Les Bleus are three games away from repeating the 1998 feat where they were crowned the world champions and to stand a chance of making the dream a reality, they will have to get past the La Celeste with Bet365 backing them at (2.00) to clinch a win in the tie and (1.44) to qualify for the semi-final.

Oscar Tabarez’ side have won all their games in this competition thus far including a 2-1 victory against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal in the previous round.

The South Americans proved to be the better side in their last meeting with France courtesy of Luis Suarez solitary goal back in 2013 but have the odds of (4.60) to upset for a victory in this encounter while (2.75) is available for them to progress to the next round.

Both sides have met six times and four ended in stalemates, therefore it will not be out of place for them to cancel each other out at the end of 90 minutes, with the same betting firm offering (3.20) for that to happen.

France have not tasted defeat in their last eight games and are (1.20) to increase the unbeaten streak in this contest.

Both sides were on target in their last outings which makes the odds of (2.20) an interesting pick for goals at both ends of the field.

Although Luis Suarez has only managed to score twice in this showpiece for Uruguay, notwithstanding, the Barcelona striker is (3.20) to notch anytime here.

Kylian Mbappe has been phenomenal in this competition so far, having registered three goals besides other dazzling displays, the French man is (3.20) to find the net in this tie with Bet365.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
