World Cup – France vs Peru Betting Tip

  • When: 4:00PM, Thursday, June 21st, 2018
  • Where: Central Stadium, Yekaterinburg, Russia

Preview

Group C continues on Thursday afternoon as leaders France take on bottom side Peru in Yekaterinburg. This is a big game for both of these sides, with France fans looking for a better performance after their underwhelming win against Australia and with Peru needing to get something out of the game after losing to Denmark in their first match. France can seal their progress to the next round with a win if Denmark beat Australia earlier in the day, and Didier Deschamps would dearly love to wrap things up after two matches.

France

Big things were expected of France heading into this tournament, but their opening game against Australia presented more questions than answers. There are many people who believe that Deschamps is not the right man for the job and even after six years in charge, France still don’t really play with much of a style or a game plan. Deschamps is desperate to play his big stars, but there have to be questions as to whether Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba, Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele can all play in the same side.

Peru

Peru will have been very disappointed to have lost their opening game against Denmark, especially when you consider that they had the chance to take the lead from the penalty spot in the first half. Christian Cueva missed that spot kick before Yussuf Poulsen scored a second half winner for the Danes. In truth, Peru played quite well in the game and were unlucky to lose, but it now means that if Denmark beat Australia in the early game in Group C, Peru will have to beat France or else they will be eliminated.

Prediction

The game between Denmark and Australia has a huge bearing on this match, with Peru knowing that they are out unless they beat France if Denmark win the early game. France were very disappointing in their opening game, but I’m expecting them to play much better against Peru on Thursday. I think we could see Olivier Giroud come into the starting line up for this one, and I’m backing France to pick up the victory.

Betting Tips (Coral)

France come into this match as the favourites to pick up the victory at odds of 6/10, whilst a win for Peru is priced up at 5/1, with the draw available at 14/5. A solid bet in this one looks like France and over 2.5 goals at 33/20, and I’m expecting France to put in a much better attacking display in this game than they did against Australia. Deschamps may decide to give Giroud a start in this game and the Chelsea striker is available at 7/2 to open the scoring and 13/10 to score at anytime, with both of them looking like solid bets to me.

Olivier Giroud to Score at Anytime – 13/10 (Coral)

 

Premier League 4-Fold

This is it; the final day of the Premier League season is upon us. Manchester City have been crowned champions, Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion have been relegated, with Swansea City needed a ludicrous goal swing to avoid joining them and all but two teams really have nothing left to play for. The battle for the fourth and final Champions League spot is the only real story on Sunday, with Liverpool needing to avoid defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion to seal it. In this article I will be putting together a 4-fold bet for you to take advantage of, with all of the odds coming courtesy of Coral and accurate at the time of writing.

Newcastle United vs Chelsea

Chelsea may live to rue their 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town in midweek, a result which means Liverpool now need only a draw on Sunday to finish in the top four. This could well be Antonio Conte’s last game in charge of Chelsea and he will be doing all he can to put the pressure on Liverpool above them. Newcastle have lost four straight games since hitting the 40-point mark and their players look to well and truly be on the beach, so I’m backing a comfortable Chelsea win in this one.

Chelsea to win – 8/13

Burnley vs Bournemouth

Sean Dyche has done a wonderful job at Burnley this season, taking one of the favourites for relegation to European qualification. Burnley are winless in their last four matches, but on the final day, in front of a raucous home crowd, I fancy them to beat a Bournemouth side who have won just one of their last five matches.

Burnley to win – 6/5

Swansea City vs Stoke City

Swansea City need a miracle to stay up; they are three points behind Southampton, but need a nine goal swing to survive. With Southampton facing a Manchester City side who have scored 105 goals this season, you never know, but first and foremost Swansea must beat Stoke City. Stoke City are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League with just six wins all season and no wins in their last 13 matches, so I’m backing a Swansea victory here.

Swansea City to win – 20/23

Crystal Palace vs West Bromwich Albion

It has been a quite bizarre season for Crystal Palace. After failing to score or pick up any points from their first seven games, they looked like certainties for relegation, but Roy Hodgson has come in and rejuvenated this talented side and they can now finish in the top half with a win on Sunday. Only Manchester City and Chelsea are in better form than Crystal Palace over the last five games and they should have too much for a relegated West Bromwich Albion side in this one.

Crystal Palace to win – 3/4

Total 4-Fold – 11/1 (Coral)
