Team News

Austria
France
  • Philipp Lienhart remains a doubt due to a fever, but David Alaba returned for the defeat to Denmark and should start.
  • Ralf Rangnick may revert to a three-man defence when they host France on Friday.
  • Hugo Lloris should return between the sticks, while N'Golo Kante is also set to start in midfield.
  • Kylian Mbappe remains a doubt, but will start if fit alongside Karim Benzema, with the returning Antoine Griezmann featuring in support.

Prediction

  • Austria were unable to follow up their 3-0 win over Croatia with another three points as they fell to a 2-1 home loss to Denmark. They now take on France for the first time since 2009.
  • France have made a poor start to their Nations League campaign, following up their surprise 2-1 loss to Denmark with a 1-1 draw with Croatia. With a number of key men returning, however, the World Champions will fancy their chances of a first victory.
  • Austria are unlikely to roll over and accept defeat, but France should get their first win of the campaign on the board.
