Tip France Australia
on 16 June 2018
France takes on Australia in the World Cup this week and they will be hoping for a bright start to their campaign. Deschamps' men are one of the favourites to win the tournament and the fans will be expecting a big performance from the players. France will be disappointed with their showing in the Euros and this is a great chance for them to make amends. In terms of talent, France are one of the very best in the world and Australia will have to be at their best to get something here. The Aussies are severely out of their depth here and the likes of Cahill and Mooy are unlikely to be able to bail them out against an opposition of France's calibre. France cannot afford to drop points against these teams and they will be desperate for a win.
Our bet explained
- France are unbeaten in 5 of their last 6 games.
- Australia are unbeaten in 5 of their last 6 games.
- France have scored 7 goals in their last 2 meetings against Australia.
- Australia are undefeated in 17 of their last 18 matches (FIFA World Cup).
- France are undefeated in 9 of their last 10 matches (FIFA World Cup).
Our France Australia tip
Both teams are in good form heading into this game but France are certainly better on paper. They will be full of confidence and their recent record against Australia will give them a lot of belief. Australia will make life difficult for Deschamps' men but France are likely to edge this eventually.
