THE PREDICTION

After France's shock defeat at the hands of Turkey back in June, they will be determined not to slip up again in this qualifying campaign. While Albania offer minimal threat, the French will be keen to wrap this game up early and avoid any shocks so expect them to seal the points in the first half.
