The champions of the world, France, are playing against Germany, who are in a desperate need of points in the UEFA Nations League. The match takes place at the Stade de France in Paris, which is the largest football stadium in France. It has the capacity of over 76,000 and a good crowd is expected on Tuesday evening when France are playing against one of their biggest rivals of all times. What to expect from this game? Find out in this France vs Germany match preview!
The mere fact that they won the World Cup this summer shows how good this team is. But, not only that, they’re also in a fantastic form, which stretches back for months. In fact, they lost only one game this year and it was a friendly they played against Colombia in March.
Two years ago, they failed to win the Euro trophy, after losing to Portugal in the final of the Euros 2016. But, they’re very motivated to fix that mistake by winning the cup in 2020. But, before that, they want to do well in the Nations League as well.
And so far, they’ve been on the right track to achieving that goal. They did play draw with Germany in the first round, in a game that was played at the Allianz Arena in Munich. But, in the next round, they beat the Netherlands in front of their own crowd at the Stade de France.
France again play at the same stadium and are expected to get a huge support against their arch-rivals. That should make their job even easier, considering that they’re considered huge favorites not only because their players’ quality, but also for the fact that Germany have been struggling recently.
The team that won the World Cup 2014 failed to go past the group stage at the World Cup 2018. And their poor run continues to worry their fans. They’re currently on the bottom place in the Group 1 of the League A, behind France and Netherlands. And the reason is that they lost to the Netherlands 3:0 last Saturday.
Germany did have the ball in their possession for most of the match and even had significantly more goal chances than the Dutch, but failed to score even a single goal. The biggest problem here is that it doesn’t look like their form is gonna improve massively any time soon.
One of the reasons is that most of Germany players play for Bayern Munich, a team that’s been struggling lately in Bundesliga. What this means is that their minds might not be totally focused on the national team. On top of that, it seems that the Germans aren’t too thrilled with the new format. Even their manager Joachim Low has expressed doubts about the need for the Nations League.

France vs Germany Match Prediction
France are huge favorites in my eyes. Not only are they better, but the atmosphere in the locker-room is at a much higher level than in the case of their opponents. Plus, France play in Paris, where they’re without a defeat in official games for years.
