France v Germany: Is the game on TV? Kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

France and Germany meet on Saturday in a high-quality friendly fixture as the two heavyweights gear up for their respective Euros bids.

Les Bleus are looking to go one better after final heartache in the World Cup in 2022, while there is plenty of pressure on host nation Germany to deliver as they seek their first European Championship win since 1996.

France v Germany stats and head-to-head record

France have eight wins in 10 games since their World Cup final defeat to Argentina in 2022, but their one loss during that run was a 2-1 reverse against their opponents on Saturday in a friendly fixture back in September.

Germany haven’t played a competitive game since their humbling group stage exit in Qatar and their victory over France is one of just two wins in their last 10 games, with them having lost six of those.

France will be without veteran forward Antoine Griezmann, 33, as he has been forced to withdraw due to an ankle injury - meaning his run of 84 consecutive appearances for his country will come to an end.

Les Bleus are also without Kingsley Coman due to a knee issue, while there are recalls for  Moussa Diaby and Ibrahima Konate.

Germany team news

This will be a new-look Germany side for manager Julian Nagelsmann, as Leon Goretzka, Serge Gnabry, Sane, Mats Hummels, Niklas Sule and Kevin Trapp have missed out on the squad.

Timo Werner has also been overlooked by his former RB Leipzig boss, but Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos returns to the side for the first time since Euro 2020.
