Ireland-France, the probable formations

Ireland and France will face each other Monday night in one of the matches on the second day of qualifying for the upcoming European Championships. Kickoff at 8:45 p.m. at the Aviva Stadium. The transalpines, after a clear 4-0 win over the Netherlands, are looking for the three points to remain on full points and move into the lead of Group B, also complicit in Greece’s rest day.

Deschamps is not expected to make any major changes from the previous match. Leading the attack will be Giroud with Mbappé, Griezmann and Coman behind him. In midfield will be Tchouameni and one between Rabiot and Camavinga. Kelly, on the other hand, will rely on the offensive tandem consisting of Obafemi and Ferguson to try to unhinge the defense of the vice World Champions.

Likely lineups.

IRELAND (3-5-2): Bazunu; Egan, Collins, O’Shea; Doherty, Cullen, Molumby, Knight, O’Dowda; Ferguson, Obafemi. All. Kelly.

FRANCE (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Kounde, Konate, Upamecano, T. Hernandez; Tchouameni, Camavinga; Coman, Griezmann, Mbappé; Giroud. All. Deschamps
