France vs Scotland Team News

Raphael Varane and Jeremy Mathieu are both sidelined with injury, but Anthony Martial should be fit to face Scotland. The likes of Karim Benzema, Mathieu Valbuena and Kevin Gameiro failed to make France squad for Euro 2021. Samuel Umtiti has replaced injured Jeremy Mathieu and he could play some part in Saturday’s friendly. Mamadou Sakho, Hatem Ben Arfa and Alexandre Lacazette have been overlooked. Antoine Griezmann returns to contention after missing the Cameroon game due to club commitments.

Injured: Jeremy Mathieu, Raphael Varane
Doubtful: None

Andrew Robertson, Robert Snodgrass and Shaun Maloney return to contention after missing the Italy game due to club commitments, but the likes of Christophe Berra and Barry Bannan both miss out. John McGinn is unlikely to feature against France (injury), while the likes of Allan McGregor, Scott Bain, Alan Hutton, Lee Wallace and Chris Martin all withdrew from the squad. There are four uncapped players in the squad: Scott Fox, Jack Hamilton, Stephen Kingsley and Barrie McKay. Craig Gordon, Kieran Tierney, James Forrest, Leigh Griffiths and Scott Brown will not take part in Saturday’s match.

Injured: John McGinn

Quick Facts

  • Over 4.5 goals were scored in each of France’s last three friendly games
  • Les Tricolores scored 2+ goals in each of their previous seven home matches

France vs Scotland Prediction

France will be looking to build on a hard-fought win over Cameroon when they take on Scotland in their final warm-up game before kicking off their Euro 2021 campaign on 10 June with a match against Romania. Didier Deschamps’ troops have been impressive at home in 2016 and considering that the Scotts head into the match with a severely-weakened squad, home win should be considered this time out.
