PARIS, July 27 (Reuters) - Financial bookmakers expect to see the leading European benchmark indexes falling on Wednesday, set to lose ground for the third consecutive session as the deadlock over lifting the U.S. debt ceiling rattled investors.

Financial spreadbetters expected Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE to open 10 points lower, or down 0.2 percent, Germany's DAX .GDAXI to open 17 to 19 points lower, or down as much as 0.3 percent, and France's CAC-40 .FCHI to open 6 to 8 points lower, or down as much as 0.2 percent.
