Germany and France look evenly matched on their exploits at Euro 2022 and this semi-final clash is a tough one to call.
Les Bleues have probably been more entertaining in general play, but Die Nationelf have the edge in efficiency and past pedigree at major tournaments.
We’re struggling to split them and 3.1 for a draw at the end of normal time is our first Germany Women vs France Women prediction.
Germany Women Odds
Eight-time champions Germany are back on track after only making the quarter-finals in Holland five years ago.
Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s side have rattled off four straight victories during this competition, with 11 goals scored and none conceded.
Captain Alexandra Popp has scored in each of their triumphs, while Bayern Munich forward Klara Buhl has also caught the eye and was voted player of the match in the quarter-finals.
She said: “Everyone is in a great mood, we are very happy with the game and that we qualified, so we are all in a good mood and showing emotions.
“Of course, we want to reach the final, but we have to go step by step to reach that.”
This promises to be a battle between Germany’s power and the French flair, with an end-to-end encounter on the cards.
Looking at the 4.33 for a score draw worth the extra risk.
France Women Odds
France have had to overcome the loss of star striker Marie-Antoinette Katoto to injury but still managed to end their quarter-final hoodoo.
Les Bleues had crashed out at that stage in the last three renewals of this event but this time shaded holders Netherlands 1-0 after extra-time.
Corinne Diacre’s side dominated the Dutch for long periods of that tie but couldn’t capitalise on the numerous chances created.
Eventually, Eve Perisset successfully converted a 102nd-minute penalty to raise hopes of claiming a first major trophy.
“We’re here to build history,” declared Diacre. “The players here and the staff, we want to make history for ourselves, and there is still a bit of a way to go.
“We’ve reached a new level, but that’s not the end for us. We really want to reach the final. When we set out our ambitions, we were looking ahead to July 31.”
Wendie Renard remains a tower of strength at the back and France have the most creative talent at this tournament in Lyon winger Delphine Cascarino.
Katoto’s early exit has left them without a natural goalscorer, though, and that could ultimately count against them.
Let’s add 1.8 for Die Nationelf to qualify for the final to our Germany Women vs France Women betting tips.
GERMANY 2-0 Austria – Magull, Popp
FRANCE 1-0 Netherlands (AET) – Perisset
Head-to-head: France 1-0 Germany, France 0-1 Germany, France 3-0 Germany, Germany 4-0 France
