France vs Peru odds

France vs Peru betting preview

As a team with aspirations of contending in the latter stages of the World Cup, France will know this is a game they can ill afford to slip up in as they look to assert themselves as the dominant side in Group C. Facing Australia and Peru in their first two games, Didier Deschamps will be expecting six points from six early on and to settle into the tournament in style.

For Antoine Griezmann, this fixture will also be the chance for him to build some confidence early on in the tournament after he made a slow start to Euro 2016, before then winning the Golden Boot later on. This French side boast one of the most formidable squads in international football, with many still being in the preliminary stages of their career.

Peru meanwhile will be hoping to cause a major upset in this fixture, with this being their first appearance at a World Cup finals since 1982 - the same year they also last faced France at international level. On that occasion, Peru came out on top against Michel Platini’s French side and they will hope that can serve as a positive omen ahead of this huge game for them.

Realistically, Peru will know their fixtures against Denmark and Australia in their first and third group fixtures respectively will be where their fate is decided, though a point or three in this game would go some way to boosting their chances of progressing. Veteran forwards Paolo Guerrero and Jefferson Farfan will be their main threats going forward, with the experienced pair having a combined 56 goals between them at international level.
