France will have the fresher legs when they meet Ireland. The French will enjoy three extra days of rest before the game which may be a big difference for the home team in this do or die matchup. In their last game, France was only able to draw against Switzerland. However, in Ireland’s last match they came out on top of Italy, whom they shutout 1-0. Ireland’s game was more recent and their travel schedule a little more hectic. Both factors could play a big role against a young French team which will likely try to capitalize and set a quick pace.
