France welcomes Albania at the Stade de France in a game from the European qualifying campaign
The world champion France welcomes Albania at the Stade de France in a game from the European qualifying campaign. We are going to discuss this fixture in our football prediction tips for today. Shall we begin?
Despite of the loss they conceded against Turkey in Istanbul, France are currently topping Group H with 9 points won. Turkey and Iceland have the same amount of points won so far, so clearly this group is very interesting.
After the tough visit to Turkey France had an easy game against Andorra away from home, which Les Bleus won with four goals scored. The manager Didier Deschamps made changes of his usual line-up, giving a shot to players like Kurt Zouma, Clement Lenglet, Leo Dubois, Ferland Mendy, Florian Thauvin and Wissam Ben Yedder.
One of Les Bleus’ superstars Kylian Mbappe opened the score for the visitors, while until the end of the game Ben Yedder, Thauvin and Zouma also scored. This match was a good opportunity for Deschamps to do some experiments with his team.
Meanwhile Albania are fourth in the group with 6 points won so far from four games played. On theory Albania still ahve chance to qualify for the Euro, but in reality it’s going to be really hard for them to do it.
In their previous game in this group Albania hosted Moldova and achieved a 2-0 win. Sokol Cikalleshi and Ylber Ramadani scored for the hosts after the halftime break.
In our football prediction tips for today we expect a comfortable win for France against Albania in Paris. How we said, the first three teams in this group are having the same amount of points at the moment, so the world champions can’t allow themselves to underrestimate any game until the end. Albania are not a bad side, but for them it’s going to very difficult to avoid losing this one.
