FRA vs UKR Dream11 Prediction: France are looking to prep up for their upcoming UEFA Nations League matches as they lock horns with Ukraine in an international friendly on Wednesday. France extended their excellent run of results with back-to-back wins against Sweden and Croatia on their return to action in September and they now go into this friendly match with 12 victories from their last 14 outings. The UEFA Nations League double-header Portugal and Croatia will surely be the priority for Didier Deschamps, but he has named a strong 24-man squad which should contain enough quality to win this match against a much-weakened Ukraine team. The visitors will have to do without all of their Shakhtar Donetsk contingent due to positive COVID-19 cases at the club, while they are also missing a number of players due to injury.
Date: 8 October, Thursday
Time: 12:40 am IST
Match: France vs Ukraine
Place: Stade de France, Paris
Head-to-head (Last 5 Matches)
France wins: 3
Ukraine wins: 1
France Team News
France have a chance to sharpen their tools ahead of tricky fixtures against Portugal and Croatia, a month after the latter managed to push them in Paris. That 4-2 victory extended France’s undefeated streak to nine matches, although Deschamps’s side have been far from perfect during that period of success. Their only wins by two goals or more have come against Andorra and Albania, and the recent set of results highlights that Deschamps has plenty of work ahead of him in preparation for Euro 2020.
Injury update, unavailability
France don’t have a major injury or suspension concern before coming into this game against Ukraine.
