France vs Paraguay
International Friendly Match
Date: Friday, 2nd June 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK Time
Venue: Stade de la Route-de-Lorient.
While many of the stars of the French national team may well be plotting their future club careers, they have a few things left to sort out on the international stage before they jet off for their summer holidays. We are backing Les Bleus to be in among the goals when they host Paraguay on Friday and a bet of over 2.5 goals is available at 19/20 with bet365. For our correct score tip we think that backing France to claim a 3-1 win is the way to go and this is available at 12/1 with the same site.
Didier Deschamps is the envy of many an international manager with the embarrassment of riches he has available to him and his side often live up to their billing as one of the best sides in the world. Les Blues have an important World Cup qualifier against Sweeden coming up next week and with Deschamps spoilt for choice, there will be plenty of players who will be determined to prove their worth. With both Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud fit and available, they have both the pace and power up front to trouble any defence in the world.
The French also know that in Paraguay they face a side who have been susceptible at the back. The South Americans have failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last 10 matches and have conceded heavily when they have faced their continents big hitters. They are also in bad shape for qualification for the 2018 World Cup and look to have little left to pay for this season.
France vs Paraguay: Head to Head Stats
The nations have played just four times in their history, where France have 2 wins and there has been 2 draws. The last time they played was in 2014 in France where we witnessed a 1-1 draw. Apart from the very first game in 1958 where France won 7-3 the other matches have all had few goals, that equates to a 75% chance of seeing under 2.5 goals.
France vs Paraguay: Prediction
It’s never a great time to stage a friendly match in between the end of the domestic season and the Champions League final. This match will feel like an exhibition game and we think it will be hard for the players to really motivate themselves. It’s a heatwave in France too which won’t help. We expect few goals.
