Germany brings a five-match winning streak into this morning's Euro Semifinal battle against France, who squeaked by Netherlands with a penalty goal in extra-time to advance.

The Germans hope to hoist the trophy for a ninth time and look like the most dominant team in the world, having not conceded a single goal in their last five contests.

France was dominant early in the tournament but lost star forward Marie-Antoinette Katoto to injury. Since then, it tied Iceland and barely beat Netherlands, as its offense hasn't been able to pick up the slack left by Katoto's absence.

Can the French turn things around with a Finals birth on the line? Before we analyze this showdown, let's take a peak at the consensus odds for the match:

Germany vs France Odds

3-Way Moneyline: 

  • Germany: +150
  • France: +180
  • Draw: +215

Germany vs France Prediction

England is the favorite to win the Women's Euro 2022, but this feels like it may be Germany's tournament to lose. The Germans have won the Euro eight times. Every other country combined has five wins. The squad is in fantastic form too, winning its last five international matches by a score of 18-0.

It seems Germany beats everyone lately except for France, who outscored Germany 5-0 in the last three matches between the countries, winning every time. But the team is not the same without Katoto, and I don't think the remaining forwards can generate enough scoring opportunities to keep the Germans within reach.

Alexandra Popp has four goals in the tourney, one fewer than England's Beth Mead, so Popp will be look to score in hopes of nabbing the Golden Boot. I think she'll succeed, as Germany has scored at least twice in each of its last 10 matches.

France, meanwhile, has just two goals total in its last two games. Germany simply overmatches les Bleus here, and we're getting fantastic value at +150 for the Germans' Euro domination to continue.

Pick: Germany (+150)
