England vs France

  • 2 - 0
  • Played


England and France face at Wembley Stadium, in a friendly match. This is the 4th friendly match of the year for England, after friendly matches against Spain, Republic of Ireland and Italy. As for France, this is the 10th friendly match of the year, after previous friendly matches against Germany, Denmark, Armenia, Serbia, Portugal, Albania, Belgium and Brazil. The only recent head‑to‑head between these two teams was played on 11‑06‑2012, and ended in a draw by (1‑1).

Analysis of England

This is the 4th friendly match of the year for the home team, after having registered the following final scores in the previous friendlies: Spain (2‑0) England, Republic of Ireland (0‑0) England and Italy (1‑1) England. In the last 10 home matches England has won 8, tied 1 and lost 1. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 4 times, but have turned the score around in 2. In the last 11 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 8 of their 22 goals between minutes (61'‑75').

As in the previous friendly match, we foresee that England enters into the field using a tactical 4-3-3 system, in order to take advantage of the two players that operate near the lines: Lallana and Sterling. Is predictable that the most creative midfielder is the young Barkley and that the most offensive reference is the irreverent centre foward of Tottenham, Kane.

Confirmed Lineup: J. Hart, J. Stones, G. Cahill, K. Gibbs, N. Clyne, D. Alli, R. Barkley, E. Dier, R. Sterling, W. Rooney, H. Kane.
Coach: R. Hodgson.

Analysis of France

The away team plays its 10th friendly match of the year. In the previous friendly matches they registered the following final scores: France (2‑0) Germany, Denmark (1‑2) France, France (4‑0) Armenia, France (2‑1) Serbia, Portugal (0‑1) France, Albania (1‑0) France, France (3‑4) Belgium, France (2‑0) Denmark and France (1‑3) Brazil. In the last 7 away matches France has won 4, tied 2 and lost 1. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 9 matches for this competition. This is a team that likes to score first. They have opened up the score in 7 of the last 9 matches for the Friendlies, they have reached half‑time in front in 5 of those 7 matches and have held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in 6 of them.

France has a squad with great quality in all sectors. Therefore, we foresee that the French choose to do a 4-3-3 tactical, giving preference to a faster play style, in constant offensive transitions. The Arsenal's centre foward, Giroud, will be them most offensive reference, because he provides your team the ability to create danger through the air.

Confirmed Lineup: H. Lloris, R. Varane, L. Digne, B. Sagna, L. Koscielny, H. Ben Arfa, M. Schneiderlin, B. Matuidi, Y. Cabaye, A. Gignac, A. Martial.
Coach: D. Deschamps.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this clash will be both teams score at least one goal. We foresee a balanced match and with opportunities in both areas. Thus, it's predictable that the direct confrontation is confirmed and the score chances arise in large number.
