France will win

France – Australia Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 04:00

Despite being regarded as hot favourites to win EURO 2016, France eventually suffered a loss to Portugal in the final of the tournament in their homeland. A man to watch in Didier Deschamps team will be Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann, who helped los Rojiblancos beat Olympique Marseille in the Europa League final. The Australians will, as always, rely on veteran Tim Cahill against France, but seeing that the Socceroos failed to impress in the qualifiers, we predict les Tricolores will emerge triumphant in their World Cup opener. France kick off their World Cup campaign with a match against Australia and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturdays football game against the Socceroos. Didier Deschamps, though, remained in charge of the French national team and the experienced tactician and his men certainly want to go all the way at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals.

France is favorite but if Ozzie survive first half, then anything is possible. There is one really important thing to notice. To reach first place, they had to beat teams such are Sweden, Netherlands and Bulgaria. Australians do not possess great technique but they are hard working crew. Kinsmen of Asterix and Obelix lately changed formation to more offensive 4-3-3. On the other side, endurance is questionable because they concede in second part of the game on the regular basis. France have really strong attackers and they expect a lot of them. After those matches, France played seven more friendlies of which they lost only one. France scores more often in first half of the match which only confirms that physical strength is on their side. France finished their Euro qualifiers in first place with seven wins, two draws and only one defeat. In six of those seven games France scored at least two times. Competition was really strong.

This month, they won 4-0 against the Czech Republic Mathew Leckie scoring twice and then left it late to beat Hungary in their final warm-up game, courtesy of a stoppage-time own goal in a 2-1 win. After sealing World Cup qualification with a Mile Jedinak-inspired 3-1 win against Honduras, Australia team have played four friendlies and won the most recent two. A crushing 4-1 defeat in Norway was first up in March, despite Jackson Irvine giving the Socceroos the lead, but defensive pride was restored with a goalless draw against Colombia.

Latest Betting Tips and Previews

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.

Daniel Arzani stepped off the bench to score in the win against Hungary last time out, bit Robbie Kruse and Mathew Leckie have started both matches on the wings, so Arzani may have to make do with a place on the bench. Andrew Nabbout started both games up front instead. Tim Cahill appears unlikely to start for Australia at the World Cup having appeared for just ten minutes in the two warm-up matches.

Pogba is a central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as an attacking and a defensive midfielder as well. It has to be noted that Paul Pogba won four Serie A trophies with Juventus. He produced a fine display in the 2013/2014 Champions League final against Barcelona, but Juve suffered a 3-1 loss to Barca in the Olympiastadion Berlin clash.

Expert Verdict: France are big favourites to top Group C and start their 2018 World Cup campaign against an Australian side who needed the play-offs to get through to Russia. New manager Bert van Marwijk has overseen a turnaround in Australia's recent form with back-to-back wins in their two friendlies this month, but it is difficult to see them stopping a France team who have scored 17 goals in their last eight matches.

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.

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.
