Official: Dembele, Kounde vs Lewandowski as France and Poland name starting XIs

There are as many as three Barcelona players in action today as the second day of round of 16 fixtures kicks off with France taking on Poland in the Al-Thumama Stadium.

Memphis Depay and Frenkie de Jong have already booked their place in the quarter-finals, but at least one Barcelona player will be knocked out today.

Donning the captain’s armband, Robert Lewandowski continues as the no. 9 for Poland. The striker has a goal and an assist so far this tournament, and will hope to cause an upset against the defending champions.

He will go against two Barcelona teammates, who start for the French side. Jules Kounde will be faced with the task of containing him a few times as the right-back, while Ousmane Dembele takes his place as the right-winger.

The winner of this game will go head-to-head against the triumphant of England vs Senegal which kicks off later tonight.
