This is a very interesting match as the one time favourites of the group France, now have to get a win here against the hosts South Africa and hope for the other result in World Cup Group A go their was, as the teams clamber for a place in the last 16. France struggled in qualification for the tournament they still remain at odds with each other based on the first two games, drawing 0-0 with Uruguay and losing 2-0 to Mexico. Despite their experience and the fact they were the finalists last time in 2006 before losing on penalties to Italy in a tight match, the team seem at odds with the manager Raymond Domeneche.

South Africa on the other hand are an inexperienced bunch who have had very little competitive football recently having failed to qualify for the African Cup of Nations. The draw against Mexico and defeat to Uruguay mean this is a huge worry for their fans but the home support will be hoping to roar them to victory, this will be the decider for both teams as they look to move to the knock-out phase.

France v South Africa Match Odds

The french are of course the strong favourites to take the win here and at this stage are odds-on to do just that. The match odds are of course liable to change following the first two games but South African punters will be hoping that home support will take them to an unexpected win. If they are playing well then South Africa may be capable of picking up a point but it is hard to see past a a French victory.

Latest Team News

This will be both teams last game in Group A meaning that each camp are likely to be carrying a few bumps and bruises following two tough games. Major Championship football always takes its toll on any squad and this will be no different for France and South Africa who are meeting here at the Free state Stadium. France should have enough in the squad to absorb one or two injuries or suspensions but they will still want their star names in the eleven, Ribery and Henry are the big time players and if they are fit then they are capable of beating anyone.

The South African squad is much thinner on the ground and they will be desperate to avoid any injuries or suspensions before they play the French in what could a crucial match in Group A. With only two places up for grabs for the knock-out stage South Africa may need a result from this game and will need to be right at their very best if they are to have a chance.

Past Meetings and Result

There are no recent match-ups between these two so no particular trends to take notice of for punters, it is a huge match in group a and could be fraught with nerves. France are the justifiable favourites and should win of on form but in a big match there is no guarantee of that, the French have been inconsistent of late which will be a worry for their punters. The final result will be made available at the conclusion of the match which will be interesting and will include all the major incidents of note.
