Austria vs France preview: ticket info, tv channel and team news

Posted by

France will kick off their Euro 2024 campaign against Ralf Rangnick’s Austria on Monday night in Düsseldorf with Didier Deschamps’ team regarded as the favourites by many fans and pundits before a ball was even kicked.


The French are one of the strongest football nations on the planet and the evidence is the European giants reaching the last two World Cup finals. Les Bleus also picked up the UEFA Nations League in 2021 and the last one missing for the current France team is the European Championship.

This will give Deschamps’ men a lot of motivation in Germany and it is hard to see them not winning the tournament as they are strong all over the pitch.

Austria is a good team to gauge just how good the French will be this summer as Rangnick’s men are no pushovers. Das Team finished second in their Euro 2024 qualifying group behind Belgium and arrive in Germany in good form.

Group D is a tough one at Euro 2024 with the Netherlands and Poland joining these two nations. Points will be valuable and it may be vital to get off to a good start, which both France and Austria plan to do.

Team news

Real Madrid’s Aurelien Tchouameni is set to miss the Austria match due to the foot injury that forced him to miss the Champions League final. Everyone else is expected to be ready in Deschamps’ team as it remains unknown if the French boss will select Arsenal’s William Saliba at the back.

Austria will be without some of their big names throughout the tournament as both David Alaba and Sasa Kalajdzic have fitness issues.
