Switzerland v France

Highlights – Bayer 04 Leverkusen vs VFB Stuttgart

France will be looking to maintain their 100 per cent start at Euro 2016 when they travel to Stade Pierre-Mauroy for their final Group A clash with Switzerland on Sunday.

Les Bleus have already qualified, without looking very impressive, having left it late to win both their previous encounters against Romania and Albania.

Didier Deschamps' men hammered the Swiss 5-2 in the group stages of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, and with the pressure now off after progress to the knockout stages of the European championship, the hosts are expected to cut loose and produce their best football once again.

France have won 16 of the previous 37 meetings between the two nations.

Switzerland, meanwhile, will also be feeling confident of progression, as they need just one point from their last group match, having claimed four points so far in the competition.

Fabian Schar's strike sealed the victory for Vladimir Petkovic's side in their first match of the tournament at Stade Felix-Bollaert, before playing to a 1-1 draw with Romania at Parc des Princes on Wednesday.

Switzerland’s last victory against France was in May 1992. Since then, they have failed to win any of their six games against their neighbours, drawing three and losing three.

France and Switzerland are in the same group for the fourth time in the last seven major tournaments, which includes the Euro 2004, the 2006 World Cup, and the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

In team news, Manager Vladimir Petkovic has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the match.

For France, Paul Pogba and Antoine Griezmann a expected to make their return in the starting XI, after starting on the substitutes bench against Albania.
