Green knows that Les Bleus have one of the world's best scorers in Kylian Mbappé. The forward for Paris Saint-Germain has scored seven goals in seven matches for PSG so far this season, which ranks second in Ligue, behind only his teammate, Neymar. When these teams met on June 10 in Austria, Mbappé scored a late equalizer to earn the French a point. He has scored 27 goals in 57 career appearances for France.
He also is aware that Austria's Marko Arnautovic is on a goal-scoring tear. The 33-year-old forward for Bologna leads Serie A with six goals in seven games so far this season. He also has been involved in every goal Bologna have scored in Serie A, be it a goal or an assist.
Now, Green has taken a close look at the France vs. Austria match from all sides, and we can tell you he is taking the Under on the goal total.
