Moldova vs France
Europe – Euro Qualifiers
Date: Friday, 22nd March 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Stadionul Zimbru (Chişinău).
Moldova is massively on the back-foot for this one. They are taking on the current world champions, while they themselves were included in the bottom-most tier of the recent Nations League.
The manner in which France cruised to victory in the World Cup was actually scary. They did not even have to shed a single drop of sweat the whole tournament, and even in the final, it seemed like the team was jogging for half of the time.
Presence of some generational talents like Kylian Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele, Paul Pogba, N’golo Kante etc bravely being led by Didier Deschamps, has raised their stature in world football even more. The team would really love to top it off with a continental title as well.

Moldova vs France Prediction
It’s really a pointless exercise for Moldova fans to even hope against hope for at least a decent showing in this tie. They are going against easily the best team in the world for their opener in this continental expedition. Moreover, the French do have some scores to settle. In the last edition of the Euros, they lost against Portugal in the final.
The game which went to extra time, saw the Portuguese win with a single goal, even without their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo. Taking a lesson from that defeat, France has come a long way and rightfully took the world crown. But it isn’t over yet. They are trying to replicate Spain’s domination in the world stage a decade back.
Moreover, France lost twice in their last 25 games, while Moldova won just thrice in their last 25. And two of them came against San Marino, a team which is widely touted as one of the worst in the world.
Expect a comfortable French win this Friday.
