Germany head to France on the brink of being relegated from this tier of the Uefa Nations League after they suffered a 3-0 defeat at the hands of the Netherlands at the weekend. That defeat came at the hands of a team that hasn’t qualified for a competition in the last four years and shows the level of decline the German team has suffered over the past 12 months.
Germany were eliminated from the World Cup at the group stage after losing two group games, and they have defeated only Peru since that time. As a matter of fact, the Germans have won just 3 of their last 12 international games, and they would be short of confidence heading into this game with the World champions.
France has continued their dominance of World football after winning the World Cup in Russia. They recovered from almost suffering a shock home defeat at the hands of Iceland last week to earn a 2-2 draw, and they would be looking to keep that form going in this game.
They earned a goalless draw in Germany in the reverse of this fixture before beating the Netherlands. They have collected 4 points from two fixtures in this competition and a win here would almost certainly ensure qualification for the semifinals.
Germany picked up a 0-0 draw as these two played their first ever game in the Nations League last month. Germany have failed to win all four meetings with France since the 2014 World Cup.
