Turkey take on France at the Stade De France in the Euro 2020 Group H Match Day 8 qualifier on Monday.

The Crescent-Stars head into the clash as group leaders on goal difference having beat France 2-0 at home in Istanbul.

Turkey and France are both tied on 18 points heading into the clash and even a draw would put both sides in a great position to book a place in the European championships.

The Turks head into the clash without star winger Cengiz Under and 19-year-old attacking midfielder Abdulkadir Omur.

Head coach Senol Gunes has gone for a defensively minded setup with Leicester City defender Caglar Soyuncu starting alongside Juventus centre-back Merih Demiral in defence and Lille right-back Mehmet Zeki Celik and Umut Meras as full-backs.

In midfield, Celta Vigo ace Okay Yokuslu has been drafted in to replace the injured Emre Belozoglu.

The 1.91m tall midfielder will add a powerful presence alongside Mahmut Tekdemir and the hard-working Ozan Tufan.

Burak Yilmaz will provide the main attacking outlet with his pace and will be joined by Kenan Karaman on the flank and Irfan Can Kahveci to provide a creative spark.

France meanwhile, will be without several key players including Hugo Lloris, Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba.
