France v Poland World Cup Betting Tips 04/12/2022
Reigning World Cup champions France were drawn against Poland in the round of 16, so enjoy our France v Poland World Cup Betting Tips 04/12/2022. France came top of Group D, despite a nervy third-match defeat against Tunisia. Poland squeezed through Group C after losing their final group match against Argentina. The two sides now meet in the upcoming knockout match and both sides have their eyes set on a quarter-final appearance. This game kicks off at 3 p.m on Sunday and will be shown live on ITV or BBC.
Form and Team News
France qualified early from Group D after opening wins against Australia (4-1) and Denmark (2-1). But Les Blues fell to a shock 1-0 loss against Tunisia in their final group game. Although, Didier Deschamps named a much-changed side for that match. Poland scraped through in Group C. A 0-0 draw with Mexico came before a 2-0 win against Saudi Arabia. Then Poland lost 2-0 to Argentina in the final game and progressed due to a better goal difference over Mexico.
Looking at the team news, France is without Karim Benzema, Christopher Nkunku, N’Golo Kante, Presnel Kimpembe and Lucas Hernandez. Poland has a clean bill of health and no suspensions.
Match Winner Betting Tips
Based on current form and group stage performances, one team is favoured in this France vs Poland match. Following a lacklustre group stage, Poland is considered an outsider for this clash. The Polish national team have a poor World Cup record in recent years, losing nine of their last 14 matches. They have also failed to beat France in their last seven meetings. Therefore, a Poland win appears unlikely and Coral is offering 12/1 odds. As Poland are unbeaten in four of their last five in all competitions, a draw could be a better option. Also, three of the last five head-to-heads between the sides have finished with a stalemate. SkyBet has the best current value for a draw at 19/4. But current world champions France will be back to full strength in this fixture. Also, Les Blues have won six of their last seven World Cup matches. As a result, a France win is our tip this weekend and SBK have the best value at 4/13.
Under 2.5 Goals Bet
Even though a France win is expected in the match against Poland, it may not be completely one-sided. France has often seen low-scoring results recently as six of their last eight have had under 2.5 goals. In addition, Poland generally keeps things tight and has seen fewer than three goals total in their last seven. They have also had under 1.5 goals in four of these matches. With a low scorer expected, we are tipping under 2.5 goals and Bet365 has the best value at evens.
Anytime Goal Scorer Bets
In the France vs Poland contest, two of the most lethal strikers in world football will face off. First, Poland’s Robert Lewandowski is always a threat and the striker got his first World Cup goal in the win over Saudi Arabia. With 19 goals for club and country this season, a Lewandowski anytime goal could be a good option. Bet365 has the best value at 9/2. But after scoring three goals in his first three World Cup matches, France’s Kylian Mbappe is our anytime pick against Poland. Mbappe also scored a brace in the 2-1 win over Denmark and we are tipping the PSG forward to net again. At 21/20, Bet365 has the best potential returns for a Mbappe anytime goal.
France comes into this round of 16 contest as the overwhelming favourites. Les Blues will hope to regroup after a shock defeat last time out as they target back-to-back World Cup tournament wins. Poland edged through the group stages and will need to be more convincing in this clash. Can Poland cause an upset, or will reigning champions France move to the quarters?
