Germany came through a qualifying group which contained Netherlands and Northern Ireland as the two main rivals for the top two qualifying positions. They could not have asked for a better start as Germany defeated Netherlands 3-2 away from home and this placed them in early command of the group. Despite suffering a 4-2 defeat in the reverse fixture against the Dutch, Germany followed this with a good 2-0 away win against Northern Ireland which is always a difficult place to play and get a result.
The group is incredibly difficult - you have the reigning European and world champions, then Germany, as well as the team that will come from the play-offs. Every team will be pushed to the limit from the beginning. The first game against France: they are a very experienced team, they've played the same way for the last three or four years, which doesn’t make our challenge any easier. - Joachim Löw after the groups were drawn, UEFA official website
Germany finished top of the group; 2 points clear of 2nd place Netherlands. They reached the semi-final of the 2016 European Championship before being defeated by the French. However, their most recent major tournament ended in disappointment as Germany were eliminated at the group stage of the 2018 World Cup.
This experience should make them aware of just how important it is to take something from this match. Playing in Munich should work to their advantage and all three of Germany's group matches will take place at the Allianz Arena. Having failed to defeat France in their last 5 meetings, perhaps it is the fact that this game is taking place in Germany is what makes the France vs Germany odds fall in favour of the hosts. Continue below as we take a look at the French in the next section of our France vs Germany tips and predictions.
2. France vs Germany Preview
France were handed a tough draw in their qualifying group for the 2020 European Championship. The French are always going to be favourites to qualify for a major tournament but being drawn alongside Iceland and Turkey meant it was not going to be easy. France soon realised this as they lost 2-0 in Turkey in their third match of the group and they were also held to a draw at home by the Turks. However, beating Iceland both home and away help the French to finish 2 points clear of Turkey at the top of the group.
Nonetheless, it was not a vintage qualifying campaign by France which was summed up in their 2-1 home win over Moldova towards the end of the group. France were actually losing this game after 9 minutes and did not equalise until the 25th minute, eventually getting the winner in the 79th minute.
It is perhaps this type of performance plus the fact the game is being played in Germany which is made the French the outsiders in the Germany vs France odds. We have more predictions for France vs Germany and information about where to watch Germany vs France.
