Friday, the 6th of October continues the last week of the pool stage of the Rugby World Cup 2023. In this Pool A match, we will see France v Italy. Kick-off at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais will be at 8 p.m.

Our referee will be Karl Dickson, who will be accompanied by Luke Pearce and Craig Evans. Down in the dungeon will be Marius Jonker in the role of TMO.

Les Bleus and gli Azzurri have competed against each other a total of 47 times. The World Cup hosts have won 44 of those occasions and their neighbours have won three. With the good form in which France find themselves, few fans will think the Italians capable of a miraculous upset, but what should we expect? I think we best get on with my France v Italy prediction.

🔍 France v Italy Winner Prediction

How can we compare the second team in the world rankings to the one in 11th? Hardly any comparison can be drawn. The Rugby World Cup hosts have smashed three games in their campaign so far, against New Zealand, 27-13, against Uruguay, 27-12, and against Namibia, 96-0. Italy have not mustered the same success. Despite coming up the cream of the crop against Namibia and against Uruguay, 52-8 and 38-17 respectively, gli Azzurri were thumped by New Zealand in their last game, 96-17.

Worse still, the Italian squad is carrying a lot of injuries: Danilo Fischetti, Dino Lamb, and Giacomo Nicotera are all out for this match. Whilst the French also have Antoine Dupont as a big name out for this match, their strength in depth should still shine.

I doubt France will bother putting out their full arsenal in this battle, but even still, I believe the home crowd will be singing La Marseillaise to the tune of 30 points. It would take something unprecedented in RWC history for France not to win this one.
