The one thing we love most about the Euros is the heavyweights going head-to-head at an early stage. And, although it might be an overused phrase, Group F lives up to the ‘Group of Death’ doomsday billing and then some.
Reining World Cup winners France, ex-World Cup winners Germany and current UEFA European Football Champions Portugal were all drawn together, with Hungary also thrown in for good measure.
Star-studded France are looking to add another stellar piece of silverware to their trophy cabinet by securing the Euros crown.
But it’s not the first game anyone in their camp would have wanted.
Joachim Löw is looking to leave on a high, and you simply cannot ever discount Germany. After all, it’s what they want you to do.
On Tuesday, the giants lock horn – the biggest game of the opening weeks is sure to be a must-watch.
Here’s some top tips, facts and stats from the mouthwatering early meeting. Enjoy a close look at some of the best EURO 2020 (2021) football on offer this week with France vs Germany betting options at LV BET.
FRANCE VS GERMANY BETTING
Outright favourites of the competition and understandably so, you won’t find many EURO fans who think France are in without a serious shout. Since qualifying for the Euros, the World Cup winners have amassed an impressive record of 10 wins, two draws and only one loss.
And just when you thought they couldn’t get much stronger, Didier Deschamps has brought back Karim Benzema from the cold after a six-year exile from the national side.
Yes, admittedly, their entertainment levels have been questionable at moments, but it will take a very special side to stop Le Bleus.
Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema is 13/7 (2.85) to score at any point during the game if you fancy a real headline.
A steady 2-0 France opening match win is priced at an attractive 13/1 (14.00), but after all the build-up, could the game between the two international giants be a damp squib? We have the goalless draw at 35/4 (9.75).
It’s not often the Germans head into a summer tournament with very few tipsters talking them up as their favourites to win the competition.
“Never has there been so much pessimism surrounding the German team on its way to a major tournament,” said one top commentator last week.
The negativity around Die Mannschaft is not just down to the dreaded group full of big hitters they find themselves buried in. Locked in a current run of poor form with an ageing side and a coach on his way out, Germany are struggling to win over the sceptics ahead of their opener, even though the side should boast enough tournament know-how to get the job done this summer.
If you fancy Germany to shine as they did back in 2014, there’s no better moment to back the four-time World Cup winners.
Chelsea striker Timo Werner is 13/7 (2.85) to find his scoring boots and hit the net at any time.
