France vs Australia betting tips: World Cup match preview & predictions

Its super-important for France to finish the group stage on the top of the table as the World Cup rules say that the winner of the Group C takes on the runner-up of the Group D. And considering that Argentina is likely to win the top spot in that group, France better do their job well and avoid facing such a strong opponent early on.

But, even that didnt mean that their job was done. Australias road to the World Cup was a pretty complicated one. They then had to play the International Playoffs, in which they drew Honduras. After finishing on the 3rdspot in the Group B of the World Cup Asia Qualification campaign, they had to take on Syria in the playoffs.

Bert van Marwijk, the group opener is all about damage control to stay in the run for round of 16 qualification. For me, the Socceroos are the weakest among the four sides in Group C. This match couldnt end up in anything less than a comfortable French win. Without a doubt, this is a huge mismatch on paper and Australia certainly lack the required resources to challenge at this level.

France vs Australia Head-to-Head Stats

On the other side Australia will try to play strong in defense line and fast counterattacks will be their main objective for the match. What a great football game on World Cup to increase our betting payouts. Match France vs Australia will be a true ticket booster game and you shouldnt miss to bet on. France have seen at least three goals in nine of their last 14 matches and we expect to see lots of scoring chances, especially for France. They like to play aggressive football in attack and their main objective for this game will be to score at least two goals and not to concede. France are one of the main favourites to lift the trophy in Russia and they are absolute favourites on match against Australia. France are big favourites to top Group C and all players are eager to hammer Australia on Saturday.

Only four of the French players who started that game Giroud, Hugo Lloris, Paul Pogba and Raphael Varane are in the French World Cup squad. France and Australia have met each other times in previous matches, with Olivier Giroud scoring twice in a 6-0 win when Didier Deschamps last faced the Socceroos in 2013. Prior to that, each side had won one of the previous three, with one draw. Their only competitive meeting came at the 2001 Confederations Cup, which Australia won 1-0.

Since losing 3-2 to Colombia in March a match they were leading 2-0 after Olivier Giroud and Thomas Lemar scored France have beaten Russia, Republic of Ireland and Italy and, last time out, drew 1-1 with the USA. Against Russia, Kyllian Mbappes double and Paul Pogbas goal secured a 3-1 win, while it was Giroud and Nabil Fekir who got their pre-tournament schedule off to a winning start in a 2-0 defeat of Ireland. In Nice, France then beat Italy 3-1 with Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele in the goals after Samuel Umtitis early opener, before Mbappes late equaliser confirmed a draw with the USA in their final warm-up match. France have lost just one of their last 12 matches, and go into the game against Australia on the back of four matches without defeat.

Possible Lineups

James Vince, therefore, will continue to open the batting alongside Jonny Bairstow. England will continue to be without their first-choice opener in Jason Roy as he has failed to regain full fitness from the hamstring injury that has kept him out of the last two games. Liam Plunkett could also return, serving up swing as opposed to Mark Woods seam. Moeen Ali came in for criticism for his batting last time out and Liam Dawson is an option to bring in, but Ali generally appears to have the backing of the selectors.

Benjamin Mendy has started two of Frances three pre-tournament games at left-back, but Lucas Hernandez was preferred for the win against Italy and could get the nod to face Australia after coming off the bench against the Americans. Benjamin Pavard stepped off the bench to provide the assist for Kyllian Mbappes goal, while Ousmane Dembele had already replaced Olivier Giroud at that point. After having to come from behind to draw with USA last time out, a few of Frances key selection decisions are likely to have been settled for Didier Deschamps in that game.

Aaron Mooy pulls the strings in the middle for Australia, with the Huddersfield man heading to the World Cup on the back of a leading role in the Terriers Premier League survival last season. In goal, Matthew Ryan enjoyed a good first season in the Premier League with Brighton, and he is likely to be very busy with Frances attacking talent on Saturday. Mathew Leckie scored twice in the win against the Czech Republic, meanwhile.

England Predicted Playing 11

They followed that with three straight wins: seeing off West Indies thanks to some hostile fast bowling from Jofra Archer and Mark Wood; beating Bangladesh courtesy of Jason Roys 153; and thrashing Afghanistan after Eoin Morgan smashed 17 sixes to score 148.Last time out, however, chasing just 233 to beat Sri Lanka at Headingley, England could only muster a disappointing 212 all out in 47 overs despite Ben Stokes being left stranded on 82 not out.
