On Tuesday evening, Julen Lopetegui's Spain will face Didier Deschamps’ France in Saint Denis for an International friendly, with both teams looking to shake off Euro 2016 heartbreak.
Both teams are on their way to qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia and both nations are undefeated since Euro 2016. The teams have very similar record; France are unbeaten at home in nine matches and Spain are unbeaten away in nine matches.
It is worthy to note that each of the last six ties between these two teams ended with less than three goals scored. France won in the last friendly between the two sides in September 2014, with Loic Remy scoring the only goal of the game. Spain have a small edge in recent encounters, winning three out of their last five meetings.
After thrashing Israel 4-1 at the weekend - with goals from David Silva, Vitolo, Diego Costa, and Isco, Spain head into the France game in good spirits, hoping that they can win their second game in the space of three days. La Furia Roja are unbeaten in seven games since former FC Porto boss Lopetegui replaced Vicente Del Bosque, with four wins and a draw in five qualifiers.
France allowed no surprises in weekend’s encounter with minnows Luxembourg, recording a 3-1 win, thanks to a brace from Arsenal man Olivier Giroud and another goal from Antoine Griezmann, with Monaco wonderkid Kylian Mbappe playing his international debut in the game.
None of the previous six meetings between the two sides offered three or more goals, and Under 2.5 goals is being offered by SportyBet at (1.57), which could be worth going for. With the array of attacking talents in these two teams, goals are very likely and both teams to score can also be backed at (1.80), still with the same betting firm. First half can be backed to be the highest scoring half in this tie at (3.20), while more goals can be backed in the second half at (2.08) with SportyBet.
