Confederations Cup is going to end with style. The World Champions will clash with the best team in South America. Germany against Chile. One of the most dominant selections in the history of the football, against the nation who is unstoppable lately. The working mentality and cold rationality, against hot heads and passionate approach to the game. Totally two different philosophies. On the one hand, we have the Germans who want to score as many goals as possible, while on the other, Chile prefers tactical game, with a slow tempo and a cautious approach to the match.
Truly, we are about to witness a big spectacle in Sankt Petersburg, and two of the best teams in this tournament will decide the winner of this competition.
Die Mannschaft displayed some terrifying performances. We mentioned several times that this is not the best possible team of this nation, but anyway, guys who came to Russia were excellent. In 4 games they have scored 11 goals, allowing 5. They have 4 straight games in which both teams scored, and 6 in the last 7.
Also, 4 of the last 5 games ended with over 2.5 goals. In previous 10 fixtures, the Germans scored two goals on 6 occasions.
Chile displayed magnificent tactics on this tournament. They have a fantastic approach to every game, and their only focus is the final goal. And that is the title of Confederations Cup. After starting victory against Cameroon, Chile played three straight games which ended with a draw, scoring 4 goals throughout the whole competition. In the last 5 competitive encounters, La Rojas played 4 games which ended with under 2.5 goals.
What is the main characteristic of this team, is a hard and disciplined defence, which eventually tries to produce some good counter-attacks.
Against Portugal, we saw the whole team working together in both phases of the game, not allowing Cristiano Ronaldo and the boys to impose their own tempo.
Germany vs Chile Head to Head
Germany and Chile played 5 games before this one. First 4 were good for the Germans, as they won all of them, conceding a goal in only one of them. The last one happened 10 days ago, and for the first time in history, Chile managed to stay unbeaten, 1-1. We saw a good performance of the South Americans, who neutralised the German attack and pacey midfield.
Germany vs Chile Prediction
There is no doubt that this match has no massive favourites. The bookmakers are giving slightly bigger chances for the Germans. We too, are close to believing that this is a better option for your bet.
But we have to add that it is not our first choice. Under 2.5 goals is the most realistic outcome in this game. As we previously saw, Chile has the capability to slow down Germany and to neutralize the main players in their game.This is why we recommend playing on this outcome.
