Betting prediction was written by Dan Adair


2012 Form:
Spain         P14 W12 D2 L0 GF37 GA3 GD+34      - Average goals per game: 2.86
France       P12 W7 D2 L3  GF18 GA10 GD+8       - Average goals per game: 2.33


Spain have carried on were they left off after winning Euro 2012 with four straight victories. They have ditched the false nine that won them Euro 2012 in favour of the Barcelona style 4-3-3. The players are mainly Barce anyway so there has been no problem adapting at all. So far Spain have only played two group games but both have been carbon copy matches. Totally dominating the games with over 67% possession in each match. Both games against Belarus and Georgia were routine affairs and a 4-0 and 1-0 win were as expected. They are hardly tested defensively as opposing teams have so little of the ball they are unable to mount attacks. The game is perfect and is pretty much impossible to play against. Defenders Gerard Pique and Carlos Puyol are out with injury.
France opened up their World Cup 2014 qualification run with an impressive and controlled win away at Finland.  France started without several banned players after the fallout from Euro 2012. With a new selection and system, Abou Diaby was the standout player and the Arsenal midfielder gave a dynamic all round display. They followed up with a strong win against an improving Belarus side at Stade Francais. With another fledgling side France strarted slowly in this match but came to life in the second half. With only Evra, Benzema and Ribery on show of the usual suspects and a whole host of fresh names Didier Deschamps has promised to start with a clean slate and to try and eradicate the divides within the team. The last game can be ignored as the players were obviously distracted with thoughts of this game. Japan took the game with a late goal to secure a 1-0 win at Stade Francais but it was a nothing display from an unmotivated French side. France will have Abou Diaby and Rio Mavuba out due to injuries.


1.47 Spain (Betfair)is the selection in this game. Spain are simply unbeatable at the moment and even though the law of averages states they will lose sometime I cannot see it here even against the might of France. Spain have the system off to a tee and any team with such an abundace of riches here cannot be ignored. With players such as Santi Cazorla, David Silva, Fernando Torres and Juan Mata fighting for a place on the bench! The possesion will be dominated by Spain and France will spend most of the game chasing shadows. Spain will wear down France and a win is to be expected here. The odds are dropping quickly on Spain and you should get on quick as the money piles on.

Spain is the pick here -1 at  1.78 (Pinnacle) France will have little chance of taking anything from this game but I do not expect them to be beaten out of sight. They will be unable to do much attack wise but they will defend and for long periods they will have to defend in a backs to the wall style. Money back here if Spain win by 1 and this is an added bonus.

Under 2.50 1.85 (Betfair) is the bet here.It might seem a bit of a gamble going under with Spain but these games are usually so one sided that to cover these handicaps Spain have to do all the scoring themselves. Spain could do this but I dont believe they will manage against a resolute French side. France have four of the last five games under 2.5 goals, but Spain have gone over 4 times in the last five. (The class of opposition are nowhere near the level of France however)
