The opening round of the UEFA EURO 2020 has been filled with exciting action with fans and punters enjoying the ups and downs of international soccer in top tournament play.
Tonight’s game between France and Germany [9PM SAST] could be the one that we’ve all been waiting for as two of the potential winners of the tournament square off in Group F !
Current World Cup holders France go into the game as slight favourites despite the game taking place at the Allianz Arena in Munich.
This is partly down to France’s position as pre-tournament favourites to win the competition, but is also helped by their strong record against Germany in Germany. They haven’t lost in their last five matches on German soil (W3 D2) and will be brimming with confidence heading into the encounter.
Since FIFA World Cup 2014, France are also the leading European team in terms of performance at major tournaments (World Cup and Euros) where they have won 14 of their 19 games. This betters Belgium (13 wins in 17) and Germany (10 wins in 16) on the form table.
Group F could hold the key to who lifts the trophy come the finals with current holders Portugal taking on Hungary in the earlier game. Will they be able to repeat their heroics from France in 2018? Only time will tell.
