Our prediction for this Euro 2020 match:
There will be fireworks when France and Germany face each other at Allianz Arena in what is expected to be a close encounter. Les Tricolores did well to win the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and they are now on a quest to repeat the success at the European Championship finals. Kylian Mbappe is undisputedly the team’s key player, but the return of Karim Benzema to the national team will help Didier Deschamps’ troops improve their game as well.
New Bayern Munchen signing Dayot Upamecano has been left out of the squad. Joachim Low’s troops, on the other hand, aim to build on a 7-1 win over Latvia. The Germans have big ambitions for the upcoming showpiece tournament, and given their attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered. It has to be noted that both Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels returned to the squad.
Highlighted Player (Kylian Mbappé):
Kylian Mbappe is a French footballer who plays for Paris Saint-Germain as a forward. The French rising star began his youth career at AS Bondy and in 2013 he moved to AS Monaco. After making 12 appearances for Monaco B, Kylian Mbappe made his debut for the senior team in 2015. Mbappe quickly established himself as a regular goalscorer, with the teenager finding the net 15 times in 29 appearances in the Ligue 1 in the 2016/2017 season.
In 2017 he moved to fellow French club PSG on loan, with the option of making the deal permanent. Kylian Mbappe scored 13 goals in 27 appearances for les Parisiens in the 2017/2018 and it has to be noted that Unai Emery’s troops eventually won the national championship.
Speaking of his international career, Mbappe played an important role for France at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals, with the pacey rising star scoring a brace in a thrilling 4-3 win over Argentina in the last 16 of the showpiece tournament. The PSG attacker was born in Paris on December 20, 1998.
Highlighted Team (Germany):
Competing for major honours since 1900, Germany are now one of the leading national teams in the history of football, boasting no fewer than seven titles in their trophy cabinet. Oddly enough, die Mannschaft have won the four World Cups in regular intervals, having finished as champions in 1954, 1974, 1990 and 2014, while lifting European Championship trophies in 1972, 1980 and 1996.
And having also lost seven major finals, it is fair to say that Germany have challenged for the trophy at almost every single major tournament since 1954. There have been too many world-class players to count that have represented Germany so far, but it is Lothar Matthaus who holds the record for most caps, having featured in 150 matches, whereas Miroslav Klose is the top goalscorer with 71 goals in 137 outings.
Franz Beckenbauer, Gerd Muller, Rudi Voller, Jurgen Klinsmann and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge have all had important roles to play in the past, whereas the new generation has seen Philipp Lahm, Manuel Neuer, Mesut Ozil and Thomas Muller strut their stuff on international stage.
