France v Germany Prediction - Preview
France is attempting to win the EURO after winning the last FIFA World Cup; a feat they last accomplished in 1998 and 2000. They are currently ranked 2nd in the world by FIFA. With Didier Deschamps as coach, Les Bleus are led by big names such as Kylian Mbappe (PSG), Karim Benzema (Real Madrid), Antoine Griezmann (Barcelona) and Olivier Giroud (Arsenal) among others. They qualified for the 2020 finals by finishing first in their group, winning eight of their ten qualifiers (D1 L1) to pick up 25 points, two more than Turkey. Their last match was a friendly against Bulgaria, whom they defeated 3-0, thanks to a brace from Giroud and a goal from Griezmann. Having lost in the previous edition to Portugal, can the boys in blue win it all this time around?
- France’s record in Germany overall (including matches with West/East Germany/ other countries, is W8 D8 L7.
- Les Bleus have won 14 of the sides’ 31 fixtures, compared to nine victories for Germany.
- Deschamps’ record as a coach against Germany is W3 D2 L2.
Germany will try to win their fourth European championship, and their first since 1996. At the moment, they are ranked 12th by FIFA in the world. Under the leadership of coach Joachim Low, Die Mannschaft is headed by veterans Manuel Neuer (Bayern) and Toni Kroos (Real Madrid), as well as young names as Kai Havertz (Chelsea) and Ilkay Gundogan (Man City) among others. They arrived at this stage by winning 7 of their 8 qualifiers, losing only to the Netherlands (2-4) . The Germans showed their might in their last match, a friendly against Latvia, which they won 7-1. Could the 2014 World Cup champions rise above their FIFA ranking and win another EURO after a long drought?
- Germany last missed out on the semi-finals in 2004, when they did not make it through the group stage.
- This will be Die Mannschaft’s first game in Munich since a goalless draw against France in September 2018–a result that gave them the overall record of W13 D5 L7 in the city.
- Löw’s record against France is W2 D2 L4.

France v Germany Prediction - Final Thoughts
This will argaubly be the most anticipated game of Matchday 1, as France and Germany are both tipped to be favourites. After finishing as runners-up in the last Euro and becoming world champions two years after, Les Bleus are looking strong as ever. However, we feel that Germany, despite their unusually low FIFA ranking, are going to pull off a surprise on their home turf. Given their abundance of talent and Low’s coaching prowess, Die Mannschaft will hand France a shock defeat in a close match. Let’s take a look at the prediction.
