Friday, November 25. 10:25 a.m. As in 2018, did the match against Australia serve as a trigger for Didier Deschamps to make tactical changes in his team? After Benjamin Pavard’s lackluster performance in the right lane of the tricolor defense – particularly at fault on the Australian goal – the coach is looking for a new solution to replace the Bayern Munich player. According to the tests carried out on Thursday during training, central defenders Jules Koundé and Alex Disasi could be moved up a notch to take the defensive lane. This was reported RMC Sportscorroborating the statements of The Team who affirms that “Deschamps is thinking about rebalancing his right side”. The Koundé option could hold the rope more because, even if he has never really convinced in this position with the Blues, he is regularly positioned on this right flank of the defense with his club Barcelona. Still, Pavard is the only professional right defender, although he has been repositioned in the axis with Bayern Munich, which can explain his loss of bearings. In short, one more headache for Didier Deschamps who still seems to have tried a new formula on the right flank of the tricolor defense.
