Football – World – Confederations Cup Betting Tips

Just in case we were all wondering what to focus on next with all the major european leagues now at an end, FIFA have very kindly organised the Confederations Cup (which is actually played every four years) as an end of season fill-in, and this year’s tournament is held in Russia.

The second match in Group B features Australia, who, incidentally, are the first nation to have qualified for this competition from two different confederations; Oceania and Asia – the latter being a 2-1 win over South Korea in the AFC Asian Cup in 2015. They will play current World Cup holders, Germany, at the Olimpiyskiy Stadion in Sochi this evening.

Australia are considered one of the heavyweights on the Asian scene, along with the likes of Japan and South Korea, and they currently sit in third place in their World Cup qualifying Group B, just one point behind leaders Japan in a three-way tussle for the top two automatic qualifying spots with Japan and Saudi Arabia.

This will be Australia’s first return to this tournament for 12 years, and they’ll be hoping to put in a better set of results than their last appearance which ended with three straight defeats to Germany 4-3, Argentina 4-2 and 2-0 to Tunisia.

Germany will be looking to open their account in Group B on Monday night against Australia, whom they’ve lost just once to in the previous four encounters between these two sides. Joachim Low has brought over a young and relatively inexperienced side, but what they lack in experience, they make up for in talent and desire to be considered for a regular slot in the national team.

Players such as Draxler, Mustafi, Can and Ginter will provide all-important know-how, and any German side will be well drilled and well organised under the influence of Joachim Low. Germany come into this match on the back of a ten-game unbeaten streak in all competitions which includes eight wins.

Amongst these eight wins were victories over Czech Republic, England and Northern Ireland, scoring a total of 31 goals and conceding just 2 goals in reply.

Quality should out here, with Germany covering the -1 asian handicap.
