France vs Germany: Prediction and Betting Tips
Top candidates France will be looking to keep their winning record against the Germans
After losing the final of the Euro 2016 at home soil to Portugal, France will be looking to avenge in this year’s edition. Didier Deschamp’s team have to do it the hard way though as they were handed a very difficult draw with two candidates other than them competing in one group.
Les Bleus have not lost an opening game at the European championship since the continent’s first tournament back in 1961. The French side are in top form on both ends of the field. Deschamp’s attackers have scored six goals in their last two friendly matches without conceding a goal.
With an attacking line-up of Mbappe-Benzema-Griezmann, the world number two have a real firepower upfront not forgetting Olivier Giroud of course who was Deschamp’s favorite striker in the last World Cup. Benzema was just recently recalled to the French squad after missing the World cup.
France Key Stats
- France are unbeaten in the H2H on german soil in five matches
- France have clean sheets in their last four matches
- Both teams have scored in just three of their last ten matches
Joachim Low looking to leave his post with a memorable Euro
Three-time European champions may have not lost an opening game in Euro, Germany have not won against any team who are higher than them in the Fifa rankings in their last 11 matches. Reaching at least the semi-finals of all major competitions between 2006 and 2016, Die Mannschaft were surprisingly eliminated from the first round of the 2018 World Cup.
This will be Joachim Low’s last tournament in charge of the German national team. Recent results haven’t been encouraging. Back in November, they had a humiliating defeat by Spain 6-0 and lost at home to North Macedonia 2-1 in the World Cup 2022 qualifier.
However, one can never count out any German team as they have been candidates to win any tournament they play in. This will be Germany’s record-breaking 50th time stepping onto the field in a European championship.
Germany Key Stats
- Germany have clean sheets in three of their last ten matches
- Over 2.5 goals have been scored in Germany’s last seven of ten matches
- Germany haven’t won against higher-ranked teams in 11 games
France vs Germany Prediction
Didier Deschamps will hope his team will continue where they left off in the last major tournament they were in when they ended up lifting the World Cup.
Germany must be in top form especially in defense if they want to threaten the world champions. Their record against top teams is very worrying.
We think both teams will want to avoid defeat in this game as a point can be very crucial for the road to the second round. It will be tight and we might not see many goals.
France will be a slight favorite due to its recent form. We will back double chance France to win or draw taking into consideration their last five H2H meetings.
