Griezmann, Thuram, Konaté... These French people ready to battle this weekend in Europe

Antoine Griezmann and the Colchoneros travel to the Santiago Bernabeu stadium on Sunday evening for the clash at the top of the La Liga table (Sunday, 9:00 p.m.). If they are left behind in the standings, the Atletico players intend to strike a big blow in the lair of the Merengue and Diego Simeone can rely on his French striker. The club's all-time top scorer is particularly enjoying facing rivals Madrid this season. In three matches, “Grizou” has always found the net. Real's defense doesn't seem to have a solution to prevent it (11 goals and 6 assists in 22 La Liga matches).

This time, the club with 14 cups and big ears should have a larger squad. Handicapped by injuries since the start of the season, Carlo Ancelotti has had to find solutions to compensate for the absences of his senior players. For several matches, it is Ferland Mendy who has emerged victorious from the Madrid massacre. Much more used by the Italian coach this season, who has not failed to shower him with praise in the press, the left back continues his rise in power. Ahead of him, the return of Aurélien Tchouaméni and Edouardo Camavinga will also be important. Injured at the start of the season, the two French midfielders have come back strongly since the start of the year. With their defensive profile, the two players will therefore have a major role to play in preventing Antoine Griezmann from finding the net once again.

Their first confrontation was electric and observers of the France team greatly appreciated the level of Wiliam Saliba and Ibrahima Konaté. The two defenders face each other again this Sunday (5:30 p.m.), a third time in a month. Saliba was greatly missed by the Gunners last season with an injury in the second half of the season, one of the reasons which cost them the title of champion of England. This year, the Frenchman is present to hold his place in the central hinge and it is partly thanks to his good performances that the London club is still in the race. But this season, in addition to Manchester City, we must get rid of the Reds.

Even though he announced that he would leave the club at the end of the season, Jürgen Klopp intends to leave by offering Liverpool a new title. To do this and while waiting for the return of Mohamed Salah, the German can count on an iron defense, led by Ibrahima Konaté. The young Frenchman was sparkling during the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and has never decreased in intensity since. In the first leg at Anfield (1-1), he contained every attempt at overflow from the Gunners' wingers and did not miss a single intervention. Always generous in intensity and effort, “Ibou” particularly pleases English fans. At the Emirates Stadium, he will have to once again deliver a very high level performance if he wants to allow his team to stay at the top of the Premier League.

New championship and new clash between the French to take the lead. Marcus Thruam's Inter Milan hosts Adrien Rabiot's Juventus Turin to determine who will start the month of February at the top of Serie A. The French striker of the Nerazzurri has had a full season with a role of number 9 perfectly assumed (8 goals and 7 assists in the league). With this contribution, the Interists are at the top of Calcio with only a small point ahead of their rival from Turin.

The Old Lady has found her legs this season and Adrien Rabiot is one of the reasons. The midfielder has become an essential part of the Turin midfield. With Euro 2024 in his sights, the former Parisian is keen to have the best possible season. But the problem could be physical. Hit in the calf 15 days ago, Rabiot has missed the last two league matches and is still doubtful for the clash against Inter Milan.
