France vs Germany: June 15, UEFA Euro 2020 Match Prediction
Date: June 15th, 2021
Venue: Allianz Arena, Germany.
Defending world champions France take on much-fancied Germany in arguably the tie of the opening round of Euro 2020 fixtures.
Both sides have tasted both European Championships and World Cup glory in recent years and they will see this as a chance to get their respective campaigns off to a flying start.
Euro 2016 Result: Runners Up
Having lost out in the final at Euro 2016, France will be eager to go one better at Euro 2020.
Their World Cup win in Russia is now a distant memory, having beat Croatia in the final in July 2018 and despite minimal changes to their starting XI, they don’t appear to be the same threat they once were.
Hugo Lloris remains a stalwart in goal for Les Blues, whilst Rafael Varane and Prensel Kimpembe are the preferred centre back pairing.
Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante invariably forge a strong relationship in central midfield whilst Thomas Lemar and Kingsley Coman are very dangerous in wide areas.
Antonine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe are two of the standout strikers in Europe and France will be in contention if they fire.
Euro 2016 Result: Semi-Finals
Germany are always a side to contend with in major tournaments and having missed out at the 2018 World Cup, they will be raring to go here at Euro 2020.
Jochim Low remains in charge of the German side, that looked to be in transition in recent years but will be hoping into their stride quickly this summer.
Manuel Neuer remains the first choice in goal for Germany, with Antonio Rudiger and Matthias Ginter look set to deputise in central defence.
Joshua Kimmich is metronomic in midfield, whilst Ilkay Gundogan and Kai Havertz have a habit of popping up with important goals.
Leroy Sane is always a threat, along with fellow winger Serge Gnabry whilst Timo Werner is a threat in any game he plays.
