Betting Insight: Can Croatia Stun Mbape-Less France?

France will be without Kyrian Mbappe as they take on Croatia at Stade de France in Paris in one of the UEFA Nations League games tonight.

The PSG star tested positive for Covid19 and has already left the team’s camp.

He will be dearly missed, after scoring the only goal as a below-par France edged Sweden.

Didier Deschamps will continue to be without Paul Pogba and Tanguy Ndombele who also tested positive for Covid19 before the Sweden game.

Anthony Martial and Ben Yedder are expected to lead the frontline while Adrien Rabiot may continue to get a nod in the middle of the park.

Despite the absentees, France boasts with strong depth and quality that can go an extra mile in this competition, but they will need more than that if they are to overcome a wounded Croatia side.

Croatia come into this one after suffering a humiliating 4-1 loss to Champions Portugal but will seek to make amends in Paris.

Even without stars like Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic, Croatia look decent on paper to fetch a result tonight.

Andrej Kramaric, Ivan Perisic, Dejan Lovren and Mateo Kovacic are some of the household names in their team.

Who To Trust? You will have more balls than me if you approach this one in 1X2 market. And, I am being cautious here, this can go either way. The last meeting between the sides saw France beat Croatia 4-2 in the World Cup finals, and Croatia shipped in four goals against Portugal, so, I am putting my money on Over 2.5 goals. Check odds here.
