France vs Australia

Group D of the World Cup kicks off on November 22 with France aiming to get their tournament off to a strong start when they take on Australia at the Al Janoub Stadium.

France vs Australia Predictions and Best Odds

France Current Run of Form

France have been very spotty all year in competitive matches. The European side won just a single Nations League group game in 2022, losing three and drawing the other two. That came off the back of the team dropping six points in their relatively weak World Cup Qualifying group.

Despite being one of the top-ranked sides in the world, all is not well in the French camp.

Australia Current Run of Form

The Australian national team scraped through the Asian World Cup Qualifiers, finishing third in their group by quite a distance. They squeaked through the playoffs with a penalty shootout win over Peru but have looked very unconvincing at times.

They are playing much worse than their 38th-place world ranking would suggest and may struggle to gain a single win in this tournament.

Recent Head to Head

These two sides have only met five times in total with France having the much better record. Currently, the head-to-head sits at three wins for Les Bleus, one draw, and one win for the opposition. The last time these two teams played was actually in the 2018 World Cup when goals from Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogbal got the win for their side.

France vs Australia Prediction

Despite their inconsistent form, the World Cup holders will likely come away with the win. The spotlight is on them to retain their title and their talented squad will no doubt live up to the occasion.

Current Odds: France vs Australia

Didier Deschamps’ side is a heavy favourite to take the spoils with SkyBet offering odds of 1/4. Australia are clear underdogs with massive odds of 11/1 to come away as the victors.
