France and Germany will start their EURO2020 campaign on Tuesday in one of the outstanding group stage games.
Many have Les Bleus as their tournament favorites, which is hardly surprising given their talent in the squad. Didier Deschamps’ men have a difficult group to overcome as both Germany and defending champions Portugal are on their way to the final.
France is expected to compete on the 4-3-1-2 system, similar to the style they used to win the World Cup in 2018.
Tottenham keeper Hugo Lloris will lead the squad with Benjamin Pavard, Lucas Hernandez, Raphael Varane and Prenel Kimpembe, who had a good season at PSG, who are expected to play at the back.
In midfield, Man Utd star Paul Pogba will provide the attack drive, while Champions League hero N’Golo Kante will provide cover (and will be across the park in general). Corentin Tolisso is expected to start in midfield after impressing with the team recently.
In attack, Antoine Griezmann will act in the gap between midfield and the likely pairing Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema. Real Madrid striker Benzema returns to the national team after years in the wild. He suffered a minor injury in a friendly against Bulgaria but is expected to shake it off before Tuesday’s game.
Given their weak form recently, Germany will strive for a solid tournament in major finals. Coach Joachim Low has switched his system to a 3-4-3 formation as his team tries to exit the group stage after failing at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Manuel Neuer is still one of the best in goal and will be behind an expected defense by Matthias Ginter, Mats Hummels and Antonio Rüdiger. The trio all had impressive seasons with their club – Borussia Mönchengladbach, Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea.
Joshua Kimmich will stand on the right and deliver the flanks into the French penalty area. On the opposite flank will most likely be Robin Gosens of Atalanta. Toni Kroos and Ilkay Gündogan from Man City will occupy the central midfield, both of whom have had a successful season with their clubs.
Back on the international stage is Thomas Müller, who scored 19 goals in the last two Bundesliga seasons. He is expected to start at the center of a trio that includes Kai Havertz and Serge Gnabry. The top three are expected to switch sides during the game.
Both teams are full of talent and France have the offensive players in Mbappe and Griezmann to harm the German. Griezmann won the Golden Boot at the European Championships in 2016 and scored a double in the 2-1 win against the Germans in the Nations League in October 2018.
However, a quick start for the Germans presents France with a difficult task. Low’s side are no strangers to early goals as they have scored each of their last six wins within the first 25 minutes.
According to Dream Island, both sides are expected to be very careful, but France is very likely to remain undefeated in the group of death.
