Germany v England Betting Tips
Germany suffered a loss against England this time last year as they went down 3-2 when England’s Eric Dier netted a last minute goal for the visitors. Germany have gone W5 D1 in their last six international matches since August last year and the only team to stop them winning in that sequence was Italy, who held them to a 0-0 draw. In the Bet365 correct score market a Germany 1-0 result is the shortest priced option at a quote of 13/2. That’s not an unappealing wager either for punters because Germany have not conceded a single goal in any of their six matches this season and have won their last three games to nil. Germany to win to nil at Bet365 is a price of 2/1, but looking back, there has been plenty of goals between these in Germany recently and over 2.5 goals is a price of 4/5 on the game. In the anytime goalscorer market, Germany have Mario Gomez at 6/5 and Thomas Muller at 3/2 at the head of the market.
Fourteen goals in total have been scored in the last three meetings between Germany and England out in Germany. Both teams have failed to score in just one of the last six meetings between the two nations and therefore both teams to score at Bet365 is a price of 8/11. Following this game at the Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund, Germany will face up against Azerbaijan in Group C of World Cup 2018 Qualifying. England will welcome Lithuania to Wembley on Sunday. Since that famous 5-1 win that England dished out to Germany in the 2002 World Cup qualifiers, the Three Lions have gone W2 L3 in their last five against Die Mannschaft. England’s last two wins against the Germans have been by just the one goal margin and an England to win by a one goal margin for this meeting is a price of 5/1 at Bet365.
Will England come away from Germany with another feel-good factor with a win under their belt? The Three Lions are sat comfortably at the head of their World Cup 2018 qualifying group and that is where the main focus will be. They are missing a large chunk of their regular attack with Harry Kane, Daniel Sturridge, Danny Welbeck and Wayne Rooney all out of action. Sunderland’s Jermain Defoe gets a recall while Southampton duo Nathan Redmond and James Ward-Prowse get call ups to the squad. England’s shortest priced option in the Bet365 anytime goalscorer market is Jamie Vardy (one of the scorers last March against Germany) who is up at a price of 5/2 with Marcus Rashford and Defoe trading at 11/4. England’s most recent fixture saw them play out a 2-2 draw with Spain in November last year. Overall, the Three Lions have gone W3 D2 this season, with four clean sheets in those five games played.

Germany v England Predictions
Germany Home Win: This should be another entertaining match up between the two and England haven’t done badly in recent visits there. However, Germany are just defensively on point at the moment and will likely find a way to see off their rivals. It could well be worth a flutter on both teams to score but for Germany to get the win on the board.
