KEY STATS

  • Germany are unbeaten in their previous four competitive matches against France (W3 D1 – the draw was at the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup finals in Canada which resulted in a penalty shoot-out victory for Germany)
  • Germany have won each of their two previous Women’s EURO matches against France (3-0 2005 group stage, 5-1 2009 group stage)
  • Germany are through to a record tenth WEURO semi-final (1989, 1991, 1993, 1995, 1997, 2001, 2005, 2009, 2013, 2022). They are aiming to reach their ninth WEURO final – 1993 is the only semi-final they were unsuccessful in, they lost to Italy on pens on that occasion
  • Germany have won each of their last seven Women’s EURO semi-final matches
  • Germany have remarkably only lost three of their 44 WEURO matches W35 D6 L3
  • Germany have kept nine clean sheets in their last 11 Women’s EURO final tournament matches
  • Germany need just one goal to become the first team to score 100 goals at the UEFA WEURO finals
  • Germany have never failed to score in a knockout phase match at the WEURO finals (23 matches played)
  • Alexandra Popp has scored in Germany’s four matches at WEURO 2022, equalling Heidi Mohr’s record of scoring in four successive WEURO final tournament matches (Mohr didn’t achieve this at the same tournament)
  • Excluding penalty shoot-outs, France have lost only one of their last 14 Women’s EURO final tournament matches (W7 D6)
  • France have won 17 and drawn one of their last 18 international matches
  • France have not conceded more than one goal in any of their last 38 Women’s EURO qualifying and final tournament matches. The last time was vs Germany in 2009 (L 5-1, group stage)
  • The last time France conceded more than one goal in a Women’s EURO final tournament match was in their 5-1 defeat against Germany in the 2009 group stage (14 matches played since then)
  • Excluding penalty shoot-outs, France have lost only one of their last 38 Women’s EURO qualifying and final tournament matches (W30 D7 L1). The sole defeat came in the quarter-finals of WEURO 2017 vs England (L 1-0)
  • France have kept 12 clean sheets in their last 18 international matches

THE PREDICTION

A mouth-watering affair is in prospect between two of the standout nations across this tournament in Germany and France. Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s side are the only team yet to concede a goal over the course of the competition, but in France they take on an opponent who have racked up nine goals in four games, although Germany themselves have scored 11 times across their four matches in comparison. Both teams recorded clean sheets in their respective quarter-final triumphs and neither are likely to take any huge risks going forward which could see them caught on the counter-attack. When taking into account how well Germany and France performed defensively in the quarter-finals, chances may be few and far between these two over 90 minutes and backing under 2.5 goals to be scored looks a shrewd play.
