Reason for France vs Australia Predictions
The action in the first round of matches in Group D continues on Tuesday evening at the Al Janoub Stadium, where the current World Cup holders, France, will take on Australia, with the French looking to make a positive start to the defense of their World title with a win over the Socceroos. France did enough to finish top of their qualifying group in Group D as they ended up six points clear of their nearest rivals, Ukraine, who did a sterling job of grabbing the runners-up spot amidst the war with Russia and playing all their qualifying games in Poland. Back to France, though, and Les Bleus picked up five wins in their eight group games with victories gained over Kazakhstan (home and away), Finland (home and away), and Bosnia & Herzegovina, although being held to draws by Ukraine (home and away) and Bosnia & Herzegovina were disappointing results. Eduardo Camavinga shows talent, he has excellent ball control, can play in multiple positions, and every team needs such a player. Antoine Griezmann is a guy who causes a lot of problems for the opponent on the left side. He is fast and unstoppable in a one-on-one game. France is walking wounded. Starting midfielders N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba are both missing from the tournament, struggling with long-term injuries since the summer.
Australia navigated their way through and lengthy and grueling qualification process in the Asian section of the World Cup qualifiers as they began by finishing top of Group B in the 2nd round phase of qualifying, courtesy of possessing an impressive 100% winning record and by a significant 10-point margin over runners-up, Kuwait. The 3rd round qualifying phase saw the initial eight groups whittled down to just two, where Australia grabbed a 3rd place finish in Group B behind the group winners, Saudi Arabia, and 2nd placed Japan, which meant that the Socceroos had to play off against Group A 3rd placed finishers, United Arab Emirates – Australia winning 2-1 to set up an Inter-Continental play-off against Peru – phew. Mathew Leckie is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
France is a big favorite in this match, and they are expected to solve the question of the winner at halftime.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
