In a weak-looking Group E, France look on course for the last 16 following a comfortable 3-0 success over Honduras and Didier Deschamps’s men are odds-on at 4/5 via Stan James to rack up another victory as they tackle neighbours Switzerland in Salvador.
The Swiss came from behind to beat Ecuador in dramatic fashion on Sunday but they’re Winner.com’s 4/1 underdogs ahead of this one and it’s hard to see them halting the progress of Les Bleus. They can however, threaten the French defence more than the Hondurans did and it would be no surprise to see both teams find the net (10/11, Stan James).
Ladbrokes’s 9/1 about a 2-1 France triumph isn’t without appeal then, in a fixture bet365 chalk up at even money to produce more than 2.5 goals and William Hill mark an enticing 4/1 against Karim Benzema adding to his weekend brace by breaking the deadlock.
Paddy Power finally, quote the Real Madrid man at 13/10 to strike at any stage.
Karim Benzema to score first – 4/1 (William Hill)
