Andorra vs France
Euro 2020 Qualification
Date: Tuesday 11th June 2019
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadi Nacional d’Andorra (Andorra La Vella)
Minnows Andorra will play a massive match when they will host World Champions France on Tuesday night. The Estadi Nacional d’Andorra holds just 3,000 fans and a lack of atmosphere and an artificial pitch will be the biggest obstacles facing France.
In reality this is a miss match and France the best team in the world will be playing part timers, perhaps that is the magic of football though. France are as much as 1/100 to win this game although we can get as little as 1/33 for the same result. Even if Andorra drew this match it would be seen as one of the biggest shocks ever in football.
Andorra have lost all of their 3 matches so far in their Euro 2020 group and have conceded 6 goals and are yet to score, that doesn’t look like changing on Tuesday night.
France suffered a surprise loss away to Turkey 2-0 in their last group game so it is very important that the players focus and get the job done in this game. The Turkey loss ended a 4 game winning streak for Didier Deschamps players. France need to win as even though they have 6 points alongside Turkey, Iceland are the threat to both sides as they also have six points.
Andorra vs France: Head to Head
The nations have only played once before which France won 4-0 this was back in 2004.
Andorra vs France: Prediction
Backing France to win has no value. There isn’t even temptation in the handicap where we can get Andorra to start with 5 goals, because their price goes into odds on and France will have every chance to get at least 5 on the night.
So we must look at other markets. Florian Thauvin has had a good season for Marseille and if Deschamps picks the player get on him to show enough quality to score in this game. The attacking midfielder can be backed at even money.
We will also back France to be winning at 15 minutes, the price is decent value and we expect the champions to start strong after their defeat against Turkey in their last game.
Andorra vs France: Bet Tips:
France to be leading at 15 minutes at 2.70 (17/10)
Anytime goalscorer: Florian Thauvin (France) at 2.00 (1/1).
