Monday's Euro 2024 schedule concludes with an exciting Group D match between France and Austria in Dusseldorf, Germany. France join England and Germany as the favorites to win the tournament, but they will have a stern test to open group play. Austria are unbeaten in their last seven matches as they try to build on their run to the Round of 16 three years ago. They are also trying to record their second all-time win over France, as they are just 1-7-2 in the last 10 meetings.

Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. ET. The French are the -175 favorites (risk $175 to win $100) in the latest France vs. Austria odds, with the Austrians as the +500 underdogs. A draw is priced at +310, and the over/under for total goals scored is 2.5.

Why you should back France

These teams have drastically different pedigree playing in the continental championships, as France have two titles while Austria have never advanced past the Round of 16. France are led by superstar Kylian Mbappe, who won the Golden Boot at the 2022 World Cup. The French cruised through Euro 2024 qualifying with seven victories, including a record-setting 14-0 win over Gibraltar.

Manager Didier Deschamps, who is the only living man to win a World Cup as a player and a manager, will oversee France's 11th Euro appearance. They have not lost a group-stage match since Euro 2012, and they picked up a 2-0 win over Austria in the last meeting between these sides. Austria are in good form, but they are facing a stern test in their first group-stage match. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Austria

Austria are entering this competition with momentum after going unbeaten in their last seven matches, including a 2-0 win over Germany in a friendly international last year. They have shown drastic improvement under manager Ralf Rangnick, who was in just his fifth game when France picked up the 2-0 win in 2022. Their last Euro opener resulted in a 3-1 win over North Macedonia, which was a strong result after losing their last two openers in shutout fashion. 

France have been dealing with a virus outbreak at their training base, with Mbappe and Kingsley Coman missing some training sessions earlier this week. Mbappe was limited to just 15 minutes in a 0-0 draw against Canada last Sunday due to an injury, so his fitness is a concern heading into Monday's match. Austria are a relatively healthy side, which could give them an advantage in this Group D opener. See which team to pick here.
