France vs New Zealand Prediction and Betting Tips
🏈 Rugby World Cup 2023 Match Preview
⏰ 9 September 2023 - 5:15 AEST
🏟 Stadium - Stade de France (Paris - Saint-Denis)
The eyes of the rugby world will be fixed on France versus New Zealand when the teams clash in a huge World Cup fixture on September 9th. This blockbuster matchup between two powerhouse sides is sure to entertain fans when it kicks off at 05:15 AEST.
According to the latest AusBetSites odds, hosts France have been installed as narrow favourites at 1.81 to get the win over the All Blacks. This is despite New Zealand's historical dominance in the head-to-head record between the nations in recent years.
With talented and experienced squads on both sides and plenty at stake in World Cup play, this match promises to be a tightly contested affair. While France has a home-ground advantage, never count out the All Blacks on rugby's biggest stage. Expect plenty of exciting running rugby when these two foes battle it out.
This blockbuster World Cup clash between rugby heavyweights France and New Zealand has classic written all over it. The All Blacks have dominated the recent head-to-head matchups, but France will look to use their home-ground advantage to spring an upset.
Both teams come in with just one defeat in their last five games. New Zealand squandered a halftime lead in their loss to South Africa, while France's lone defeat came at the hands of the All Blacks.
France will need big performances from the likes of Dupont, Ntamack and Penaud if they are to conquer the three-time defending world champions. New Zealand will be led by the experienced trio of Mo'unga, Retallick and Savea.
This one should go down to the wire. But the All Blacks tend to play their best rugby when it matters most. Back New Zealand to edge France in a thriller.
France vs New Zealand Head-to-Head
The head-to-head between France and New Zealand over the last 8 years tells the story of the All Blacks' dominance over their rivals. New Zealand have emerged victorious in 6 of the 7 matches against France during that span, with the French earning just a single win. Out of their 7 recent meetings, not a single one has ended in a draw. Despite France's poor record against the All Blacks, they will look to upset the odds when the teams meet in the upcoming World Cup clash. The French have home advantage this time around as they aim to reverse their fortunes against a New Zealand side that has had their number in recent head-to-head matches.
🟩🟥🟩🟩🟩 France come into their World Cup showdown with New Zealand in strong form, having won 4 of their last 5 matches. Their lone defeat in that stretch came in a close contest against tough opposition. Overall, Les Bleus' recent run of results has been impressive, with 4 victories providing momentum leading up to the blockbuster clash with the All Blacks. Having only lost 1 of their last 5 games, France appear to be gelling as a squad and peaking at the right time ahead of the rugby showpiece event. Their winning habit over the past handful of matches suggests France should provide a stern test for their rivals when they square off on the World Cup stage.
New Zealand Performance
🟥🟩🟩🟩🟩 Like their upcoming opponents, New Zealand come into this blockbuster World Cup clash in strong recent form. The All Blacks have won 4 of their last 5 matches, with their solitary defeat coming against tough competition in a close encounter. This run of results mirrors that of France, with New Zealand losing just 1 of their past 5 games. The All Blacks have built momentum leading into the tournament by securing 4 victories in their most recent matches. With a squad full of experienced, world-class players, New Zealand often elevate their game at major events like the World Cup.
