Who Will Win?

On Sunday 25th February, France will host Italy at Stade Pierre Mauroy in the Six Nations Championship.

France will enter this clash with Italy as overwhelming favourites. After all, they recently defeated the Azzurri 60-7 at the Rugby World Cup. Meanwhile, Italy endured another bruising Rugby World Cup campaign, where they were heavily defeated by both France and New Zealand. However, they’re now entering a new era and will be looking to spring an almighty surprise.

Think you know which way France vs Italy will go? Vote in our poll.

Head-to-Head

Historic data shows that France are the favourites for this clash. After all, Les Bleus have won all of the last five meetings between the two teams. During this time, they’ve averaged 42 points per game. Meanwhile, Italy have only averaged 11.

Team Form

France will enter this game with a point to prove. After all, they failed to defend their Six Nations title last year. They then followed this up with a disappointing quarter-final defeat at the Rugby World Cup. As a result, the 2024 Six Nations is a great chance for France to prove that they remain the best side in the northern hemisphere.

Meanwhile, Italy once again failed to get past the pool stage of the Rugby World Cup. Although they did beat both Namibia and Uruguay, they were demolished by France and New Zealand, who defeated the Azzurri 60-7 and 96-17 respectively.

Below our team form guide, you can see in-depth stats about how the two sides have performed in their last five games, including stats about the number of tries they’ve scored, their overall points difference and the number of times they’ve scored the first try. We’ve also detailed how often each team has scored the first points in a game and how often they’ve won the race to 10 points.

Player Head-to-Head

France vs Italy matches can be high-scoring affairs. With this in mind, we’ve taken a look at how Thomas Ramos and Tommaso Allan have performed in recent matches between the two countries.

Will either of these players dictate the course of this game? It’s very possible that one will be the star of the show.
