France enter their clash with Albania in Paris without Karim Benzema, Philippe Mexes and Bacary Sagna, who are all missing through injury.
Arsenal full-back Sagna was named in the original 23-man squad, but suffered a broken leg in the North London derby last weekend after colliding with an advertising hoarding.
In response to this setback, French coach Laurent Blanc has given a first ever call-up to Lille right-back Mathieu Debuchy.
Despite the injuries, France are still clear favourites to win, although 3Way odds of 1/10 are unlikely to entice many into a bet. Albania, on the other hand, are priced at 18/1 to stun the Stade de France and go home with all three points, with the draw at a huge 8/1.
These two nations have only ever met three times before, with France winning on each occasion. The last match came just a month ago in the Albanian capital of Tirana and the 1998 World Cup winners emerged as 2-1 victors.
You can find odds of 25/2 on the two teams producing the same outcome on Friday evening. All new customers using their free £25 bet on a repeat scoreline would win £337.50 if successful.
In losing to France in September, Albania did at least claim some pride by winning the second half 1-0, but this is unlikely to happen again, as reflected by odds of 17/1.
France lead Group D by one point from of Bosnia & Herzegovina with the two countries set to clash in the final qualifying game on Tuesday.
If, as expected, France beat Albania and Bosnia beat their Friday night opponents, Luxembourg, then the French would need only to avoid defeat to Bosnia to seal automatic qualification for next summer’s tournament in Poland and Ukraine.
