France vs South Africa – Preview

Many are anticipating a closely-contested showdown between France and South Africa in the last Rugby World Cup quarter-final on Sunday night in Paris.

France have not lost on home soil since Scotland defeated them in a Six Nations match behind closed doors two-and-a-half years ago, and they will be hoping to end the Springboks’ defence of the Webb Ellis Cup.

France enter the match as tournament favourites after topping their pool and remaining unbeaten.

South Africa have been beatable this season but have also shown that they can slug it out with the best.

This match displays the lopsided nature of the Rugby World Cup draw with the No 2 ranked Springboks facing No 3 ranked France.

France’s attacking ability, rated as the best in the world by some critics, makes them an attractive prospect in the handicap market.

France at -9.5 will give you that extra bit on top of the unqualified win for the hosts.

Damian Penaud to score and France to win doesn’t blow the doors off it is another shot that could well land.

Meanwhile, if you fancy South Africa for the win, think about adding Bongi Mbonambi to score.

South Africa are short to not give up any cards across the contest with France and given the impact red cards had on their last meeting that seems spot on. However, there is good value in backing a single card.

If you’re keen on backing South Africa to go all the way and win the Rugby World Cup for a fourth time, now would be a good time to do it, with odds likely to shorten significantly should they get beyond France.

France are unlikely to receive a significant boost from getting beyond South Africa, but few would think they would lose to either England or Fiji in the semis.

The winner of this match will almost certainly also go on to the final, probably to face either Ireland or New Zealand.


France vs South Africa – Predictions:

  • France at -9.5
  • France to win and Damian Penaud to score
  • Total cards over 0.5
  • Bongi Mbonambi to score
  • Cheslin Kolbe to score
