The final and most enthralling of the first round of group games is set to be played at 8pm in Munich as world champions France take on the side that they took the title from, Germany.

France are the favourites to win the Euros and it is not difficult to see why. They are stacked with world class players in every position from centre back to the strike force.

If there is one position where the gulf in class is most evident it is up front with France boasting one of the best players in the world in PSG’s Kylian Mbappe.

The supporting cast of Antoine Griezmann and the returning Karim Benzema should prove incredibly potent during France’s Euro campaign.

Germany, on the other hand, look a little light in the forward positions, particularly for strikers.

Germany are certainly not looked upon with the same trepidation as they were years ago and you would have to go back a long way to find the last time Germany entered a tournament with so little expected of them.

Following a very disappointing World Cup a few years back, manager Joachim Lowe has failed to instil any great confidence that the nation will threaten the favourites this time around either.

In their last six games, they fell to a shocking 6-0 defeat to Spain and a humiliating 2-1 home loss against minnows North Macedonia.

But maybe that lack of expectation will suit them.

Germany still have a host of good players in their squad and should certainly not be written off, but they will have to be at their absolute best to trouble this French powerhouse.
