France will look to extend their lead at the top of their group with a win over Finland when the two sides meet in the World Cup qualifiers this week. 

The two sides will meet on the 16th of November at 19:45 pm BST.

France are currently four points clear at the top of their group and they will be confident of picking up a win away from home this week. They have been quite impressive in their last few outings and the away fans will be expecting a comfortable win. 

The visitors are currently unbeaten in the World Cup qualifiers and they will look to add to that run here. 

Meanwhile, Finland are second in the group and they will be hoping to pull off a win in front of their own fans and reduce the deficit with France here. They have beaten Bosnia and Kazakhstan in their last two outings and the home side will fancy their chances here.

Finland vs France prediction

Finland have done well in the qualifiers but they are out of their depth against a team like France. The visitors have beaten teams like Spain and Belgium in their recent outings and they will be looking to grind out a comfortable win here. 

They managed to beat Finland 2-0 back in September and they are likely to win this week as well. 

Prediction: France to win.
