France – Germany Match Preview

  • After a bitter runners-up finish at Euro 2016, reigning world champions France come into this competition as serious candidates to win Euro 2020 as they attempt to become the first side to be world and European champions at the same time on two occasions. ‘Les Bleus’ are known to be strong starters in European Championships, losing just one of their nine opening games of the tournament (W5, D3), with that single loss dating back to 1960!
  • Although this game will be held in Munich, France’s confidence should be high as they’re unbeaten in five H2Hs on German soil (W3, D2). The world’s number two ranked nation are also enjoying a run of four consecutive wins ‘to nil’, and notably, a fifth successive shutout would mark their longest run without conceding since June 2008.
  • Reaching at least the semi-final stage in all international competitions between 2006 and 2016, Germany (#12) were humbled at the 2018 World Cup, finishing last in their group. Three-time Euro winners, the Germans may have never lost an opening game in this competition (W7, D5), but they’re now winless in 11 international matches against nations currently ranked better than them by FIFA (D7, L4).
  • This will be Joachim Löw’s last tournament in charge of the German national team who were humiliated 6-0 by Spain in November, and in March lost 2-1 at home to North Macedonia (#62). The H2H history makes for worrying reading too, as the ‘Mannschaft’ are winless in five meetings with France (D2, L3) – including a semi-final defeat in Euro 2016 – with four of those featuring a 1-0 HT scoreline either way.
  • Players to watch: France striker Antoine Griezmann has scored more goals against Germany than any other nation (four in six meetings), while in-form İlkay Gündoğan has found the net in three of Germany’s previous five international matches, all as the game’s second or third goalscorer.
  • Hot stat: Since the 2014 World Cup, France have always won their first match in a major competition, with each of those games featuring three goals precisely.
