Russia vs France: In one of the several international friendlies being played this Monday
On a match taking place in St. Petersburg, Russia, at the Krestovsky Stadium.
The local side Russia and the visiting side France will face off, on a match between two teams that will meet again, after their last meeting in 2016, where the Gauls won 4-2 over the Eurasian side.
The home side comes into this match on a very complicated period on several levels, not only in terms of results, but also in terms of the quality of their own roster, since a new age is beginning for the team that will organize the World Cup, who hasn’t been particularly happy on the last competitions they’ve played.
The team is coming off a poor streak of matches recently, but it is also true that they’ve faced super strong teams for a while now, playing against Brazil (0-3 loss), Spain (3-3) and Argentina (0-1 loss), being winless for 4 matches.
As for the visiting side, after a relatively quiet qualification stage and where Deschamps’ team managed to ensure their presence on the World Cup in Russia with some ease, having directly qualified for the competition, they now face the organizers of the competition, at their own soil.
The team is coming off 2 less positive results, where they’ve lost to Colombia at home (2-3) and ties against the world champions Germany (2-2), that have stopped their streak of 3 consecutive victories.
Russia vs France – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With two teams that has been having matches with some goals recently and on a match that doesn’t have much value, except for preparing for the international competition that will take place in 3 months.
I believe this encounter might end up having some goals and excitement on the score line over the course of the first 45 minutes especially.
