With an eleven without any real presence despite the presence of Saliba in central defense, the Blues got the best start by monopolizing the ball. Pressed by surly Austrians, Didier Deschamps’ players have long been the victims of opposing tackles. If the opportunities were rare, Kylian Mbappé found the fault. After a sublime parade of Mike Maignan, the French captain recovers a ball in the 38th minute of play after a misunderstanding and crosses. On the trajectory, Maximilian Wöber diverts the ball into his own cages, putting a damper on the Austrian hopes. At the break, the Blues took the lead.
