Current form — France vs Kazakhstan
Les Bleus out to extend winning run
France look to build on their current momentum with another positive result. Didier Deschamps’ side have really been enjoying their football in their previous 3 matches, which started off with a 2-0 win against Finland. They went on to beat Belgium by 2-3, before also getting the better of Spain in a 1-2 victory.
The visitors low on confidence
The mood around Kazakhstan is pretty low right now as a win has proven hard to come by in recent weeks. In their last 3 matches, Talgat Baysufinov’s side first drew 2-2 with Bosnia before losing 2-0 to the reverse fixture. They 2-0 lost again last time out to Finland.

Current table in the World Cup
Looking at the goalscorer market, it would seem a good idea to side with Karim Benzema. He is one of the France players, who is showing decent form on the international stage. He managed to find the back of the net 4 times in his most recent outings. Surely, he will want to add more goals against Kazakhstan.
The visitors will be looking to in-form Rusland Valiullin to find the net once again, as he has been their main man recently.
