France Preview – Will Les Bleus make it six wins on the spin?

France have been in stunning form for the last couple of years. Didier Deschamps’ troops have lost just one game in normal time since a 2-0 reverse in Turkey in a UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier way back in June 2019.

France finished 2021 with five consecutive wins, seeing off Finland (twice), Belgium, Spain and Kazakhstan. In October, they won the UEFA Nations League, beating the Spaniards in the final. They will be looking to retain their Nations League crown in the upcoming campaign.

Our betting prediction:
France to win to nil

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1302 GMT, Thursday 24 March)

This may only be a friendly game, but France go into every match looking to win, and Friday will be no different. The 2018 FIFA World Cup winners will be a tough nut to crack in this one.

Ivory Coast Preview – Tough test for the Elephants

This will be Ivory Coast’s first game since losing to Egypt in the Round of 16 of the Africa Cup of Nations in January. The loss to the Egyptians was only their second defeat since October 2020.

Patrice Beaumelle’s Elephants face two of the world’s best nations in the next week. After taking on France in Marseille, Ivory Coast travel to London to play Gareth Southgate’s England at Wembley Stadium. Can they give a good account of themselves on their European tour?
