Greece are in action against France in Tuesday’s Euro - Qualifiers meeting.
All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Greece v France are shown below (plus the best game odds).
Greece, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following the 2-0 International Friendlies success over New Zealand.
The only scorer from Greece was Giorgos Giakoumakis (29').
An interesting trait of recent Greece games is seeing a zero in the scoreline.
From their prior sextet of matches leading up to this one, in 6 of them a bet on BTTS would've been a losing one. While that may be of interest, we will just have to wait and see if that pattern shall be replicated in this next game or not.
France come into this game following on from a 14-0 Euro - Qualifiers win over Gibraltar in their most recent outing.
For France, the goals were scored by Marcus Thuram (4'), Warren Zaïre-Emery (16'), Kylian Mbappé (30', 74', 82'), Jonathan Clauss (34'), Kingsley Coman (36', 65'), Youssouf Fofana (37'), Adrien Rabiot (63'), Ousmane Dembélé (73') and Olivier Giroud (89', 91'). Ethan Santos (3' Own goal) scored for Gibraltar.
Indicating their partiality to productive matches, we’ve had goals 28 times in the last 6 games in which France have taken to the field, making it a mean average of 4.67 goals each fixture. Opposing teams have managed 4 of those goals.

Team News: Greece
The Greece manager Gustavo Poyet will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this clash owing to a fully injury-free squad ready to go.
It looks as if Ethniki could kick off with a 4-3-3 formation for the game, handing starts to Odisseas Vlachodimos, George Baldock, K. Mavropanos, Panagiotis Retsos, K. Tsimikas, Anastasios Bakasetas, Andreas Bouchalakis, Dimitrios Pelkas, Giorgos Masouras, Georgios Giakoumakis and G. Konstantelias.
Team News: France
Due to a completely injury-free squad available to select from, the France manager Didier Deschamps has no fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this game.
It’s our belief that Les Bleus seem likely to utilise a 4-2-3-1 formation, giving starts to Brice Samba, Jonathan Clauss, Jean-Clair Todibo, Axel Disasi, Theo Hernandez, Youssouf Fofana, Adrien Rabiot, Ousmane Dembele, Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and Randal Kolo Muani.
We feel that Greece must be fancied to score a goal against this France team, but one goal is unlikely to be enough to prevent defeat.
We’ve gone for a narrow 1-2 advantage for France when the referee blows the final whistle. Should be a good one.
