It had been 33 qualifying matches since the Germans had last lost a game although Saturday’s 2-0 reverse in Poland has thrown Group D wide open and given the Republic of Ireland added confidence they can get a result in Gelsenkirchen on Tuesday night.

Joachim Low was missing several first-team players including Marco Reus and Bastian Schweinstiger when losing in Warsaw, with the world champions now under a little pressure to record three points in this match.

Scotland came painstakingly close to claiming a point in Germany recently and Martin O’Neill will have been buoyed by the comprehensive victory against Gibraltar on Saturday which saw Ireland run out 7-0 winners.

Bet365 offer 14/1 about the visitors claiming the spoils, with Robbie Keane hungry for more goals after his first-half hat-trick at the weekend, while the draw could be an interesting runner at 21/4.

The process of rebuilding the German squad could prove a difficult one after Die Mannschaft achieved such a high by winning in Brazil, although they are still a top-class team and the team that lost against the Polish included Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels, Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller.

However, piling in at 2/7 isn’t for the faint-hearted and we prefer the odds about a 1-0 win for the Germans, with BetVictor offering 7/1 about that particular scoreline and perhaps the Republic were flattered by the scoreline against a Gibraltar side simply nowhere near the required standard.
