Republic of Ireland vs France Prediction & Pick
These teams enter Monday on differing ends of the momentum scale. Ireland barely survived an international friendly against Latvia and is need of a game-changing effort, while France kicked off Kylian Mbappe's run as captain with a dazzling offensive display (4-0 win) and wants to keep scoring.
Latvia exposed Ireland's defensive shortcomings on Wednesday, which gives France a great chance to score early and dictate the pace here. After all, the French have scored at least two goals in each of its last five matches. I like them to end the Irish's 13-year home unbeaten streak in Euro qualifiers.
Final Score Prediction: Republic of Ireland: 1 | France: 2
