Prediction for France’s Olympic Football Match Against South Africa
It’s possible for France U23 to play well because they have a stronger team. It will be crucial for players like Andre-Pierre Gignac and Florian Thauvin to perform at a high level against South Africa.
It’s concerning that they lost their first game, against Mexico U23, because they need to win their next two matches at all costs to make the playoffs.
Half of South Africa’s team was ravaged by a coronavirus infection before their match against Japan’s U23 team, which may have contributed to their subpar performance. If South Africa wants to make the quarter-finals, they’ll need to put out an outstanding performance.
