The French team will look for the redemption as the face the mighty germans who eliminated them at the quarter finals of the world cup in Brazil 2 years ago. The French team has never been able to get past the German juggernaut in any competitive tournament but this team which is loaded with some supremely talented young lands may change the thing of past. The French team will have to put everything on the line against the mighty germans that have been impressive and have only conceded a single goal during the whole tournament.
Germany vs France: Can the Host Break the German?
The German team looks in great trouble before the start of the match as their striker who had reignited his form in last few matches is out of the whole Euros and they also have their leader in the defense Matt Hummels suspended. Prior to that Bastian Schweinsteiger is also a doubt for the match which will force low to make up few changes. Gotze can be back in the team along with Draxler who will star in the starting eleven. Bendikt Howedes is the most likely contender to play the role of matt Hummels.
On the contrasting zone everything is brilliant for the French team as they are not suffering from any injury problem and will also welcome Adil Rami and N’Golo Kante into the team as they missed the last encounter due to suspensions.
Form so Far
The German team looked bit unconvincing in the starting matches of the tournament and were criticized specially for their performance against the Polish team which ended in a stalemate but after that they regained their form with the introduction of Mario Gomez and have looked rampant. Their confidence will also be on sky high as they eliminated a brilliant Italy, the “bogey” team that had haunted them for years.
The French team had the same group stage like that of Germany as they were saved by the brilliance of brilliance of Dimitri Payet and some late goals but were completely blatant against the Swiss team but they do regain their full strength as Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba came back to the form. They came in this match with the stunning win against the Iceland team and will be high on confidence. These both teams journey in this tournament has been almost equivalent and there is nothing to separate between the two of them.
How the match will go
This match to me looks like an evenly matched encounter and the winner of this match will surely be lifting the trophy as they have an unconvincing Portugal waiting for them in the finals. The midfields of both the teams have been blessed with some brilliant talent but the German team has the experience of playing such high voltage which could give them an extra edge over their opponents but the German team too will have to face the Sizzling counters by the French team which relies much on their pace. The germane team will have to deal with the Griezmann factor which can take the match away from them and Dimitri Payet can also be a man to watch. The biggest problem for the German team will be reinforcing for the first team players that are bound to miss this game.
Verdict- Germany through after penalties
Well this will be the match of the Euros as there is nothing that separates these two teams as both have some inedible attacking front and the defenses but the real factor that will come into play for this match will be the experience of the German team.,
