France will clash heads with Australia at the Al Janoub Stadium on Tuesday as they hope to kick off their 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign with a victory. The French national side suffered a 2-0 loss at the hands of Denmark in their last international outing, so they would be eager to put a much-improved performance in this midweek World Cup opener.

Didier Deschamps will set his side up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to name a strong first XI for this game. We can expect to see Olivier Giroud spearhead France’s attack up top in the injury absence of Karim Benzema.

4-2-3-1 France Predicted Lineup To Face Australia

Defence

Hugo Lloris will feature in between the sticks for Les Bleus as he hopes to secure a clean sheet versus the Aussies in midweek. Ibrahima Konate will function alongside Dayot Upamecano at the back as they focus on keeping the opposition at bay during the 90 minutes.

Benjamin Pavard will operate as the right-back while Lucas Hernandez hopes to catch the eye on the other side as the left-back. Deschamps will allow both of them to express themselves in the opponent’s half so that they can create some decent chances in the final third.

Raphael Varane will be available for selection on the bench as he provides cover for the defensive positions.

Midfield

Adrien Rabiot and Aurelien Tchouameni will anchor the midfield with conviction as they focus on dominating the game at the centre of the park. Both of them will also have to move the ball well if they want to create enough opportunities for Les Bleus to win this game.

The gifted trio of Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele will play just ahead of them as part of France’s attack. Both Mbappe and Dembele will be looking to get in behind the Australia backline and wreak havoc inside their penalty box.

Griezmann will have to carry most of the creative workload for his team in the opponent’s half.

Eduardo Camavinga will be named on the bench but might come on to influence the game in the second 45 minutes if needed.

Attack

Olivier Giroud will lead the charge for Les Bleus up top. The French striker has to find a way to cause a few problems for the Australia defenders in this midweek World Cup match.

Randal Kolo Muani will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he awaits his chance to impress in the latter stages of the game if France are in need of a goal.
