Mbappe 'won't save the day' for France

Bulgaria vs France

Group leaders France travel to Bulgaria on Saturday, holding a one-point advantage over Sweden, who host Luxembourg.

France is the favorite to finish top of this Group A, now leading the group with 17 points.

France have injury issues as they are without Layvin Kurzawa, Laurent Koscielny, Benjamin Mendy, Ousmane Dembele and Paul Pogba.

The penultimate round of European World Cup qualifying came to a conclusion on Saturday, with France, Switzerland and Portugal all ensuring qualification is their own hands, but the Netherlands now need a miracle to have any hope of qualification.

That saw the Swedes temporarily move into top spot but victory means France know that three points at home to Belarus on Tuesday will book their place in Russian Federation.

"It's a really important match, we have to go to Russian Federation. It's more than a goal, it's a fact", said France striker Kylian Mbappe, who wasn't born until five years after the defeat to Bulgaria in 1993. We have a quality group. When you have good players, it's normal that to expect us to make the difference. The pressure is something I love.

Brighton's Davy Propper and Southampton's Virgil van Dijk will both be pushing for starting spots for the Netherlands.

However, with Portugal's only loss having been away to the Swiss, Ronaldo and co have an opportunity to top the group if they can win the crunch clash between the pair in Lisbon on Tuesday.

Greece are in second place, two points clear of Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The other early kickoff in that group saw qualifying rookies Gibraltar suffer yet another thrashing, loosing 6-0 at home to Estonia.

The likes of Wales and Scotland were left indebted to Belgium, who beat Bosnia 4-3 to stay top of their group but more importantly, push Bosnia down the second placed table, meaning Wales and Scotland have a better chance to be a "best placed runner up" and enter the play-off's.
