Laurent Blanc's men welcome their neighbours to the Stade de France having not lost a game this calender year, but they are still looking to improve ahead of Euro 2012
Reveilliere, Abidal, Rami, Mathieu
Menez, Cabaye, M'Vila, Ribery
Vanden Borre, Vermaelen, Kompany, Vertonghen
Defour, Fellaini, Witsel
Hazard, Mirallas, Dembele
Laurent Blanc will be using this game to exercise the 4-4-2 formation that failed to show its maximum potential in Friday's unconvincing 1-0 win over the USA. He is also expected to introduce more players into the starting XI after four players made their debuts against the Americans.
Florent Malouda and Yohan Cabaye have recovered from knocks and came through a training session to ensure full fitness for Tuesday's encounter. The lack of a playmaker failed to ignite the partnership of Kevin Gameiro and Karim Benzema, with the former set to be dropped in favour of in-form Loic Remy.
Eric Abidal is set to take his place in defence after joining up with the squad following his Copa del Rey exploits with Barcelona, and without an experienced left-back, Jeremy Mathieu could again extend his run in the national side. Hugo Lloris could also be dropped in favour of Marseille's Steve Mandanda, with the latter arguably in better form as Blanc mulls his strongest side for next summer's Euro 2012.
Belgium, on the other hand, will be without Kevin De Bruyne after the midfielder contracted illness ahead of the trip to Paris. Arsenal's Thomas Vermaelen is in line for a return to the side after he sat out Friday's 2-1 win over Romania. Eden Hazard, who plies his trade in Ligue 1 with Lille, is set to take his place in attack, while 19 year old goalkeeper Thibault Courtois could also make his international debut at the Stade de France.
