What happened in this fixture in 2018?

Here is Ben Coles’ report from last year’s game:

France ended their 343-day wait for a Test win by overcoming Italy at the Stade Velodrome, as second-half tries by Hugo Bonneval and Mathieu Bastareaud along with Maxime Machenaud’s 17-point haul paved the way for victory.

Attacking line-outs misfiring, dropped scoring passes; exceptional moments were of short supply in this laboured effort.

France, so wasteful despite a  catalogue of promising moments, cannot afford to be so frivolous with opportunities when Eddie Jones and England come to Paris in a fortnight. This was a bonus-point win for France that went begging, as the hosts scored three tries and yet should have had six or seven.
