FRA vs GER Dream11: Football fans all across the globe are in for a treat, as Germany play hosts to France at the Allianz Arena for a Group F fixture at the Euro 2020. The World Champion France fell short to Portugal in Euro 2016, and will be eager to win the title this time around. However, Germany are European powerhouse as well, and do have the experience of delivering it on the big stage.
The last time the two teams met was in UEFA Nation League semi final, as Les Blues won the tie 2-1. Nevertheless, maximum points for either side later tonight could be pivotal, considering Portugal are in the same group as well.

That being said, we can expect the upcoming contest to be a blockbuster event..
