Following a massive 1-0 victory at Bulgaria on Saturday, France are on the brink of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup. The only thing that stands between Les Bleus and a trip to Russia next summer is a win at home against Belarus, who have tallied just five points through nine matches and are 0-0-4 away from home during qualifying.

UEFA Group A World Cup Qualifying Table
It’s simple for France: Win, and they’re into the World Cup.
And that seems like a likely result considering that during this stage of qualifying, France has three victories in three matches at the Stade de France and has out-scored opponents 10-2 in those matches, while Belarus has been out-scored 10-1 away from home.
Assuming France gets it done, Sweden would advance to the second-round playoff unless Netherlands can somehow beat the Swedes by seven or more goals on Tuesday.
