Today's Daily World Cup Qualification Mozzart Predictions and Tips To Win

France, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following a 4-2 Nations League triumph versus Sweden.

In that match, France had 52% possession and 16 shots at goal with 8 on target. For France, the goalscorers were Olivier Giroud (16', 59'), Benjamin Pavard (36') and Kingsley Coman (94'). Sweden got 6 shots at goal with 2 on target. Viktor Claesson (4') and Robin Quaison (88') scored for Sweden.

Fixtures featuring France have often been lively affairs lately with high scoring being a common characteristic. Over their past 6 clashes alone, a grand total of 20 goals have been scored for both sides combined (at an average of 3.33 goals per game) with 14 of these belonging to Les Bleus.

Since being defeated in their last game at the hands of Switzerland in Nations League competition, Ukraine and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.

The strike force from Ukraine have struggled for goals over their previous 6 clashes, recording the disappointing return of just 4. In those matches, Zhovto-Blakytni have also seen the collective goal tally of their opponents equal 17. However, it remains to be seen if such a trend might persist in this match.

Head to head

Checking on their prior head to head meetings dating back to 21/11/2007 shows us that France have won 4 of these games & Ukraine 1, with the tally of drawn games being 1.

Loads of goals were seen in those games, too - 24 in total at an average of 4 goals per match.

France boss Didier Deschamps will be happy not to have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this match thanks to a fully healthy squad to pick from.

Team News: Ukraine

Due to a fully healthy group available for selection, Ukraine manager Andriy Shevchenko has zero fitness concerns at all ahead of this match.
