[World Cup 2022 Prediction] “It's Coming Home” or “Allez Les Bleus” will ring throughout the Al Bayt Stadium at the end of England's World Cup 2022 quarter-final against France on Saturday evening.

England vs France Prediction: Clash of Titans

England beat Spain on penalties in the last 16, while France strolled to a 6-1 win over a poor Switzerland team to set up an interesting and surprising quarter-final meeting at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The Three Lions defeated Senegal 3-1 to go to the final eight, while the reigning champions defeated Poland 3-1 to keep their chances of winning back-to-back titles alive.

England form

An error-plagued England squad appeared to be the most likely to surrender early on against Senegal, who did not give the Three Lions a second to breathe with their excellent pressing, but the tide quickly shifted when 19-year-old Jude Bellingham seized the game by the scruff of the neck.

England form

Being only the fourth African team to reach the World Cup's last eight - and the first in 12 years - enthralled a crowded Education City Stadium, which was mostly occupied by Moroccan supporters, whose fervor has been a characteristic of these championships.

Southgate was overjoyed to see his team show "ruthlessness" in another game where a poor start created a familiar sense of dread, and a semi-final with Morocco or Portugal now awaits if the Euro 2020 runners-up can knock out the holders. A three-game stretch without conceding a goal at the World Cup bodes well for England, and Southgate may become the first Three Lions manager in history to take the side to more than one semi-final, but the most fearsome of dangerous rivals stands in their way.

France form

As Kane moved closer to the England record with his 52nd international goal, Olivier Giroud's 52nd strike sent the AC Milan forward to the top of the France lists, as Les Bleus showcased a clinical edge that Robert Lewandowski's Poland couldn't match.

France form

France has already reached the World Cup quarter-finals in five of the previous seven editions, including each of the last three, and Didier Deschamps' men have won eight of their last ten knockout matches against fellow UEFA teams, but they have yet to silence all detractors.

Indeed, France is still without a clean sheet at the 2022 World Cup and has lost both of their previous games with England at the event in 1966 and 1982, but recent history does not favour the Three Lions, who have only one win in their past eight matches with the world champions.

England vs France H2H Stats

The last time England played France in a major competition was in 2012 when the game finished in a 1-1 tie. Prior to it, France overcame the Three Lions in each team's opening game at Euro 2004. The last competitive victory for England over France dates back to the 1982 World Cup.

The last time these two teams met in a competitive match was in the summer of 2017. Despite going down and having Raphael Varane sent off, France won 3-2. England is presently tied for the tournament lead in goals with 12, but Gareth Southgate's team hasn't depended on a single individual to score. England has seen eight different players score goals, with Bukayo Saka and Marcus Rashford scoring three apiece.

England vs France Betting Tips

England Double Chance

England has a solid record against France throughout the years, with 17 victories, 5 draws, and only 9 losses in 31 prior meetings. However, in recent years, France has had the upper hand against England, although the previous three matches between the two countries have resulted in one win, one tie, and one defeat apiece. England has been good defensively and knows how to score goals in this tournament, whilst France has struggled defensively at times and will have a difficult test against this England assault.

Both Teams to Score

Both of these sides have found it relatively simple to score goals in Qatar, with England being the competition's highest scorer during the group stage. While Southgate's side has failed to surrender a goal since their 6-2 win over Iran, they will face their hardest test of the tournament against France, which has perhaps the finest player in the world right now in Mbappe. It's difficult to envision either team maintaining a clean sheet for the first 90 minutes of what could be a thrilling game of football.

England vs France Best Tips From Betimate

  • Pick: Over 2.5 goals scored

Two of the World Cup's highest-scoring sides square off here, and we anticipate their free-scoring style to bring this bet home. Mbappe and co. have deservedly dominated headlines, but England also has one of the most dynamic frontlines in world sport. Along with Tottenham talisman Harry Kane, who won the 2018 World Cup Golden Boot with six goals, the Three Lions have also received goals from Phil Foden, Marcus Rashford, and Bukayo Saka.
