France vs Colombia Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview – International Friendly

France World Cup

France vs Colombia predictions and betting tips for the international friendly on Friday 23rd March with an anytime goalscorer tip and correct score prediction included.

France entertain Colombia on Friday night in an international friendly that neutrals will be hoping produces the attacking quality you might expect from two offensive-minded sides.

Both countries will be competing in this summer’s World Cup in Russia, despite the South Americans leaving it late to book their spot following an extremely competitive CONMEBOL qualifying campaign.

Didier Deschamps’ rejuvenated France go into the competition as one of the World Cup betting favourites, due in no small part to the incredible depth Les Blues boast across their front line.

France vs Colombia Predictions

With France able to propose several permutations of their fabled attacking quartet formation, it’s anyone’s guess as to who might feature in the starting lineup on Friday night.

What we can probably expect, however, is some action in the penalty area. Although they have been known to draw the occasional blank – most recently in a bore draw against neighbours Switzerland – there’s a reason why France are third most fancied in the World Cup winner betting market.

Colombia, too, are nearly always good for a goal, and have registered at least once in their last five encounters. Both teams to score is 10/11 with Paddy Power, which looks good value and certainly includable for our France vs Colombia predictions this week.


France vs Colombia Anytime Goalscorer Tips

As far as an anytime goalscorer is concerned, why look any further than France’s latest poster boy Antoine Griezmann? The Atletico Madrid man is, as we’ve come to expect, having another decent campaign in Spain and would sit top of the La Liga scoring charts were it not for Leo Messi, Luis Suarez and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The ex-Sociedad forward has notched 17 times in the league already and averages almost a goal every other game for his country. I almost had to double-take when finding a price for Griezmann to bag anytime here, and Betfair are offering an incredible 8/5 on this outcome. It’s safe to say I’ll be on board and that goes in as the second of our France vs Colombia betting tips.


France vs Colombia Correct Score Predictions

Working on the basis that I envisage both teams scoring during the 90 minutes and that I also see France winning given their home advantage and superior squad, a 3-1 scoreline seems at least partially feasible.

Colombia may be ranked 13th in the FIFA World Rankings and boast the likes of Radamel Falcao in their starting XI but it’s fair to say they’re not the strongest at the back. Conceding in four of their last five tells its own story, so the 12/1 (Betfair) available on a 3-1 home victory may reel a few punters in and that’s the third of our France vs Colombia predictions of this International friendly on Friday.

Few will be surprised to see France the considerable favourites for this contest, and the fact that the game will take place in Paris only adds weight to the argument that they should be.

France vs Colombia Team News

France’s squad for the upcoming friendlies contains most of the big names you’d expect to see – with the notable exception of the ostracised Karim Benzema. Paul Pogba, Kylian Mbappe, N’golo Kante and Hugo Lloris all make the cut.

Colombia, meanwhile, have their usual mix of recognised big names and largely unknown quantities – at least to people in this country. Talisman Falcao is expected to start, possibly alongside Villarreal hitman Carlos Bacca and Spurs centre back Davinson Sanchez.
