Germans receive some good news: Injury and Betting News
Germany coach Joachim Low has calmed any pre-semi-final apprehensions by claiming every one of his 23 players should be fit and available for selection ahead of Wednesday’s mouthwatering clash with Spain, the team they lost 1-0 to in the 2008 European Championship’s final. There are, however, still doubts surrounding the Brazil born Cacua, but Low remains confident that the VFB Stuttgart man will recover in time, as should Sami Khedira. It means only Thomas Muller will be unavailable for selection after the four-goal man, one of the stars of the tournament if truth be told, received his second yellow card of the tournament in the 4-0 rout of Argentina over the weekend.
Despite THRASHING both England and Argentina, two fancied teams before the tournament, 4-1 and 4-0 respectively, Germany aren’t the favourites to progress into the final. This current German crop have surpassed all expectations so far and on Wednesday will be aiming to qualify for their eighth FIFA World Cup final. They are currently best odds of 2.90 (19/10) with WilliamHill to overhaul the World’s second best team according to the FIFA Rankings, Spain.
The Germans have racked up eight goals in two knock-out encounters so far, scoring four against England and Argentina. You’ll get a tasty 25/1 with SkyBet if you think they’ll do the same to Spain by Scoring 4 or More Goals on Wednesday, while 4-0 and 4-1 Germany wins are both priced at 100/1 with Coral.
