Ukraine got off to an awesome start by beating Sweden in their opening game and Oleg Blokhin's men will probably keep their enthusiasm against France. On the other hand, Les Bleus need a vital win after drawing 1-1 with England.
Here are the probable line ups:
Pyatov - Husyev, Khacheridi, Mykhalyk, Selin - Tymoschchuck, Rotan - Nazarenko, Konoplyanka, - Yarmolenko - Voronin
Lloris - Debuchy, Rami, Mexes, Evra - Cabaye, M'Vila, Malouda - Nasri, Benzema, Ribery
Ukraine had a great game against Sweden, especially in attack, but against France things might be different as Les Bleus will probably be the ones who will be looking to control the game. With that in mind, coach Oleg Blokhin might field a more defensive line-up.
The obvious option for the Ukraine boss would be to take out a striker and put in an extra midfielder. Star striker Andriy Shevchenko could be the man to make way, mainly because he is 35 years old and has played an intense 80 minutes against Sweden. Ruslan Rotan will probably be the extra man in midfield.
France boss Laurent Blanc decided not to risk midfielder Yann M'Vila in their game against England, but the Rennes player is likely to be back to full fitness and will probably get a starting berth ahead of Alou Diarra. That could be the only change compared to the game against England but the French boss has viable options in his squad like Hatem Ben Arfa and Marvin Martin in attack or Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny at the back.
Here are the match odds from Bet365:
Ukraine - 11/4
Draw - 23/10
France - 11/10
