Match: Germany – England Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Saturday, March 26, 2016
Start time: 19:45 GMT
One of the biggest football rivalries at a national level – between Germany and England, will be held on Saturday, March 26, at “Olympiastadion” in Berlin. The match opposing two of the favorites at Euro 2016 and marks the beginning of their preparations for the finals in France.
“DFB Eleven” was quite effective in their last two home games against Poland and Georgia, scoring five goals in them. Germany, however, there is no success in four games at home with regard to friendly matches and they will want to stop the negative trend against England. Germany have won their last two meetings with the “Three Lions” and will strive to continue his flawless performance against the leading of Roy Hodgson team.
20-year-old Jonathan Tah from Bayer Leverkusen is the only new face in the composition. Given the traumas of Jerome Boateng and Benedikt Höwedes, it will be an excellent opportunity for the young defender to show their qualities. Bastian Schweinsteiger and Ilkay Gundogan will miss the match due to injury.
England played a fantastic qualifications and flawless way to qualify for Euro 2016. “The Three Lions” set a record, having won all ten matches in the group. After the qualifying round, England lost to Spain (0:2) and beat France (2:0) in friendlies in November. The match against Germany started the preparation for the championship in the summer, which everyone expects from team finally in a meaningful success.
Although Wayne Rooney will miss the Friendlies with Germany and Netherlands due to injury, Roy Hodgson has exclusive strikers in the team. Harry Kane is on fire with 21 goals to his account in the Premier League and is expected to lead the attack on “Olympiastadion”. Jamie Vardy, who pulls Leicester to the title, there are only two goals less than Kane in Premier League. Danny Welbeck is back after his injury and became a major player at Arsenal while Daniel Sturridge from Liverpool is also an option.
Although Germany were considered favorites in the upcoming clash bet on the winner was too risky, given the good form of England. Since both teams prefer an attacking style of play, I expect that fans in Berlin will witness many goals on Saturday night.
