Germany vs Saudi Arabia: Low eyeing Leverkusen fillip

Germany vs Saudi Arabia: Low eyeing Leverkusen fillip

Kick Off: 1830, 08/06/2018

Stadium: BayArena

Germany have had an uncharacteristically sloppy build-up to Russia 2018 but should get back on track when facing Saudi Arabia in Leverkusen on Friday.

Miroslav Klose hit a hat-trick as Die Mannschaft enjoyed an 8-0 romp when these teams last met at the 2002 World Cup.

It may not be quite so emphatic in this warm-up contest, but 12/5 for 4-0, 5-0 or 6-0 takes the eye for our Germany vs Saudi Arabia betting tips.

A Look At Germany’s Betting Odds

Defending champions Germany were ruthless in qualifying for this summer’s tournament, rattling off 10 straight wins and scoring 43 goals in the process.

After closing that campaign, Joachim Low will not have been too concerned by a trio of draws against England, France and Spain.

However, they then lost 1-0 to Brazil in Berlin and failed to capitalise on an early strike by Mesut Ozil when beaten 2-1 away to Austria on Saturday.

Low welcomed the return of Manuel Neuer over the weekend but admitted: “Of course, the defeat angers me.

“We lost too many balls, which normally doesn’t happen with us, we missed chances after the goal, a lot of things were bad.

“I learned some important things from the game. We have a lot to improve.”

Low is under a bit of scrutiny after leaving Manchester City starlet Leroy Sane out of his World Cup squad, so will want a positive response here.

Looking at the Germany vs Saudi Arabia odds, the big hitters will be tempted by 7/10 for Die Mannschaft to prevail by more than two clear goals.

A Look At Saudi Arabia’s Betting Odds

Saudi Arabia booked a trip to Russia 2018 by beating Japan 1-0 in the final round of Asian qualifying fixtures, helping them pip Australia to second place in that pool.

There have been some encouraging displays in friendlies, with wins over Algeria and Greece, while losing 2-1 to Italy was no disgrace.

However, heavy defeats versus Portugal, Belgium and Peru have exposed their limitations, with 10 goals conceded in those matches and none scored.

The Green Falcons look in too deep again here and 16/5 for Die Mannschaft to lead 2-0 at half-time completes our Germany vs Saudi Arabia betting predictions.
