France Tipped To Beat England At The Stade De France

France and England are both looking to bounce back from disappointing 2018 World Cup Qualifying results when they meet in Tuesday night's international friendly at The Stade de France...

  • England have won one of their last seven meetings with France - Drawn Two, Lost Four
  • France have won six of their past eight friendlies overall - Drawn One, Lost One
  • Olivier Giroud has scored eight goals in France's last eight friendly matches

World Cup Woes

The normally dependable Hugo Lloris made a dreadful error to allow Ola Toivonen in to score during France's surprise 2-1 defeat to Sweden on Friday night and it was a result that leaves the French in second place in Group B, behind the Swedes on goal difference.

It was by no means a disaster for Didier Deschamps but it has cranked up the pressure on the French manager, who is under pressure to give youth a chance.

Deschamps boasts a wealth of options and it seems likely that he will unleash Kylian Mbappe, Thomas Lemar and Ousmane Dembele upon England this week, and France look to be worthy favourites at 19/20 (Paddy Power).

As for England, they looked very leggy during their 2-2 draw against Scotland as they stayed top of Group F thanks to a last-gasp equaliser from Harry Kane, although the lack of depth in their squad was highlighted by Jake Livermore's presence in the centre of midfield.
Match Odds:

Goals Galore?

Gareth Southgate's England have been decent to watch but they might do well to repeat their 2-0 win over France from their last friendly meeting in November 2015. England had gone six without a win against Les Bleus (drew two, lost four) before that win and their form in friendlies since that rare victory is a concern - won four, drawn one, lost two,

Five of their past seven friendlies have gone over 2.5 goals and the France win combined with over 2.5 goals in total can be backed at 23/10 with Coral.

That looks like a decent option as France have only lost one (to Spain) of their past eight friendlies since November 2015 (won six, drawn one) and six of those have produced at least three goals.

Olivier Giroud has been something of a flat-track bully for the French during those eight friendlies as he has scored eight goals in them and the Arsenal striker is 5/1 to score first or 7/4 to score at anytime (Bet Victor) on Tuesday night.

Deschamps should give youth a chance at the Stade de France but it might be the experienced Giroud who brings home the bacon.
