Although Germany enters this year’s action as the reigning World Cup champions, it’s been 4 years since we saw Germany win it all. Undoubtedly, four years is a lengthy amount of time in any endeavor, but especially in soccer. In fact, there are very few players left over from the 2014 World Cup winning squad. But nevertheless, the Germans still enter as one of this year’s betting favorites to win the tourney. And if Germany’s qualification for this year’s World Cup is any indication of the type of success they’ll enjoy, then we can expect the Germans to make quite a deep push this time around. This is due to the fact that Germany won all of their 10 qualifiers while scoring an average of 4.3 goals per game. That said, the Mexicans should be able to match Germany goal for goal. No questions about it, this is one game you won’t want to miss.
Players to Watch: Jerome Boateng (Bayern Munich), Mesut Ozil (Arsenal), and Timo Werner (RB Leipzig).
Although Mexico is one of the most successful countries within the CONCACAF tournament, they’ve never really been able to translate that success into the World Cup. Notwithstanding that track record, the Mexicans enter this year’s tournament full of confidence, ready to demonstrate their prowess on the world stage. And since Mexico went undefeated through qualifying, they’ll be looking to stretch that streak into this year’s action. The World Cup betting odds for this matchup are siding against Mexico heavily, but the Mexicans should put up a decent fight in this one.
Players to Watch: Javier Hernandez (West Ham), Carlos Vera (LAFC), and Jesus Manuel Corona (Porto).
