England v Germany 20:00
After 11 weeks of League action we are back with another International Break and whether you love them or hate them there’s not a lot we can do about it!
However, this time we’ve at least got some decent games to look forward to as eight sides, that include Northern and Republic of Ireland, do battle in the World Cup play-offs and try and book their places at the Russian-hosted finals next summer.
While, we’ve also got some decent International Friendlies, like old rivals England and Germany, who face-off at Wembley on Friday night………………………and that’s where we’ve heading this week.
Both sides have already booked their placed at the World Cup in 2018 after topping their groups in decent fashion. Germany took a maximum of 30 points with 10 wins, while England were not too far behind with 8 wins and 2 draws from their 10 qualifying games. This has seen most firms price-up Germany as the favourites to retain their World Cup title next summer, while the Three Lions are as big as 21.00 to win footballs most famous competition.
Therefore, with both teams safely booked into the Finals they can now use the next 6 months or so to get in as many friendlies as they can and try and fine-tune their best squads to take to Russia next June.
And it doesn’t come much bigger in World football that an England v Germany clash to get us in the mood.
Yes, it goes without saying that these friendlies are not always games to get overboard in with players having one eye on their domestic league season, and also coaches tinkering around with formations. But, that said, players are also looking to book their place in the World Cup squads so will want to impress so we should still be in for a competitive and informative clash.
Looking at the match betting it’s a tight one with the bookmakers finding it a hard one to call – especially with England having a supposed slight edge with home advantage – England are on offer at 2.80, the draw 3.30 and Germany the slight favourites at 2.50.
What do the stats say?
The sides last met back in March this year, but with Germany winning that one 1-0 then the current World Champions will head into the game with the slight advantage.
If we add in that Germany are unbeaten in their last five away games against England and that they also come here having not tasted defeat in their last 19 then all of a sudden the 1.44 on offer on Germany or the Draw in the ‘Double Chance’ market doesn’t look bad value at all…….despite being odds-on.
To combat this though England head into the clash having not lost in their last 9 home games and, as mentioned, they avoided defeat in all of their 10 World Cup qualifying games.
Ok, they didn’t have a side that matched Germanys quality in their group, but the signs are there that Gareth Southgate is slowly starting to find a decent formula from his squad and with the Wembley crowd sure to be up for a clash against the old rivals then the Three Lions can’t be underestimated.
England fans will also know that they’ve beaten Germany in 2 of the last 5 head-to-heads (both away), plus the fact they’ve also scored in 8 of their last 10 against the Germans then there is every chance if the visitors want to win this one they will have to score at least twice!
This is backed-up with Germany only 1.30 (odds are subject to change) to keep a clean sheet, while it’s also interesting that both teams have scored in 5 of the last 7 head-to-heads, plus in 7 of the last 9 Germany games both teams have found the back of the net.
In a game like this the draw will certainly appeal to many punters, but be warned! Surprisingly, we’ve only seen one stalemate in the last 14 head-to-heads between these two sides which suggests more often than not we get a result one-way, or another when they meet – a Germany or England win can be backed at 1.34 in the ‘Double Chance’ market.
Looking at goal scoring options, then England’s Harry Kane is an obvious call after netting 7 times in his last 6 games for his country, but the Spurs hitman has had a few injury niggles of late so we’ll need to check the team news closer to the game to double check his participation – with there being a string suggestion he’ll be sitting these games out.
Onto Germany, and they’ve been chipping in with goals from all over the place, but with a brace in their last game against Azerbaijan then Schalke midfielder Leon Goretzka might be a man to have on your radar.
So, a tricky one to call but with both teams in decent scoring form at present then Over 2.5 goals certainly catches the eye at 2.00, but the slightly safer option looks to be to opt with BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE here at 1.72, which will also cover us for the 1-1 draw.
As pointed out, both teams have scored in 7 of Germany’s last 9 games, while with 8 goals in their last 10 against the Germans then England have a fair record of finding the net against the current World Champions at present too.
JUICESTORM Best Bet: BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE @1.72
