Despite carding two wins from two, France aren’t quite mathematically through but realistically they have little to worry about; it would take a couple of freak results to deny them a place in the knockout stage.
Les Bleus are 20/23 at BetVictor to maintain their hundred percent record while opponents Ecuador are 10/3 courtesy of Stan James but it’s the stalemate at 11/4 with Skybet that looks the best bet in Rio, especially as that would be enough for Didier Deschamps’s side to advance.
A stalemate won’t help Ecuador if the Swiss get the win they’re expected to against Honduras but the South Americans are coming up against one of the strongest attacks in the competition and that will make it difficult for them to progress.
It’s 4/5 courtesy of Ladbrokes for both teams to get on the scoresheet in Rio, where a score draw is 17/4 at the same firm.
More ambitious punters meanwhile can take BetVictor’s 17/1 about a 2-2 scoreline.
Score draw – 17/4 (Ladbrokes)
