Germany vs Japan: Football Whispers’ free betting tips

Group E will kick off with the match between Germany and Japan, which is scheduled for Wednesday, November 23rd. Here are some very early betting predictions for this match:

Germany & Over 2.5 Goals

Germany have picked up a draw and a win from their two previous games against Japan, both of which produced over 2.5 goals. Germany head into the game as the favourite and have won two of their last four matches in all competitions, including a 5-2 win over Italy in the Nations League. Three of Japan’s last six matches have ended with at least three goals being scored, adding further weight to our prediction.

Both Teams to Score

Both teams scored when these two countries last locked horns in 2006, where the game ended in a 2-2 draw, and we’re backing at both teams to find the back of the net once again. Both teams have scored in four of Germany’s last six outings in all competitions with their only clean sheet during that period coming against Oman. Japan have scored 11-goals in their last five matches and look a real threat going forward and we expect the underdogs to test the German defence.

Will Japan manage to put up a fight here?

Germany

There is no doubt that Germany is one of the best football teams in the world, but their recent results haven’t been as great as we are used to see from them. After all, the team failed to get out of their group at World Cup in Russia, lost to England in Euro 2020 Round of 16, and, in th meantime, finished third in their group in UEFA Nations League, behind Italy and Hungary.

So, Germany might not be in the best of forms ahead of the upcoming World Cup, but the quality is there. Their coach Hansi Flick can count on many big names, including the team’s captain Thomas Muller. Next to him, there are more than a few Bayern Munich stars like Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane, Joshua Kimmich, and the young phenom Jamal Musiala, so that’s a pretty solid base of players who play together every day.

Japan

After failing to qualify for World Cup until 1998, Japan qualified for each World Cup since then, so this will be their seventh appearance at the biggest football stage. The team also established themselves as one of the best in Asia, having won the Asian Cup four times, more than any other team.

Obviously, Japan’s chances in a group with two European giants such as Germany and Spain are not that high, but this is a solid team with some interesting players that play in Europe. For example, experienced defender and captain of the team, Maya Yoshida, along with Takumi Minamino and Real Sociedad’s youngster Takefusa Kubo.
