Russia vs France Predictions

France’s World Cup preparations took a slight halt on Friday as they blew a 2-1 lead against Colombia. The Russians have had a few tough games as of late and this is another one on Tuesday, however, they did put up a good show against Spain not so long ago while they had a host of chances to score against Brazil on Friday. France’s defence wasn’t too convincing against Colombia last week and we’d be surprised if they kept a clean sheet here. Despite that, we still expect Didier Deschamps’ side to win. The first of our Russia vs France predictions is for France to win and both teams to score, and it’s best odds at 3/1 with William Hill.


France have scored first in six of their last seven matches which indicates that they like to start matches in good fashion. We’d be surprised if they didn’t bag first here, and we are taking a chance on Olivier Giroud to be the one to get on the scoresheet. The Frenchman has netted 30 goals in 69 appearances for his National side, and the Chelsea striker averages around a goal every two matches in friendlies. Giroud scored first against Colombia on Friday, and we are backing him to net first against Russia. Our second tip for our Russia vs France predictions is for Olivier Giroud to score first at odds of 4/1 with Betfred.


Both sides have been involved in a lot goals recently. Russia have been involved in nine goals in their latest two matches against Brazil and Spain. To their credit, Russia scored three against Spain, so we expect them to contribute to the scoreline here as they build up to the Russia vs Saudi Arabia opening World Cup fixture. Meanwhile, France were beaten 3-2 against Columbia on Friday, and with both managers expected to change their starting 11’s up ahead of the World Cup, we think there’s a good chance of there being a few goals in this one. The last of our Russia vs France betting tips is going to be an Over/Under 2.5 goals prediction, and we think the match will end with over 2.5 goals, this is best odds at 11/10 with Betfair.
