Tip Scotland - France
France top the Six Nations table and are only two wins from the Grand Slam. They travel to Scotland looking to make it four wins out of four as they chase their first title since 2010. Their new coach has worked wonders as he starts to prepare his side with the aim of a big performance at the 2023 World Cup that they host. This Six Nations campaign began witht them getting home wins against England and Italy. Strong first half performances clinched the points in both of those games with their opponents closing down on them in the second half. A more consistent performance came when they went to Wales and came away winners.
Now they face an away game against Scotland and the last four games against them have been shared. Scotland have won one and lost two of their three games played so far. They lost to Ireland away and then lost the Calcutta Cup when losing at home to England. Their last game saw them get off the mark as they won away in Italy without conceding. Scotland have only conceded 32 points in their three games but scored only 35. This will be a struggle for them against France, even if they are playing at home. Their home form in the Six Nations hasn't been that good in recent times. France will do their best to make Scotland commit as many mistakes as they can and then take advantage. Go for an away win that will leave France just one match away from their first title and Grand Slam since 2010.
Key points Scotland - France
France have won all three of their matches played in this year's Six Nations.
Scotland have lost two of their three matches in the 2020 Six Nations.
Scotland have lost three of their last four home games in the Six Nations.
Conclusion Scotland - France
France are edging their way towards their first Six Nations title since 2010. There were hopes of improvement under their new coaching team but few predicted they'd win their first three matches and top the table. Scotland have had just one win so far this campaign and have already lost to both Ireland and England. Home form at Muirfield is shaky with three losses in the last four Six Nations matches. Go for France to get the win here.
