France v Brazil Preview, International Friendly, Thursday 26th March 2015

France will be looking for a repeat of the 2011 result when they beat Brazil 1-0 at the Stade de France, but will be fully aware that they need to defend much better if they are to avoid a repeat of the 3-0 defeat that Brazil handed out to them on the 9th June 2013.

That Brazil victory has been the only time that Brazil have beaten France since 1992 and the hosts will no doubt head into this game with plenty of confidence having beaten Brazil four times out of the last six meetings.

However, Brazil do have a very strong squad and with the likes of Neymar leading their attack they do look likely to score goals against any defence put in front of them and it really is a coin toss to determine which of these two great sides will be victorious on Thursday night.

France Team News:

The hosts have not had to worry about Euro qualification as they are hosting next year’s finals so expect them to have a very strong squad available for this game which will likely include players like Karim Benzema, Oliver Giroud, Alexandre Lacazette and Antoine Griezmann who have all been scoring goals for fun this season with their domestic clubs. Which of these two players that will start this game is anyone’s guess, but I would imagine that Karim Benzema and Oliver Giroud will probably be the first choice by the manager.

Brazil Team News:

The visitors will also have a strong squad to choose their starting lineup from and everyone is expecting Barcelona striker Neymar to be the first name down on the team-sheet for this game. Oscar, Fernandinho, Willian and Philippe Coutinho will all hope to be included at some point during the game and the defence also looks strong with players like David Luiz, Marcelo, Thiago Silva and Gabriel Paulista all looking likely to feature.

France v Brazil Head to Head Statistics:

Thursday night’s game from the Stade de France will become the 11th meeting overall between the two countries. France have managed to record 5 victories with 2 of these having came with home advantage and Brazil have managed to record 3 victories with just 1 of those having came away from home.

If we take a closer look at the last five recent meetings we see that France have been the ones enjoying the best results having won 3 times compared to Brazil having won just the once and the remaining game finishing all square at 0-0.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

24 Goals have been scored in the previous ten matches played between the two countries over the years and this provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 2.40.

8 of those Goals have came in the previous four meetings played between the two countries where France have been the host nation and this generates us an average goal scoring statistic for this match of just 1.60 and would suggest that we are only likely to see one or two goals scored on Thursday night.

France v Brazil Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

This really is a very exciting game happening on Thursday night which can be seen Live on ITV4 High Definition with an 8pm Kick Off Time.

As for choosing the winner, well that is going to be very difficult indeed as not only do both teams have an abundance of world class players available in their squad, both head into this game in very good form and unbeaten in their last six matches played.

France do boast a very good record against Brazil though in recent years having won four times from the last six meetings between the two countries and with home advantage they obviously have a big chance of winning this game and no real surprise to see the online bookmakers having them as the clear favourites to do so.

However, I just think Brazil have a bit more to offer at their current odds available and with the likes of Neymar, Oscar, David Luiz, Marcelo and Thiago Silva they just edge it for me on experience and strength and as such my Banker prediction for this game is going to be for the visitors to win.

My Saver is going to be for both Teams to Score and the match end up all square as I can definitely see both teams happy to take a 1-1 or a 0-0 away from this one, especially if the game is tied with twenty or so minutes to play.
