Euro Fantasy Football, June 19th updates

The final set of fixtures for Matchweek 2 is set to play out on Saturday, with a number of top, top sides in action across the day.

The day’s action begins at 2 PM UK time when Hungary and France face off. Les Bleus are clear favourites for this game and should have little issues picking up a win.

We will then see Portugal and Germany go head-to-head in a game that could be of huge importance in deciding who finishes second in Group F.

And finally, Spain will play host to Poland in a must-win tie after their disappointing showing vs Sweden last time out.

Injury news

Hungary: Hungary have no injury concerns ahead of their meeting with France

France: Benjamin Pavard suffered a head injury during France’s win over Germany in the opening week.

However, the full-back did not come off after being assessed by the doctors and UEFA have confirmed they were satisfied Pavard did not lose consciousness from the incident. As a result, it would seem Pavard will be ok to face Hungary, though it may be one to keep a close eye on.

Portugal: Portugal currently have no injury issues ahead of facing Germany.

Germany: Germany have a couple of issues you should take into consideration. Lukas Klostermann is expected to miss out after picking up a thigh injury in training.

Leon Goretzka and Jonas Hofmann missed out vs France last time out, with the former in contention to return this week.

Elsewhere, Serge Gnabry trained away from the main squad on Thursday.

Lukas Klostermann has suffered a thigh injury in training and the #GER defender is likely to miss MD2. Leon Goretzka is in contention for Joachim Löw but Jonas Hofmann, who has taken part in aspects of training, is not ready. Serge Gnabry worked away from the main group today.
