France look like worthy favourites in a weak-looking Group E and they can start as they mean to go on by seeing off a robust but limited Honduras outift in Porto Alegre.
Didier Deschamps’ side come into the tournament in fine goalscoring form and are rightly installed as Coral’s 4/11 favourites to overhaul the Central American outfit (12/1, bet365) who held England in the pair’s recent friendly.
Even without the injured Franck Ribéry, players such as Olivier Giroud, Loic Remy and Karim Benzema provide Les Bleus with plenty of firepower and betway make them just 7/20 to notch first.
Such margins aren’t too common in opening World Cup group matches but France should be too strong for their opponents and Coral’s 16/1 for France to win 3-1 certainly tempts.
