Euro 2024: France to face difficult game against Austria

Euro 2024: France to face difficult game against Austria

Former World Cup winners in 2018 and current runners-up France will take on Austria in a tantalising game in prospect on Monday night with most bookmakers already tipping the Les Blues for a win. 

However, it will not be a stroll in the park for the French although the consensus is that if they take their chances and Austria gives them too much respect, it will be a good night for Didier Deschamps and his men.

Kylian Mbappe came down with a virus this week but is set to start tonight while Austria will call on Marcel Sabitzer in the absence of injured defender and substantive captain, David Alaba.

Also, Nicolas Seiwald is expected to start in the absence of Xaver Schlager.

In defence, Arsenal and Liverpool fans will be looking to find out if their players, William Saliba and Ibrahima Kanoute will be paired as central defenders - or the one that will play alongside Dayot Upamecano. 

Allnews.ng's prediction: France to edge Austria 3-2.
