Semi Final 2 - France vs Germany

Recommended Posts

Quote

Gemany coach Joachim Löw has cause to be wary of France's exciting forwards, while Didier Deschamps has vowed that the hosts will "give all we have" against "the best side in the world".

  • Germany take on hosts France in Marseille for a spot in the final
  • The winners will play Portugal at the Stade de France on Sunday
  • Germany defeated Les Bleus 1-0 in the 2014 World Cup quarter-finals
  • They also got the better of France in the semi-finals of the 1982 and 1986 World Cups
  • The hosts have not beaten Germany at a major tournament since 1958


Possible line-ups
Germany: Neuer; Kimmich, Boateng, Höwedes, Hector; Kroos, Schweinsteiger; Draxler, Özil, Götze; Müller.
Out: Hummels (suspended), Gomez (thigh), Khedira (groin)
Doubtful: none

  • Benedikt Höwedes is set to deputise for the suspended Mats Hummels at centre-half, with Joshua Kimmich filling in at right-back. Bastian Schweinsteiger's fitness is a big boost; Thomas Müller should lead the line.

France: Lloris; Sagna, Umtiti, Koscielny, Evra; Pogba, Matuidi; Sissoko, Griezmann, Payet; Giroud.
Out: none
Doubtful: none

  • Didier Deschamps could restore Adil Rami in central defence after a ban. A reversion to 4-3-3 and recall for N'Golo Kanté cannot be discounted should Deschamps decide 4-2-3-1 is overly attacking.

 

Form guide (all competitions, most recent first)
Germany: DWWDWWLWLL
France: WWDWWWWWWL

Did You Know?
The nations have met 27 times, Germany recording nine wins to France's 12. Their four games at final tournaments have ended in one win for France, a draw and two Germany victories, most recently a 1-0 success in the 2014 FIFA World Cup quarter-finals.
