The RUS vs FRA Clash –

After losing their first international friendly match both Russia and France would try to outsmart each other in this game and register a victory in this game. Russia had little chance in their first match because they were facing Brazil, five times World Cup champions but in this game they would be more confident because they would be taking on France. After losing to Colombia in the previous game, France would try to cover up their weak spots because Russia would use the same tactics followed by the Colombians. However, France is expected to win this game because unlike their opponents, they have a star team and one of the favourites to win this summer World Cup.

Russia vs France full squad, team news, playing XI and match preview are listed here.

Gambling India Info Match predictions –

Our bet is on the France for this game because they are one of the favourites to win the World Cup but they couldn’t get it right in the first International friendly so they would try to live up to their fans expectations in this game by defeating the host nation of the World Cup. However, Russia despite having some a few popular names on the team they lack some talent in some parts of the ground that is their biggest drawback as of now.
