In their final preparation for the Euros, I’m going with full stake on this match. World champions France hosts out of sorts Bulgaria at Stade de France tonight. Hosts have beaten Wales on 2nd of June whilst Bulgaria played both in 1st and 5th of June, fatigue could be kicking in for visitors.
France are opening their Euros against Germany one full week from now on. Even though this team doesn’t need it, a win here could boost their confidence even more and some players will be looking sustain their rhythm.
Since Les Bleus is placed in group of death with Germany, Portugal and Hungary, Deschamps will be looking to test all his attacking players and everyone who plays will have quality to damage Bulgaria.
We all know about France’s roaster, probably the best in the world. With the likes of Griezmann, Mbappe, Benzema, Giroud, Coman, Dembele and Ben Yedder it is very likely to see, at least 2 of them, scoring. Deschamps used all his 6 subs against Wales and France could have scored more than 3 goals in that game as Benzema missed penalty in the 1st half.
Bulgaria is going through rough patch. Their road game has been dreadful as they’re winless in last 2 and a half years. After ending their Euro 2020 qualfication period in failure, there’s a lot of work to get this nation competitive again.
Visitors will not be the eastest team in Europe to break down, but with their toothless attackt, I write off any surprises in this match. With a nearly ful week’s worth of rest in between matches, France should use extra days off to secure big win today.
With Champions League-winning crop returning, they’ll be even stronger this time. France is probably going to win both halves, but I’m going safer here with full stake. Even if hosts start off slowly and in lower gear, I’m confident in both outcomes as I really don’t trust visitors.
