France warmed up for their World Cup triumph with some professional displays and Didier Deschamps is expected to target a similar preparation for Euro 2020.
Wales will also be involved in this summer’s big tournament but are rated a level below Les Bleus on all known form.
We’re going with the favourites to win to nil at 4/5 for our first France vs Wales prediction.
A Look At France’s Betting Odds
France know they will need to be fully up to speed before facing Germany, Portugal and Hungary in Group F at Euro 2020.
They have not rested on their laurels since Russia 2018 and won eight of 10 games to top their qualifying pool.
Being successful in a Nations League group featuring Portugal, Croatia and Sweden helped to maintain the feelgood factor.
N’Golo Kante deserves a rest after helping Chelsea to Champions League glory but Deschamps can still call on the vast majority of his established stars.
Karim Benzema is back in the squad for the first time since 2015 and it would be nice for him to return in style.
Following a fine campaign with Real Madrid, 3/1 for the 33-year-old to break the deadlock stands out from the France vs Wales odds.
A Look At Wales’ Betting Odds
Wales memorably made it all the way through to the semi-finals five years ago but are outsiders to qualify from Group A at Euro 2020 against Italy, Switzerland and Turkey.
Edging out Slovakia and Hungary for second place in a qualifying pool won by Croatia showed good spirit.
The Dragons have also earned promotion to the top level of the Nations League after seeing off Finland, Republic of Ireland and Bulgaria.
This year has brought a gutsy 1-0 World Cup win over Czech Republic but they did previously have their limitations exposed in a 3-1 loss to Belgium.
Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey remain the flagbearers but both are fragile enough to make keeping them fresh for more important dates a sensible approach.
We’re sticking with Les Bleus to oblige and 19/4 for a 2-0 scoreline is added to our France vs Wales betting tips.
Bosnia and Herzegovina 0-1 FRANCE – Griezmann
WALES 1-0 Czech Republic – James
Head-to-head: France 2-0 Wales, France 0-1 Wales, France 6-1 Wales
