France will be out for revenge when they welcome Turkey to the Stade de France in Monday’s Euro 2020 qualification clash.
Les Bleus went down 2-0 in the reverse encounter at the Konya Buyuksehir Belediye Stadium, and the pair come into this game level on points at the top of Group H.
France vs Turkey latest odds
Having won 21 and lost just one of their last 26 competitive fixtures on home turf, they are 1.30 favourites with Sportsbet to restore pride with a victory that would send them clear in first.
Senol Gunes’ side have won eight of their previous nine matches, and can be backed at to 7.50 to put themselves within touching distance of qualification by coming out on top in Paris.

France vs Turkey team news
The hosts are without a number of key players due to injury, including Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and Hugo Lloris.
Gunes is likely to stick with the same line-up that overcame Albania 1-0 on Friday, meaning Leicester’s Caglar Soyuncu will have to settle for a place on the bench once again.
France vs Turkey preview
While they have scored five goals fewer than the world champions after seven group games, the Crescent stars remain neck and neck thanks to a defence that has conceded just twice so far.
With eight clean sheets to their name in the last 10 fixtures, the visiting defence will back themselves to frustrate Didier Deschamps’ men, who needed a second-half penalty to scrape narrowly past Iceland on Friday.
France vs Turkey predictions
Needing only to avoid defeat to maintain their grip on top spot, odds of 2.06 are well worth backing on Turkey keeping things tight in their 10th match in 14 that features no more than two goals.
