As the Euro 2024 tournament kicks off, France led by star player Kylian Mbappe and coach Didier Deschamps will face Austria at the Düsseldorf Arena in a crucial clash on Monday.

France, a dominant force in football, is vying for European Championship success after two decades, with Didier Deschamps aiming to secure a victory as both player and coach.

The last encounter between the two teams happened in the UEFA Nations League in 2022, where France emerged victorious with goals from Mbappe and Olivier Giroud.

Les Bleus have a strong historical record against Austria, with 13 wins in 25 matches, setting the stage for an exciting matchup.

The Group D opener will set the tone for France’s Euro campaign, with the team expected to show their prowess against a challenging Austrian side led by coach Ralf Rangnick.

Injuries have impacted several teams in the tournament, with David Alaba sidelined for Austria and key players missing for other competing nations like Poland and the Netherlands.

France, known for its depth and talent, appears well-equipped to handle any injury setbacks and maintain their strong performance.

The match will be a test for both teams, with France looking to secure an early victory before facing the Netherlands and Poland in subsequent group stage games.

Key players to watch include Austria’s Marko Arnautovic and Marcel Sabitzer, while France will rely on the likes of Mbappe, N'Golo Kante, and veteran Antoine Griezmann.

With a potential Austria lineup featuring Lindner, Baumgartner, and Gregoritsch, and France likely to field Maignan, Griezmann, and Mbappe, fans can expect an intense showdown in Düsseldorf.

Predictions favor France to emerge victorious with a comfortable margin, as Mbappe aims to lead his team to a successful start in the tournament.
