Group 4


Germany have maintained an impressive unbeaten record up until now, winning five and drawing one of their six qualifying games thus far. Their only slip up came away in Finland when the pair played out an anthralling 3-3 draw in Helsinki. A result, which if it had of gone germany’s way, could of all but guaranteed them at least a second place finish. With that rare slip up to one side, the German’s still find themselves in a commanding position and qualification is now there’s to lose.


It’s hard to envisage Germany not winning the group so it’s now left to the remaining countries in Group 4 to compete for that one remaining play-off position. Russia are the firm favourites to attain at least a second place finish as they’ve gone five points clear of Finland in third. Russia also have an outside chance of sneaking top spot providing they get the better of Germany on home soil in a game they will play later this year. Russia lost 2-1 in Dortmund earlier in qualification so it’s crucial for Russia to avenge that defeat if they have any hopes of leapfrogging Germany into first.


Finland haven’t given up hope just yet but will have to claw back the five point gap between them and Russia. However, their 3-0 home defeat in Helsinki to Russia may have been the nail in the coffin as far as their qualification dreams are concerned. Wales can mathematically qualify but only a minor miracle would see them finish in second. Azerbaijan have struggled to keep up with the bigger countries throughout while Liechtenstein have been the beating boys in group 4, conceding a total of 15 goals in six games.
