Luxembourg make short journey to France

Luxembourg travel to France in Group D in the midst of a three-game run without scoring against their opponents, who have won all 11 competitive encounters with the Grand Duchy.

Past results in games between France and Luxembourg may make fairly miserable reading for the Grand Duchy, but as they meet again in UEFA EURO 2012 Group D, the visitors can at least draw hope from one previous win.

Match background
• France's record in 14 matches against Luxembourg reads W13 D0 L1 (W6 D0 L0 at home).

• Les Bleus have enjoyed an overwhelming dominance in this fixture, having won all 11 of their competitive meetings by an aggregate score of 48-5. Luxembourg have lost their last three games against France without scoring.

• However, Luxembourg do boast one past victory against France, recording a 5-4 friendly success against their rivals on 8 February 1914, when Jean Massard registered four times for the hosts.
