France takes on the visitors Belarus at “Stade de France” in the matchday 10 of the Europe’s Qualifiers Group stage for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia. The game will be played in Paris on Tuesday, October 10th.
The French come up to the next qualification fight with four-clash unbeaten run, having not conceded any goal across three recent encounters which has made up 312 minutes of football already. Although Didier Deschamps’ side conducted two latest battles not very spectacularly as the match against Luxembourg was finished in 0:0 draw followed by enormously difficult 1:0 triumph over Bulgaria. With nine qualification rounds behind, France occupies the first place in Group A with 20 points earned and 16-5 goal difference and in case of a victory the side will directly promote to the Mundial’s final stage. “Les Tricolores” participated in four clashes at their own turf in which they took 10 points with 10 goals for and two goals against.

Belarus national A-team has failed to succeed since the 12th of June 2016 during five games in a row, having earned two draws and three losses during that period with all the defeats happened only in the qualification battles: 0:1 vs. Luxembourg, 4:0 vs. Sweden and 3:1 vs. Netherlands. Having scored a goal in the recent fight against the Dutch, Belarus broke its 459-minute series without scored goal. With only one matchday left till the end of the qualifying cycle, the Belarus is sitting on the fifth place in Group A with five points gained and 5-19 goal difference. The team shows mediocre results on the road: zero points taken with 1-10 goal difference in four encounters played.
The teams’ head-to-heads count for five clashes with a slight advantage of France: two triumphs in favour of the French, two draws and single victory of Belarus. The first lap game of the current qualifying campaign ended with 0:0 draw. I believe that the French won’t underestimate their opponent which means that they will win and directly promote to the final stage in Russia next year.
Prediction for the match: Belarus to win with +3.0 Asian handicap.
