  • Venue: Stade de France

A disappointing start to the tournament has left defending champions France bottom of Group I with just two points and would be eager to record their first win on Thursday night. Their last match was in June, when they suffered their first ever defeat against Croatia. Given that it was their fifth consecutive Nations League match in which they failed to keep a clean sheet, it is unlikely that they will go without conceding a goal on Thursday.

Austria, on the other hand, started the season well with a 3-0 away win over Croatia, but have struggled to find their feet since then, with two defeats and a draw. Most recently, they lost 2-0 away to Denmark. With this being the only time in their last 10 Nations League games that they have failed to score, the likelihood of them scoring here is very high.

France vs Austria Betting Tips: BTTS

Despite the weak start to the competition, France goes into this match as favorites, having avoided defeat in each of their last four meetings with Austria.

However, the visitors have been exceptional in attack when playing in this competition, so expect them to score even if one goal won't prevent a defeat.

France would be without former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba who recently underwent surgery to fix his knee injury. The 29-year-old who has eleven goals in 91 international appearances isn’t expected to return to football action until after the World Cup.

He is joined in the hosts’ injury list by Presnel Kimpembe, Karim Benzema, Lucas Hernandez, and N'Golo Kante.

Milan striker who has started the season in form, netting four goals in Serie A is back in the squad after missing June’s fixture. The same can be said for Ousmane Dembélé who has registered two assists for FC Barcelona in LaLiga so far this season.

Former Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick would be able to use the services of Real Madrid defender David Alaba who was absent from the 2-0 defeat to Denmark back in June due to an injury.

Philipp Lienhart was also absent due to fever but would be available, so one of Danso and Gernot Trauner, who started that game in central defense, could make way here.
