France are currently circling the relegation drain in Group A1 of the Nations League and can no longer qualify for the tournament’s knockouts. A win on Thursday, though, would take Didier Deschamps’ men off the foot of the table and above Austria, who face the serious prospect of dropping down to League B if they fail to get a result at the Stade de France later this week.

Les Bleus are currently winless in the 2022/23 Nations League after four matches, drawing to Croatia and Austria, as well as losing to the former and Denmark. For one reason or another things just haven’t clicked for the 2014 World Cup winners, but Deschamps is an experienced coach with an elite squad, so he has all the tools to turn things around.

Austria’s sole win this Nations League campaign has come against Croatia, with Ralf Rangnick overseeing a 3-0 win back in June, but a double defeat to Denmark has left the nation third in the Group A1 table. The former Manchester United interim boss did manage a 1-1 draw with France on home soil, so knows he has the capacity to upset the European heavyweights.

Kylian Mbappe has played like a man possessed this season, and will be looking to take that form into this contest. In fact, no player has scored more goals from open play in Ligue 1 this season than Mbappe (six). The metric also rings true for the Champions League (three), with the France superstar sitting level for open-play goals in 2022/23 alongside usual suspects Erling Haaland and Robert Lewandowski. As for who might set up Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele is currently leading the way for chances created in La Liga (18), underlining his continued renaissance to the pinnacle of the sport after an injury-laden plateau at the Camp Nou.
