France vs Moldova Prediction
Moldova was completely flabbergasted the last match-day, with even the home advantage to lean on. They were hosting Albania as part of the qualification campaign, and within the first half itself, the guests had exerted clear domination to bring the fixture under their control.
It was an ill-tempered affair, as the hosts saw five yellow cards, in response to the three by the visiting contingent. The guests though, also added four goals of their own to the scorecard, in order to secure the victory. Embarrassingly, the home team could not open their account, despite persistent attempts.
Impressively for the visitors, four different players had chipped in with goals to completely be in command of the situation.
France meanwhile, could not avenge themselves for the loss they had been dealt at the hands of Turkey earlier in the qualification campaign. On the road, they had been defeated 0-2 by the Turks, and it was important for the world champions to win with a better goal difference, in order to avoid getting displaced to the second position in the group.
However, admiringly, Turkey held the French outfit to a 1-1 draw, that too at the latter’s home. In addition, the equalizer had come at the 81st minute for the guests.
Be that as it may, the world champions are overwhelming favorites for this week. They have the home advantage, and a practically unlimited supply of talents, compared to their counterparts. Moreover, Deschamps’s men also have the experience factor and are in form as well. On the other hand, Moldova lost eight of their former nine overall fixtures, and the last five on the road.
In fact, the team had even failed to score a single goal in their prior five away ties, and most importantly, lost to this same opponent at home, 1-4.
Taking all these factors into account, anticipate a comfortable, and huge victory for France.
