The German team will be facing strong opponents in the EURO 2020 championship.

After the draw of the groups for the 2020 it is clear that Germany will be tested by the best during the group stage.

Only the top two teams in each of the six groups are certain to qualify for the round of 16 along with the four top-performing runners-up.


This is the result of the draw for group F:

Group F (Munich, Budapest)

  • Germany

  • France

  • Portugal

  • Winner (Iceland, Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania)


The games will be played as follows:
16 June 2020
Play-off Winner - Portugal (Puskás Aréna, Budapest)
France - Germany (Allianz Arena, Munich)
20 June 2020
Play-off Winner - France (Puskás Aréna, Budapest)
Portugal - Germany (Allianz Arena, Munich)
24 June 2020
Portugal - France (Puskás Aréna, Budapest)
Germany - Play-off winner (Allianz Arena, Munich)

This is likely the worst posible draw for the Germans, facing the reigning world champions France and current European champions, Portugal, at the UEFA Euro 2020.

You might say that, if it was not for bad luck, Germany would have had no luck at all with that draw, but they actually got to play all group stage games at Allianz Arena in Munich.

And if they do qualify for the knock-out games, they will not be facing France and Portugal. At least not right away...
