Germany v France Betting Tips

  • Draw after 60 minutes at 6/5 with Coral
  • Germany to win at 2/1 with Coral

France Favourites

France are marginally ahead in the betting, being priced at 9/5 with BetVictor. They make the Germans 19/10 to win in 90 minutes, while the draw is 2/1. Both sides are odds on to qualify for the next round, with Betfair pricing them both at 19/20 to make the final. Clearly punters are struggling to decide where their money is going on this game. Neither side will want to head home at this stage.

The French are under pressure to triumph on home soil, and they have a long unbeaten tournament run as hosts. It dates back through the 1998 World Cup, back to the 1984 Euros. If they can keep that going here, they’d be heavy favourites to lift another major honour. Didier Deschamps has already said that his side are up against the best side in the world, so the French face a massive task.

Germany Have Issues

The Germans haven’t quite hit the heights of 2014 at this tournament, if they had they’d be heavy favourites for this game. Mats Hummels is missing out with a suspension, while Mario Gomez is out of the tournament. With doubts over Sami Khedira and Bastian Schweinsteiger too, Joachim Low has to make a few changes. Luckily he has a deep squad at this disposal, which should see them keep their strong defensive shape.

The Germans hadn’t conceded a goal in the tournament before facing Italy, a run which lasted over four and a half games. Conceding from the penalty spot is no great shame either. They’ll be aiming to maintain that solidity in this game, against a France side who were struggling in front of goal before the quarters.

Cagey Opening

Iceland were far too open against France, which saw the hosts get a first half goal for the first time at the tournament. Now they’re stepping up to face a much better defence, we can’t see them making an early breakthrough here. Given how much is at stake, we’re expecting a cagey game. A draw after 60 minutes is our first tip at 6/5 with Coral.

The Germans have made a habit out of punishing tournament hosts. Since 1982 they’ve knocked out six host nations from major competitions. They punished Brazil two years ago, and we see them doing the same to France. We’re backing a German win at 2/1 with Coral.
