France – Wales: the pre-match in figures – News

Stats, odds, scorers: here’s everything you need to know ahead of tonight’s friendly match.


What are friendships for? Often to nothing. Sometimes hurting important players before a big tournament. But in the case of the France team, this first friendly against Wales has an interest: working the offensive animation of the team since the arrival of Karim Benzema. His first match since October 8, 2015 against Armenia! With the Madrilenian in the eleven, Deschamps must adapt. He worked a 4-4-2 diamond in training, with Griezmann behind the duo Benzema – Mbappé. If France has lost only one of its last 18 matches (14 wins, 3 draws), against Finland in a friendly (0-2), we will therefore remain cautious and we will click moderately on the victory @ 1.27 .

The semi-finalist of the 2016 edition has lost only one of his last 8 matches (5 wins, 2 draws) on March 24 in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in Belgium (1-3). The friendly Michel Berger fans have won only one match in its history: a friendly at the Toulouse Stadium in 1982. Since then, there have been three defeats and one draw. Gareth Bale knows his team is rebuilding. “We know it’s a different tournament, with different teams, and we also have a very different squad than we had.” The Real winger is obviously the Welsh attacking leader, and hopes to see himself affirm the Mancunien Daniel James, scorer against the Czech Republic. What to hang a draw @ 5.5?
