Didier Deschamps’ men will be looking to open their campaign on an impressive note when they clash with the Socceroos

Australia kick-off their 2018 quadrennial tournament with France on Saturday at Kazan' Arena.

Bert van Marwijk’s men will be heading into this tie buoyed by their triumph over Czech Republic and Hungary in their previous two warm-up games.

However, considering that they lost their last meeting with Les Bleus, they have been tagged as massive underdogs for this tie at the odds of (15.00) with Bet365.

Both sides have met thrice and only one ended in stalemate. Nevertheless, punters who are bold can back a repeat at the price of (7.00) with the same betting firm.

Didier Deschamps’ charges are aiming to nick their second title following their success at the 1998 edition and will look to start here on an impressive note.

They won three of their last four friendly games and are hot favourites at (1.22) to come out on top in this encounter.

The Blues have not tasted defeat in their previous five outings and are ​ (1.040) to continue the impeccable form against the Socceroos.

Given that their previous meeting ended 6-0 in favour of France, Deschamps’ side have been offered at (1.72) to win to nil while (1.65) is available for over 2.5 goals to surface in the contest.

Kylian Mbappe was on the scoresheet in their last outing against the United States and the Paris Saint-Germain attacker is (2.10) with Bet365 to find the net anytime.
