Preview Austria vs France 17.06.2024

The last match of Monday from Euro 2024, will be played from 22:00, at the Merkur Spiel-Arena stadium in Düsseldorf, where the Austrian national team will face the French national team in group D. This group D also includes Poland and The Netherlands, being also a very balanced group. The two teams met only once in the final tournaments, at the 1982 World Cup, where France won 1-0. The most recent confrontations between Austria and France took place in the UEFA Nations League where the tour match in Austria ended in a tie, score 1-1, then in the return match, France won 2-0 at home. Two of France's three goals were scored by Kylian Mbappe.

Austria has only three participations in Euro 2024, the most recent being the one in 2008 when it was also the host of the final tournament together with Switzerland, but stopped in the groups. At the next final tournament, Euro 2012, Austria did not qualify, but returned to Euro 2016, where it also stopped in the groups, and the best performance was at the previous edition, where it was eliminated in the round of 16 by Italy, the winner of the final tournament, who won with emotions after extra time, score 2-1. Austria had some very good qualifications, finishing in 2nd place in group F, after Belgium, in the eight games, having six victories, one draw and one defeat. Austria recorded a victory and a draw in the two friendly games played before the final tournament, 2-1 with Serbia and 1-1 with Switzerland.

Austria possible line-up: Pentz; Posch, Lienhart, Trauner, Mwene; Laimer, Seiwald; Wimmer, Sabitzer, Baumgartner; Gregoritsch

France is always one of the favorites to win the final tournaments and it does not discount even in this final tournament. France has won only two European trophies so far, at Euro 1984 and at Euro 2000, being close to the trophy at Euro 2016 as well, where it lost the final 1-0 to Portugal, although it started as a big favorite. In the preliminaries, France won group B, and in the eight matches it recorded only one draw, in the very last match of the group, a score of 2-2 with Greece away. France had the best attack in the preliminaries with 29 goals and a very good defense, with only three goals conceded. France scheduled two easy friendly matches before the final tournament, managing a light victory, 3-0 against Luxembourg but also a surprising draw, 0-0 with Canada.

France possible line-up: Maignan; Koundé, Saliba, Upamecano, Hernández; Griezmann, Kanté, Rabiot; Dembélé, Thuram, Mbappé
