Why Bet on Germany?

Team Germany is led by their elite scorer Timo Werner. He scored two goals in the final group game against Cameroon. Joachim Low is the leader of the group, and has several very talented forwards. Low has not forced many of his big name stars into big minutes due to a low priority for the team to win this, but their depth has been overwhelming for most teams.

Germany in the Confederations Cup started their play with a 3-2 win over Australia. The next game was against Chile, where it finished in a 1-1 draw. The most recent win for the Germans was against Cameroon. Germany scored 7 goals in 3 games during Group play.

Mexico is the underdog in the soccer odds against Germany.

Why Bet on Mexico?

Team Mexico will play this game without Andres Guardado, who is suspended after picking up two yellow cards. Also bad news for Mexico is the injury to Carlos Salcedo. It’s a shoulder injury. Mexico has other concerns with injuries which makes them a big time underdog, and one possibly not worth betting.

Mexico got here after finishing 2nd in Group A. Mexico started with a draw against Portgual, and then backed that up with back to back wins over New Zealand and Russia. In the Group A play, the Mexicans scored 6 goals, and allowed 4.

Betting Pick & Prediction

It’s an interesting decision to make here, because Team Germany appears to not have much care whether they win the Confederations Cup or not, and Team Mexico does not appear to be healthy enough to win it. The depth of Germany is likely going to be the factor once again in this game.

It’s hard to predict anything other than a win for Germany. Germany and Portugal appear to be on a crash course to play for the title coming up on Sunday. When you are betting on this game, look at the better team, and the deeper team. Bet on Germany at 11/10 odds to win the second Semi Final match in the FIFA Confederations Cup.
