101GG Betting Tip on France v Ecuador
France are through but Didier Deschamps will not want to lose the momentum built up over two games where Les Bleus have scored eight goals.
A deep squad, packed full of talent, means Deschamps should be able to tinker and still go for the jugular against Ecuador.
The front three of Valbuena, Benzema and Giroud looked sensational against Switzerland and could well be started in this one to continue their fine teamwork.
Ecuador simply have to better the result from Switzerland who face Honduras in the other game in Group E.
Enner Valencia, two-goal hero from the Honduras match, is clearly the man to look out for and has predictably been linked with some big European clubs in recent days.
This could well be a high scoring and exciting encounter with Ecuador pushing to qualify and France aiming to hold on to their momentum.
101GG Prediction: France 2 – Ecuador 2.
