Their last clash ended in a 2-1 win in favour of France in the UEFA Nations League game which was played at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis in October 2018. 
 
Joachim Loew, the Germany head coach, says there is still a need to work on parts of their game before they take on France. 
 
"I cannot fully draw conclusions from our camp just yet because our preparation continues and after the game tomorrow we have a week in Duesseldorf to prepare for France," Loew said. 
 
"We have certainly taken a step forward but we still have to improve. We have done the basic work but on some issues, for the next week we will continue to work to become more stable and stronger."
