Welcome to our France vs Germany predictions, head To head and preview at the 2014 World Cup Quarter-finals. Both teams are previous winners of the World Cup and both teams have looked in good form. While Germany has grabbed the headlines, France has been equally impressive and have moved stealthily towards their ultimate goal of lifting the World Cup in Brazil.

Recent Form

France have won four and drawn one of their last 5 matches. The first of these was a friendly against Jamaica who they thumped 8-0. In the World cup they have won 3 and drawn one match.

Germany too have a 4 wins and one drawn record. Their form in friendlies before the World Cup was a bit disappointing, but as always the Germans excel in Tournaments and this time around it is no different.

Road to Glory

France beat Honduras 3-0 in their opening match, and followed up with a 5-2 win against Switzerland – a goal fest if ever there was one. Then followed that snore draw of 0-0 against Ecuador. However they bounced back in the first knock out round with a spritely 2-0 win over the Nigerians.

Germany set tongues at the World Cup wagging with their 4-0 demolition of Portugal in their opening match, but did they peak too soon? They then slipped to a disappointing 2-2 draw against Ghana, where they had to come from behind to secure the draw. For many this was one of the best matches of the World Cup. What is it with Germany and a dip in form for the second group game? They then secured a 1-0 win against a gallant USA, to qualify out of the group. They were then pretty ordinary against Algeria in a 0-0 draw, but scored 2 goals in extra time to secure their progression and send Algeria home.

Head 2 Head

These teams have played each other 10 times in all. France has won 5, there have been two draws and Germany has won three. However all the matches have been friendlies, so it’s debatable how important those statistics are. On face level it does look that France are Germany’s bugbear, but we all know how Germany under perform in friendlies.

Team News

France: Sakho was injured in the Ecuador match and is unlikely to be available for selection.
Germany: Mustafi, Hummels and Podolski all picked up knocks and are a question mark for this game.
