Bulgaria vs France World Cup Qualifying UEFA Venue, Kick-off Time, Predicted Lineups

Mbappe 'won't save the day' for France

At minute 3, Juventus star Matuidi took a pass from Griezmann and booted the ball past Iliev into the net to give France a 1-0 lead. The game was however turned on its head for a second time after the break, with goals from Michy Batshuayi and Jan Vertonghen putting Belgium 3-2 up.

Greece could also finish second in the group as they trail Bosnia-Herzegovina by a point ahead of their trip to Cyprus.

After beating Hungary secured nine wins from nine, you'd forgive Switzerland for thinking they deserved to have wrapped up top-spot in the group.

They did win the reverse fixture 4-1 in October, but Bulgaria have won all four World Cup Qualifiers they have played at home in the group and still have a chance of qualifying for the World Cup as they trail France by five points.

The other early kickoff in that group saw qualifying rookies Gibraltar suffer yet another thrashing, loosing 6-0 at home to Estonia.

Sweden had applied the pressure with an 8-0 thumping of Luxembourg, who held France to a goalless draw in their last outing, earlier in the day.

The Netherlands grabbed a 3-1 win over Belarus at the Borisov Arena thanks to two late goals.

However, with Portugal's only loss having been away to the Swiss, Ronaldo and co have an opportunity to top the group if they can win the crunch clash between the pair in Lisbon on Tuesday. The Dutch can no longer top the group and would need to beat Sweden by seven goals when the two meet on Tuesday to finish second and have any hope of a playoff place.

Cristiano Ronaldo finally opened the scoring in the 63rd minute before André Silva secured the win in the 86th.

Trailing the Scandinavians by three points, only a massive victory over Sweden in Amsterdam next week will save the three-time World Cup runners-up.

Over in Group B, Portugal were toiling in Andorra, 0-0 at half-time.
