France vs Germany Preview

France vs Germany

Competition – UEFA Nations League

Stadium – Stade de France

Date: 16th October 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Germany have been in a sorry state since the end of the World Cup.

In truth, there weren’t that impressive at the World Cup and their slump is set to continue as they play World champions France in this game.

The visitors were beaten 3-0 at Amsterdam in their last game.

The Netherlands who defeated them had not made an appearance in a competition for the last 4 years, and that shows partially how bad things have become for Germany.

The Germans are expectedly rebuilding after that poor showing at the World Cup, however, since the competition ended they have only beaten Peru.

Their loss to Holland last time out means that they could be relegated from this tier with another loss here against France.

They have won just three of their last 12 international games and Joachim Low could be given the boot if things don’t improve.

France have continued their fine form after winning the World Cup in Russia.

They are hunting for another trophy, and on current form, they could become the first team to win the Euro Nations League.

The French men currently have four points from their opening two games and a win here would put them in a good position to qualify for the semifinals before they play against the Netherlands next month.
