Venue: Stade de France.

France will be looking to recover after a shock defeat to Sweden this Tuesday when they will host England in one of the European classics of the game.

Stade de France is ready for a yet another spectacle and the 31st episode of a rivalry between two of the most prominent European teams.

France

Didier Deschamps was in shock after unexplainable move by Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris in the dying minutes of the qualifier with Sweden.

The French goalkeeper left his goal without any need and lost the ball to allow Ola Toivonen bag the match-winner for the Swedish side who now took over France at the top of the standings in the group A.

We don’t expect many changes to Deschamps’ starting lineup because he’ll want to stay competitive against the old rivals.

England

The Three Lions don’t share French problems yet in their qualifying campaign.

The surprising draw with Scotland does not compromise their top spot in the group F, but Gareth Southgate will want to see his team retaining the dominant defensive form.

Leigh Griffith’s beauties from free-kicks were the only two goals England have conceded in six qualifying fixtures.

France vs England: Head to head

The Three Lions have been much more successful in the history of head to head meetings as they lead the tie by nine wins ahead of their 31st clash with France.

This includes a 2-0 win for England in a friendly from November 2015 when Dele Alli and Wayne Rooney scored goals for the team then led by Roy Hodgson.

France vs England: Prediction

France have significantly improved ever since that clash since Les Blues became one of the most attractive sides in the world with the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe.

The hosts will be much more motivated to fix the poor impression from the defeat to Sweden and we’ll back them to clinch the home win at 10/11.

France vs England: Bet Tips

The top betting pick will be France to win at the odds of 1.95 by Betfair.

The second bet is Kylian Mbappe to score anytime at 2.75.
