France and Germany have drawn their last couple of encounters and another stalemate could be on the cards when they meet in the Nations League in Paris on Tuesday night.
Die Mannschaft have a mountain to climb in this competition following Saturday’s 3-0 defeat in Holland, but they were much the better team when it was 0-0 between these sides in Munich last month.
Les Bleus are coming off a poor friendly display versus Iceland and 11/4 for the scores to finish level is our initial France vs Germany prediction.
A Look At France’s Betting Odds
France looked set for an embarrassing loss in Guingamp on Thursday night when trailing 2-0 against Iceland with less than five minutes on the clock.
However, Holmar Orn Eyjolfsson’s own goal and a Kylian Mbappe penalty in the final minute rescued a draw for Les Bleus.
That continued a moderate run of form for Didier Deschamps and his men, though, who seem to have rested on their laurels since a superb success at Russia 2018.
Goalkeeper Alphonse Areola had to be outstanding on his international debut to keep out Germany at Allianz Arena and they only scraped past Holland 2-1 at this venue.
Les Bleus were extremely disciplined when lifting the World Cup this summer, but some of that outstanding work ethic seems to have deserted them.
Looking at the France vs Germany odds, we reckon 19/4 for a draw at half-time and full-time is another tempting option.
A Look At Germany’s Betting Odds
Germany are clearly in a transitional period following their World Cup flop, but we feel they have since shown more encouraging signs than the bare results suggest.
Two late goals in Amsterdam gave the Netherlands a very flattering result, with Die Mannschaft having almost 60 per cent of possession and firing in 21 shots on goal.
Thomas Muller forced Jasper Cillessen to make a smart save, Mats Hummels saw his header blocked on the line and Leroy Sane squandered a great chance when the score was just 1-0.
Joachim Low’s side had previously edged out Peru 2-1 and dominated for long periods at home to France, with Marco Reus, Hummels, Muller and Matthias Ginter all denied by PSG keeper Areola.
Despite suffering five losses in nine matches, we’re not ready to give up on Die Mannschaft just yet and 91/100 they avoid defeat here is added to our France vs Germany betting tips.
Timo Werner has been in decent form for RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga and 2/1 for him to score at anytime also appeals.
