      Tip Reasoning

      France’s win on Friday wasn’t necessarily the best indicator of how well-prepared they are for Euro 2016. They were playing a Portugal side with their eyes firmly focused on their crucial Monday night match-up with Albania. However, it did end a poor run of recent results in friendlies and a win in Portugal is still something to build confidence off of.

      They will enter the tournament next summer among the favourites with home fans holding serious expectations. Are they set up to make a difference next summer? There’s still a feeling that France are just lacking that little bit of true cutting edge. Paul Pogba hasn’t made a good start with Juventus in Serie A this season, he looks set to play a crucial role in the tournament playing behind Karim Benzema and whomever ends up playing alongside him.

      Serbia’s qualifying campaign has been mired by difficulty and a team that had promising players only a few years ago. They claimed a 2-0 win over Armenia and earlier in the campaign picked up a draw with the same side. They’ve got no hope of qualifying for Euro 2016, but playing friendlies might be just as valuable for squad development at this point. They’ve got nothing to lose during this trip, but it won’t be an easy test.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Quality and consistency

      France have had a consistent team and they’ve got that extra bit of quality. Serbia are a side with bigger problems and we don’t see them offering any serious challenge against a side that needs to keep their positive warm-up for Euro 2016 going.

      2. Benzema and Fekir will have strong games

      This is exactly the sort of game where we expect France to prosper. They’ll get a lot of chances, have a lot of the ball and not need to worry too much about anything else. It’s their perfect game and they can afford not to be clinical.

      3. No belief in Serbia

      There’s no need to say anything else here. Maybe they’ll surprise us, but it would be a big surprise.
