals in 18 games. He was also Denmark’s highest-scorer with 8 goals in qualifying, and usually takes Denmark’s penalties.
27-year-old striker who has currently scored 26 goals in 43 games for Feyenoord, which is a slight improvement in his goals per game record for previous club Copenhagen where he scored 43 goals in 92 games. However, he is not as prolific for Denmark with just 8 goals in 28 games, and he scored just 2 of Denmark’s goals in World Cup Qualifying.
24-year-old striker who scored 29 goals in 82 games for Copenhagen before being transferred to Atalanta where he has scored 3 goals in 14 games. Scored 8 goals in 19 games for Denmark, but only scored 2 of those in World Cup Qualifying.
26-year-old midfielder who scored roughly a goal every 10 games in 244 appearances for Copenhagen, and has bettered that by scoring 5 goals in 32 games since his 2017 move to Werder Bremen. Also scored 4 goals in 21 games for Denmark, but 3 of those came in one match against Armenia.
The 30-year-old ex-Arsenal striker is enjoying the best goal-scoring period of his career with 19 goals in 29 games for current club Rosenberg, and he’s one of the few Danish players with big-tournament experience having scored a goal at both the 2010 World Cup and 2012 European Championship. He’s also scored 30 goals in 79 games for Denmark, though scored just once in five games for Denmark in 2017.
Group games against Peru and Australia appear to give Denmark every chance of scoring a few goals in Group C and, as they also have a good chance of making it to the knockout stages, they should get at least one more game. That means this can hopefully go to form – and Denmark’s penalty taker Christian Eriksen stands out having scored 8 goals in World Cup Qualifying, and having been in great form for Tottenham this season.
