France vs Australia Prediction & Pick

It's hard not to back the reigning champions here. France enters as the No. 4 team in FIFA's world rankings and boasts a roster full of young, experienced players. Kylian Mbappe, Olivier Giroud, Karim Benzema, and Antoine Griezmann are just four of the many stars France has ready to go Tuesday.

These two teams faced off in 2018 and France came out on top by a score of 2-1. However, Australia was never truly in the match as its only shot on goal came via a penalty. Look for head coach Didier Deschamps to have his boys motivated as a win would put France in the driver's seat in Group D.

Final Score Prediction: France: 3 | Australia: 1
