class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>With Low's men looking well short of their best recently, Al Hain-Cole is backing Deschamps' talented world champions to kick off with a big win
World champions France will begin their bid for Euro 2020 glory with a heavyweight clash against Germany in Munich on Tuesday.
Les Bleus come into this tournament as favourites after lifting the World Cup three years ago, as well as finishing runners-up at the last European Championship back in 2016.
France vs Germany Latest Odds
Having won three and lost none of their last five matches against this opposition, they are slight 17/10 (2.70) favourites with bet365 to lay down a significant marker by coming out on top at the Allianz Arena.
Joachim Low’s men endured a humiliating group stage elimination at the last World Cup but are available at 7/4 (2.75) to go some way to putting that behind them by pulling off a big win here.
The last two meetings between this duo on German soil have both resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 21/10 (3.10) on them cancelling each other out once again.
France vs Germany Team News
Karim Benzema should be fit to start despite coming off injured in the final warm-up game against Bulgaria, although Kurt Zouma will need to be assessed.
Jonas Hofmann is unlikely to feature as he recovers from a knee injury, while this match will also come too soon for Leon Goretzka as he struggles with a muscle issue.
France vs Germany Preview
Having recorded a memorable semi-final victory over this opposition on home turf at Euro 2016, Didier Deschamps’ men will be confident of asserting their superiority once again.
While they have gone from strength-to-strength since suffering a painful defeat against Portugal in the final of that competition, Die Mannschaft comes into this tournament with confidence at an uncharacteristically low ebb.
As well as their World Cup 2018 failure, the three-times Euros winners have since recorded just two victories from 10 UEFA Nations League fixtures – suffering a heavy 6-0 defeat to Spain in their final match last November.
France vs Germany Tips and Predictions
Having also come unstuck 2-1 at home to North Macedonia in their most recent World Cup qualifier back in March, it is hard to see the Germans handling a France side that has looked extremely dominant in recent years – with those 17/10 (2.70) odds on a French victory looking well worth backing.
