Betway are offering all new customers the chance to take up a huge price on the World champions getting their Euro 2016 campaign off to a flying start with a victory in Lille

After France's last gasp victory over Romania on Friday, Germany will be hoping for a somewhat easier time when they kick off their Euro 2016 campaign against Ukraine.

The World champions are being well supported in the markets and are now just 11/20 (1.55) favourites to pick up maximum points in Lille.

That is unless you're new to Betway, who are offering anyone opening an account the chance to back Die Mannschaft at 5/1 (6.0) to win the game. To take up this offer simply register using the links provided, back Germany at the usual price shown on site and if they win the match then the returns will be topped up to the enhanced price.

Joachim Low's side are second favourites to win the tournament after their victory in Brazil two years ago and despite some mixed warm up friendly results, the odds on favourites should have enough to beat Mykhaylo Fomenko's men.

The main issue in the squad appears to be at full back and while Joshua Kimmich and Jonas Hector are relatively inexperienced on the international stage, there is a strong spine running through the team and spearheaded by Thomas Muller whose goal scoring exploits at the past two major tournaments should give plenty of encouragement to Germany backers.

Ukraine needed a play-off to secure their place in France this summer having finished eight points behind holders Spain and three behind Slovakia and while Andriy Yarmolenko and Yevhen Konoplyanka will pose a threat, the Germans certainly have the weapons to combat their attacking talents as well as plenty of firepower of their own.

At 11/20 (1.55) Low's side may be too short for some punters to back but the chance to support one of the tournament frontrunners at 5/1 (6.0) is sure to prove a tempting prospect for new Betway customers.
