Stadium: Wembley (London)
In the 1/8 finals of Euro 2020, England and Germany will face each other. Who will be stronger? Let's list the teams' current forms and advise on what to bet on. We will offer several variants for betting at once!
England current form
England in this Championship is not showing at all what was expected of them. Gareth Southgate's team plays very pragmatically, and this is boring., despite the fact that the attack of this team is awesome. England shows some sluggish football, however, it still shows results.
The seven points came courtesy of, shall we say, not the strongest of opponents. First, England beat far from top-seeded Croatia 1-0, then sensationally managed to split points with Scotland (0-0) and in the last round of the group stage beat the Czech Republic (1-0). The dullest overall score of the three games (2-0) and both goals were scored by Raheem Sterling. Now it's not at all clear what this team will be in the playoffs. Perhaps the star attack will show itself here because on the conventional 1-0 you can't go far.
Germany current form
The German was storming throughout the group stage. The Germans showed a frankly weak game in defense, but, nevertheless, they realized they had good chances and achieved a nice result. We should not forget that England was quite an easy group, while Germany was in the group of death. The second place in it, albeit a forced one, is still an excellent result.
Joachim Löw's side began their Euro 2020 campaign with a 0-1 defeat to the reigning world champions France, with Mats Hummels scoring the only goal of the game. After the Germans scored a spectacular goal in a match against Portugal, beating Cristiano Ronaldo and company 4-2. Germany's playoff chances were in doubt until the very last minutes of the match against the stalwart Hungarians, who had left a very good impression of themselves at Euro 2020. The Germans needed to avoid a loss in that encounter, with Hungary taking the lead twice in the process. With a bit of a struggle Germany beat the Hungarians and Leon Goretzka led his team to the 1/8 finals.
Experts betting tips
Gareth Southgate, with a bunch of stars attacking players at his disposal, has decided to give it all. Surely the specialist himself understands that it cannot go on like this all the time and it will be almost impossible to become triumphant with such football. In the group, the English have fought with regular teams, where a 1-0 victory was quite normal. Next up is Germany, which also has a great selection of players in the attacking lineup. They are obliged to score in this match. We expect to see at least one goal from each team. The bookmakers are charging high prices for the top team and we have to try to take advantage of it. Prediction: Both teams will score for odds about 1.75.
We also advise looking at a bet on a draw in regulation time. It is very likely that the teams can finish it with a score of 1-1, because if it is set in the conditional half of the second half, the opponents will not risk and clam down, waiting for each other's mistakes, and the price of these mistakes will be extremely high. To play for a draw at the regular time of the match is possible with odds in the region of 3.30.
In conclusion, I would like to highlight the German midfielder Kai Havertz. This young player in his 22 years established himself in the basis of German football, and, as it turns out, not at all by chance. He scored the only goal in the Champions League final with Chelsea, and he continues to impress. At Euro 2020, he has already scored two goals - against Portugal and Hungary. In both those games Kai was in the right place at the right time, so there is no doubt that today this midfielder will get his chance. A great option seems to be his goal, which we offer to play for the crazy odds of about 3.75.
