Tip Italy - France
It's World Cup year and France don't look like challenging for the title later in 2019. They have only won one of their four games so far and that was a home win over Scotland. Other games have been lost including a heavy loss at Twickenham. Their last game was a 26-14 defeat in Dublin with all their points being scored right at the end of the game. They continue to frustrate their supporters and the best they can do in this championship is finish fourth.
Italy have again lost all their games and have a -77 points difference. They have already won the wooden spoon for finishing last in the championship but the calls for relegation in the Six Nations Championship are falling on deaf ears. So we'll just have five teams and another one that always loses. Could that change this weekend? Italy have lost their last six games against France. Another defeat looks on the cards here, so back France for the win.
Key points Italy - France
France have won their last six games against Italy
Italy have lost all four of their games in this year's Six Nations Championship.

Conclusion Italy - France
France have a lot of work to do if they want to have a good World Cup later this year. They have only won one of their games in this year's Six Nations but must surely get a second win in Rome. Italy have again lost all their games and were heavily beaten by England in their last game. The tip here is for a France victory.
