France take on Switzerland in the last 16 of Euro 2020 on Monday evening, as Didier Deschamps’ team look to move a step closer to a World Cup-Euros double.

Having become world champions in Russia three summers ago, the French entered this summer’s rescheduled European Championship as favourites, and they did well to qualify top of Group F – the ‘group of death’ including Germany, Portugal and Hungary.

Switzerland, meanwhile, booked their spot in the knockout stages by qualifying as one of the four best third-placed finishers. The Swiss were third in Group A, behind leaders Italy – who beat Austria in the last 16 on Saturday – and Wales, who were eliminated in the round of 16 with a 4-0 defeat by Denmark.

France will be heavily favoured in Bucharest here, but anything can happen in knockout football.

Here’s everything you need to know about France vs Switzerland:

When is it?

The game will kick off at 8pm BST in Bucharest on Monday 28 June.

How can I watch it?

The match will air live on ITV, with the action also available to stream live on ITV Hub.

What is the team news?

Injury will keep France forward Ousmane Dembele out for the rest of the tournament, while left-back Lucas Digne will miss this tie. As such, Deschamps will hope Lucas Hernandez is fit in time to return to the starting XI in Digne’s absence.

Thomas Lemar and Marcus Thuram sustained injuries while training, casting doubt over their involvement against Switzerland, who have a full squad available.

France: 11/20

Draw: 14/5

Switzerland: 16/1


France didn’t look at their best in the first round but still emerged from the ‘group of death’ unbeaten in top spot. They should have the quality and depth to avoid an upset here. France 3-0 Switzerland.
