Competition: World Cup qualifier
Market: France win
Odds: 1/2 @ 888sport
Looking to make it back-to-back qualifying wins in midweek, world champions France will make the trip out to Bosnia on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Bosnia-Herzegovina might have managed to open their World Cup qualifying campaign with a late 2-2 draw away at Finland, it doesn’t cover what has been an extended rut. Enduring what was a nightmare run during last year’s Nations League campaign and signing off their horror show with a 2-0 defeat against Italy on home soil, Ivaylo Petev’s side came freefalling out of League A and will face another hugely overwhelming test in Sarajevo. It should also be highlighted that Bosnia are without a win in any of their last 10 straight contests, a run that stems all the way back to November 2019. Wednesday’s hosts also put in another toothless display over the weekend. Only managing to play out a 0-0 stalemate against Costa Rice in a friendly showdown, Bosnia have also failed to win any of their last six contests on home soil.
As for the visitors, while France might have been disappointed to have also opened their World Cup qualifying campaign with a 1-1 draw against Ukraine, the defending world champions are still tipped as a landslide pick in Group D. Managing to pick up their first victory and landing what was a routine 2-0 win away at Kazakhstan over the weekend, The Blues also secured their spot in the semi-final of the Nations League. With a showdown against Belgium scheduled for later in the year, Didier Deschamps’ side are unbeaten in each of their last 15 competitive matchups, a run that stems back to June 2019. Smelling a real chance on foreign soil this week and landing wins in both of their previous trips out to Bosnia, we’re backing a similar away victory for France on Wednesday night.
Bet: France 1/2 to beat Bosnia-Herzegovina in Wednesday’s World Cup qualifier @ 888sport
