France vs Bolivia
Date: Sunday, 2 June 2019
Kick-Off 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau (Nantes).
Bolivia will have the toughest test possible ahead of the Copa America kick off as they travel to Nantes to battle world champions France in a friendly on Sunday evening at Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau. Looking from the psychological point of view, the selection of opposition for this friendly might just not be the smartest for the visitors as they are not expected to pick up a positive result here.
On the other hand, France should represent a similar style to the one of Brazil’s, their first counterparts at Copa America in two weeks. Eduardo Villegas’ men just have nothing to hope for coming into these two ties. They are arguably the weakest team on their continent and they have really been struggling to produce in the final third recently. Bolivians failed to find the back of the net in four of last five friendlies which is a poor run indeed if we know the opposition involved the likes of Iraq, UAE, Korea Republic and Japan.

There are no records of previous head to head meetings between these two likes.
France vs Bolivia: Prediction
France will thus have a nice chance to keep their superb spell of form going here. They bounced back from an unsuccessful campaign in the inaugural edition of UEFA Nations League where they failed to win the top spot in group with Germany and Netherlands.
Les Bleus opened the EURO 2020 qualifying campaign in a marvellous fashion netting four goals past both Moldova and Iceland and allowing just one in total in response at the opposite end. Didier Deschamps has a deadly attacking line-up with the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud, each of whom scored two goals from opening two matches in qualifications.
Even though Deschamps will likely make plenty of changes to his usual starting line-up here, the gulf in quality between the two outfits is enormous and we would be stunned to see anything other but a comprehensive victory for the hosts on Sunday.
