FRA vs ALB Dream11 : France look to garner an extremely crucial three points in a tricky Group h which is wide open as things stand
Perhaps one of the toughest and trickiest groups in the trickiest groups in the UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifying Round resumes service today with group leaders France taking on Albania. Although they sit in first place with the three wins from four matches, France will be well aware that passage into next year’s Euro is far from assured in a group lined up with stellar competitors.
However, our hosts of today are World Cup winners for a reason, having lifted the glistening trophy last year after having decimated Croatia in the final. And they managed to justify that colossal stature accorded on them with a 4-0 thrashing of Andorra in their previous outing, a much needed result after being handed a stunning upset by Turkey who defeated them 2-0.
While the side are expected to win today, this match is nowhere going to a straightforward clash for them. The side are without a slew of their star performers, names all out of this round of the qualifiers owing to injuries, a predicament which has massively weakened the identity of this French outfit. And with Albania still in with a chance for making it through to Euro 2020, the side will come hot out of the blocks today’s in a bid to make the most of France’s depleted outfit.
FRA vs ALB Dream11
Placed level on points with Turkey and Iceland, group H is the most competitive and closely contested group at the moment with France just edging the other two by a better goal difference. And today’s match is bound to be a testament to the group with these sides set to leave no stone unturned in their quest to pull off a win.
What favours France though is the knowhow the side have of the game along with the immense acumen and penchant of football running through the side. Playing at home is also bound to buoy the outfit who should end up outscoring their opponents and accumulating an extremely crucial three points from this clash.

FRA vs ALB Dream11 Goal-Keeper
With France all set to pepper Albania’s goal today, Etrit Berisha will come under a testing onslaught, an exam we see him standing resolute and firm in. he’s an astounding shot stopper, known for his ability to reach out and pull off some unexpected saves and should rope into our side a hoard of save points from his efforts.
FRA vs ALB Dream11 Defenders
If any side is going to emerge from this encounter with a cleansheet, it’s going to be France. The side are going to look to their backline to help craft the framework of success for them and leave Bulgaria’s attacking sojourns in disarray.
Along with this, the side are without Kylian Mbappe for this one, meaning the fullbacks will also be tasked with pouring into their repertoire of attacking capabilities and contributing to the side’s attacking sojourns. This sees us bring in Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard from the side while from the opposition we have opted for Megrim Mavraj.
FRA vs ALB Dream11 Midfielders
With Mbappe out for this match, Thomas Lemar looks set to play for France today, seeing us get him in along with Nabil Fekir. Although Fekir shouldn’t be included in the playing 11, he will make an appearance as a substitute and given the goals he’s scored in La Liga, he looks set for another today as well.
Albania have a representation of both an attacking player and a CDM as we look to seamlessly blend in attack and defence from the side into our Dream 11 outfit. This sees us go in with Amir Abrashi and Ledian Memushaj, two names who will act as the fulcrum of the side’s gameplan today.
FRA vs ALB Dream11 Strikers
France should enjoy their time out in the front of the pitch today, crafting some effervescently luscious passes and crosses to keep testing Albania and register a slew of goals. It’s this inevitable narrative which sees us choose an entire trivalent from the side with striker Olivier Giroud, Antoine Griezmann and Kingsley Coman all being picked up by us.
