France vs. Germany Predictions and Preview
Group A1 of the UEFA Nations League continues on Tuesday night with world champions France hosting Germany, the previous World Cup winners, in Paris (the Netherlands are the other side in the group).
The form of these two sides contrasts sharply going into this fixture. The hosts are champions of the world, a trophy previously held by their opponents in Paris, and are currently on a 14-match unbeaten run stretching back to March, of which they have won nine.
Joachim Low may still find himself somewhat fortunate to be in a job following a disastrous World Cup which saw his side exit at the group stages following defeats to Mexico and South Korea. Indeed, Die Mannschaft have tasted victory just three times in their last 12 outings.
This is a potentially pivotal match in the group with Germany (currently 1 point) realistically needing a win to remain in contention to win the group, with a home victory putting France (currently 4 points) in a seemingly unassailable position.
Due to the contrasting form, France are favourites to win at 9/10 with Germany at 3/1 and the draw at 27/10.
These games are typically low-scoring, cagey affairs and so under 2.5 goals at 11/10 may offer value, with fewer than 1.5 at 3/1.
A ‘double chance’ on Germany to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 1 while an France win/draw outcome is at 2/9.
If you fancy the home side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 9/5.
One to watch for France: Kylian Mbappe has scored in three of his last four international appearances including as a late substitute in France’s 2-2 draw with Iceland on Thursday. One of the most in-form players in world football, he is 17/10 to score here.
One to watch for Germany: Timo Werner has already netted eight international goals in a fledgling international career and has netted 38 Bundesliga goals since the start of the 2016/17 campaign and is 11/5 to find the net in this game.
Long shot: This game finished 0-0 just last month while in the last 13 meetings, at least one side has failed to score in nine of those games. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are available at 13/1.
