France v Colombia International Friendly, 23rd March
Friendly matches get infinitely more interesting in the build-up to a World Cup. This should be a good one in Paris as two nations who are heading to Russia 2018 will duke it out. This will be a great test of France’s credentials who are going to World Cup as one of the strong contenders.

France v Colombia Betting Tips
The French have been trading strongly in World Cup 2018 outright betting and have every reason to be respected in the tournament. The depth and quality that they have in their squad is pretty enviable and they are unbeaten in their last seven games played since a defeat in Sweden during the World Cup qualifiers. France met Germany in friendly last November and played out a 2-2 draw in Cologne and they went unbeaten in six games at home during the 2017 calendar year, winning five of those. In the William Hill correct score market for this friendly, the shortest priced option is a France 1-0 at 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 08:36 p.m. on March 20th, 2018). Following what could well be a stern test against South American opposition, France will make the trip to St Petersburg to face Russia on March 27th.
The last time that France and Colombia met was a friendly back in 2008 in France, which the French won 1-0. That is just one of three previous meetings that the two nations have faced of in before and the French have won all three of them by a one-goal margin which is a nice trend to have a look at for this one.
Colombia managed to hold out in the World Cup qualifiers from the CONMEBOL zone where they finished fourth. It was a tight old scrap there between a few teams going into the final round of matches but a 1-1 draw with Peru meant that Colombia finished a place and a point ahead of the Peruvians. Colombia posted a W7 D6 L5 record through their qualifiers, scoring only the 21 goals along the way though. So they weren’t prolific and a win over China back in November in a friendly snapped a five-match winless streak of form that they were on (D3 L2), the bulk of that sequence being at the back end of the World Cup qualifiers where they started slipping out of contention. So just because this is a friendly and Colombia haven’t been totally convincing under 2.5 goals at William Hill is a decent option at 10/11 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 08:36 p.m. on March 20th, 2018).
Who will win – France v Colombia Predictions
France look the favourites here, although you never know with a friendly. They are a strong home side and have the depth to pull out a win, even if it comes later on in the second half when all the inevitable changes occur.
