Scotland vs France Predictions


France are favourites but Scotland have been a bogey side of the French for the last few seasons. This will be a tight contest especially at Murrayfield.

It is worth backing Scotland in the +7 handicap market while an upset victory could be on the cards.

  • Scotland have won 3 of their last 4 matches against France.
  • Scotland and France have seen 11 or less points between them in the last 4 matches.
  • France have won their last 2 matches.

Head to Head


Scotland have won three of their last four matches against France. In the 2021 Six Nations, the Scots upset the odds, beating France 27-23 at the Stade de France.

Scotland Form


Scotland are fourth on the Six Nations table with one win and one defeat in the opening two matches. 

On the opening weekend Scotland beat England 20-17 at Murrayfield. It was a contest they looked like losing but a superb final 20 minutes saw them get over the line.

Against Wales the scoreline was exactly the same, just the other way around as Wales won 20-17 at home. It was a disappointing result for the Scots who could really put in a title challenge this season. This now becomes a must-win if they still harbour hopes.

Scotland Injuries & Team News


Gregor Townsend has made some changes to his squad. James Lang, Ollie Smith, Oli Kebble, Simon Berghan, Kiran McDonald and Marshall Sykes have all been called up into the squad.

France Form


France were favourites to win the Six Nations title this year and their opening two results have just proven why. 

Against Italy in round one France were a bit slow to start but ended up winning 37-10 at home. Their toughest test followed when Ireland visited but Les Bleus got over the line with a 30-24 victory.

While the Ireland game was believed by many to be the decider, it was a home fixture for the French. They now come up against a less fancied Scotland side but nevertheless a Scotland side that have enjoyed success against France in recent seasons.

France Injuries & Team News


Fabien Galthie has made just one change from the side who beat Ireland. Jonathan Danty comes in at inside centre with Yoram Moefana moves to the wing. The injured Gabin Villiere misses out.
