France take on Germany at Fussball Arena Munchen, where an exciting match is shaping up. It is one of 12 matches in round 1 of the group stages at the Euro 2020 and takes place this coming Tuesday. Les Bleus rank number 2 in the FIFA world rankings, thus indicating a close match against the 12th-placed Germans.
Prior to their first outing at the Euros, France are expected by the bookmakers to at least challenge for 1st place in their group. The world champions hammered their way to a powerful 1st place in qualifying for Euro 2020 and they are among an elite group considered favorites for the title.
Before the first match at the tournament, Germany are favorites with the bookmakers to get through to the next round as winners of the most terrifying group at the Euros. They have their eyes set on a title after a dismal World Cup in 2018. They last won the European Championship 25 years ago.
