Germany – Spain: who to give preference to?
Spain did not win in the last two away matches, but will Germany manage to leave the “red fury” without a victory on September 3 – we have prepared our forecast. What to expect from the meeting?
The German national team, after the failure at the World Championship in Russia, began to rejuvenate the composition, for many older players the door to the national team was closed and Joachim Loew began to build a new team. The testing ground was the last draw of the League of Nations, where the Germans frankly failed, finishing last in the group with the Netherlands and France.
In the selection for the European Championship, Germany had the strongest group, but in the fight against the Netherlands national team they already managed to play much better. As a result, the “Bundestim” was the first in the group, ahead of the Netherlands national team by two points, but in head-to-head meetings the Germans lost to their rival again – a 2: 4 defeat at home and a 3: 2 away victory.
The German national team played their last match in mid-November, when the Germans defeated Northern Ireland with a score of 6: 1. The victory was the fourth in a row for the Bundestim.
The Spanish national team , like its current rival, failed in the last League of Nations. In the group with England and Croatia, the “red fury” took second place, losing only one point to the British.
In the selection for the European Championship, Luis Enrique’s team was not in the easiest group, but was certainly considered the main favorite to win. As a result, the Spaniards fully justified their status – they finished on the first line, ahead of the second Sweden by five points.
It is noteworthy that Spain did not lose in any of the 10 qualifying matches – eight wins and two draws, had the best attack and defense (31 goals scored and only five conceded).
Germany has four wins in the last four official matches
Germany has scored fewer than two goals in just one of its last nine home games
Spain has not won the last two away games – two draws
Spain have conceded in each of their last four away matches
Germany Spain 1-1
The German national team gradually found its game in a new combination, if in the League of Nations the team’s problems were palpable, then in the qualification for the European Championship the situation has changed dramatically. The Bundestim is in full order in the attack – they sent 30 goals to their opponents in the tackle, and looked quite solid in defense.
Of course, the Germans have problems with the “top” national teams, but Spain is far from ideal – the “red fury” regularly misses away, Germany is able to use these mistakes and get three points.
We believe the hosts have a better chance of winning. Forecast – Asian handicap (0) for Germany . In 1xBet such an outcome is offered with odds of 1.82
