Chile, meanwhile, have qualified for the Copa America this summer and this will be their major tournament after missing out on the World Cup in 2022. They managed to secure a 3-0 win over Albania in their last game. The squad is currently under the leadership of Argentine manager Ricardo Gareca who will be keen to see some signs of progress before heading into Chile’s Copa America campaign in 2024.

The hosts head into the game with a disappointing 2-0 loss at the hands of Germany in their last international friendly. France have won eight of their last 11 games across competitions. We can expect the home side to make a rapid start and assert their dominance.

Chile, meanwhile, have struggled in recent times and managed just one win in seven international fixtures in 2023. Chile have secured their qualification for the Copa America and this will be their return to a major international tournament after missing out on the 2022 World Cup.

It is likely to be an easy affair for France, who have been in fine form despite their recent loss to Germany.

Predicted Score: France 2-0 Chile
