France vs USA Preview and Predictions

France vs USA
International Friendly
Date: Saturday, 9 June 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Groupama Stadium (Decines-Charpieu).

France have connected a three-game winning streak and host USA for their Friendly on Saturday desperate to retain such a consistency ahead of the trip to Russia. They’ve bagged wins over Russia in March, Republic of Ireland in May, and Italy in early June – which will have them very confident ahead of the clash at Groupama Stadium!

USA have no high stakes involved as they failed to make it to the World Cup amid a thriller CONCACAF campaign and Dave Sarachan has been trying out some new options since then, seeing quite mixed success. Stars and Stripes have earned two wins in their last five outings, with two draws and a single loss seen along the way.

However, the loss to Republic of Ireland came just a week ago and it saw a streak of two wins in a row ended, which will come as a disappointment. Les Bleus will now hope to capitalize on that and outclass the World Cup absentees with a rotated line-up, lifting their team spirits still early in June.

France vs USA: Head-to-head

  • France have beaten the rivals 1-0 in the sides’ only head-to-head clash so far.
  • The sides have never met for a competitive matchup and this will be the first clash in seven years.
  • Both have been scoring and conceding goals recently so we expect a more thrilling contest this time around.

France vs USA: Predictions

We will now back France to bag a win but not without a goal conceded, as we stick our necks out for a Home win & Both teams to score at an eye-catching 3.60. We have seen them regularly concede goals and this could be further evidence for such a bet despite coming as heavy favourites to win.

USA have bagged at least a goal on each of their last four trips away from home and although they’ve struggled to return to the winning ways, we do feel they’ll put on a solid challenge on the day too. We thus hope to see goals at Groupama Stadium and we’ll also go for Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.65.

France vs USA Betting Tips

  • France to win & Both teams to score @ 3.60
