Two European heavyweights go head to head as France and Germany face off in their first game of Euro 2020.

The term ‘Group of Death’ is certainly overused, but entirely applicable this summer as France, Germany and Portugal were all drawn together (along with Hungary) in Group F.

A star-studded France are out to add to their 2018 World Cup triumph by adding the Euros crown, with Didier Deschamps boasting the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba in a squad brimming with talent.

As for Germany, they are in between cycles, but Joachim Low - who will step down as Nationalmannschaft coach at the end of the tournament - still has quality all over the park.

France vs Germany: Predictions

While France haven't lost any of their last five matches against Germany, it is important to remember that this game will be played in Munich and Germany have held France to draws in the last two matches played on German soil. France are the form favourites though with five wins and one draw from their last six matches, compared to Germany's three wins, two defeats and one draw. However, we expect Germany to use the home advantage to nullify France's attackers with a strong defensive display.

Under 2.5 Goals

Four of the last six meetings between these two countries have produced under 2.5 goals and we're expecting another tight and tense affair in the pair's opening game of the group stage. Germany held France to a goalless draw when the two teams last locked horns in Munich and three of France's last five matches have witnessed fewer than three goals being scored.

0-0 Draw

France have kept clean sheets in each of their last four fixtures and when these two sides last went head-to-head in Munich, that game ended in a goalless draw. We have only seen both teams score in one of the last six encounters between these two nations and we're expecting that pattern to continue on Tuesday, for what we believe will be a very close encounter.
