France host England in arguably the biggest fixture of the midweek international friendly round, and Betfair are back with their enhanced offers for new players.
With so little separating the two international juggernauts on paper, it can be difficult for punters to make their pick, with the balancing act of risk versus reward far from easy or straightforward.
Betfair are therefore allowing new customers the chance to back either France at 30/1 (31.0) or England at 60/1 (61.0) with a £1 max stake. The potential payout is a handsome one, while any potential loss is insignificant versus what punters stand to gain.

The form books side firmly with a France win this time out, with Didier Deschamps’ men boasting a strong record on home soil. Les Bleus have won seven of their last nine friendlies in front of their fans, with Olivier Giroud in particular prolific with seven goals in the last five home outings excluding Euro 2016.
Despite their late capitulation in Sweden last time out, the hosts pose a serious threat to England and they will be eager to maintain the upper hand against their cross-channel rivals. France have lost only one of the last six meetings they have hosted against the Three Lions, who are certainly not looking in imperious form at the moment.
Gareth Southgate’s men have now gone their last three internationals on the road without a win. As long as France can avoid the lapses that have surfaced in recent outings, they should be able to count on a prestigious friendly win, making odds of 30/1 (31.0) for new Betfair customers worthy of consideration.
Like in all large games, though, anything can happen and England will be hoping to capitalise on the favourites’ recent wobbles to snatch a victory. Since losing the Euro 2016 final to Portugal, France have lost just twice but those two defeats have come in their last three outings.
The Three Lions are chasing consecutive friendly wins following their last - a 2-0 result at Wembley in 2015 - and are spearheaded once more by 2017 form man Harry Kane, who has netted nine times in his last four games for club and country.
The Tottenham star can become the fourth Spurs player to net in England’s last 12 meetings with France on Tuesday, with any strike surely putting the guests in good position to go on to seal a morale-boosting result. Those looking to back Southgate’s side at virtually zero risk need not look further than Betfair’s 60/1 (61.0) with £1 max stake.
