France are looking in rampant form having scored 8 goals in the opening two fixtures, after humbling Honduras in their opening group game France tore Switzerland apart scoring 5 goals and conceding only two. They have made it to the next round in flying colours.

French nation team will take on Switzerland for their 2nd group game in “Group E” and the winner of this match most definately going to the knockout stages as both teams won their opening matches. The game will be the 2nd kickoff of the day on friday starting at 16:00 Local (19:00 GMT)

This game is much more competitive on paper that it really looks, the casual football fans won’t rate Switzerland against France but this swiss side has such a good record in the last couple of years. They went unbeaten in their qualifying for world cup and they rely on their water tight defence. France played superbly against Honduras the other day but Switzerland will provide much a difficult task.

Possible Starting Lineups – France vs Switzerland

Match Statistics & Predictions:

A real tough game for France and there is draw written all over it. Switzerland has a compact effiecent defence and they have quality players with pace going forward. France did a great job against Honduras but they were down to 10 men most the match.

The only meeting in the world cup between these two sides came in 2006 world cup which ended in a 0-0 draw, while last 5 matches between the two sides produced 3 draws and 2 wins for France and the last three games has been draws only producing 2 goals.

Benzema looked sharpe and took his goals really well, his brace against Honduras is the first by a french player since 1998 final when Zidan scored twice. Benzema has scored 8 goals in his last 7 starts for France.

This world cup has the premier league tone to it, any team can beat anyone which makes it harder to predict the results. Having said that I am sitting on the fence with this one with a 1-1 draw and I expect both teams to get through this group unbeaten.

    France are playing well so far and although the swiss test was good but it was nothing compared to the up and coming south american teams who they will eventually face in the coming rounds. Especially the goals gifted towards the end were a blemish to their outstanding performance but they have to tighten up the defense as they progress further and should also ensure that chances are not squandered. They have to make sure whatever chances they get at scoring should be converted which they are well capable of and there should not be any misses which would otherwise haunt them especially against the better oppositions.
