Fantastic France to do it in Germany

331

Seven weeks on from winning the World Cup, France will be looking to lay down a marker in the new Nations League away in Germany.

France to win @ 19/10

Les Bleus excelled in Russia, being crowned world champions for a second time and will not be lacking confidence in Munich.

The French are unbeaten in their last four trips across the border too, winning three of those and the current squad does not seem to be plagued by the egos that hindered previous generations.

Germany had a nightmare in Russia but Joachim Low has stuck with the majority of the same side.

For me, for all their talent, Die Mannschaft look too slow across the field and France can light up the Allianz Arena on the opening night of the Nations League.

Wales to win to zero @ 31/20

There is also a bit of a grudge match in Cardiff where Wales host the Republic of Ireland.

The pair most recently met in qualifying for this year’s World Cup – which Ireland eventually edged – and there is bad blood after Neil Taylor’s tackle that left Seamus Coleman with a broken leg in the March 2017 clash.

While they have plenty of spirit, the Republic lack goals and can be blunt in attack, scoring just 12 times during that aforementioned campaign.

In contrast, the Welsh have Gareth Bale and his stardust could make the difference in what could be a cagey affair.
