France will clash heads with Morocco at the Al Bayt Stadium on Wednesday night, hoping to pick up a positive result and secure a place in the finals of the World Cup campaign. Didier Deschamps’ men will be coming into the match on the back of a 2-1 win against England, whereas Walid Regragui’s men recorded a surprising 1-0 victory over Portugal in the semi-finals.
Didier Deschamps will probably opt for the 4-2-3-1 formation; however, he is expected to make minimal changes for the upcoming clash.
4-2-3-1 France Predicted Lineup Vs Morocco
Hugo Lloris is expected to start in goal for the upcoming encounter. The Tottenham shot-stopper would be looking to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Wednesday.
Raphael Varane will continue to form the centre-half partnership with Dayot Upamecano at the heart of France’s backline.
Jules Kounde is a guaranteed starter at the right back position, whereas Theo Hernandez will fill in on the other flank as the left back. The duo would be expected to stretch their side’s attack on either flank.
Aurelien Tchouameni and Adrien Rabiot will slot in as the central midfielders, looking to put up a strong performance and dominate the midfield proceedings against Morocco. Antoine Griezmann will slot in as the attacking midfielder.
Eduardo Camavinga will have to settle for a place on the bench but he might be called off the bench in the latter stages of the match if needed.
Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele will take up the wide positions, playing on the left and right wing respectively.
Olivier Giroud is expected to lead the line for his side against Morocco. The 36-year-old striker would hope to get his name on the scoresheet when he faces off against the Morocco defence that has conceded just one goal in their last five matches.
