Germany Prediction – Low’s Team Could Score a Hatful

While Northern Ireland and Netherlands clash at Windsor Park, Germany are the other team in contention for a top two berth in Euro 2020 qualifying Group C and they have the straightforward task of beating Belarus.

This match at Borussia-Park threatens to be a complete mismatch and that is reflected in the Full-Time Result odds where the home side are trading at massive odds-on any many punters will only consider them for their Saturday accumulators.

It has been relatively plain sailing for Joachim Low’s team during qualifying considering they have won five of their six matches, with the only blot on the copybook being a 4-2 defeat at home to the Netherlands after previously beating the same team by a 3-2 scoreline in Amsterdam.

While the Northern Irish have acquitted themselves well as always, the truth is that the Dutch and Germans are streets ahead of the other teams in this section and we might therefore see the home side put on something of a show in this clash.

After all, Germany put eight goals past Estonia at the Opel Arena back in June, with Die Mannschaft running riot and the home side were five goals ahead by half-time, with a similar situation potentially occurring on Saturday.

The German players are now playing for their chance to represent the national side at Euro 2020 where they will be among the leading contenders and Low has been able to call upon a squad of talented players for the two home games over the next few days.

Timo Werner is having an excellent season for RB Leipzig and the 23-year-old will be hungry to get amongst the goals as first-choice striker for Germany, while Serge Gnabry has an incredible strike rate in a white shirt and we might expect this to continue.

It will be interesting to see the midfield composition for Germany, with Toni Kroos the only certain starter although the dynamic Joshua Kimmich is also likely to get the nod and he could be joined by club team-mate Leon Goretzka.

Considering that the Germans won 2-0 away to Belarus, we can expect a bigger margin of victory on home soil against the same opponents.

Belarus Prediction – Scoring Goals a Problem for Visitors

Belarus are almost certain to finish fourth in Group C, with the White Wings still holding an opportunity to go to the Euro 2020 finals through the Nations League route and they’ll be clinging on to that thought when they travel to Germany.

Mikhail Markhel’s side have lost five of their seven Euro 2020 qualifying matches, with Belarus coming out of their trip to the Netherlands particularly badly when losing 4-0 and we might expect them to fare similarly against a Germany side hungry for goals.

Admittedly, the Belarusians experienced that drubbing in Rotterdam right at the beginning of the campaign and have managed to shore things up defensively since then, although scoring goals has been a real problem for them.

They managed to find the net away to Northern Ireland but still lost the game 2-1, while their two goals as part of a victory over Estonia represents 50% of their total tally throughout qualifying.

Out of the three strikers in the squad, Dzyanis Laptsew has now played 28 matches for his country and is still without a goal, while Maksim Skavysh has fared marginally better when scoring twice in his 17 appearances to date.

The majority of the Belarus team play in their homeland at domestic level and are surely going to be short of the requisite quality to make this a competitive game.

Key-Facts – Germany vs Belarus

  • Germany have scored 20 goals in 6 qualifying matches
  • Serge Gnabry has scored 10 goals in 11 appearances
  • Belarus lost 4-0 away to the Netherlands

Betting Tips Verdict

Backing Germany as a single is clearly out of the question unless you’re a high-roller customer, although we can delve into the Asian Handicap betting market and come up with a gem which is currently trading at odds-against.

Germany can be backed at 2.05 with a -3 goal handicap which means that we would need them to win by four goals or more in order to land a profit. The Netherlands recently enjoyed a 4-0 victory over Belarus so this should be possible.
