This will be the derby of group B, and national selections of Germany and Chile should decide about to the top two places and starting positions before the knockout stage. It is essential for them to win this game and to continue the positive trend of performances in this competition. Also, whichever team loses it might, eventually, come up into a situation, in which they have to win in the last round to continue competing the Confederations Cup.
The German team showed some excellent play and actions against Australia. But we have to admit that this combined squad is far away from the first starting lineup of the World Champions. They were incredibly dominant in the first half, when they should have scored more than just two goals. The weakest link at one point was Bernd Leno, Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper who compensated this when he denied several chances of Australia in the late phase of the match.
The game against Australia was 10th consecutive in which Germany didn’t lose, and during that span, Die Mannschaft has 8 victories and 2 draws. Also, in the same interval, Germans scored 2 or more goals in 7 games.
Regardless which team plays coach Joachim Low prefers attacking football with creating a lot of chances and imposing high tempo.
South American champions didn’t dominate as they should against Cameroon. It seems that they lack more concentration when they are attacking and also defensive line wasn’t confident like in the previous years. The African team had several good chances, and if they were more focused, the result would have been different. La Roja eventually managed to put down 2 goals, but it was only because their finishing was awful. In the end, it was far away from a comfortable win. During some part of the contest, Chille had the dominance, and they did have a few chances. However plenty more is expected from the Champion of South America. It was the 5th straight game in which they have scored first. Also, in those 5 matches, the Chilean national team scored 2 goals on 4 occasions.
Germany vs Chile Head to Head
The Germans and the Chileans played 4 games in their history so far. And the current World Champions have a perfect record of all 4 wins. All games except the previous one were at World Cups. The most recent meeting was friendly international, back in 2014 and the Germans won with the minimal result. Mario Gotze scored an opening goal in the early phase of the match.
Germany vs Chile Prediction
In our opinion, this will be a close match. Chile has a more experienced team, but the German squad has more quality. The best possible solution for the punters would be Germany over 1.5 goals and also over 1.5 goals in the second half. We believe that the opening part of this match isn’t going to produce any excitement and that the second time will be crucial.
