France should be confident of continuing their impressive home form against Albania – but they will know that a slip up here could let in Turkey and Iceland in the group standings.

Our Betting Tips

France are averaging three goals a game in this qualifying phase so far and there is nothing to suggest that the homes side will not find the net regularly against Albania – even if the visitors look to stifle the French attack.


Turkey managed to find France’s weak spots on match day three as they recoded a memorable 2-0 win in Konya. Albania do not have the same kind of talent at their disposal however and it is unlikely that they will be able to beat Hugo Lloris in the France goal.


It is only the start of the season for the majority of the French side but this is a team that has enjoyed playing together over the last few years and will look to make Albanian defensive errors pay. A big home win could well be on the cards.

Head to Head

Albania did shock France in a friendly in 2015 by beating the two times European Championship winners 1-0. But that result has proved to be the exception to the rule as France have won five other matches and drawn one.


  • The statistics do not seem to give Albania a chance of winning this one in Paris as France are unbeaten in European Championship qualifiers at home since 2010.
  • Albania’s greatest achievement to date was qualifying for the European Championship finals in 2016. They met France in the group stage, going down 2-0 – with both goals coming in the 90th minute.
  • France tops the group on goal difference, sharing the lead with Turkey and Iceland who also have nine points. But Didier Deschamps’ men have only played one game at home so far.
  • When Albania qualified for Euro 2016 they finished second in their group to eventual winners Portugal. They beat both Serbia and Denmark to the other qualification spot.

Our Prediction for Albania vs France

Home win for France

It is almost 10 years since France last lost a European Championship qualification game at home – and that trend will not end with the visit of Albania. There is an interesting tussle for the top two places in Group H after France’s defeat in Turkey though – and they will know that they cannot afford to slip up against the smaller nations in the group.
