Germany and France, winners of two of the last three World Cups, meet in Dortmund on Tuesday night for a friendly in preparation of next summer’s Euros in Germany.
Germany v France odds
Germany are in the uncommon position of heading into a home international fixture as underdogs, with Betfair pricing a home win at 15/8 in their first match since the sacking of Hansi Flick as manager last weekend.
France are in a much more stable position and have won all five of their Euro qualifiers so far, and make the short trip to the west of Germany as 5/4 favourites. A draw is priced at 5/2.

Germany v France preview
Since the start of their most recent Nations League campaign just 15 months ago, Germany have won only four of their last 16 matches in all competitions under the treble-winning former Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick.
Three of those victories have come against Oman, Costa Rica and Peru, and of those six defeats in that time frame, two have come at the hands of Japan, and others have come against the likes of Colombia, Poland and Hungary.
Just nine months away from a home Euros, a tournament no nation has won more times than them, Germany have lost five of the seven matches they’ve played since their group stage exit at the 2022 World Cup, winning just once.
Three defeats in a row, the most recent of which a 4-1 thrashing at home to Japan on Saturday night, caused Flick to lose his job and become the first manager ever to be sacked as Germany manager.
Recently appointed sporting director Rudi Voller will take charge of Tuesday’s match against France, his first time in the dugout managing a side since 2005.
France, on the other hand, continue to impress as one of the world’s best teams in recent years, having reached back to back World Cup finals, and currently hold a 100% record in qualifying for Euro 2024 across five games, in which they’re yet to concede a goal.
Didier Deschamps’ side most recent win, 2-0 at home against Ireland, means they currently hold a six point lead at the top of Group B, where one more win will all but confirm their place in Germany for next summer’s Euros with two matches to spare.
Germany are winless in their last six matches against France, losing on four of those occasions, the most recent of which being a 1-0 defeat in the Euro 2020 group stage in Munich.
France’s last defeat against Germany came in the quarter finals of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, losing 1-0 as the three-time European champions went on to lift their fourth World Cup trophy.
Germany v France betting tips
Betfair have boosted a small handful of their odds ahead of Tuesday’s match in Dortmund, which include Kylian Mbappe, arguably the best player on the planet right now, to score a brace which has now been boosted to 7/1.
Another boost on offer is for PSG’s new £82m man Randal Kolo Muani and Germany and Bayern Munich winger Serge Gnabry each to put their name on score sheet at 9/1.
