After the bad performance in the World Cup in Russia, the DFB team starts again. On Thursday, Germany will meet the world champion from France. The French arrive with a new star on their chest and a big smile. In the odds comparison, Germany is slightly favored. Also, in the betting tip, we see the German team slightly ahead. The match will kick off at 8:45 PM CET on Thursday at the Allianz Arena in Munich.
Germany needs change – Three new additions to the squad
Germany suffered! The world champion of 2014 delivered a weak performance at the World Cup in Russia and got knocked out in the group stage. Coach Loew remained in office. With Oezil and Gomez, only two players announced their drop out. Loew also renounced his nomination on Khedira. With Kehrer, Schulz, and Havertz the national coach has appointed three new players in the squad of the national team. Whether this is the necessary change, will remain questionable. Immediately after the weak World Cup they now duel with the world champion from France. Loew will not be able to change that much in the short time. It is important that the attitude of the team is right, the quality is undoubtedly there. At the World Cup, the DFB team lacked the mentality. It will be exciting to see Germany play in the first match of the UEFA Nations League against France.
France with strong team – Slight outsiders in the betting tip
France started at the World Cup with an extremely young team. The team around Mbappe, Pogba, and Griezmann played very strong and were able to earn the title in the end. As reigning World Champion, the French are the hunted, with which they will take on a new role. In the UEFA Nations League, Equipe Tricolore meets Germany. We can look forward to an exciting showdown. Coach Deschamps will probably let his best players play. The last meeting with Germany can be dated back to almost a year. The friendly ended with a 2:2 draw. Also, in the upcoming game, we expect a close match. In the betting tip, we see Germany slightly favored.
