France vs Finland: times, TV and how to watch online

France will be looking to secure three points against Finland in World Cup 2022 Qualifying Group D after a draw with Ukraine in their last match, while Finland came out on top in a 1-0 triumph against Kazakhstan.

While injuries affected Didier Deschamps’ team even before September's international break got underway, the loss of Kylian Mbappé with a calf issue has complicated things even more for ‘Les Bleus’.

France, with Dayot Upamecano, N'Golo Kanté, Corentin Tolisso, Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernández unavailable, haven’t won any of their last five games in all competitions, but they are still on top in Group D with nine points, four ahead of Finland and Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Finland, who are attempting to qualify for a World Cup for the first time in their history, remain unbeaten in the group after chalking up their first victory over Kazakhstan last weekend.

The good news for Markku Kanerva's men is that they are in second position, four points behind France with two games in hand, but they have only emerged victorious twice from their last 11 fixtures.

Despite beating France 2-0 in a friendly match in Paris in 2020, Finland have lost their other eight clashes against ‘Les Bleus’ by an aggregate score of 18-3.
