Second match of the group stage for the Blues! After having come to the end of Germany, not without suffering, Didier Deschamps’ men face a rival who will a priori pose a little less problems this afternoon on the side of Budapest, where sacred heat is expected. The Hungarians lost 3-0 to Portugal in their first match, even if the score does not necessarily reflect the face of the meeting, during which the Magyars were anything but ridiculous …
And the week was fairly quiet for the Habs, spared from physical glitches, while the few emerging controversies around Giroud and Mbappé quickly evaporated. What to prepare this duel in the best conditions. For today’s meeting, Didier Deschamps should also renew the same team that won against the Mannschaft.
The same eleven as against Germany
The national coach will align Hugo Lloris in the cages, still protected by the central Varane-Kimpembe hinge. On the sides, Pavard and Hernandez will secure the flanks and support their more offensive players. The midfield will be composed of Paul Pogba, Ngolo Kanté and Adrien Rabiot, while in front, Kylian Mbappé and Antoine Griezmann will play in support of Karim Benzema.
Opposite, Marco Rossi will give the cages to Gulacsi, with a three-way defense made up of Szalai, Orban and Kecskes in front of him. Holender and Botka will be used as pistons, with Nagy, Varga and Kleinheisler in the midfield. In front, the offensive references Szalai and Sallai will try to undermine the tricolor hinge.
