France vs. Turkey Predictions and Preview
This looks set to be one of the most watchable ties of the international break with the in-form world champions France playing host to Turkey, who have enjoyed a great qualification campaign to date.
Both have won six of their seven qualifiers and both are extremely well placed to secure their place in the finals next summer.
France’s only defeat of the campaign came in a 2-0 loss at Turkey while their opponents here only suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat in Iceland to spoil their perfect record.
The hosts are favourites for this encounter at odds of 4/11 with a Turkey victory priced at 15/2 and the draw available at 15/4.
Between them, these two sides have conceded just six goals in their 14 qualification matches to date so under 2.5 goals at 6/5 appears to be a solid bet with under 1.5 at 18/5.
A ‘double chance’ on Turkey to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 2/1 while a France win/draw outcome is at 1/14.
If you fancy the home side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 21/20.
One to watch for France: Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman has three goals in his last three internationals and is a constant threat. Is priced at 13/5 to find the net in this game.
One to watch for Turkey: Everton striker Cenk Tosun has netted 16 international goals including five in six appearances this year, and is at a tempting 4/1 to net here.
Long shot: Turkey have conceded just two goals in their seven matches to date – keeping six clean sheets in the process – while France have conceded just four times in that timeframe. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 14/1.
