France vs Poland Preview

  • Tournament: Euro 2024
  • Date: Tuesday, June 25
  • Kick-off Time: 05:00 pm GMT
  • Venue: Signal Iduna Park, Germany

France will face Poland in a crucial Euro 2024 group-stage match in Dortmund. Les Blues aim to finish as the winners of Group D needing a victory over already-eliminated Poland to secure the top spot.

France’s goalless draw with the Netherlands has almost assured their place in the last 16 but they must still perform against Poland to clinch the group lead. If the Netherlands defeats Austria the top spot will be determined by goal difference, making a win against Poland essential for Didier Deschamps’ team.

On the other hand, Poland has had a tough tournament. Back-to-back losses have ended their hopes of advancing and they are now playing for pride in their final match. Poland started promisingly against the Netherlands taking an early lead through Adam Buksa. However, they couldn’t hold on and eventually lost as the Netherlands scored twice.

Poland looks forward to the return of striker Robert Lewandowski who missed the last match due to injury. They hope his presence can boost their performance in what will be their final appearance in Euro 2024 before heading home.

This match is a must-watch as France aims to confirm their dominance in Group D while Poland seeks a positive end to their campaign.

France will likely welcome back Kylian Mbappé to the starting lineup against Poland. Mbappé was an unused substitute against the Netherlands as he was recovering from a broken nose, and is expected to play with a protective mask. French footballer Aurelien Tchouameni stated in his recent interview that Mbappe would like to play without a mask against Poland but doctors will not allow him.

This could lead to Adrien Rabiot moving into a deeper midfield role possibly replacing Aurélien Tchouaméni. Both Mbappé and Ousmane Dembélé are a booking away from suspension.

Lewandowski will be back in the Poland lineup

Poland is set to have star striker Robert Lewandowski back in the starting lineup. Lewandowski who made his first tournament appearance off the bench against Austria should start. This might push Krzysztof Piatek who scored in the last match to the bench. Additionally Bartosz Salamon is doubtful due to an ankle injury.

Both teams are making key adjustments as they prepare for this crucial encounter in Dortmund.

France vs Poland Prediction

France have struggled to find their attacking rhythm in Euro 2024 managing only one goal so far which came from an own goal by Maximilian Wober. However, they have faced strong opponents in Austria and the Netherlands.

With Poland already eliminated and playing for pride France should find this match a more manageable challenge. The potential return of Kylian Mbappe to the lineup or substitution bench could give them the boost they need.
