France vs Paraguay: Les Bleus tipped to prove class apart

France vs Paraguay: Les Bleus tipped to prove class apart

Kick Off: 2000, 02/06/2017

Stadium: Roazhon Park

France will warm up for next week’s World Cup qualifier in Sweden by entertaining Paraguay in Rennes on Friday night and are expected to secure a confidence-boosting win.

Les Bleus have named an attacking squad for those two fixtures and another international friendly versus England and look a team to keep on the right side of.

We’re kicking off our France vs Paraguay betting tips by snapping up 87/100 for the hosts to win by more than one goal.

A Look At France’s Betting Odds

Since reaching the Euro 2016 final on home turf, France have continued to impress, dropping just two points in five games to comfortably lead their World Cup qualifying group.

Their last three friendlies have produced mixed results; winning 3-1 in Italy, drawing 0-0 against Ivory Coast and losing 2-0 to Spain.

However, Didier Deschamps now has great strength in depth at his disposal, especially up front, where Monaco sensation Kylian Mbappe joins established stars such as Antoine Griezmann, Olivier Giroud, Dimitri Payet and Alexandre Lacazette.

The 17/10 on offer for Les Bleus to score three times or more takes the eye from the France vs Paraguay odds.

A Look At Paraguay’s Betting Odds

Paraguay started their World Cup campaign in decent fashion, picking up three wins and home draws against Brazil and Argentina in the first seven rounds of fixtures.

They have since lost five of their next seven matches, though, and now lie eighth in the table, five points off an automatic qualification spot.

There was a surprise 1-0 victory in Argentina last October, but Paraguay have generally been struggling for goals, drawing a blank in four of those losses.

Les Bleus have Hugo Lloris between the posts, a solid defence and can call on N’Golo Kante in midfield, so 25/4 for a 3-0 home win completes our France vs Paraguay predictions.
