France vs Bulgaria: Match preview

France welcome Bulgaria to the Stade de France for their final friendly match before kicking off their Euro 2020 campaign.

France began their shortened Euro 2020 preparations with a 3-0 home win over Wales last Wednesday. Kylian Mbappe opened the scoring in the first half. Ssecond-half goals from Antoinne Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele sealed the win. Karim Benzema started up front against Wales, making his first France appearance since 2015. It was hardly a fairytale return for the Real Madrid striker as he missed a first-half penalty.

France made it to the final of Euro 2016, losing to Portugal on home soil. Les Bleus will face Portgual again in Group F, along with Hungary and Germany.

France’s Euro 2020 opener takes place next Tuesday against Germany at the Allianz Arena.

Bulgaria began their international break with a 1-1 draw away to Slovakia on 1 June. Yasen Petrov’s side then lost 1-0 in Russia on Saturday.

Bulgaria are currently ranked 71st in the FIFA World Rankings. France, meanwhile, are ranked 2nd behind Belgium.

France and Bulgaria have faced each other on 22 previous occasions. The two sides have a surprisingly even head-to-head record, although Bulgaria’s last victory over France was back in 1993.

Blaise Matuidi scored the only goal of the game in Sofia in their most recent encounter, a 2018 World Cup qualifier.

France team news vs Bulgaria

N’Golo Kante and Olivier Giroud are back in the fold after competing in the Champions League final, and both players could feature in the starting eleven – with Corentin Tolisso and Karim Benzema likely to make way.

Full-backs Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez were subbed off at half-time against Wales but should both be okay to start.

Notable absentees from the France squad include Ferland Mendy, Dayot Upamecano, Tanguy Ndombele, Houssem Aouar, Eduardo Camavinga, and Anthony Martial.

Bulgaria team news vs France

Kristiyan Malinov will miss out after picking up an early injury against Russia. Petar Vitanov should replace him in midfield.

Atanas Illiev and Bozhidar Kraev will be looking to return to the starting lineup

There are no high profile players in Buglaria’s squad. Nobody in the current setup has more than three international goals.
