Andriy Shevchenko brought the Ukranians' Euro 2012 campaign to light with 2 goals against Sweden to turn the game on its' head and win the host nation three points to put them top of the group. He is 35 years old, though, and might struggle to start another game so soon after the last one. Artem Milevsky will be on standby to play if the veteran cannot make it.
Dynamo Kiev centre-back pairing Mikhalik and Khacheridi got the nod at the heart of the Ukraine defence and will probably start again here.
No injury news for the Ukranians could well mean an unchanged lineup.
France will have been disappointed with their draw against England on Monday, but will have taken much from their performance, which saw them dominate possession as well as having the lions' share of the chances but only gaining a point.
They could well stick with the same line-up from that match, though reports from France suggest that Yann M'Vila, Marvin Martin and Jeremy Menez could all come into the side.
The latter of the trio is thought to be set to start ahead of Malouda, with Blanc keen to keep his squad fresh if they progress to the latter stages, as Clichy also starts.
Ukraine did extremely well to come from behind and then hold on to the lead against Sweden in their opening fixture, and now sit proudly at the top of the pile in Group D. They will know, however, that there is still plenty of work to be done given that they now face games against both France and England, but the home advantage will give them a boost once again.
France kept the ball very well against England but did not create much in the way of clear-cut goalscoring opportunities. Ribery, Nasri and Benzema all looked dangerous going forwards and whoever lines up are sure to be threatening once again, but they will need to be a little more clever in their build up play.
The French will dominate possession but will once again be made to work hard for their chances - Ukraine will be dogged in their approach with the home crowd spurring them on. However, while they had enough to overcome the Sweden, France are a different class and should overpower them, taking the three points and throwing the group wide open ahead of England's game against Sweden.
