class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>With Southgate's men likely to keep things tight, Al Hain-Cole expects a closely fought Euro 2020 encounter when Die Mannschaft visit Wembley
England will be out to banish memories of Euro 96 disappointment when they welcome Germany to Wembley in Tuesday’s Euro 2020 last 16 clash.
Gareth Southgate has a particularly bad memory of the last time these sides met in the European Championship knockout stages, famously missing a penalty in the semi-final defeat 25 years ago.
England vs Germany Latest Odds
However, he can be backed at 6/4 (2.50) with bet365 to go some way to putting that to rest by overseeing a victory against the historic rivals in London.
Die Mannschaft needed a late equaliser in their final group game against Hungary to reach this stage but are available at 19/10 (2.90) to step things up a gear with a big win against their hosts here.
The last meeting between this duo resulted in a 0-0 friendly draw at this stadium back in 2017, and you can get odds of 9/4 (3.25) on them taking this match into extra-time after another deadlocked 90 minutes.
England vs Germany Team News
Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell will face late fitness tests as they come out of COVID-19 isolation on the day of the game, while Southgate could switch from a back four to a back three for this clash.
Mats Hummels, Ilkay Gundogan, Serge Gnabry and Thomas Muller all played against Hungary after overcoming minor injuries, leaving Jonas Hoffman and Lukas Klostermann as the only doubts here.
England vs Germany Preview
Although always considered models of consistency at this level, it is hard to know what to expect from Joachim Low’s team following a topsy-turvy group stage.
After opening with a frustrating 1-0 defeat that saw them fail to really trouble France, they exploded with an exciting 4-2 victory over Portugal before just about earning the draw they required versus Hungary thanks to Leon Goretzka’s late equaliser.
In contrast, the Three Lions have been extremely steady so far, yet to concede a goal but scoring just twice themselves in three controlled yet uninspired performances.
England vs Germany Tips and Predictions
With Southgate likely hoping for more of the same in terms of solidity, an England team that has conceded just once in nine fixtures looks worth backing at 8/11 (1.73) to ensure under 2.5 goals for a fourth time in five games against Germany.
