The best Bundesliga duels at Euro 2024


The 2024 UEFA European Championship group stage draw has thrown up some captivating duels between some of the Bundesliga's top talents. Allow bundesliga.com to take you through some of the most exciting match-ups, which will take place in the country where they ply their trade.

Harry Kane vs. Jonas Wind

Group C will see two of the German top flight's most prolific marksmen face off, as Kane's England meet Wind's Denmark on 20 June in Frankfurt. Kane has immediately set the division alight since his switch to Bayern Munich, scoring 18 goals in his first 12 Bundesliga outings to set a new league record.

Meanwhile, Wind, who joined Wolfsburg in January 2022, needed a little more time to settle into his new surroundings, but is now reaping the rewards of his patience, netting nine Bundesliga goals himself this term - only Kane, Serhou Guirassy (16) and Loïs Openda (10) have managed more. As such, supporters should expect both players to play a big role in their respective nations' chances of winning this clash.

Granit Xhaka vs. Florian Wirtz

When Germany face Switzerland in Group A, a plethora of Bundesliga players will take to the field. The hosts' squad will, obviously, be made up mostly of players from the domestic league, while a significant portion of the Swiss contingent also lace their boots in the Bundesliga. The duel between Bayer Leverkusen teammates Wirtz and Xhaka, however, catches the eye more than most. We will see who comes out on top on 23 June, also in Frankfurt.

Dani Olmo vs Andrej Kramarić

Group B already has the look of a "Group of Death", with European heavyweights Spain, Croatia and Italy set to do battle alongside relative minnows, Albania. The former two will face off in the group opener at Berlin's Olympiastadion on 15 June, with Leipzig and La Roja's Olmo looking to get the better of Hoffenheim forward Kramarić. Three points to kick the tournament off could be crucial for either side, but who will have the edge?

Kingsley Coman vs. Xavi Simons

There will also be a significant number of Bundesliga players in action in Group D given the vast majority of those in contention to feature for Austria play amongst Germany's elite. However, it is the Netherlands' clash with France that looks to be the standout fixture on paper.

With the game taking place in Leipzig on 21 June, Xavi will find himself in familiar surroundings. Amongst Les Bleus' incredible group of footballers should be Bayern's Coman, who has been a regular performer for Die Roten in recent years. With both players equally adept at providing for teammates as well as finding the back of the net themselves, there should be goals in this one!
