France vs Germany: Our Match Preview

Standard

France play Germany after seeing off Nigeria 2-0 and Germany are coming back on a nervy, unconvincing 2-1 victory over minnows Algeria. Tempos will be high and anger will be sky rocketing and these European heavyweights go head to head. France won 11 out of their 25 meetings against Germany, but have never won in the World Cup. This match is one of the most evenly matched Quarter Final Clash and a win by narrow margins is expected, unless something absolutely unforeseen occurs. Chill the drinks and stock the food, this will be a nail biting match.

 

Aaron Johnson’s Views:

Prediction: France 2 – 3 Germany

Man To Watch Out For: Thomas Müller

Weak Link – France’s inability to cause an aerial threat to the huge German defence

Dr. Joe N.H.’s Views:

Prediction: France 2 – 1 Germany

Man To Watch Out For – Mathieu Valbuena

Weak Link – Lack of pace in Germany’s backline

 

Food For Thought: Who will come up trumps? Thomas Muller or Karim Benzema

Last Meeting (2013): France (Valbuena) 1 – 2 Germany (Muller, Khedira)
