Expect goals in Ukraine - France friendly in bet of the day

Euro 2012 co-hosts take on an out of sorts Les Bleus in a nothing to play for contest. Backing goals looks to be the way to go.

International football continues to dominate the agenda as Euro 2012 co-hosts Ukraine host twice winners France in Donetsk.

Les Bleus laboured to a turgid draw with Belarus over the weekend with under-fire boss Laurent Blanc blaming tiredness for the showing. Expect the former defender to ring the changes for this clash which the hosts are narrow favourites to win.

Ukraine are getting used to playing friendlies ahead of next year's tournament which they co-host. Boss Oleg Blokhin is being a tad optimistic by forecasting his nation can win Euro 2012 outright but he can certainly upset the French this evening.

Andriy Shevchenko and co are a useful side at home holding World Cup finalists Holland to a draw last August. Sheva is going to retire after next year's tournament and is 13/8 (2.62) to punish France with a goal.

Andriy Voronin ( 13/5, 3.60) and Anatoliy Tymoschuk (17/2, 9.50) were on the mark for Ukraine at the weekend in a 2-0 win over Uzbekistan.

With nothing at stake in this game expect a few goals which is trading very favourably with bet365.

Tip: Over 2.5 goals @ 27/20 (2.35)
