The Blues can ensure their qualification

For supporters of the France team, and the curious, Saturday afternoon will be spent in front of a screen. The Blues face the Hungarians at 3 p.m. for their second match of the group stage. Didier Deschamps' men will want to confirm their good start to Euro 2020, namely their precious victory against Germany (1-0), leaving Budapest with the three points to approach the shock against Portugal with serenity. Because if successful, the 2018 World Champions would already have a foot in the round of 16. If the Mannschaft did not win against the defending champion later today, Hugo Lloris and his teammates would officially qualify for the rest of the competition. But even with a German victory,the finalists of the last European Championship would be almost guaranteed to come out of Group F. With six points, they would be certain to be among the four best third. This is why this match against Hungary is important for the France team. The task promises to be difficult, but the Blues are aware of it, as Lucas Hernandez indicated: "We will play in a full stadium (60,000 people expected in Budapest), it will change us but it will be another battle and another war on Saturday. Hungary does not leave much space and has jostled Portugal, explained the French defender at a press conference. It's solid defensively and I know the players who play in the Bundesliga and can hurt us.“A battle that should not be missed to hope to see the France team celebrate its qualification!

Will the French attackers shine?

Against Germany, France stood out above all for its defensive strength and collective values. Offensively, the Blues have especially stung on the defensive-offensive transitions made possible by interesting recoveries, rapid projections but also by the spaces left by the Mannschaft, in difficulty over several sequences in the defensive withdrawal and the management of depth. Against Hungary, the face of the meeting should be completely different. Without the ball, the Hungarians should, as against Portugal, evolve in a low block and tighten their lines to limit spaces. French offensive players will logically be expected in this tactical context. If Karim Benzema,Kylian Mbappé and Antoine Griezmann did not create many chances on the game placed in the first match, their ability to combine, to find clever passes, to eliminate in small perimeters and their creativity will be so many interesting qualities this Saturday. . Didier Deschamps could also call on different profiles, such as Olivier Giroud, to weigh in the area, Ousmane Dembélé and Kingsley Coman (if available), to strike, or even Wissam Ben Yedder and Thomas Lemar to bring technical accuracy in small spaces. Will the French attackers succeed in breaking the Hungarian lock? In any case, this is what will be asked of them. Especially after the promises made during the preparation matches and after having proclaimed loud and clear that France had the best attack in the world.Will they get there? This is what all the supporters of the Blues are hoping for!

Portugal-Germany, a new shock in group F

After a first intense and committed France-Germany shock, Group F offers us another great match, this time between Portugal and Mannschaft.

If Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates, who did not miss their start in the competition by winning widely but not without difficulty against Hungary (0-3), can already qualify for the knockout stages, the Joachim Lôw players, they must recover after their defeat against France (1-0).

An enticing encounter, with high stakes, between two selections listed among the favorites of this Euro 2020 and where talents are not lacking.

Not to be missed in the wake of the France team match!

Towards an even more historic Cristiano Ronaldo?

By scoring a brace against Hungary, Cristiano Ronaldo became, with 11 goals, the top scorer in the history of the European Championship, thus dethroning Michel Platini.

This Saturday, the five-time Ballon d'Or will have the opportunity to push its record a little further and to leave its mark on the competition even more.

It would be a shame to miss this possible great moment in football.

Spain must pull out its claws

For its first match, Spain disappointed. Certainly, she mastered the meeting and provided herself with various chances, but she mostly purred, spinning the ball up and down in front of the low and very compact Swedish block and trying too little percussion to worry Robin Olsen. This Saturday night, against Poland, La Roja must get out of the clutches. It must be sharper and put its technical accuracy at the service of offensive efficiency and not only for the benefit of "good play". Now is the time for Luis Enrique and his men to be more incisive, and therefore spectacular.
