Mouth watering international friendly this evening.
These two were piled together during the 2014 World Cup qualifiers, with Spain coming out on top over the two duels. But then France had the last laugh when the Spaniards crashed out of the group stage of Brazil 2014 as reigning champions. Spain will probably have one eye on their Euro 2016 qualifying opener, whereas France will be taking this a bit more seriously. They are the hosts of Euro 2016 and so need to take all games in between with a degree of competitiveness as they are going to miss out on competitive matches.
France haven’t won any of the last five matches against Spain, taking a loss and a draw in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers. However, they were the better looking of the two sides at the World Cup, but they have been dealt a blow with ARsenal’s Olivier Giroud being out. However, they have coverage in Karim Benzema and Loic Remy, and that is the nice thing about the French set up right now, they have a very versatile, talented, creative, quick and solid squad.
Who knows what shape Vicente del Bosque’s Spain are going to be in. This is where they should be looking to the future in the likes of Koke and Isco. They were deflated after their early exit from Brazil 2014 and it is going to take some time to build up a formidable side again. They only take three strikers into the match, one of them being the uncapped Paco Alcacer, while Diego Costa didn’t prove himself at International level during the World Cup. This could be a fantastic chance for France to snap their winless streak, and big value on them at 6/4 to take the win on home turf.
