    Match Preview

    France look the most likely side to top Group E and will be hoping to live up to their favourites tag in the opening game against Honduras.

    Although France's qualification for the 2014 World Cup was far from straightforward, they will be aiming to win Group E and Honduras look to have a tough opening game. Les Bleus needed to go through the play-offs to make it to Brazil, while Honduras scraped through in the last remaining place in the fourth and final round of CONCACAF qualification.

    The teams know little about one another having never faced each other before but France boast the better form going into the game. The 1998 World Cup champions have lost just one in the last six, while La Bicolor's form is patchy at best with just two wins in their last six outings.

    Prolific striker Karim Benzema is a leading candidate for goalscorer bets, but midfielder Franck Ribery is no stranger to finding the net and will be available to back at a bigger price. Should Honduras find the net then striker Jerry Bengtson could well be the scorer, but set pieces may be their best chance and towering centre-back Víctor Bernárdez may also be a good shout.
