  • Competition: FIFA World Cup 2022

  • Kickoff: 19:00 UTC
  • Venue: Al Janoub Stadium

The world champions will begin their title defence in Group D of the biggest stage of all. The FIFA World Cup 2022 pits Australia against the reigning world champions in the first game itself, which could be the biggest tie of the 'Continent Down Under' for quite some time. Not only as the best team in the world at the moment, but France also is the holder of the Nations League title at the moment, beating Spain in the final (back in October 2021). On the other hand, their counterparts in Australia did more than just crawl to the World Cup qualification. The Australians were unbeaten in 7 of their 10 qualification games leading to this mammoth stage. This game will test France's depth and Australia's resilience to the limit.

France vs Australia Betting Tips

The two sides had coincidentally met back in 2018 in the world cup itself. The game had ended in a 2-1 win for the eventual champions, but it came as a shocker as Australia were tipped to not score in the game. On the other hand, Australia had been thoroughly beaten in the previous meeting back in 2013 too as the scoreline reflected French dominance (6-0). We believe that France will keep a clean sheet in this game but still beat Australia by a margin of more than 2.5 goals, purely based on the atrociously talented squad depth, where goals can come from any side/position. Thus, we will be betting on an ACCA of a home win and over 2.5 goals being scored in this game with a final prediction of 4-0 in favour of the current world champions.

France will boast the best-ever front-three to ever play in any FIFA tournament as Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema and Christopher Nkunku get set to blaze Qatar with their talent and pace. Apart from this terrific trio, a few other key players to look out for are Real Madrid's Aurelien Tchouameni and Barcelona's Jules Kounde. Starting with Tchouameni, the 21-year-old has just sealed a multi-million move to the Champions League winners earlier this summer and is tipped as the best holding midfielder for his age range worldwide. On the other hand, Kounde remains a defender who can play in any position in the back-four or back-three, so much so that Chelsea FC were ready to break the bank for his signature. Tchouameni and Kounde will be our players to watch, apart from the magnificent front three.

The duo of Harry Souttar and Mitchell Duke will be absolutely crucial for the Australians. The two forwards combined for a total of 11 goals in the World Cup Qualification (AFC) earlier this year, and with the only chance to inflict damage on France being a goal - Souttar and Duke will be aching to get on the plane to Qatar. When it comes to the players who will try to keep France to the minimum advantage, Jackson Irvine is a name that pops up almost immediately. The best rated player from Australia in the playoffs, Irvine makes an average of 5 successful tackles per game and also 2 key passes for his teammates per 90. Souttar, Duke and Irvine will be our three players to watch in this game.
