Hosts France will be looking for at least a draw to ensure they finish top of Group A when they take on Switzerland tonight.

Didier Deschamps has made some changes from the side that beat Albania last week with Manchester United attacker Anthony Martial dropping back to the bench and Antoine Griezmann coming back in to the attack after scoring from the bench last time out.

Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny once again starts in defence alongside Rami, Sagna and Evra but team mate Olivier Giroud is rested with Andre-Pierre Gignac leading the line up front.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris once again starts in between the sticks while Moussa Sissoko and Yoham Cabaye come in to the midfield with Leicester City’s N’Golo Kante among those rested.

As for Switzerland, new Arsenal signing Granit Xhaka will be looking to keep up his impressive form while Breel Embolo comes in to the attack.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

France

Lloris – Sagna, Rami, Koscielny, Evra – Sissoko, Cabaye, Pogba – Coman, Griezmann, Gignac.

Switzerland

Sommer – Lichtsteiner, Schär, Djourou, Rodriguez – Xhaka, Dzemaili, Behrami – Mehmedi, Shaqiri, Embolo.
