Tuesday's international friendly predictions including France vs. Bulgaria

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Tuesday's international friendlies, including France vs. Bulgaria.


Poland vs. Iceland (Tuesday, 5.00pm)

Poland play host to Iceland on Tuesday evening looking to earn a morale-boosting victory ahead of their appearance at Euro 2020.

While the visitors have missed out on another outing at a major tournament, they could also benefit from a win after a disappointing period of results since September.

We say: Poland 2-0 Iceland


Given their respective scenarios, both sets of players will want to make a positive impression in this contest. With that in mind, the home team should have too much quality for opponents who lack any kind of form against the better teams in world football.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Cameroon vs. Nigeria (Tuesday, 5.00pm)

Cameroon and Nigeria meet in Wiener Neustadt on Tuesday evening just four days after the first friendly between the two sides.

A first-half goal from Andre-Frank Anguissa earned Cameroon a 1-0 win on that occasion, leaving the Indomitable Lions motivated to record successive victories over their African rivals.

We say: Cameroon 1-1 Nigeria


Friday's fixture proved to be a competitive affair and we expect no different on Tuesday. The two sides are evenly matched, leaving us to predict a low-scoring draw in Austria.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Hungary vs. Rep. Ireland (Tuesday, 7.00pm)

Hungary will round off their preparations for this summer's European Championships with a clash against Republic of Ireland in Budapest on Tuesday evening.

The home side will enter the friendly off the back of a 1-0 win over Cyprus on Friday, while Republic of Ireland came from behind to record a 4-1 success over Andorra.

We say: Hungary 1-0 Republic of Ireland


Republic of Ireland will be looking to make it back-to-back victories under Kenny for the first time, but we are finding it difficult to look past the home side here. Hungary will want to enter Euro 2020 off the back of another victory, and we fancy Rossi's team to record a narrow success in Budapest.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Czech Republic vs. Albania (Tuesday, 7.15pm)

Concluding their preparations for the upcoming Euro 2020 finals, the Czech Republic host Albania on Tuesday evening, at Prague's Generali Arena.

Following a heavy defeat in their first post-season run-out, the Czechs will aim for a sharper performance back on home soil, while their visitors want to build momentum before returning to the World Cup qualifying trail in September.

We say: Czech Republic 1-0 Albania


As well-drilled Albania have conceded only twice in their last four games - with clean sheets in both of their last two - it is unlikely that the Czech Republic can set off for Glasgow with a hatful of goals to boost their spirits.

Instead, the able - but far from prolific - home side can eke out a win, while allowing several squad members their chance to stake a claim to start against Scotland next week.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Spain vs. Lithuania (Tuesday, 7.45pm)

Spain will complete their preparations for this summer's European Championships with a friendly against Lithuania in Leganes on Tuesday night.

La Roja will enter the contest off the back of a goalless draw with Portugal on Friday, while Lithuania suffered a 3-1 loss to Latvia in the Baltic Cup on the same evening.

Spain's team for this match will involve Under-21 players, as Sergio Busquets has tested positive for coronavirus, meaning that close contacts of the midfielder are having to self-isolate.

We say: Spain 2-1 Lithuania


Spain's plans for this match and Euro 2020 have been thrown into disarray, but the Under-21s are still full of talent and should have enough to record a victory over Lithuania on Tuesday night.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Morocco vs. Ghana (Tuesday, 8.00pm)

Morocco take on Ghana in an international friendly match on Tuesday.

The two countries last met at the Africa Cup of Nations in 2008, with Ghana winning 2-0 to progress to the quarter-finals that year.

We say: Morocco 2-1 Ghana


Both teams have plenty of individual talent, but Morocco look to be a stronger unit at present with greater strength in depth to call upon.

As such, given their current unbeaten run, we expect the Atlas Lions to narrowly come out on top.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

France vs. Bulgaria (Tuesday, 8.10pm)

France finalise their preparations for Euro 2020 on Tuesday when they welcome Bulgaria to the Stade de France for a friendly encounter.

Les Bleus eased past 10-man Wales 3-0 in their most recent battle, while Bulgaria's misfortune on the road continued with a 1-0 defeat to Russia last time out.

We say: France 4-0 Bulgaria


Bulgaria are not the easiest team in Europe to break down, but their toothless attack will hinder any chances of them springing a surprise against Deschamps's Euro 2020 favourites.

With their ranks now bolstered by the returns of the Champions League-winning crop - as well as nearly a full week's worth of rest in between matches - France should have no problem easing to a straightforward success.

Our tipster partners are predicting a draw.
