Australia vs Germany Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

World Cup reigning champions Germany kick off their FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 on Monday night when they take on Australia at the Olimpiyskiy Stadion Fisht in Sochi. Australia were thrashed 0-4 at home by Brazil in a friendly fixture in their most recent game. On the contrary, Germany destroyed San Marino 7-0 in their World Cup qualifier a week ago thanks to a hat-trick from Sandro Wagner and four other goals from Julian Draxler, Amin Younes, Shkodran Mustafi and Julian Brandt. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Germany are the favourites to win the tournament despite the fact that they have an inexperienced squad. They come into this clash high on confidence following ridiculous victory over San Marino, so I’m expecting them to pick up another big-margin win here. Furthermore, all five meetings between these two sides have seen at least three goals scored.

Australia Preview

Australia were on an eight-game unbeaten streak across all competitions prior to their 0-4 home loss against Brazil in a friendly fixture on Tuesday. They have enjoyed a strong World Cup qualifying campaign, winning four and drawing four of their eight group B fixtures. They currently sit in third in the group B table tied on 16 points with the second-placed Saudi Arabia. Australia looked prolific in front of goal as they managed a decent tally of 14 goals in eight group fixtures. Tomi Juric and Mile Jedinak have been Australia’s most dangerous players in front of goal throughout their World Cup qualifying campaign, as they bagged seven goals between them. Australia were representing Oceania in their previous three appearances at the Confederations Cup, but after winning the Asian Cup in 2015, they are the first country to represent two confederations. Australia’s coach Ange Postecoglou has already announced that he needs a new challenge in 2018, but he will still be looking for a good performance at this tournament. The interesting fact is that Australia are undefeated in their most recent two meetings with Germany, scoring two goals in each of these.

Australia Team News

Tim Cahill is the only surviving member of the squad from Australia’s last Confederations Cup appearance in 2005, while Jamie Maclaren has been recalled to the squad.

Germany Preview

Germany were beaten 0-2 by hosts France in the Semi-finals of the Euro 2016, but haven’t lost a single game since then. The Germans come into this tie on the back of a ten-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, winning eight and drawing twice in the process. They have been fantastic throughout their World Cup qualifying campaign as they sit on top of the group C table with maximum points after six group games. Furthermore, the Germans managed an impressive tally of 27 goals in those six fixtures, including five from their topscorer Thomas Muller. Germany enter the fray on the back of a 7-0 home win over the minnows San Marino in a World Cup qualifier, despite the fact that coach Joachim Loew used a younger squad. Actually, this tournament is being used as an opportunity to give untested players more experience and this is why only three World Cup winners are included in Germany’s Confederations Cup squad. However, Germany looked very well with the newcomers Sandro Wagner, Lars Stindl, Julian Brandt or Amin Younes. Head-to-head, Germany have only lost once in their five previous meetings with Australia, scoring at least two goals in four of these.

Germany Team News

There are only three World Cup winners are included in Germany’s Confederations Cup squad: Julian Draxler, Matthias Ginter and Shkodran Mustafi.
