Ukraine may have already qualified for Euro 2012, but that will not stop them from wanting to assert their dominance over former European and world champions France.
The home side secured automatic passage into the finals of the contest, thanks to the fact Ukraine and Poland will co-host the competition.
However, with manager Oleg Blokhin hoping to make his country European champions on home soil, he will be looking to beat France, who are still considered a major scalp in spite of their stuttering form.
Les Bleus drew 1-1 with Belarus in midweek and manager Laurent Blanc is said to have been furious at the failure to record a victory against a side France would normally be expected to beat.
A similar scoreline in Monday’s match would see those using their bwin £25 free bet walk away with £162.50.
France are the slight favourites at football betting odds of 3/2, while Ukraine are priced at 8/5 and a draw is 43/20.
Those who think Blanc’s men will bounce back after dropping points to Belarus could back the away side to win heavily.
A 3-0 win for France is priced at 25/1 and a successful wager on this scoreline would pay out a huge £650 if football betting enthusiasts use their bwin £25 free bet to predict such a result.
Meanwhile, those who believe they can guess how many goals there will be in the match might fancy a flutter on three being scored at 7/5.
Correctly guessing five or more goals could net you £193.75 on a £25 bet on bwin.com, while a similar successful wager on both teams scoring in the first half would return £108.25, thanks to bwin.com’s price of 330/100.
Despite their 1-1 draw in Minsk, France occupy top spot in Group D – four points ahead of closest rivals Belarus.
The next competitive match for the French is in September, when they will travel to Albania looking to bring back all three points.
A £25 stake on France to beat Ukraine would return £62.50. New customers can register here to receive a £25 free bet.
