Soccer Predictions and analysis of the match: France vs. Italy
France welcomes Italy in the most interesting friendly game today. The duel is from 20:00 on our time at the Allianz Riviera stadium in Nice.
France is one of the great favorites of the Mondiale 2018 and in this game will aim to prove its class against a strong opponent. On Monday, Didier Dessan’s alumni scored a 2-0 victory over the Republic of Ireland in their first check before the start of the World Cup 2018 finals. Olivier Giru and Nabil Fekir made a single hit to bring the blues to success. Didier Deschamps started the match with Girush and Babe in front, while Nabil Fekir was behind them. France has shown many interesting things in an assault, but we still have to see what the “cocks” are capable of.
The new era in the Italian national team led by Roberto Mancini started successfully after the Squadra beat Saudi Arabia 2-1 on Monday. This was the first Mancini game to head the team. The meeting was marked by the arrival of Mario Balotelli, who returned to the national team. His name among top scorers and Torino’s striker Andrea Belotti. Otherwise, Italy acted with three strikers in the face of Inssierie, Balotelli and Politano. The team performed quite solidly in the midfield, with Georgino, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Alessandro Florentzi starting as holders.
News around the clubs:
French coach Didier Deschamps is expected to play in a very different composition than the Aire match. It is quite likely that we will see a large portion of the royal stacks for the World Cup 2018. It is expected that Ugo Lorenz will replace Mandanda, while Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann and Usman Dembele will be holders. The three of them remained in the match with Aire, playing in the second half. Florian Thoen and Toma Lehmar did not take part in the first control, so they will almost certainly be on the pitch against Italy.
In the composition of Italy most likely there will be at least three or four changes. It is possible for Mario Balotelli to keep his place at the top of the attack after making a good match against the Saudis. Almost surely on one wing we will see Domenico Berardi, who did not play in the match on Monday. At the door, there may also be a change as Dona Rama has given way to a queue for Buffon’s successor, Mattia Perrin. Chance to play will also be played by players like Simone Dzazza, D’Ambrosio and Daniele Rugani.
France won three of its last five friendly matches
Italy has only one success in its previous five games

France – Italy: Soccer Prediction
France will aim to win this home game a few days before the team leaves for Russia. Didier Deschamps left many of the team’s top players in control of Eire on Monday. Now we expect the cocks to start with Antoine Grizzman and Paul Pogba in the starting lineup, which will give them a big advantage and they will probably win the game.
