France vs England in the Six Nations on March 19, 2022 - Odds & Prediction

France vs England in the Six Nations on March 19, 2022 - Odds & Prediction

England head to Paris on Saturday looking to ruin France's Grand Slam dreams in this year’s instalment of 'Le Crunch'.

France are without a Six Nations championship since 2010, when they also won the Grand Slam, but they're firm favourites to win in the Stade de France this weekend.

The French blew it in the final match of last season's championship to hand the title to Wales, and they'll be aiming to erase that pain with a Grand Slam in front of partisan home support.

However, Eddie Jones and England will be aiming to spoil the party as they look to end their own Six Nations campaign on a high, knowing that defeat would potentially see them finish 5th for the second year in a row.

So, with it all on the line for France in Paris on Saturday evening, it's set to be a match not to be missed.

England +8 @ Evens

The early dismissal of Charlie Ewels against Ireland effectively ended England's chances of victory at Twickenham, but they put up a hell of a fight for 70+ minutes.

They went for a simple, basic game plan after losing Ewels, focusing on a great kick-chase and a fantastic defence, but the spirit they showed will have impressed coach Jones.

He'll look to channel that spirit as England head to Paris, and they historically run France close in the Stade de France.

France were victorious in 2020 and 2018 by seven and six points respectively, and England, with an eight-point start on Saturday, looks a solid bet.(SportNation)

The French have to go back to 2006 for the last time they defeated England by more than seven points in a competitive match, and that trend looks set to continue this weekend.

France form, squad news, opinion

France have been the dominant side in this year's Six Nations, and after falling at the last hurdle last season, they'll be targeting a first Six Nations success and Grand Slam in 12 years with victory over England.

A hard-fought victory over Wales on Friday in Cardiff saw France run out 13-9 winners, with scrum-half Antoine Dupont pulling the strings for Les Bleus.

His battle with Harry Randall this weekend will go a long way to deciding who will take the win in the French capital.

France have scored 14 tries in their four Six Nations games, whereas England have managed just seven, and with the Grand Slam on the line in Paris, you'd back France to beat England's defence on more than one occasion with the pace and flair they offer.

England form, squad news, opinion

England dug deep in their loss against Ireland, and that performance could be the making of this squad as they look towards the World Cup next year.

Next on the radar is a trip to Paris, though, and Eddie Jones will be hoping his side can show the same sort of attitude and commitment that they showed against last time out.

This battle is likely to be won upfront, with both packs aggressive at the breakdown, but England head into this clash with a day less rest than France, as well as having played 78 minutes against Ireland with just 14 men.

That could well be the difference here, and England will likely run France close but ultimately run out of steam.

History

France and England first clashed in 1906, and they have now played each other on 108 occasions – with England winning 60, France winning 41, and 7 matches ending in a draw.

In recent years, England have had the edge, winning five of the last seven matches between them, including last year's Six Nations match at Twickenham that they edged 23-20.

About the Venue

The Stade de France is located just north of Paris in Saint-Denis and was constructed for the 1998 FIFA World Cup, hosting the final that France won 3-0 against Brazil.

It is home to both the French national football team and the French rugby union team, while hosting domestic rugby matches for State Francais and Racing Metro 92.

With a capacity of 80,698, it is also due to host the athletics events at the 2024 Summer Olympic Games.

The current COVID-19 protocols in France mean that supporters entering the Stade de France must show their 'Pass Sanitaire’ - meeting one of three conditions - a negative PCR test in the previous 72 hours, certificate of Covid recovery (between 11 days and six months), or a vaccine passport.

Supporters must also wear a mask and provide a photographic ID to enter the stadium.

Conclusion

The French have been excellent throughout this year's Six Nations, and no one would begrudge them the title and a Grand Slam.

England are once more rebuilding in-between World Cups, but there was plenty to like about their loss to Ireland at Twickenham and Eddie Jones and his squad would love nothing more than to ruin the French celebrations on Saturday.

They're likely to come up short in what's sure to be a titanic battle, but they look a solid bet to push the French, who may just struggle to cover an eight-point start.
