France will face Switzerland in the round of 16 at Euro 2020 on Monday, and it promises to be a tactical game between the two strong sides.

Les Blues faced some resistance from Portugal on the final day of the group stage, but showed their quality to secure a draw and top spot in Group F.

They have been handed a tricky test against Switzerland, who were perhaps the definition of Jekyll and Hyde in the group stages.

Switzerland had to rely on a 3-1 win over Turkey to make it to the knockout stages of Euro 2020, and will hope to upset tournament favorites and current world champions France.

France vs Switzerland Head-to-head

The international record between the two sides isn’t as one-sided as many would presume.

While France do have a better record, they have won this fixture just four more times than Switzerland.

France have won this fixture 16 times, while Switzerland have won it on 12 occasions. Ten games have ended as draws.

The last time Switzerland beat France was way back in 1992, so a Swiss win would be the upset of the tournament.

France vs Switzerland Team News


Lucas Digne and Lucas Hernandez are expected to miss out for France, but Didier Deschamps does have good depth at the back.

Adrien Rabiot is also a doubt, and he will be assessed closer to the game to see if he can shake off his ankle injury.

Deschamps gave Jules Kounde some playing time against Portugal, but we could see Benjamin Pavard return to the team against the Swiss.

Ousmane Dembele is another player who is unavailable. The attacker suffered a knee injury and has left the French squad to go under the knife.

Injured: Lucas Digne, Lucas Hernandez, Ousmane Dembele

Doubtful: Adrien Rabiot

Suspended: None


Switzerland manager Vladimir Petkovic has a fully-fit squad to choose from. Petkovic may decide to stick with many of the players that started the previous game.

Injured: None

Suspended: None
