France will lock horns with Austria in a Group A clash at UEFA Nations League 2022 on September 23 (Friday). The high-voltage football match will be played at Stade de France. Les Blues will look to get things in order as they face the prospect of a potential relegation from the group while the visitors also stay just ahead of them with four points to their name. The 2018 FIFA World Cup champions were unable to clinch a single win throughout all of June, despite having world class players like Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe. On the other hand, Austria, after starting their European campaign with a 3-0 win over Croatia, suffered setbacks in their last three games.

Didier Deschamps' side didn't jel this summer, taking only two points from the first possible 12 on offer. The French boss now faces an uphill task due to a series of injury crises in the squad that sees players like Paul Pogba, Lucas Hernandez, N'Golo Kante, Anthony Martial and Karim Benzema unavailable. However, Olivier Giroud and Ousmane Dembele are expected to start alongside Mbappe, given Benzema's absence.
For Austria, Ralf Rangnick is well-aware of the teams' standings in the group and would go with the strong-possible squad. But, the visitors are also suffering injury blows in the forms of Martin Hinteregger, Valentino Lazaro and Florian Grillitsch. The former Manchester United boss will be relieved to get his fit star David Alaba for this contest as the player will be responsible to stop the flow of attacks of the Les Blues in France. A defeat in this match means the hosts will crash out of the Nations League 2022. With a lot at stake, a cracker of a game is expected in this fixture.
