Competition – UEFA Nations League

Stadium РAllianz Arena

Date: 6th September 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

After having contrasting fortunes at the World Cup, these European giants face off against each other in another show of supremacy as the UEFA Nations League kicks off.

Germany were dismal at the last World Cup and were shockingly eliminated at the group stage despite being placed in a group that we all expected them to come out on top.

There have been a lot of controversies after that World Cup with Mesut Ozil ultimately resigning however Joachim Loew has kept his job and German fans expect him to make them rise again.

France went to the World Cup as one of the favourites and came back as champions.

It is obvious to see that the French team is still in celebration mood ahead of this game.

Several of their players have already returned to form in this new domestic season, and they should be ready for the fight with the Germans here after Didier Deschamp has named almost the same team from the finals.

Loew has clearly also kept faith his German stars despite their poor performances at the World, with the absence of Sami Khedira and the presence of Leroy Sane the only major change.

These teams have played 6 times in the past 6 years and France have won 3 and lost 2.

Germany beat France on their way to winning the World Cup in 2014, while France gained revenge in the semifinal of Euro 2016.

Surprisingly, bookmakers make Germany very slight favourites to come out on top in this tie however the odds are extremely tight and there is no doubt many punters will be rushing to back France given their performance at the World Cup.
