France will look to put their disappointing form of late behind them as they bid to defend the World Cup crown by taking on Australia in their opening match. The Group D contest on Tuesday night will be an interesting watch for various reasons. Ideally, France should be the favourites if their squad quality and depth are taken into consideration. However, their form of late and injuries to key players would offer enough encouragement for Australia of pulling out a shocker in their opening group match.

At the Euro 2020 last year, France suffered a shock last-16 exit and followed it up with a poor outing in the latest UEFA Nations League. Placed in League A Group 1, the French nation narrowly avoided finishing at the bottom spot after managing just five points from six games. They managed only one win in the group stage and are heading into the World Cup on the back of losing their last game 2-0 to Denmark. On the other hand, Australia are going into this competition with a decent run on their side. They defeated New Zealand twice in September, however, the task of producing an upset win against France will be an extremely difficult one.

Possible Lineups

The defending champions are plagued by injuries heading into the World Cup opener. Karim Benzema was the latest big star to pull out of the squad for France. Fresh from winning the Ballon d’Or winner, Benzema’s absence will be a big blow for them. They are also without Christopher Nkunku and Presnel Kimpembe, while the fitness situation of Raphael Varane is not totally clear. Besides, they headed into the tournament without their main midfielders in Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante. Meanwhile, Australia are sweating over the fitness situation of forward Martin Boyle. It remains unlikely that he will play any part on Tuesday.

France possible line-up: Lloris, Pavard, Upamecano, Saliba, Lucas Hernandez, Tchouameni, Fofana, Dembele, Griezmann, Mbappe, Giroud

Australia possible line-up: Ryan, Atkinson, Rowles, Wright, Behich, Hrustic, Mooy, Irvine, Leckie, Goodwin, Duke
