Ireland vs France Preview
European Championships Qualifying, Monday, March 27th, 19:45 (UK)
France opened their qualifying campaign with an emphatic 4-0 win over the Netherlands in midweek. Griezmann and Upamecano scored quickfire goals inside the opening 10 minutes which was then followed up by a brace from the new national team captain, Kylian Mbappe.
Ireland played two days before the French, they hosted Latvia in a friendly in Dublin. Stephen Kenny’s men won 3-2 in a clash dominated by the hosts with Evan Ferguson getting himself on the scoresheet. The Brighton teenager will be the star man for his nation for years to come.
The gulf in class is huge between these sides. France have one of the greatest squads in world football. Kylian Mbappe is arguably the best player on the planet at the time of writing and will be expected to step up even more given that he’s now wearing the armband.
Bookmakers have Ireland as big outsiders here as you’d expect, best priced at 9.5. France are as big as 1.42 to earn maximum points whilst the draw is available at 4.75. You’d be brave to back against Deschamps’ men given the quality and depth of the squad.

Ireland vs France Bet Builder
Kylian Mbappe is a terrific player and is enjoying another impressive scoring season for club and country.
Mbappe has bagged 19 times in 24 appearances in Ligue 1, seven goals in eight games in the Champions League and eight in seven in Qatar. With the way he’s been performing, you just can’t rule him out from getting on the scoresheet.
He’s best priced at 1.90 to score on Monday night which looks like a great bet and I’m confident he’ll get a handful of chances against an uninspiring Irish defence.
Combining a France win with an Mbappe goal seems the obvious play here, coming in at a strong price of 2.20. Ireland will look to sit tight and defend deep with numbers leaving as little space in behind as possible but ultimately the quality should show over the course of 90 minutes.
Another France victory will put them in command of Group B, the prices look more than fair heading into this clash. If Mbappe turns up at his best then it could be a long night for the home side.
