  • Competition: FIFA World Cup 2022

  • Kickoff: 13:00 UTC
  • Venue: Khalifa International Stadium

All eyes will be on Germany and Spain as the two world champions from the last decade get set to battle it out in Group E of the FIFA World Cup 2022. But first, the Germans will have to face the Asian machine, Japan, to open their account. The on-paper hosts were on a scoring spree back in November last year, when they put 17 goals past three opponents within a span of 10 days. Well, it seems that the Germans love this month of November. But, Japan in the World Cup will be a different ball game altogether. The Asians had put up impressive performances against Brazil, Ghana and Paraguay this summer, which was the first time they displayed their full-strength side which has been in preparations for the World Cup. There is no doubt Germans will be favoured heavily, but Japan will give them a run for their money for sure.

Germany vs Japan Betting Tips: BTTS

Germany continued the tradition by failing to cross the group stages in the 2018 World Cup, as every reigning champion has suffered in the next tournament early on. But, with the rough phase past them, it is evident that the 2014 winners will go deeper in this year's edition. Coming to the numbers, Germany have not kept a clean sheet in 70% of their games in 2022 and Japan will be hoping to take advantage of this psychological disadvantage that the home side contains. To add to this, the Asian visitors have scored in more than 60% of their games too. We are going to go for a very risky but statistically probable bet of both sides scoring. Our final prediction would be a 3-1 win for the home side after a lot of physical battles with the Japanese personnel.

Germany Team News

This German side's success directly depends on three generations of players coming through for sure. Starting with Manuel Neuer, who would ideally play the last World Cup of his career due to age constraints. The number one German stopper has held his team together through a lot and is still the best keeper in the land. Up next, comes Kai Havertz in the forward role. The 22-year-old Champions League winner with Chelsea has struggled in his club career ever since the final of Europe's biggest club competition. His performance in the World Cup will finally seal or break his place as the team's first striker. Lastly, the player around which the entire team has been built is Joshua Kimmich. Kimmich has been in this German side as a youth player, as a breakthrough star and now as the veteran who will lead the side using his experience. The prodigal midfield talent will help his country reach the semi-final of this competition at least.

Japan Team News

Japan is currently ranked 24th in the FIFA rankings, which is really commendable considering that their opponents, the mighty Germans, are just 13 ranks ahead of them. Takumi Minamino and Yuya Osako will lead the side on the offensive front, especially with Minamino's top-level European experience will come in handy for the Asians. The club also boasts some of the best talents from the J.League. The experienced defensive duo of Sho Sasaki and Hayato Araki from Hiroshima will be pivotal to the national team's chances in a group from which they are not expected to qualify. But, Sasaki and Araki's experience might ensure that they make the Germans as well as the ensuing Spaniards work hard to breach the backline. Minamino, Osako, Sasaki and Araki will be our players to watch in this game.
