France take on the visitors Australia in the group stage round 1 match of FIFA World Cup. The match will be played on Tuesday, November 23rd at Al Janoub Stadium (Al Wakrah).
France are going to break an interesting trend. Incredibly, more than once the title holder not managed to leave the group at the world championship after 4 years! And so it was with the "Le Bleu" themselves, who disgraced themselves in 2002 after the "home" triumph. However, Didier Deschamps' wards may have gone through their failure the previous summer. Then they went to the Euro as the No. 1 favorite, and as a result they flew out already in the 1/8-finals from Switzerland. Moreover, they lost a lot of chances in the course of the duel with the “neutrals”. Mbappe was especially disappointed there, that it seemed that he was going to arrange the Ballon d’Ore for himself. Well, the higher the motivation now to prove themselves. The Gallic Roosters have a great squad, from goalkeepers to strikers. And, as usual, there are enough questions about why this or that star was not taken - but the application is not tritely endless. Another question is whether the French will be able to realize their potential now.

Australia national team is unique. They represent the whole continent, located in Oceania. But in terms of football, not so long ago, they moved to Asia. And, by the way, I already managed to play there in the final of 2 regional cups, and won 1 of them, “at home” in 2015! Gradually fixed "sokkeruz" in the unspoken status of a frequenter of the World Cup. True, only the debut, with Hiddink at the head, was decorated with an exit to the playoffs. This happened in 2006 in Germany. Then, invariably, everything ended after the group stage. In Russia, 4 years ago, the Australians took a draw with the Danes, but then managed to lose to Peru and were left without the 1/8 finals. And they made their way to Qatar for a long and difficult time. In the group, the national team lost without options the competition of Japan and Saudi Arabia. Moreover, it was only 1 point ahead of Oman in the dispute for 3rd place. Further, in the playoffs, only due to Khrustich's goal in the 84th minute, the UAE was beaten (away 2-1). Well, in the intercontinental playoffs with Peru there was a goalless draw, and only in the penalty shootout did the Latin Americans fall.
France won three times against the Australians with a single draw. Including were 2-1 at the last World Cup. Bookmakers believe that France this time will be able to start confidently. Let's agree and bet on the victory of Mbappe and the company with a handicap of "-1.5 goals".
Prediction for the match: France to win with -1.5 handicap.
