Germany v Mexico- World Cup 2018

Germany vs Mexico World Cup 2018 Preview 17th June – 4.00 p.m
(Full time: 0:1 – goals: Lozano 35′)

Germany, who have won just one of their last six games, will be looking for a positive start in their World Cup title defence as they play Mexico on Sunday. This is in Group F which Germany is expected to win and banking three points in this opener would give them a nice start towards doing that. Mexico suffered a heavy defeat against Germany in Russia in last summer’s Confederations Cup. Can El Tri come up with something different this time around against the Germany defence which has been leaking goals?

Germany vs Mexico Preview

Interestingly we are going to have to dig into Germany’s form at the moment which is not something you really have concern yourself about most of the time. Germany have taken one win in their last six games and that is not ideal preparations for their title defence at the World Cup 2018. The way you can think about this which will offset any panic about Germany showing up and competing, is that they are so proficient at dealing with tournament football. It would not be a huge shock to see them produce a stunning performance to collect three points in this game against Mexico. They may just be able to turn it on that easily.

Germany have made it through to the semi finals of each of their last six international tournaments and they have been the highest scoring side at each of the last three editions of the World Cup. In the bet365 correct score market a Germany 2-1 option is at 7/1 odds* (betting odds taken on June 13, 2018 at 11:35 PM) which is a decent place to start in our Germany v Mexico predictions and we are looking at Mexico finding a way through because Germany’s defence has not been very watertight recently.

A leaky German defence?

Germany have conceded in seven of their last eight games and it’s not only that it is the fact that they have gone out shipped against the likes of low scoring nations like Saudi Arabia, Azerbaijan and Northern Ireland during that sequence. Mexico are not looking particularly hot in front of goal at the moment but still we are looking for some value in this game and backing Germany to concede can be done with a both teams to score at even money odds with bet365* (betting odds taken on June 13, 2018 at 11:35 PM) option. At that price it makes for a very interesting Germany v Mexico prediction option.

Germany are likely to come up with enough goals to win this game as they have the double threat of Thomas Muller and Timo Werner. It is Werner who is the 15/4 odds favourite in the bet365 first goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on June 13, 2018, at 11:35 PM). The two defeats that Germany have suffered in their last three games were against Brazil and Austria and both were losses by a one-goal margin. So it has not been perfect for Germany, but will they turn on the style and hit the ground running at the tournament?

Are Mexico a threat?

Mexico does not particularly look like they are going to cause a huge stir by winning this opening fixture of theirs, but they will potentially play their part in our prediction of the game going over 2.5 goals which is at 9/10 odds with bet365* (betting odds taken on June 13, 2018, at 11:35 PM). Again that is because we fancy the Mexicans to get on the scoresheet despite a lack of current scoring threat. Mexico have come up with only one goal in their last four games but they always play with plenty of energy and they do look to get for as much as possible. Their speed on the break could cause a flap or two in the German defence.

Mexico’s form in their last four games is only W1 D1 L2 so they are not running hot, certainly not enough to suggest that they will win this. Losing this wouldn’t be a total disaster for El Tri as they would still have a decent chance of playing their way through to the round of 16, as they will go into games against South Korea and then what is likely to be a crucial qualifying decider against low-scoring Sweden. Mexico lost 4-1 against Germany at last summer’s Confederations Cup out in Russia which means they have lost all three of their previous games against Die Mannschaft.

Germany v Mexico Predictions

Germany may well get a serious test by Mexico, who are always full of energy and play a positive game. Germany have not quite been at their best in their buildup to the tournament, but they are so good at managing situations like this that they are likely to win and our Germany v Mexico prediction is Germany to win & both teams to score.
