Germany vs France predictions and betting tips for this weekend’s Nations League fixture in Munich – including the latest odds and bets in our tipsters’ betting preview. Will Germany bounce back from their horrific showing in the summer or will World Cup winners France put them to the sword?
It’s difficult to recall many worse trophy defences in recent years, although Italy’s performance in South Africa following their World Cup win four years earlier remains a decent yardstick. But there is now a lot of pressure on Joachim Loew’s side, particularly as his country’s fans are notoriously impatient.
If the last time these two sides met is anything to go by, then the neutrals are in for a cracker. Last November’s friendly was a 2-2 thriller and led many to believe that both countries would be participating in the forthcoming World Cup’s latter stages – half right, at least! Although the three fixtures prior to that ended with one team failing to register, I like the look of both teams to score here. German fans will be expectant and demand an attacking approach but France proved during the summer they are capable of winning games even after conceding one or two. Both teams to score is 8/11 with William Hill for our Germany vs France predictions, which will surely tempt more than a few.
One of the standout performers in Russia, Antonio Griezmann has gone from strength to strength ever since he famously (and perhaps cringeworthily) declared that he’d be staying at Atletico Madrid for the time being, at least. A regular scorer for both club and country, Griezmann’s contribution for Les Bleus was plain for all to see during the summer. Despite his undisputed prowess in the final third, Betfred are still wiling to offer 7/4 on him notching at any time so for our Germany vs France predictions. Snap that up!
Although I wouldn’t like to stick my neck on the line and pick a winner between these two, I do confidently predict that goals will be on the menu. Do you envisage a 0-0? Me neither! In fact, France and Germany have only ever served up one goalless stalemate when they’ve faced each other, so the signs are good. I’m amazed that Betfair offer even money on there being over 2.5 goals scored here and was partly tempted to advocate a more ambitious Germany vs France betting tip. At that price, though, I think backing over 2.5 goals is certainly worth a punt in its own right to round off our Germany vs France betting tips in this UEFA Nations League match!

World Cup winners or not, France are still not favourites for their inaugural Nations League clash against Germany. The hosts are a 6/4 shot with Betfair, while the Jules Rimet trophy holders a slightly lengthier 7/4 pop with Betfred. A draw is 12/5 with various firms, including Bet365.
Widely considered to be the best goalkeeper in the world, Manuel Neuer is unquestionably one of the first – if not the first – player on Germany’s team sheet when fit. Capped 79 times by his country in an era where competition between the sticks has been exceptionally high, his influence and commanding presence cannot be understated.
Chelsea and Leicester fans won’t be surprised to see N’Golo Kante singled out for individual praise, and now the whole planet is well and truly aware of the impact he has on whichever team he turns out for. Positionally astute, athletic and intelligent, Kante is now rightly considered one of the best midfielders in the world despite making his international debut just two years ago.
