France and Bulgaria meet at the Stade de France on Friday for a World Cup qualifier ahead of the 2018 tournament in Russia.

France got off to a rough start, drawing with Belarus to open qualification, and could use three points, especially given their wealth of talent. This is the first match between these two countries since Euro 1996. With home-field advantage, Les Bleus figure to come away with a win, but need a goal-scorer to step up and provide some consistency as the matches get tougher from here.
