France vs Wales Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
One of the main contenders for lifting the title in Russia on Summer, France, host Wales on Friday evening in the friendly international match. The two sides will collide at Stade de France, the home of French national football.
France excellent performance in their group was overshadowed by the unpleasant draw from Luxembourg. Deschamps’ men failed to clinch three points against the weakest side in the group as the match ended without goals, which was particularly odd after obliterating the Netherlands with 4-0. Les Bleus have insane potential in every category of their youth squads, so several younger players might get some playtime in the first game in the national jersey.
Wales failed to reach World Cup 2018 as Serbia and Ireland finished in front of them in their respective qualification group. It was a huge blow for the team that reached semi-finals on UEFA EURO 2016, so Wales will use this game to try some new players out as new challenges will start in a year or two. Missing another major competition would be a huge disappointment for Bale & Co, so they will take this match with an utmost seriousness.
Wales are quite physical and they low-scoring games where one goal can decide the outcome, so it will be very interesting to see whether they are eager to change their approach. The majority of their games in the recent qualification stages was concluded with the result of 1-1, so it would be a surprise if the game in France saw three or more goals with both sides managing to hit the back of the net.
