There is an international friendly between two heavyweights of world football as France host Spain on Tuesday night. Will the quality of players on show mean this is no ordinary friendly? We take you through our match preview and betting predictions for the clash at the Stade de France.

France v Spain


France v Spain Past Meetings

Spain have won four of the last six meetings between the two countries, although their most recent clash – also in Paris, back in November 2014 – finished 1-0 to Les Bleus, with Loic Remy netting the only goal.

The last competitive meeting came in qualification for the 2014 World Cup where a Pedro goal was enough to win a tight contest in the French capital after the two had played out a 1-1 draw in Spain.

La Roja also defeated France 2-0 at the 2012 European Championships, with the French’s last competitive win in the fixture a 3-1 triumph at the 2006 World Cup.


France v Spain Stats

Both these sides are unbeaten in six outings since their respective exits from the European Championships last summer. In fact, both have identical records – 10 points from 4 group games for World Cup qualification – and a win and a draw from two friendlies.

Spain’s most notable victory came over Belgium in a friendly although they have laboured to draws against England and Italy, while France have picked up notable victories over Italy, Sweden, the Netherlands and Bulgaria along with disappointing draws with Bulgaria and the Ivory Coast.

Each side has also only conceded three times across those runs.


France v Spain Team News

The 23-man French squad includes 14 players with six caps or less – including five from Monaco and four Paris Saint-Germain stars. Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Alexandre Lacazette and Raphael Varane are among the players not in the squad.

Asier Illarramendi (first call-up) and Gerard Deulofeu (first since 2014) have been included in the Spain squad, alongside the returning Pedro and Diego Costa, with Nacho Monreal preferred to Marcos Alonso. Atletico Madrid pair Juanfran Torres and Saul Niguez alongside Juan Mata, Cesc Fabregas, Sergi Roberto and Lucas Vazquez don’t make the squad.


Reason for France v Spain bets

Neither side will be fussed about winning this match, as is often the case in friendly matches, with experimentation and giving players a taste for international football the main aims for this encounter.

As such, a draw is the most predictable outcome for this match as while neither side will lose any sleep over not winning the game, they will both look to keep their six-game unbeaten run going and maintain momentum going into the next set of qualification matches.

These games are often disrupted heavily by changes and substitutions, hence the predicted goals drastically reduce as the encounters lose any flow and rhythm.

The last six meetings between the pair have produced only nine goals and none of those have had more than two goals in a game – so under 2.5 goals for this one is a logically sound bet and is undervalued by odds of 7/10.
