Les Bleus opened their Euro 2020 campaign with a 1-0 win against Germany, going ahead through an own goal.

France were held to a 1-1 draw against Hungary in Budapest. Antoine Griezmann equalised in the 66th minute but they couldn’t find a winner against a disciplined opponent.

France Team News

Goalkeepers: Hugo Lloris (Captain), Steve Mandanda, Mike Maignan
Defenders: Benjamin Pavard, Presnel Kimpembe, Raphaël Varane, Clément Lenglet, Kurt Zouma, Lucas Digne, Lucas Hernandez, Léo Dubois, Jules Koundé
Midfielders: Paul Pogba, Thomas Lemar, Corentin Tolisso, N'Golo Kanté, Adrien Rabiot, Moussa Sissoko
Forwards: Antoine Griezmann, Olivier Giroud, Kylian Mbappé, Ousmane Dembélé, Karim Benzema, Kingsley Coman, Wissam Ben Yedder, Marcus Thuram

Lucas Digne is injured and Lucas Hernandez is doubtful which means Leo Dubois should start at left-back.

Corentin Tolisso is likely to make way for Adrien Rabiot in midfield and Benjamin Pavard should replace Jules Kounde at right-back.

Ousmane Dembele suffered a knee injury against Hungary and is out for the rest of the tournament.

Switzerland Form 

Switzerland are undefeated in nine of their last 10 matches and have won seven of their last nine games.

Vladimir Petković’s side drew 1-1 against Wales in their opening match at Euro 2020. They dominated the game with 64% possession and 18-9 shots.

The Swiss fell to a 3-0 defeat against Italy in a closer match than the score suggests.

Switzerland beat Turkey 3-1 in their final group game. Steven Zuber registered three assists, the first for Haris Seferovic and the next two for Xherdan Shaqiri.

Switzerland Team News

Goalkeepers: Yann Sommer, Jonas Omlin, Yvon Mvogo
Defenders: Fabian Schar, Ricardo Rodriguez, Manuel Akanji, Nico Elvedi, Jordan Lotomba, Becir Omeragic, Silvan Widmer, Loris Benito, Kevin Mbabu, Eray Comert

Vladimir Petković is unlikely to make many changes here.

Steven Zuber should continue at left wing-back with Kevin Mbabu competing with Silvan Widmer for a starting spot at right wing-back.
