Who would have thought the reigning World Cup champions would lose their opening game to Mexico.
Germany didn’t look their usual self, struggled to create many clear-cut chances, and were caught out by a quick counter attack from the lively Mexicans.
It’s now time for the real Germany to show up and Timo Werner, along with Ozil and Muller will need their shooting boots on if they are going to get 3 points over Sweden.
The Swedes secured a 1-0 win over South Korea and know a win will secure them a knock-out spot and eliminate the Germans.
This may be a tall order, but they will defend deep and try and hold out for a draw.
We don’t see many goals in this and the Germans will be gunning to secure a win to get their qualification ambitions back on track.
Given the Swedes defeated Italy in the play-offs, they know how to defend as a team when it matters most, but the value bet is the Germans will eventually break through.
Therefore, we fancy Draw Half Time / Germany Full Time at 47/20 as our best bet.
In the correct score market we would put up 1-0 Germany at 9/2 as our pick.
Good luck with your bets.
