Euro 2020 'Group of Death' sees its first clash of the titans as France take on Germany in Munich. Don't miss a moment of the action with our France vs Germany live stream guide.

It's imperative for both sides to get off to a winning start in this tough Group F encounter which sees two of the strongest footballing nations in the world go toe-to-toe.

France are the current World Cup holders and are hotly-tipped to go all the way in this year's European Championship after losing out in 2016's final against Portugal.

Germany's last silverware came at the 2014 World Cup and were defeated by France in the last iteration of the Euros at the semi-final stage. However, at the 2018 World Cup Die Mannschaft crashed out at the group stage after picking up only three points.

It's advantage France if you look at the recent head-to-head record. These two fierce rivals have met only three times since that Euro 2016 semi-final with two draws and one win for Les Bleus. You'd have to go back to the 2014 World Cup quarter-final for the last time Germany beat France.

With current European champions Portugal also in Group F, both sides will be desperate to pick up maximum points at this early stage as they each try to secure safe passage to the knockout rounds.
