Nations League preview
Fatigue has plagued every side in this post-season series of Nations League games and perhaps no side have looked as strained as France.
The tournament’s holders were beaten 2-1 by Denmark in the first game before being sidelined after two 1-1 draws against Croatia and Austria if he doesn’t take all three points from that second leg against Luka Modric and co.
Didier Deschamps has struggled like this before, his side drew five straight games last summer and questions about his coaching have lingered given the talent at his disposal.
With fatigue in his squad, Deschamps could give Christopher Nkunku, who was substituted on twice on either side of his start in the second leg, another start.
The RB Leipzig striker is yet to find the net for his nation in five caps but is branded a solid chance here as he will be fresher than some of his rivals when it comes to attacking points.
Nkunku has scored 35 goals in all competitions this season and could break his international candid against Croatia.
In the same Nations League group, Austria travel to Denmark, with the two sides surprisingly top of the table.
The Danes beat France and Austria before losing 1-0 to Croatia.
In contrast, Austria clinched a big result of their own as they almost took all three points from their last clash with Les Bleus, only an 83rd-minute equalizer from Kylian Mbappe saved the French from blushing.
Ralf Rangnick seems to have quickly instilled his style of play into the team and four points from the first three games is a good return in a difficult group.
Denmark’s reputation as one of the best sides in international football was slightly damaged by Croatia, and the away team was able to benefit from it.
Both teams have suffered injuries, so a strong rotation in this duel cannot be ruled out.
Austria have been involved in a number of entertaining events of late, with both sides scoring in six of their last seven games and the same is expected in Copenhagen.
Denmark have been strong lately but if Austria can repeat their performance against France they should find the goalscoring list as well.
All in all, tired legs can produce errors on either side and players will be happy with the rest after this game.
