France vs Ukraine Latest Odds
After winning eight and losing none of their last nine matches in all competitions, they are 2/5 (1,40) favorites with bet365 to reward the crowd with a victory in the capital.
Andriy Shevchenko’s men were beaten 4-0 by Spain in their last game, but can be supported at 7/1 (8,00) to bounce back with a shock win here.

France vs Ukraine team news
Houssem Aouar got a second chance to make his senior debut, after being forced to withdraw from the team the last time around due to testing positive for COVID-19.
Andriy Pyatov and Taras Stepanenko have retired, while Yevhen Konoplyanka and Oleksandr Zinchenko are injured for Ukraine.
France vs Ukraine preview
Having been forced to play their impressive 4-2 Nations League victory over Croatia without supporters, Didier Deschamps’ side will be confident to serve a similar display for the fans this time around.
In their current form, they should prove to be far too strong for a Yellow and Blue team whose only victories in their last eight away matches have been against Lithuania and Luxembourg.
The return of Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba should only add credit to that as well, given that they were absent for the win over Croatia but are back in the squad this time around.

Indeed, the chances of 11/10 (2,10) look generous on France who won by at least two net goals against a Ukrainian side so easily dismissed by Spain in their last outing.
The odds are correct at the time of writing. Please play responsibly.
