WORLD CUP 2022 – France – Denmark – The probable team of the Blues: Koundé rather than Pavard, Varane entry

He failed, he is sanctioned. If we trust the last training behind closed doors of the Blues before facing Denmark, Benjamin Pavard should give way to Jules Koundé. According to L’Equipe, the Barcelonan was among the starters this Saturday at the right-back position. If he has never been convinced in this position in Blue, he takes advantage of the torments of the Munich player against Australia. Weak side of the defense, this right wing is already subject to the questions and trial and error of Didier Deschamps.

“We have lots of ideas to reduce its influence”: Mbappé in the Danish viewfinder


Have the Blues been as successful as that?

Good news for him, on the other hand, Raphaël Varane, who has not played a single minute since his injury in the Premier League on October 22, should hold his place well. The Mancunian made the opposition alongside Dayot Upamecano. Ibrahima Konaté logically leaves his place to the vice-captain of the Blues. For the rest, the coach does not touch anything. He keeps his very offensive option in his 4-2-3-1 with Ousmane Dembélé on the left. Enough against the Australians, the Barcelonan keeps the main face at Kingsley Coman.

The daring bet of Deschamps

The trio Olivier Giroud, Kylian Mbappé and Antoine Griezmann, in a hybrid role of torchbearer in the defensive phase and leader in the offensive phase, is obviously maintained. The bet is daring against the Danes who failed two defeats this year to the Blues but Deschamps remains faithful to his idea.
