After suffering a heartbreaking final loss to Portugal in 2016, France return to the showcase with another set of quality players who are out to repeat the team’s historic success in the 2018 World Cup.

France were dominant in qualification, winning eight of 10 games and losing just one. Didier Deschamps’ side found the net on 25 occasions (2.5 goals per game) and conceded just six, highlighting their strength in both defense and attack. The return of Karim Benzema comes as a huge boost for the side brimming with talent.

Germany’s Euro 2016 journey came to an end at the hands of France and will surely seek revenge in this upcoming tie. Die Mannschaft were excellent in the qualification round, winning seven out of eight games, scoring a commendable total of 30 goals and conceding just seven.

France to win tight contest

The two teams have an exceptional lineup of stars who will no doubt give it their all but France will likely be the victors in what could be a tight one.

France possess a lot of quality all over the pitch. In attack, they can rely on the deadly combination of Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema and Antoine Griezmann with N’golo Kante and Paul Pogba supporting from the center of the pitch.

Germany would have to find ways to stop the front three and control the tempo of the game to stand any chance of winning.
