France vs Australia Betting Tip
France vs Australia | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
After a huge disappointment two years ago, and a defeat in the last match of the EURO 2016, Gauls are determined to do something spectacular in Russia. They have all that it takes to be one of the best teams in this tournament. No.1 in Group C should be secured without some bigger issues, as they do not have some spectacular rivals. The Aussies are here after an exhausting series of playoff games, in which they had some luck, we have to add. This is not a team from couple years ago, who was able to get into the fight for the knockout stage. However, they are still capable of making some surprise.
Didier Deschamps clearly stated that France wants to win the title here, which means that the game against Australia is something where they have to take all three points. The Socceroos are going to be very motivated to make a sensation. Picking up one point here would be fantastic for van Marwijk’s boys. There is no pressure on their shoulders, but still, France has much more quality. Anything but their clean win is a sensational outcome.
When looking at the squad of the French national team, we see the names which make you super-excited. Mbappe, Griezmann, Pogba, Martial, Varane, and others, are causing every opponent to be frightened. Above all, they have an excellent coach, who knows how to win titles and play these sorts of tournaments. Most of you might think that France is offensively oriented assembly, but it is quite the opposite. They allowed only six goals in 10 matches of the qualifiers while scoring 18. They prefer to keep their own goal protected first and then to hunt for opponent’s mistake.
There is an obvious contrast in quality, between Australia’s games at home and away. It looks like they are two totally different teams. Aussies haven’t won in nine straight matches away from the home soil. Seven draws and two losses, is the record, and it is not very encouraging for their fans. If it weren’t for Tim Cahill to save them against Syria, this squad would watch the World Cup only on television. Style of play they prefer is tough with many contacts and duels on the midfield. But as soon as they concede the first goal, everything softens, and the defense collapses.
France vs Australia Head to Head
Back in 2001, Australia made a huge surprise when they defeated France at the Confederation Cup with a minimal result, 1-0. But the most recent match between these two nations has been a disaster for the Aussies. The Gauls destroyed them with 6-0. That happened in 2013, and the majority of the players who will play now played back then. In general, we saw four meetings throughout history, and France has two wins, along with one draw and one win of their rivals.

France vs Australia Top Betting Tip: 3-0 for France
We predict that Australia is going to defend for a while, but when they allow the opener, it is pretty much going to be cat and mouse play. Without any intention to offend anyone, we just have to say that Aussies do not have the quality to play with France. Each and every part of their team is much weaker than opponents. Comfortable and easy win of the Gauls is our final choice, 3-0.
