Germany began their World Cup campaign with a comprehensive 4-0 win over Portugal which set them en route to winning one of the toughest looking groups in this year's tournament.
Joachim Low's side may have needed extra-time to see off Algeria in the last round, but they are the favourites to get the better of their European opposition on Friday evening.
Thomas Muller has been in fine form in front of goal, notching four times in the four games so far and with Mesut Ozil and Andre Schurrle both firing late goals against Algeria, plus Miroslav Klose chasing the all-time World Cup top goalscorer record, the Germans have plenty of firepower in their side.
At 6/4 (2.50) in a finely-balanced clash they may not appeal too much to potential backers but Paddy Power are offering 6/1 (7.0) on Germany securing a win in normal time.
France impressed in the group stages and although they left it late to see of Nigeria in the last-16, Didier Deschamps will be confident that they can upset the odds and progress to the semi-finals.
There isn't much between the two teams in the betting with Les Bleus available at a best price of 9/4 (3.25). New Paddy Power customers can get a huge enhancement, boosting the price on France to 7/1 (8.0), over double the best odds available elsewhere.
With these sides seemingly well matched, the draw could be a popular play and at 8/1 (9.0) it is the biggest of the enhanced prices on offer from the Irish bookmaker for this game.
For those who already have an account, there is also a Money Back Special on offer from the Irish bookmaker.
If this match ends in a penalty shootout, Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last goalscorer, Correct Score & Scorecast singles on this match as a free bet.
Anyone without a Paddy Power account who wants to take advantage of these offers can sign up for one here.
