The second round of pool fixtures concludes at Euro 2020 on Saturday with the big guns in action across the continent.
France cede home advantage to Hungary as they go to Budapest for the afternoon kick off, looking to build on their opening win against Germany.
Joachim Low’s side are in action straight after, facing another huge clash against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Euro 2016 winners Portugal in Munich.
Group E also keeps on moving, as Spain seek their first victory of the competition in Seville against Poland.
Group F: Hungary vs France
France won’t expect to have it all their own way when they travel to Budapest to tackle underdogs Hungary in Group F at Euro 2020 on Saturday.
The reigning World Cup champions came through a heavy duty opening encounter in the group of death, coaxing an own goal out of Mats Hummels to seal a 1-0 win over Germany.
Their hosts played out of their skins for no reward against Euro 2016 winners Portugal earlier in the day, amid a crackling atmosphere inside the Puskas Arena.
Level until the 84th minute and having had a goal of their own chalked off by VAR, Raphael Guerreiro’s deflected goal broke the seal before Cristiano Ronaldo hit twice to become the competition’s all-time leading goalscorer.
Benjamin Pavard will need to be assessed for Les Bleus, having suffered a knock to the head against the Germans, while Adrien Rabiot and Corentin Tolisso battle it out for a starting place.
Rolland Sallai looks to have made a successful return to action for the home side, with Loic Nego also an option in midfield as they look to summon another mammoth effort against the favourites.
Probable Hungary Starting XI: Peter Gulacsi, Endre Botka, Willi Orban, Attila Szalai, Gergo Lovrencsics, Loic Nego, Adam Nagy, Laszlo Kleinheisler, Attila Fiola, Adam Szalai, Roland Sallai.
Probable France Starting XI: Hugo Lloris, Benjamin Pavard, Raphael Varane, Presnel Kimpembe, Lucas Hernandez, Adrien Rabiot, N’Golo Kante, Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann, Karim Benzema, Kylian Mbappe.
Group F: Portugal vs Germany
Strap in for another herculean Euro 2020 pool fixture, as reigning champions Portugal could go a long way to knocking heavyweights Germany out of the tournament on Saturday evening.
The Germans are back on home turf in Munich, four days after Mats Hummels’ own goal proved the difference as world champions France pinched three points in their Group F opener in Bavaria.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s side did what they do best, somehow coming away from their opener against Hungary with a 3-0 win, in the face of a spicy Budapest crowd at the Puskas Arena.
Raphael Guerriero finally opened the scoring in the 84th minute, before Ronaldo’s late double, one from the penalty spot, made him the all-time top goalscorer at the European Championship.
He’ll be the focal point as ever here, while the likes of Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and Renato Sanches are all options to start if they fancy a shake up.
Joachim Low lost Matthias Ginter to injury on Tuesday, with Emre Can expected to deputize if the defender doesn’t make it.
Leon Goretzka could make a welcome return for the Germans, who have plenty to ponder with the clock ticking on Low’s long spell in charge.
Probable Portugal Starting XI: Rui Patricio, Nelson Semedo, Pepe, Ruben Dias, Raphael Guerreiro, Renato Sanches, Danilo Pereira, Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes, Diogo Jota, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Probable Germany Starting XI: Manuel Neuer, Emre Can, Mats Hummels, Antonio Rudiger, Joshua Kimmich, Ilkay Gundogan, Toni Kroos, Robin Gosens, Leroy Sane, Thomas Muller, Timo Werner.
Group E: Spain vs Poland
Spain have a second chance to get their Euro 2020 campaign properly up and running when they host Poland in Seville on Saturday night.
The fixture brings the second round of Group E fixtures – and indeed of the entire pool stage – to a close in Iberia.
And the home side will need to have sharpened up on their end product in the five days since being held to a goalless draw by stubborn Sweden at the same venue.
Luis Enrique’s men made nearly a thousand passes and boasted a whopping 85% of the possession, but couldn’t put the ball in the net against the Scandanavians.
It was worse still for the Poles in St Petersburg, as they slipped to a shock defeat against minnows Slovakia.
Karol Linetty pulled his side level in Russia after Wojciech Szczesny’s early own goal, but Milan Skriniar sealed their fate after Grzegorz Krychowiak had been sent off for a second yellow card just after the hour.
His ban could see Linetty drop deeper to fill the gap, although Jakub Moder is also an option for Portuguese coach Paulo Sousa from the start.
Thiago and Gerard Moreno will be considered by Enrique to add the vital cutting edge for the Spanish, while Sergio Busquets continues to edge closer to full fitness.
Probable Spain Starting XI: Unai Simon, Marcos Llorente, Aymeric Laporte, Pau Torres, Jordi Alba, Thiago, Rodri, Koke, Ferran Torres, Gerard Moreno, Dani Olmo.
Probable Poland Starting XI: Wojciech Szczesny, Bartosz Bereszynski, Kamil Glik, Jan Bednarek, Kamil Jozwiak, Mateusz Klich, Karol Linetty, Maciej Rybus, Piotr Zielinski, Robert Lewandowski, Karol Swiderski.
