France – Australia Free Betting Tips Free Betting Tips
The reigning world champions made it through by finishing 1st in Group D ahead of Ukraine and Finland. France did not lose a single match, scoring 18 goals and conceding only 3, with Antoine Griezmann as top scorer with 6 goals.
They then competed in the Nations League losing the option of reediting the title, finishing 3rd in group 1 behind Croatia and Denmark, with whom they will also meet in the World Cup group.
While the French national team is a repertoire of top players, Qatar is expected to be the World Cup in which Mbappé will claim his place as a star.
Didier Deschamps will not be able to count on Benzema for this match and Raphael Varane remains in doubt. France’s first eleven in the World Cup could be with Lloris; Pavard, Upamecano, Konaté, Lucas Hernández; Tchouaméni, Rabiot; Dembélé, Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappé and Giroud.
The “socceroos” suffered to qualify like no other team. They tediously won their group in the 2nd round, then played in the play-offs after finishing in the 3rd round behind Saudi Arabia and Japan. In that play-off they beat UAE 1-2 with goals from Irvine and Hrustic, which allowed them to face Peru in the decisive match, which after a goalless time had to be settled in a penalty shootout.
While there are several interesting players in this team such as Milos Degenek, Craig Goodwin, Jamie Maclaren or Mitchell Duke, the star of this team will be under the sticks. Matthew Ryan is the leader of the team and against France he will certainly have his work cut out for him.
Graham Arnold could form Australia’s first eleven in the World Cup with Matthew Ryan; Atkinson, Milos Degenek, Soutarr, Behich; Mooy, Irvine, Hrustic; Boyle, Mitchell Dukey Leckie.
