France vs Ukraine match preview

France are one of just two sides to come through the group stages with maximum points, so how far will this winning streak take them?

So far, les Bleuets have been unstoppable at this summer’s under-21 European Championships.

Sylvain Ripoll’s side beat Italy 2-1 and then Norway 1-0, before demolishing Switzerland 4-1 at Stadionul Dr. Constantin Rădulescu on Wednesday.

Amine Gouiri, Bradley Barcola, Rayan Cherki and Maxence Caqueret all on target in Cluj-Napoca.

Amazingly, France haven’t won the U21 Euros since 1988, but that fact may no longer be true come next Sunday.

Ukraine are the team aiming to spring a surprise, having reached the knockout phase for the first time in 17 years.

The Blue and Yellows achieved this with a game to spare, courtesy of group stage wins over Croatia and then Romania.

Then, despite leading twice through Bohdan Vyunnyk and then Heorhiy Sudakov, the latter an 81st minute penalty, Ukraine couldn’t quite hold to beat Spain, conceding an equaliser in the last minute.

So, Ruslan Rotan’s side had to settle for second place, and this very daunting quarter-final match-up.

Will France march through to the last four at Cluj Arena, where five-times winners Spain await?

France team news

Michael Olise suffered a serious hamstring tear during the win over Norway, which’ll see him sidelined for three months, a major blow for Crystal Palace.

Without him, Rayan Cherki and Enzo Le Fée will supporter lone front man Arnaud Kalimuendo.

Loïc Badé served his one-match suspension on matchday two, so will continue to partner Castello Lukeba at the back.

Ukraine team news

Ruslan Rotan rotated heavily against Spain in mid-week, with all his big guns saved for this one.

Bizarrely, Mykhailo Mudryk is yet to play a single minute at this tournament, an unused substitute on three occasions, so will that change in Cluj?

Anatoliy Trubin will return in goal, with Artem Bondarenko and Danylo Sikan also back in.

Striker Vladyslav Vanat is available again, having been sent off in stoppage time against Romania.
