Our Analysis: Form of Both Teams

The World Champions take on dark horses Austria in their first EUROs match in Group D on Monday evening.

France head into the tournament as the clear second favourites to continue winning trophies, while Austria have been tipped up at big prices to cause an upset.

However, the team in blue qualified in style. The squad is filled with talent, including Real Madrid’s new signing, Kylian Mbappe, who is expected to lead the line. Therefore, expectations are high.

Austria are unbeaten in seven matches, which includes a promising 2-0 win over Germany. They will prove difficult to beat throughout the group stage.

Austria vs France Bet 1: France Victory @ 1.50 with BC.Game

France are the favourites to win the EUROs alongside Gareth Southgate’s England and it's no real surprise to see why. The World Cup winners boast talent throughout the squad, making it difficult to know exactly who to field in the starting XI - a good problem to have during a long format tournament.

As expected, France dominated their EURO qualifying group, finishing four points ahead of the Netherlands, scoring 29 goals in eight matches and conceding just three.

Although all eyes will be on Kylian Mbappe, France also have other strikers who have been incredible across other European leagues this season. Inter’s Marcus Thuram and Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann are likely to start, and Austria may struggle to tame such quality.

Austria have been very promising in recent months, but keeping the World champions quiet will be an extremely difficult task.

Austria vs France Bet 2: Kylian Mbappé Anytime Scorer @ 2.0 with BC.Game

Kylian Mbappe has once again had a ridiculous season statswise for PSG and heads into the EUROs having just signed for Real Madrid. Expectations are always high, but the 25-year-old thrives under pressure and he’ll be their main threat throughout the tournament.

Having scored 27 Ligue 1 goals, eight in the Coupe de France and another eight in the Champions League, it’s hard to know exactly how to stop him.

The new Real Madrid striker also scored nine goals across France’s eight qualifying matches. His numbers have simply been insane across 2024.

The fact Mbappe is 2.00 to score anytime looks like an incredible opportunity not to be missed. If he’s ever this price or above, it’s one you must take.

Austria vs France Bet 3: Both Teams to Score @ 2.00 with BC.Game

Although we believe France have enough to get over the line, you can’t ignore Austria’s current form heading into the tournament. Goals and wins against Germany, Slovakia and Serbia all stand out, but they also blew Turkey away 6-1.

There are a lot of experienced players within the squad from high-profile clubs, which may have been overlooked by those expecting a comfortable victory for France.

France also head into this match having conceded in three of their last five matches. Conceding two goals against Greece, Germany as well as Chile is a cause for concern, and Austria will be keen to try and exploit their defensive issues.
