France vs Bulgaria: Les Bleus are looking strong

Kick-off: 2010, 08/06/2021

Stadium: Stade de France

TV: Sky Sports

World champions France look in fine shape ahead of Euro 2020 and are expected to make short work of Bulgaria in their final warm-up match.

The visitors have only beaten Gibraltar in 13 outings over the past 10 months and are listed as low as 71 in the FIFA rankings.

Punters can get 19/20 for Les Bleus to win both halves of this contest and that is our first France vs Bulgaria prediction.

A Look At France’s Betting Odds

France are favourites for more success this summer following their Russia 2018 triumph, despite having to take on Germany, Portugal and Hungary in Group F at Euro 2020.

Les Bleus only dropped two points when topping last year’s Nations League pool ahead of Portugal, Croatia and Sweden.

They kicked off their World Cup qualifying campaign with a sloppy 1-1 draw versus Ukraine but then prevailed in Kazakhstan and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Last Wednesday brought a 3-0 friendly win over Wales in Nice, with Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele on target.

Although the Dragons had Neco Williams sent off on 26 minutes, that was still a statement of intent.

The recalled Karim Benzema missed a penalty but told TF1: “It was a very good return. I felt good all match and got stronger as it went on.

“We still have time to fine-tune our attacking understanding. We tried things.

“I was proud to pull on the shirt again and I wanted to go out there and show what I can do.”

There is definitely a feelgood factor about France these days and whichever players are selected seem intent on maintaining the momentum.

Looking at the France vs Bulgaria odds, we like 5/1 for another 3-0 success.

A Look At Bulgaria’s Betting Odds

Bulgaria’s hopes of reaching Euro 2020 were dashed when they were beaten 3-1 at home by Hungary in the play-offs.

Nations League relegation was another blow, having finished bottom of a pool featuring Wales, Finland and Republic of Ireland.

World Cup qualifying began with home defeats against Switzerland and Italy, before a goalless draw with Northern Ireland in Belfast.

In the current run of international friendlies, Bulgaria drew 1-1 with Slovakia prior to a 1-0 loss to Russia.

New head coach Yasen Petrov has picked a pretty inexperienced squad and the emphasis appears to be on preparing for more World Cup action in September.

Let’s finish off our France vs Bulgaria betting tips by taking 11/5 for Les Bleus to lead 1-0 at half-time.
