The France team challenges Hungary and its fiery supporters in Budapest on Saturday (3 p.m.), hoping to qualify for the round of 16.
After having firmly dismissed Germany (1-0), another scarecrow of this very tough group F, France tackles Hungary on Saturday, the 37th nation in the world, an opponent who promises to be less tough. To get out of the group of death and qualify for the round of 16, a second consecutive victory is essential.
But it will be for the Blues to tame as much the context, a hostile and noisy Puskas Arena, with up to 65,000 spectators among the most fervent of the tournament, as the stifling heat which prevails at this time of the year in the region. .
The meeting will be broadcast on television on TF1 and beIN Sports 1 from 3 p.m., and on the radio on our antenna, RMC being the only radio station to comment on all Euro matches. You will also be able to follow the meeting live with commentary on the RMC site and application.
An identical starting eleven?
For the Hungarians, a defeat would be almost eliminatory: they would then have to defeat Germany and hope to pass among the best third, despite their goal difference weighed down by the 3-0 conceded against Portugal.
For the coach Didier Deschamps, the reflection will be based mainly on a dilemma: keep the same starting eleven as against Germany, even if it means wearing down his typical team? Or give rest to certain executives, at the risk of leaving a few gaps in the group’s Petit Poucet? The training of the day before gave little indication of the intentions of the coach.
But except surprise, or last minute injury, Didier Deschamps should align in Budapest the same eleven as the one who won against Germany: Lloris – Pavard, Varane, Kimpembe, Hernandez – Kanté, Rabiot, Pogba – Griezmann, Mbappé , Benzema.
