Germany Women vs France Women, KO: 20:00 Jul 27, 2022, Stadium MK
TWO continental giants meet at Stadium MK on Wednesday night, as Germany Women face France Women at the semi-final stage of Euro 2022.
The Germans comfortably navigated their way through the group phase, racking up three consecutive victories to reach the quarter-final stage.
Martina Voss-Tecklenburg's team then took one step closer to their ninth European Championship title with a professional 2-0 win over Austria.
Next up for Germany is a mouthwatering final-four showdown with a France side currently ranked as the third-best team in the world.
Les Bleus sealed their passage to their first European Championship semi-final by eliminating reigning champions Netherlands with a 1-0 win after extra-time on Saturday.
That triumph edged France a step closer to winning a major tournament for the first time but they still have one major hurdle to overcome if they are reach Sunday's Wembley showpiece.
France, who have drawn their last two matches inside normal time, head into this contest as slight outsiders at 15/8 with Bet 365.
Goals have been a regular feature of France's Euro 2022 games this season and I suspect another enjoyable match-up could be in the offing in Milton Keynes.
Although Les Bleus boast quite the plethora of attacking talent within their ranks, collecting clean sheets remains an issue for Corinne Diacre's defence.
France failed to shut out their opponents in each of their three group games, conceding to already-eliminated duo Belgium and Iceland in the process.
That defensive vulnerability does not bode well ahead of a high-stakes affair with a Germany team who are currently the second-top scorers at this summer showpiece.
While Germany have yet to concede a goal at Euro 2022, it would be fair to say that a bout with the French will represent their toughest test to date.
With this in mind, as well as the fact that France have scored at least once in 16 of their last 17 matches, I'm prepared to go against the grain here and back Les Bleus to breach the Germans backline.
It's also worth noting that both teams to score punters would have pocketed profit from three of France's four Euro 2022 outings so far and that only adds to the appeal of supporting the same wager on Wednesday night at evens (SBK).
