Austria and France are set to clash in a highly anticipated Group D match of the European Championship at the Merkur Spiel-Arena in Dusseldorf.

Both teams come into this game with strong form and high expectations. Here, we look at the likely starting lineups for both teams and what fans can expect from this encounter.

Austria's Predicted Lineup

Austria will be without some key players due to injuries. David Alaba and Sasa Kalajdzic are notable absentees, both sidelined with ACL injuries.

Xaver Schlager also misses out due to a knee problem. Despite these setbacks, Austria has a well-rounded squad ready to compete.

Coach Ralf Rangnick is expected to deploy a 4-2-3-1 formation. Michael Gregoritsch, who has been in fine form, is set to lead the line in place of the experienced Marko Arnautovic.

Expected XI

Goalkeeper: Patrick Pentz

Defenders: Stefan Posch, Kevin Danso, Maximilian Wober, Phillipp Mwene

Midfielders: Nicolas Seiwald, Florian Grillitsch, Konrad Laimer, Marcel Sabitzer, Christoph Baumgartner

Forward: Michael Gregoritsch

France's Predicted Lineup

France boasts a star-studded squad, though they have faced some issues with player fitness. Kingsley Coman has recovered from illness, and Kylian Mbappe is expected to play despite a minor knee knock.

However, Aurelien Tchouameni is still recovering from a foot injury, likely paving the way for Adrien Rabiot to start.

Didier Deschamps is likely to field a 4-3-3 formation, with a potent attacking trio and a solid midfield. N'Golo Kante's return adds significant strength to the midfield.

Expected XI

Goalkeeper: Mike Maignan

Defenders: Jules Kounde, William Saliba, Dayot Upamecano, Theo Hernandez

Midfielders: N'Golo Kante, Adrien Rabiot

Forwards: Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele, Kylian Mbappe, Marcus Thuram
