Welcome to our France vs Ukraine betting tips, prediction and odds analysis Group D European World Cup qualifier at the Stade de France on Wednesday night.
Both sides will fancy their chances of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup and in the case of reigning World Champions France, they will be expected to qualify for the showpiece as a matter of formality. Les Bleus will be eyeing nothing less than a win from this game whilst anything other than a defeat will be impressive for Ukraine, especially when considering that they will be playing away against the mighty France.
Head To Head Stats
The teams last met in a friendly international in October 2020 and France won 7-1.
France have won their last two consecutive games against Ukraine.
The last time that Ukraine beat France was in a 2-0 home win in November 2013.

France have won their last two games (a win over Sweden and a 1-0 Nations League win over Portugal last November).
The last time that France lost was in a shock 2-0 home defeat to Finland last November.

Ukraine enter their game against the reigning world champions in poor form. Many of their players will also have fresh memories of their thrashing at the hands of the French late last year. I expect one way traffic in this game with France easily outplaying Ukraine. I expect a convincing 3-0 win for France.
Anytime goal scorers
France-Kylian Mbappe. The youngster scored against Ukraine late last year and will be hungry to score yet again early in the game. He will be a menace to the Ukraine defence due to his slick movement and football intelligence.
Ukraine- Roman Yaremchuk- With six international goals to his name from 19 appearances, Yaremchuk will be expected to lead the line for the Ukrainians against France. If the French defensive line is caught napping, the Gent striker may punish them. If Ukraine are to score in the game, there is a good chance that it will come via the 25-year-old.
Our Odds And Tips In Detail
France will know that they will be heavy favourites to win the game and will play an open game, knowing that they have superior quality over their opponents. Ukraine may sit back, knowing that a draw for them will actually be a good result. However, Les Bleus will likely overpower Ukraine and I expect them to comfortably win the game 3-0.
