In the round 5 fixture France vs Austria, the 2018 World Cup champions will be facing an experienced Austrian side.
France has arguably the strongest squad depth in all positions with some of the finest and in-form players. However, the current French side have been performing terribly as of late. They currently lie bottom of the table in the UEFA Nations League after failing to register a win in any of the four matches so far. Ahead of the world cup, it will be crucial for Deschamps to get his team back to winning ways.
Austria are no different either, sitting just above France in the 3rd position in the table. The Austrians have managed to win just one of their four matches and are unlikely to qualify out of Group A. They do not possess quality on all fronts but experienced players like David Alaba and Sabitzer provide much-needed assurance.
