France predicted XI v Scotland: Olivier Giroud set to replace Randal Kolo Muani

France are set to make several changes to the side that beat the Netherlands on Friday. Notably, Olivier Giroud is set to replace Randal Kolo Muani up front for Tuesday night’s friendly against Scotland. 

Lucas Hernandez is set to be replaced at the back by Benjamin Pavard. Liverpool’s Ibrahima Konaté will therefore shift across the LCB and Pavard, who has previously been utilised as a RB, will part Konaté at CB. Jonathan Clauss, who started against the Netherlands is set to retain his spot ahead of Chelsea’s Malo Gusto, who made his France debut on Friday. 

Eduardo Camavinga will replace Adrien Rabiot in midfield, whilst there will be two changes made upfront. Ousmane Dembélé, who was a doubt to face the Netherlands, will make his return against Scotland, whilst Giroud will replace Kolo Muani through the middle. 

France likely lineup v Scotland

Mike Maignan; Théo Hernandez, Ibrahima Konaté, Benjamin Pavard, Jonathan Clauss; Eduardo Camavinga, Aurélien Tchouaméni, Antoine Griezmann; Kylian Mbappé, Olivier Giroud, Ousmane Dembélé.
