Marked by its surprise elimination in the round of 16 of the Euro, the French football team has only been a shadow of itself for several matches. Uninspired in attack and feverish in defense, Didier Deschamps’ men have a series of poor performances (5 consecutive draws). The Blues find themselves under pressure when they cross swords with a Finland that is not very flamboyant but solid and sure of its strength (8:45 p.m., live on TF1).

However, the accounting situation is not (yet) catastrophic, the tricolors still occupying the peaks of group D (9 points). However, any result other than a win would put them in a precarious position, with Finland (5 points) and Bosnia (2 points) two games short. “It is a less happy period obviously because of the results. We know what we have to do tomorrow to remain masters of our destiny, and that requires a victory”, summarizes “DD”.

To renew with success, the French team can count on a surprising Aurélien Tchouaméni (2 selections). Since the start of the rally, the Monegasque neophyte has never ceased to impress with his volume of play and his technical accuracy. The long game and the ability of Paul Pogba to trigger from a distance are also weapons of choice to destabilize the Finnish bloc. The Mancunien, at the top of his art at the start of the season, however, offered a mixed performance against Bosnia-Herzegovina and Ukraine.

Above all, the spotlight will be on Karim Benzema, back on the land of his first successes. A pure product of the Olympique Lyonnais training center, the Real Madrid striker finds his former audience this Tuesday for the first time since his departure. There is no doubt that “KB19” will be keen to shine in a sold-out Groupama Stadium (57,000 spectators expected). “Going back to my city, where it all started for me, will be special,” he also told TF1. It will take that to restart an attack at half mast – with only 2 goals in 2 games – and orphan of an injured Kylian Mbappé.

Opposite, Finland does not present itself as an expiatory victim. Teemu Pukki’s teammates dream of a first World Cup, just months after qualifying for their first Euro. They clearly have the weapons to embarrass the Blues they had also beaten in November 2020 (0-2). Their defensive solidity, their ability to close spaces well and to spring up quickly appear to be so many threats for the men in Blue.

🏟️️ Around 57,000 spectators are expected this Tuesday at the Groupama Stadium in Lyon. The Blues will therefore, once again, play in a sold-out stadium.

Trained at Olympique Lyonnais, Karim Benzema is playing his first match on Tuesday in front of his former home crowd since leaving Real Madrid. A particularly important match therefore for the French striker who has not scored in the Blues since his double against Switzerland. “Going back to my city, where it all started for me, it will be special,” he said at the microphone of TF1.

📺 Before their meeting against Finland, the Blues had a last collective training session on Monday at Groupama Stadium.
