Prior to the World Cup 2018 in Russia the players around coach Loew first have to take on Spain. Both teams are excellent and are star-studded. In our betting tip we can only think of an exciting game which will end close but in favor for the team from Germany. The game will start on Friday at 8:45 PM CET in the Esprit Arena in Duesseldorf.
Germany remains first place of the world – All seats are sold out
The German team is expecting their first international game this year. Loew will test his options and will give various players to show what they are made of before the World Cup starts in the summer. Loew remained undefeated during al of the games last year. This record shall not be broken in the upcoming game. The squads for the games against Spain and Brazil are not surprising. Mario Gomez is back but Reus and Goetze are two options, Loew is leaving out for these two. Both players suffered an injury and may not return to the roster due to that. The doors are not close, anyway. The players can jump on the World Cup-train in case they return to full strength. Playing at home against Spain, Germany is the fancied team.
Spain wants to find back to old strength – Underdog in the betting tip
Spain was not able to find back to the strength they used to have. Last time, Spain got eliminated in the group stage of the World Cup 2014. Two years ago, they could not get further than the round of 16. Even more important is now the motivation for the upcoming cup in Russia. Before the hot phase starts in the summer, Spain decided to try out new options in various international friendlies. Next up is Germany, which is one of the toughest teams to play against. The last time these two teams clashed can be dated back to a total of four years. Back then, Germany won 1:0. Just like Germany, Spain remained undefeated last year too which might also be a factor in the upcoming clash. Different roster options will be tried out: Martinez and Morata are missing. Marcos Alonso, Dani Parejo and Rodri are the newest additions.
