France steps up their Autumn Internationals as they play host to the All Blacks on Saturday in a superb fixture in Paris.

Les Bleus have won their two matches of the Autumn so far, but this is their toughest match yet.

They will be facing a wounded New Zealand side who were outplayed by Ireland last weekend. That makes the tourists dangerous.

France Preview – Can France deliver?

Wins over Argentina and Georgia are certainly not going to give too much insight into France at the moment.

That’s what Les Bleus have produced so far in the Autumn Internationals.

Earlier this year France had gone into the Six Nations as favourites but came out with only a W3 L2 record.

The defeats came against England and Scotland in the competition.

In their last eight internationals, France have posted a W4 L4 record, but that doesn’t tell the whole story.

Each of the four losses in that sequence were by a margin of no more than four points.

In the match outright for Saturday’s clash with New Zealand, France are 2/1 underdogs* (odds recorded 17:20 GMT on November 18th, 2021)

Our betting prediction:
NZ 1-12 Winning Margin

* (odds recorded 17:20 GMT on November 18th, 2021)


Earlier this year France faced Australia in a three-match series and lost 2-1 overall in that tour.

The defeats were by a 2-point and a 3-point margin against the Wallabies.

It will be fascinating to see if this one is close on the scoreboard on Saturday.

A France +6 handicap is at a quote of even money* (odds recorded 17:20 GMT on November 18th, 2021).

Eight of France’s last nine internationals (W5 L4) have been settled by a margin of no greater than four points at the final whistle.

Can they pull out something special against New Zealand on Saturday?


New Zealand Preview – Will All Blacks strike back?

Facing New Zealand is never an easy task anyway, and France’s job could be made harder on the weekend.

That’s because the All Blacks suffered a 29-20 loss in Ireland last weekend.

The All Blacks were just outperformed on the day and that means they will be fired up to make amends.

That was the second loss for New Zealand inside their last five internationals having lost their final Rugby Champions match this year against South Africa.

However, looking at the bigger picture, it has been a W13 L2 record by New Zealand in their last fifteen internationals.

They can’t easily be written off.

The bookmakers are certainly not doing that as the win for New Zealand is at a quote of 4/9* (odds recorded 17:20 GMT on November 18th, 2021).

New Zealand losing back to back matches is such a rare thing but it did happen twelve months ago against Australia and then Argentina.

France vs New Zealand Betting Advice

The Kiwis are worth siding with in Paris and that will be through the NZ -6 handicap option at 10/11* (odds recorded 17:20 GMT on November 18th, 2021).

They are going to be a bit of a wounded beast after last weekend’s nightmare in Dublin.

The All Blacks were outsmarted and outperformed by Ireland, but France should offer them more space in which to play.
