Wales have had live with the backdrop of Ryan Giggs’ troubles, but they haven’t let it show on the pitch and have performed admirably, winning four of their last five under caretaker manager Robert Page.
Promotion to League A of the Nations League was completed with victories over the Republic of Ireland and Finland, a much-changed side held a strong Mexico at bay in a 1-0 friendly success, while a crucial three points were taken against the Czech Republic in World Cup qualifying.
Although Wales have only lost twice in 17 appearances (W11-D4-L2), these were inflicted by England and Belgium, who are far and away the best teams they’ve encountered over this period.
Still, even against the latter, they were willing to have a good go and opened the scoring through a classy move with Gareth Bale at its heart and finished off by Harry Wilson.
France To Win And Under 3.5 Goals
France are currently on a run of 14 wins from 18 matches, losing just once, though did lose their last friendly hosting Iceland in November, while the Ukraine walked away from a World Cup qualifier in Paris with a point in March.
However, with deep resources at their disposal, aided by the return of Karim Benzema after a six-year absence from the national setup, Les Bleus should expect to win this encounter.
Still, Didier Deschamps may elect to rest some of his most potent stars like Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe, while midfield duo Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante are sure to be handed a rest after partaking in European finals for Man Utd and Chelsea respectively.
Wales are unlikely to do the same and can call upon key men Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale, while there is a solid back-up cast to give France a test.

France To Win 2-0
It’s also worth bearing in mind that despite rich depths of talent, the French have only scored four goals across their past three matches against the Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Bosnia, so a well-drilled Welsh outfit have considerable hope of keeping things tight.
France won 2-0 when these two sides last met in November 2017, and a similar outcome here would be no surprise.
Wales have certainly fared better on home turf of late, winning 10 of 12 unbeaten games now since the start of 2019.
However, they’re a much poorer W4-D2-L6 on their travels since September 2018, with those victories coming over Ireland, Azerbaijan, Finland and Bulgaria, while the two stalemates were picked up versus Slovakia and Ireland.
