Germany v San Marino Preview and Tips
San Marino should pose the world champions few problems when the sides go head-to-head on Saturday evening
June 8th, 2017
Is it really any surprise to see Germany sitting in pole position in their World Cup qualifying group with five wins from their opening five games and just one goal conceded during that time? This perfect start will almost certainly continue as Joachim Low’s men brush aside rock-bottom San Marino this weekend with the hosts just 1/100 in the outright winner betting market.
Germany were held to a 1-1 stalemate in their international friendly with Denmark earlier this week, however there is little reason to believe that they won’t fill their boots on the goalscoring front on Saturday evening.
With Die Mannschaft looking forward to an appearance in the Confederations Cup next week, coach Joachim Low has decided to omit some of his star names and concentrate instead on giving a few youngsters a chance to shine on the international stage, however while a handful of players which featured in the 8-0 demolition of San Marino won’t be making appearances this weekend, we believe that the visitors will be subjected to yet another humiliating defeat in Germany.
The tiny nation has suffered defeat in all five of their qualifiers with just one goal scored along the way, however their record against Germany makers for even worse reading with 27 goals conceded and none scored in reply. Indeed given this game’s one-sided nature, it is far from easy finding anything remotely resembling value in the outright market and instead we’ll be going for Germany with -7 handicap.
As regards potential goalscorers, Timo Werner has been pretty prolific on that front in the Bundesliga and is on the radar of several Premier League sides. As such, the player will be looking to impress this weekend and given a chance he should feature on the scoresheet with 10/11 good value on him to score at least twice against the group minnows.
