This should be a fascinating second rematch of the 2018 World Cup final after France produced a duplicate 4-2 win in the pair's last meeting in September.
France travels to Zagreb to face Croatia in the UEFA Nations League looking to extend their unbeaten streak in Group A3. Croatia remains in contention for top spot after a 2-1 win over Sweden while France arrives off the back of a 0-0 draw with European champions Portugal.
Here is how we expect the sides to line up.
🇭🇷 Croatia (4-2-3-1):
Livaković; Jedvaj, Lovren, Vida, Barisić; Kovačić, Modrić; Vlasić, Pašalić, Perisić; Petković
🗞 News: The Croats will be without midfield dynamo Marcelo Brozović who serves a one-match suspension, with Atalanta schemer Mario Pašalić set to replace the Inter star in a slightly modified formation. Tin Jedvaj, Borna Barisić and Domagoj Vida are pushing for starts in the back four.
Lloris; Pavard, Kimpembe, Varane, Digne; Sissoko, Kanté, Pogba; Griezmann; Martial, Mbappé
🗞 News: Having started the last two matches, new France centurion Olivier Giroud could drop out of the side to accommodate some fresher legs. Manager Deschamps made two changes against Portugal, so we could see the likes of Lucas Digne, Moussa Sissoko and Anthony Martial drafted into the XI.
