France take on Switzerland as both teams battle for top spot in group A in the final round of fixtures in the group stages. France are guaranteed a place in the Round of 16 and the Swiss should also advance, even if they lose to the hosts.

Didier Deschamps has made it clear that securing top spot is their primary aim, but indicated that he could make few changes to keep his starting XI fresh going into the Round of 16. Andre Pierre-Gignac could start ahead of Olivier Giroud, with the Arsenal forward one booking away from suspension, while their midfield could see some changes with Mousa Sissoko and Yohan Cabaye given an outing. N'Golo Kante is also one yellow card away from missing the next game.

Switzerland need just one point from the game to ensure second place in the group, but a win will take them above France. It will ensure an easier draw in the next round. Vladimir Petkovic is also likely to make changes to the side as a number of his key players are one booking away from suspension. Behrami, two-times man of the match winner Granit Xhaka, Fabian Schar and Breel Embolo are all in danger of missing their Round of 16 clash if booked.

France lead the head-to-head clashes between the two teams 16-12 with their latest win over the Swiss coming at the 2014 World Cup. It was a 5-2 win, but Petkovic admitted that revenge for that drubbing will not be their motive.

What manager's say

Didier Deschamps (France): I could rotate things. All my players are available, but there are a number of different criteria to consider. I have to pick a team to make sure we secure top spot. That's our aim.

We should have more freedom against Switzerland due to their style of play. Playing against an ultra-defensive side is very difficult. Switzerland have a team that like to play football so it might be an open game.

Vladimir Petkovic (Switzerland): We're not really thinking too much about our 5-2 defeat by France at the World Cup two years ago. We're certainly not looking for revenge. We're focusing on the present – that's all that counts.

We want to show France that we can play football just as well as them. Yes, we might get a couple of opportunities from set pieces which we can take advantage of, but we also want to show them that we can play football.
