France v Tonga Tips & Predictions
6th October 2019 – 08:45
Match Preview & Team News
France will take on Tonga just four days after the second-round tie with the United States. They will thus likely battle the Pacific Islanders with a mixed line-up with the crucial match against England upcoming. Les Bleus will thus play three matches within just ten days. This is why they did not push hard against the US team in the mid-week.
Les Bleus managed an easy 33-9 win even though the game was still in balance until 15 minutes from time. Huge, Raka, Fickou, Serin, and Poirot were all on the scoresheet in a five-try victory for the French team in Fukuoka. They maintained the perfect record at the World Cup in Japan after edging past Argentina on the opening Matchday.
Tonga easily lost to both England and Argentina so far in the tournament. They will have to wait for the last-round tie against the United States to try and pick up the only win in the competition as we can’t imagine them shocking the French team on Sunday. However, the Tongans could take advantage of the French rotations and fatigue to pull off a strong resistance and keep the game within their reach for as long as possible.
Fullback Telusa Veainu scored the team’s two tries so far in the tournament. Both came against the Pumas. Tonga will make it as physical as possible for France here which is why we doubt Les Bleus will cruise their way towards a comprehensive victory with plenty of tries in the process.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
France will rotate their squad here, while the Tongans generally left a decent impression against both England and Argentina so far. The main pick is Tonga not to lose by a margin higher than 24 points at the odds of 1/1.

The second bet is Tonga not to lose the first half by more than 12 points difference at the same evens odds.
