              France vs Luxembourg: Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips

              Luxembourg make the journey to the Stade Saint-Symphorien in Metz to take on France in an international friendly on Wednesday. France look to pick up a win in their preparations for the European Championships whereas Luxembourg look for their second ever win in the fixture.

              Date: 05/06/2024

              Kick off time: 20:00

              Location: Stade Saint-Symphorien

              This summer sees France aim to reach yet another Final at the top level of international football at the Euros. Luxembourg, on the other hand, look to cause an upset and give themselves something to get through this summer with.

              France finished top of their group in qualifying for the Euros. In Group B France took on the Netherlands, Greece, Ireland and Gibraltar. In eight games, France picked up seven wins and one draw, finishing the group unbeaten and four points clear of the Netherlands.

              At the tournament France will compete in Group D alongside Poland, the Netherlands again and Austria. Les Bleus have already won this competition twice, in 1984 as hosts and in 2000. Since then they have made the Final in 2016, won the World Cup in 2018 and made the Final of the World Cup in 2022.

              Luxembourg finished third in Group J in qualifying amongst the likes of Portugal, Slovakia, Iceland, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Liechtenstein. In ten games, Luxembourg picked up five wins, two draws and three losses, leaving them on 17 points and third.

              However, due to an impressive showing in the Nations League, Luxembourg had made the play-offs. However, after a 2 - 0 loss to Georgia in the Semi-finals, Luxembourg failed to qualify for the Euros, a competition they are still yet to compete in.

              France and Luxembourg have met 18 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in a friendly all the way back in 1911. France dominate this fixture with 16 wins in comparison to Luxembourg’s one win, the other game ending in a draw.

              However, this one win for Luxembourg came back in 1914 and the last five games in this fixture have been five wins for France. Luxembourg scoring is also rare in this fixture, with only one game in the last seven meetings having both sides on the scoresheet.

              In their last five games in all competitions, France have three wins, one draw and one loss.

              Mbappe opened the scoring early against the Netherlands, finding the back of the net in the seventh minute. He added another one early in the second half as Quilindschy Hartman’s late goal for the Netherlands acted more as a consolation as France held on for the 2 - 1 win.

              The next time out saw France register the biggest ever win in the European qualifiers against Gibraltar. Mbappe picked up a hat-trick, Kingsley Coman and Olivier Giroud grabbed themselves a brace and Ethan Santos scored an own goal. However, they were also joined on the scoresheet by Marcus Thuram, Warren Zaire-Emery, Jonathan Clauss, Youssouf Fofana and Ousmane Dembele in the 14 - 0 win for France over a ten-man Gibraltar.

              However, after this big win, France were halted by Greece. Randal Kolo Muani opened the scoring for France just before halftime but goals from Anastasios Bakasetas and Fotis Ioannidis gave Greece the lead before the hour mark. However, Fofana popped up with a goal late on to grab a 2 - 2 draw for France.

              In an international friendly, France hosted Germany. Florian Wirtz gave Germany the lead in the first minute and Kai Havertz doubled the lead early in the second half. France had just two shots on target as they slumped to a 2 - 0 loss.

              The last time out for France was against Chile. Marcelino Nunez opened the scoring for Chile in the sixth minute but both Fofana and Muani scored to give France the lead before halftime. Giroud added another in the second half to make Dario Osorio’s late goal a consolation in the 3 - 2 win for France.

              In their last five games in all competitions, Luxembourg have three wins and two losses.

              Despite Luxembourg having seven more shots than Slovakia, they could only manage three shots on target of which they were unable to convert. David Duris did manage to find the back of the net in the 77th minute to give Slovakia the 1 - 0 win.

              Luxembourg bounced back in the next time out against Bosnia and Herzegovina. A goal from Mathias Olesen in the sixth minute gave Luxembourg the lead and a penalty from Gerson Rodrigues doubled the lead before halftime. An own goal from Nihad Mujakic gave Luxembourg a third but Renato Gojkovic did grab a late goal for Bosnia and Herzegovina. However, Rodrigues picked up an even later goal to secure the 4 - 1 win for Luxembourg.

              The red card to Danel Sinani in the fifth minute put Luxembourg on the back foot but a goal from Rodrigues grabbed a 1 - 0 win for Luxembourg over Liechtenstein.

              The Semi-final of the play-offs for the European Championships saw Luxembourg take on Georgia. Another red card for Luxembourg saw them down to ten men, this time Maxime Chanot being dismissed. Budu Zivzivadze grabbed a goal in each half to give Georgia the 2 - 0 win.

              The most recent outing for Luxembourg was against Kazakhstan. Adilet Sadybekov opened the scoring in the second minute but goals from Rodrigues and Sinani gave Luxembourg the 2 - 1 win.
