World cup winners France will face Germany on Wednesday in Munich. France vs Germany is one of the many entertaining fixtures that the group of death will provide. France is in red hot form and is clear favourites in this tournament. However, Germany has been ever so disappointing since their World cup triumph in 2014. Hansi Flick is taking over the team after the Euros which means this is Joachim Low’s last chance at Die Mannschaft.

France vs Germany: the recent form of both teams
France surprisingly lost to Turkey in Euro qualifiers but that did not create any problem for their qualification. The World cup champs will get an early chance to avenge their Euro 2016 finals defeat as they drew themselves in the group of death consisting of Portugal, Germany and Hungary. They performed exceptionally well in the two friendlies against Wales and Bulgaria defeating both the teams 3-0. They have won 5 of their last 6 games with just a draw on one occasion.

On the other hand, Germany had few rough patches in recent times. A shameful 6-0 defeat against Spain followed by a 2-1 defeat against North Macedonia put the European giants in a demoralising state. Although they put seven past Lativa in a recent friendly, their form at the biggest stage remains in a doubt. Germany has been very inconsistent winning just three of their last six games, lost two and drew one.
