Our football match prediction:
France will be looking to book their place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals with a win over Belarus at their Stade de France. Les Tricolores recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Bulgaria in their last group game and they will be looking to build on the triumph when they face the Belarusians in Paris. Didier Deschamps’ troops are a real force to be reckoned with at home and despite the fact that they played out a goalless draw with Luxembourg in their last home game in Group A, we predict that France will pick up all three points from Tuesday’s football match. Belarus head into the game following a 3-1 loss to Netherlands and seeing that they have nothing to play for in their last group game, we are tempted to put our money on Antoine Griezmann and Co, who face a must-win situation in Tuesday’s qualifier.
Highlighted Player (Raphael Varane):
French footballer Raphael Varane is regarded as one of the best defenders in the world. The 191-cm-tall centre back played for Lens in the 2010/2011 season and on 22 June, 2011 he signed a contract with Spanish giants Real Madrid. Jose Mourinho helped him made a great progress during and the French defender established himself as a first-team regular in the 2014/2015 La Liga campaing. Varane won his second Champions League trophy with Real Madrid in 2016 and it has to be noted that he clinched only one La Liga title with los Blancos (2011/2012). Varane is very fast and he is a player with extraordinary aerial ability and the ability to read the game. He often scores after set pieces and it has to be noted that he netted two goals for Real Madrid in all competitions in the 2014/2015 campaign. Varane plays for France national team, but he missed the 2016 European Championship finals through injury.
Highlighted Team (Belarus):
Belarus national football team have been competing on the international stage since 1992. The Belarusians played their first match against Lithuania on July 20, 1992, but the game was not FIFA-recognized. The White Wings faced Ukraine in their first official match, with the team sharing the spoils with the fellow former Soviet republic. Belarus have yet to qualify for a major tournament and they have slim chances of booking their place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The Belarusians recorded their biggest win on September 4, 2014, with the team rolling over Tajikistan 6-1 in Borisov and speaking of their biggest loss, they were hammered by Austria (0-5) on June 11, 2003. Alexander Hleb is the most famous footballer who played for the Belarus national team and it is well known that he spent four seasons at Barcelona. Belarus play their home games at Borisov Arena and they wear white shirts and white shorts when welcoming their rivals. The colour of their away kits is black.
