Barring a last-minute injury, Joachim Löw should line up a starting XI without much surprise during the shock expected this Tuesday in the first round of the Euro between Germany and France.
Gradually, serious trends are emerging for the match of the first round of the Euro between Germany and France. If on the side of the Blues, Karim Benzema should be aligned in an attacking trio with Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappé, Joachim Löw should not upset the eleven of the Mannschaft before the shock of Group F scheduled for Tuesday in Munich. The German coach should trust the same holders as for the demonstration against Latvia (7-1) in a friendly on June 7.
The probable line-up of Germany against the Blues:
Neuer – Ginter, Hummels, Rüdiger – Kimmich, Gündogan, Kroos, Gosens – Havertz, Müller, Gnabry

Except last minute package, Joachim Löw therefore has no reason to change a winning team. In goals, the irremovable Manuel Neuer will be responsible for keeping the tricolor armada in check. The 35-year-old goalkeeper will honor his 101st selection against the Blues and should again wear the captain’s armband.
To resist the assaults of the France team, the Bayern player can count on a three-way hinge with Mats Hummels, Matthias Ginter and Antonio Rüdiger. Positioned higher in the corridors, Robin Gosens will hold the left side and Joshua Kimmich will play on the right flank. Watch out for these two, the Atalanta player and the Munich player scored against the Latvians.
A very mobile trio in attack
Faced with Paul Pogba and other N’Golo Kanté, the German midfielder will have a lot to do to control the midfield. Unsurprisingly due to the very likely absence of Leon Goretzka, captains Toni Kroos and Ilkay Gündogan should be associated with the center of the field.
In attack either, Joachim Löw will not innovate against the proteges of Didier Deschamps. The only goalscorer in the Champions League final with Chelsea, Kai Havertz will play with Serge Gnabry and the returning Thomas Müller.
If the veteran Bayern should start in the axis, as against Latvia, he is very likely to exchange with one of his partners in the process of putting in order to unbalance the defense of the France team. With such a trident, any relaxation could cost the Blues dearly.
