France vs England: Three Lions can hold Les Bleus

France vs England: Three Lions can hold Les Bleus

Kick Off: 2000, 13/06/2017

Stadium: Stade de France

TV: ITV

France and England both go into Tuesday night’s international friendly on the back of testing World Cup qualifiers and an honourable draw could be the best bet in Paris.

Dele Alli and Wayne Rooney netted in a 2-0 win for the Three Lions the last time these teams met at Wembley in November 2015.

Home advantage may help Les Bleus to come out on level terms this time, though, and we’re taking 12/5 for a draw in our France vs England betting tips.

A Look At France’s Betting Odds

France looked in fine form when warming up for a trip to Sweden by thrashing Paraguay 5-0, with Olivier Giroud hitting a hat-trick, but things did not go to plan in Solna.

Arsenal striker Giroud was again on target as Les Bleus took the lead at Friends Arena, but Sweden rallied to prevail 2-1, with a blunder from Tottenham keeper Hugo Lloris giving Ola Toivonen the chance to snatch a stoppage-time winner.

That result saw Sweden go above France at the top of Group A on goal difference, while Holland are three points back in third, so that is shaping up to be a tight section on the road to Russia.

If Didier Deschamps opts to shuffle his pack here, Monaco sensation Kylian Mbappe could start and he appeals at 5/1 to score first in the France vs England odds.

A Look At England’s Betting Odds

England have a day less to recover from Saturday’s thrilling 2-2 draw with Scotland in Glasgow, where they conceded two late free-kicks from Leigh Griffiths but struck back in injury time through Harry Kane.

The Three Lions remain at the summit of Group F, but Slovakia closed to within two points and Gareth Southgate suggested he may give some fringe players a chance to shine in Paris as he considers his options for the final four qualifiers.

England will be wary of conceding any more fouls around their own area with the likes of Dimitri Payet and Paul Pogba possibly waiting to pounce, but we still think they can get something out of this game.

Les Bleus were beaten at home by Spain in a March friendly and only drew with Ivory Coast last November, so they are clearly vulnerable in such contests.

A score draw at 4/1 completes our France vs England predictions.
