France to Win with Handicap (-1)

Although France will miss a few of their top players for this game, the team they will likely field is still able to beat any national team in the world, especially a weaker team like South Africa.

With that in mind, our first prediction for this match is for France to beat South Africa by two or more goals, which shouldn't be a problem for a team that won their last six games in all competitions.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Since we expect France to win this game by two or more goals, we also expect to see at least three goals in this game overall, especially since France is playing at home.

Furthermore, France has gone over 2.5 total goals in four of their last five matches across the board, but they also averaged 4.20 goals per game in those five matches.

France vs South Africa – News, probable lineups, and latest form

Although the home team is the clear favourite, we can still see an interesting game. So, let's check both teams out in more detail:

France

The reigning champions of the world dominated their WC Qualifiers group and finished it six points ahead of Ukraine, the second-placed team. Meanwhile, France also won the UEFA Nations League by beating Belgium in the semis and Spain in the finals, so they are currently on a six-game winning streak in all competitions.

When it comes to team news, the biggest absence for France in this international window is Karim Benzema, but we will also likely see more than a few different faces compared to the game against Ivory Coast.

France predicted lineup:

Areola – Kounde, Saliba, L Hernandez – Clauss, Tchouameni, Pogba, Digne – Griezmann – Mbappe, Ben Yedder

South Africa

Unlucky, that's one word to describe South Africa's WC Qualifiers. The team finished the Qualifiers in the second stage after finishing their group behind Ghana despite having the same number of points and the same goal difference. Alas, South Africa scored one goal fewer than Ghana and that was enough to eliminated them.

When it comes to squad shape, South Africa has no notable injuries at the moment. We didn't see Percy Tau, the team's top goalscorer, in the game against Guinea, but we can expect to see him in this game, probably from the bench.

South Africa predicted lineup:

Mothwa – Mudau, Xulu, De Reuck, Mashego – Brooks, Monare – Dolly, Foster, Shandu – Makgopa
