European heavyweights Germany and Spain clash in a Dusseldorf international friendly on Friday and we fancy the hosts to have the edge.
La Roja famously enjoyed narrow wins when these teams met in the Euro 2008 final and the 2010 World Cup semis.
However, the balance of power has since shifted in Die Mannschaft’s favour and they get the nod at 7/5 in our Germany vs Spain betting predictions.
A Look At Germany’s Betting Odds
Joachim Low has built Germany into a formidable outfit, maintaining the momentum of their 2014 World Cup triumph by reaching the Euro 2016 semis and landing last year’s Confederations Cup.
An incredible 43 goals were scored as they reeled off 10 straight wins in qualifying for Russia 2018 and it is hard to pick holes in a squad packed with proven performers.
Almost all of Die Mannschaft’s key players are at the peak of their powers in their late 20s, while fresh legs such as Joshua Kimmich, Leroy Sane and Timo Werner fill the gaps superbly.
A Look At Spain’s Betting Odds
Spain went into their World Cup qualifying campaign with questions to answer after disappointing at the last two major tournaments, but they responded in fine style.
La Roja registered nine wins and a draw with Italy to top the pool by five points, with 36 goals scored and only three conceded.
However, we are worried that they could be overrun by an energetic, all-action team like Germany.
Defensive stalwarts Sergio Ramos and Gerard Pique are both in the veteran category, along with midfielders Andres Iniesta and David Silva, while striker Diego Costa’s game is more about power than pace.
If Die Mannschaft can play at a high tempo, we fancy them to prevail 2-1 at 17/2 for our Germany vs Spain betting tips.
GERMANY 2-2 France – Timo Werner, Lars Stindl
Russia 3-3 SPAIN – Jordi Alba, Sergio Ramos (2)
Head-to-head: Spain 0-1 Germany, Germany 0-1 Spain, Germany 0-1 Spain, Spain 3-1 Germany, Germany 4-1 Spain, Spain 0-0 Germany
