France v Australia Preview
France host Australia on day 3 of the 2022 World Cup at The Kazan Arena, and you’ll find that all of the major sportsbooks offer France as the favourites to win this Group C clash.
France and Australia haven’t played each other since back in 2013, when France won their international friendly with a staggering 6-0 victory over the Socceroos.
It won’t be a massive surprise if France, who have one of the strongest squads in the competition, secures another win over Australia and edges closer to the next round.
France, who are one of the favourites to lift the 2022 World Cup trophy, come into the Australia match having lost only 1 of their last 6 games in all competitions.
Although Deschamps men have talent, they haven’t been able to achieve the international success they are capable of, however great things are expected from them in Qatar.
Deschamps, who was the captain when France won in 1998, has drawn a dream group, and if they beat Australia in their opening match, they should easily top the group.
This is one of the most talented French teams we’ve seen in quite a while, and it’s no surprise that sportsbooks offer them as the favourite to win their opening game against Australia.
Australia had a pretty impressive qualification for the 2022 World Cup, but they haven’t been as convincing of late, winning neither of their last 2 friendlies against Colombia and Norway.
Group C is a tough draw for Australia, but if they have a strong performance in their opening match against France, it could give them the boost they need to compete against bigger teams.
Australia have only beaten France once in the 2001 FIFA Confederations Cup, and they'll likely struggle to beat the French, who sportsbooks see as one of the favourites to win the World Cup.
Van Marwijk has a pretty decent squad, although there is some weakness in their ability to score, and their defence hasn’t looked as strong in recent games.
While a victory over France is a bit of a long shot, if Australia come out fighting, and play some of the best football they've played in years, it could be a closer match than people imagine.
