Crowned in the previous edition, France is putting its title back into play! As part of the first day of Group 1 of the League of Nations, the Blues welcome Denmark this Friday at 8:45 p.m. (a meeting to follow live with commentary). In a stadium in France, the scene of a fiasco during the Champions League final but announced to be sold out, the men of Didier Deschamps, bereaved and absent for this meeting, will try to continue their series of invincibility and to launch their competition as well as possible.

Unbeaten since their premature elimination at the last Euro, France remains, in fact, on a series of nine games without defeat including a last resounding success against South Africa (5-0). Led by a Karim Benzema, crowned with his fifth Champions League, the Habs intend to confirm their status as favorites, just a few months from the next World Cup. For its part, Denmark, although having recorded two defeats in the last three matches against Scotland (0-2) then against the Netherlands (2-4), arrives with guarantees. On the strength of their successful Euro, the Danes wish to confirm their good form.

The Blues with Benzema and Mbappé!

For this meeting, Guy Stéphan, present on the French bench to replace Didier Deschamps, should therefore align a 3-4-1-2. Present in goal, Hugo Lloris could be protected by a three-man defense composed of Koundé, Varane, Lucas Hernandez. In midfield and well helped by Coman and Théo Hernandez, in piston roles, Tchouaméni and Kanté are expected to start the game. Finally on the front of the attack, Griezmann should support Mbappé and Benzema, aligned together for the first time since the soap opera around the extension of the Bondynois.

Opposite, Kasper Hjulmand, determined to thwart the tricolor plans, would opt for a more than promising 4-3-3. In the Danish cages, Schmeichel should be protected by a defensive quartet consisting of Mæhle, Vestergaard, Andersen and Kristensen. In midfield, Højbjerg, Spurs midfielder, could start alongside Delaney and Eriksen, author of an incredible comeback from Brentford. In front, it is Poulsen who is announced to start with Damsgaard and Skov Olsen.
