Heavyweights France and Germany go head-to-head on Tuesday night in what is one of the most highly-anticipated games of Euro 2020‘s group stage.
Didier Deschamps’ side are the reigning world champions and will be full of confidence, while Die Mannschaft have endured a run of mixed results ahead of this meeting in Munich.
All signs point towards an entertaining encounter, with both sides unlikely to be able to ease themselves into the tournament given the daunting list of opponents within Group F.
An array of attacking talent is set to be on show, but a midfield battle containing the likes of N’Golo Kante, Joshua Kimmich and İlkay Gündoğan may well decide who manages to take home all three points.
