France vs Poland Betting Tips

Any forecasters making their France vs Poland betting tips, will suggest that this is very close to being a WC 2022 sure bet. That reflects the French team's prominent ability and the lacklustre performances the Poles served up so far. However, in knock-out football, anything can happen and here we preview the match and make a couple of predictions, together with some suggestions for alternative betting markets. The latest odds for France vs Poland see the French as favourites available at just 1.30 with Bet365 and Pinnacle.

1. France vs Poland Preview

Which team was going to be France's “Last 16” opponents was in the balance right up to the last few minutes of the final round of group games, as Mexico pressed hard for a crucial third goal against Saudi Arabia, which would have taken them through. Still, it wasn't to be and Poland, despite barely “throwing a punch” at Argentina, made it and now finds themselves with a huge task of somehow getting past the current champions.

My players are not tired. They just put a lot of energy into the first two matches. We have a last-16 tie coming up and we also need to take into account that games are now lasting 105 minutes. I was not neglecting this game but the focus was on Sunday. - Didier Deschamps after the surprising loss to Tunisia, Reuters

The French comfortably qualified as winners of Group D, although a final match defeat to Tunisia wasn't the ideal preparation for the knock-out stages, it should be noted that they rested many of their senior players for that contest. The Poles surely will be more fired up but will have to find a way of improving their supply to star striker Robert Lewandowski, otherwise, this looks to be a WC 2022 sure bet in the favour of France, even though goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has been one of the stands out performers of the tournament so far.

The game will take place at the Al Thumama Stadium, where neither side has played previously, just 8 miles outside the centre of Doha, with a 6 pm kick-off local time, on Sunday 4 December. These teams have met 16 times, and the French have not lost against this opponent for 40 years. Goals in this fixture have been at a premium recently though, with only four scored in the last five meetings, so maybe a France vs Poland best prediction has to be for a narrow French victory.

1.1 France vs Poland Head-to-head Record

Out of the 16 mentioned matches against France, Poland won only three. However, their most valuable victory was in the only encounter both teams have had in the World Cup. In 1982, the Polish team won 3-2 in the third-place game, winning their second WC medal in history. However, since then, Poland has managed to pick only one win with four draws and three losses.

1.2 France vs Poland Predicted Lineups

After an embarrassing loss to Tunisia, France should go back to its strongest lineup. The only question mark we see is in the right-back where we could see either Kounde or Pavard, depending on the approach Deschamps chooses. In the midfield, Tchoumeni and Rabiot will again be the key pieces, while Mbappe, Griezmann, and Dembele will be providing Giroud up front.

France: Lloris - Kounde, Upamecano, Varane, T. Hernandez - Tchoumeni, Rabiot - Mbappe, Griezmann, Dembele - Giroud

Poland: Szczesny - Cash, Kiwior, Glik, Bereszynski - Krychowiak, Bielik - Frankowski, Zielinski, Kaminski - Lewandowski

It's hard to predict what Michniewicz will invent for the game against France. In the most defensive scenario, he could go with three centre-backs or three midfielders. However, we should see most of the players who have gathered the majority of minutes during this year's tournament. If Poland wants to surprise France, they need to provide solid defence and supply Lewandowski with help up front - something they were unable to do against Argentina.

2. France vs Poland Betting Odds

The French are massive favourites to win this contest with the early France vs Poland winner odds showing as a miserly 1.30, with Poland out at a massive 13.00 and it is 5.00 for the draw. Of course, tournament football can throw up many surprises so nothing should be taken for granted. It's a similar case to our preview for England vs Senegal with the latest tips and odds as we at JohnnyBet agree in the related article that in the Round of 16, everything can happen.

Coming back to France vs England, in the other markets, it is possible to get attractive France vs Poland odds of over 40.00 in favour of the Poles winning in extra time, or nearly 20.00 for them to win on penalties. A 3-1 victory for the French looks good at tempting odds of over 10.00, whilst a narrow 1-0 success for Poland sees a massive price on offer. For something slightly different, why not look at super striker Kylian Mbappe netting himself a hat-trick at over 20.00? He is undoubtedly performing like a player capable of such an achievement.

3. France vs Poland Prediction

Under any normal circumstances, making a France vs Poland betting prediction would not take much consideration; the French won the competition four years ago and have a side bursting with quality, whilst the Poles have found themselves into the last sixteen, without really showing any sort of form. However, the circumstances are unique and there looks like there could be shocks around every corner in this tournament.

In Lewandowski, Poland possesses a truly world-class forward, who if given some decent service, will trouble any defence. Therefore, although the obvious France vs Poland prediction is for a French victory, it is hard to believe that having got this far, the Poles won't release the shackles they appear to have been playing in, and have a proper go at their much-fancied opponents.

The longer the match stays goalless, the more nervous the French are likely to become, so for Poland, it will come down to which approach they take. Do they try to stay in the game and gradually work an opening or two, or go for it from the off and try and catch France cold? Most punters making France vs Poland predictions will automatically be pulled towards the French, but there is a genuine suspicion that this one could go to penalties, and then it is just a lottery with two high-class goalkeepers at either end.
