France vs. Germany is the most highly anticipated match of the first round. It’s the match that has the potential to decide a lot of things in the so-called group of death, and as such, it deserves our utmost attention!
🤩 Group F takes centre stage! Game predictions?
— UEFA EURO 2020 (@EURO2020) June 15, 2021
There are just two matches set to be played today. Both are group F; Portugal is opening the day up with Hungary in Budapest, and France is going up against Germany in Munich. Hungary and Germany will have the home-court advantage today, that’s for sure, but we still don’t know if that’s going to be enough of a boost to carry them against current World and EURO champions.
UEFA EURO 2020 Betting Predictions
We’ve had four days of splendid soccer action to watch, boys and girls! We’ve had several outstanding matches (and goals) too, with the Netherlands vs. Ukraine proudly standing as the most entertaining match thus far.
However, group F is just about to start, and I have a feeling both of these matches will be packed with excitement. But, there’s not a lot of time to waste here! With roughly 10 hours before the start of the second match, our France vs. Germany betting predictions have to hurry up!
France Betting Preview
As you all know, France are the current world champions! They’ve beaten Croatia in the 2018 Russia World Cup grand final and asserted themselves as the best soccer team in the world. And rightly so – the sheer quality of the French national selection is absolutely ridiculous… and I’m not even talking about their starting roster.
France has the deepest pool of top-quality players in the world! I kid you not – if we could slap together two more selections from players outside of France’s main 23, both selections would be forces to be reckoned with on this EURO. I’m not even exaggerating – players like Theo Hernandez, Upamecano, Konate, Camavinga, Lacazette, and many more, are nowhere near France’s main 23.
But, enough about that, let’s focus back on the players that’ll be playing against Germany later today! Obviously, Kylian Mbappe is the first name on the team sheet. The French wunderkind is the prime candidate for EURO 2020 golden boot. He’s quick, agile, has that special knack for goals, and can finish as the best of them!
You can bet he’s going to be getting quality balls forward all night long. With the likes of Paul Pogba and N’golo Kante leading the midfield, Mbappe won’t have to worry about chance creation being an issue.
Hugo Lloris between the posts knows most of Germany’s goalscoring talents. Whether we’re talking about Timo Werner or Kai Havertz, Lloris will be aware of the danger!
Germany Betting Preview
What’s there to be said about Germany? Well, for starters, some of their players are in peak form. They have a bunch of Champions League winners in their starting roster, including the likes of Havertz, Werner, and Rudiger. Their astonishing season for Chelsea ought to mean a great deal against the current world champions, France.
But, there’s a slight downside too! Even though Germany’s current track record isn’t half bad, their last major soccer event was an absolute catastrophe. Remember the 2018 World Cup in Russia when Germany failed to get out of the group stage? Yep, some of these players have a lot of pressure on their shoulders, and playing in the group of death won’t be easy for them.
Imagine this set of players; imagine this German team failing to get through group stages of major soccer competitions twice in a row?
On the bright side, group F could be one of four groups with all three teams qualifying for the knockout stage. It all depends on the points’ disposition following all three match days, as well as results in other groups. But, theoretically, a chance for Portugal, France, and Germany all to qualify for the knockout stage does exist!
With those words, we’ve reached the final pieces of our France vs. Germany picks puzzle! Let’s wrap everything up, shall we!?
France vs. Germany Betting Predictions
Even though both teams have exceptional sets of players, France’s depth ought to do the trick here. Deschamps’ rotations, in case things don’t go as planned, offer much more breathing space than Lew’s side.
But, despite that, I’m still not confident in France winning this one… especially since the match is played in the very heart of Germany. However, I strongly believe we’re going to see many goals on this one. That said, the logical option to go for is both teams to score. At -138, the value is there, that’s for sure!
The likes of Mbappe and Benzema will find the back of Germany’s net; the same can be said about Havertz, Werner, and the company too… so I see no other valid option other than both teams to score here!
