France vs Denmark: At what time and on which channel to watch the final of the World Handball Championship?

HANDBALL Sunday at 9 pm, the Blues face the Swedes, in Stockholm, to try to get a seventh star of World Handball Championship.

The France team, Olympic champions, are aiming for a double on Sunday.
Mikkel Hansen’s Denmark, the two-time defending champions, want revenge after losing the final of the Tokyo Olympics.
This final will be played at the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, which can accommodate 30,000 spectators, as in the semi-final.

By beating Sweden in the semifinals of the world championship on Friday night (31-26), the France team produced a dazzling performance. This opened the doors to the final, which they will play against another candor of world handball, Denmark. The result is a seventh-world title for a selection that already deserves it.

At what time and on which channel to watch final France – Denmark?
The final of the world championship between Les Bleus and Denmark will be broadcast on TF1, in clear, and on beIN Sports 1, only for subscribers, this Sunday, January 29 at 9 pm. You can also follow the handball final France vs Denmark live on via our live commentary.

Les Bleus know what to expect
Beaten at the gates of the final by Sweden at the 2021 World Cup (26-32) and Euro 2022 (33-34), Guillaume Gille’s players set the record straight on Friday night. From now on, they will have to fight hard against other Scandinavians, to reach Olympus.

Two-time defending champions, Denmark fears France, no doubt. Since 2011, Mikkel Hansen has faced the French team, with two victories on either side.

Carried by Vincent Gérard, excellent in the cages (13 saves) after passing the baton to Rémi Desbonnets in the quarters, France has many reasons to believe.

The newfound efficiency of Dika Mem (5/9 shooting in the semifinals) and the connection between pivots and leaders are weapons that can hurt the Danes.

In great shape, as evidenced by his roucoulettes and his throws of seven meters (4/4 in the semifinals), Kentin Mahé will also be able to guide France.

It remains to be seen on Elohim Prandi, hit in the shoulder, and Nikola Karabatic, suffering from the foot and absent from the semifinal, will be recovered.

Regardless, the France team group has the resources to replace them.

World champions 1995, 2001, 2009, 2011, 2015, and 2017 (their last final to date in the competition), the Blues would be well to add the 2023 vintage to their palmares.

Vengeful Vikings
Falling to Spain in the semi-finals, the Danes will try to achieve an unprecedented treble at the world championship, which they won in 2019 and 2021.

Considered the two best teams of the decade, France and Denmark should fight a battle that promises to be epic. And for good reason: the French beat (25-23) the Scandinavians in the final of the Tokyo Olympics in 2021, then they lost the match for third place against these same Danes at Euro 2022, after extra time.

MVP of the semi-final against the Spaniards, Niklas Landin will fight a remote duel with Vincent Gerard. It is difficult to predict the outcome given the level displayed by the two men.

This handball classic will also be an opposition between Mikkel Hansen (35), a real star in his country, and Nikola Karabatic (38), who could if he plays, play his last world championship match…
