France could've been out on their own in this group if not for the shock 2-0 loss to Turkey. But as it stands, they're level with the Turks and Iceland on nine points and top the group only by goal difference.
Nonetheless, the 2016 Euro finalists will be favourites to top the group, leaving the other sides to fight for the second spot.
Albania have looked fairly decent so far, but have troubles getting the goals they need to contend in this group.
The reigning World Champions should be expected to sweep Albania aside but it won't be without a challenge. With Turkey and Iceland also expected to this weekend, France need the win just to keep up with the others.
Perhaps, crucially, France will be missing the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Antony Martial, Ousmane Dembele, and Paul Pogba. Manchester City centre-back Aymeric Laporte, who was called up by Didier Deschamps to the French National side for the first time, will be incredibly disappointed to be sidelined by injury at this time.
Despite those big names missing from action, France have enough quality with the likes of Thomas Lemar, Nabil Fekir, and Antoine Griezmann in attack to get the three points in this game. However, Albania will be hoping to surprise the giants.
