Germany will be without most of their Bayern Munich players for Thursday’s Nations League clash with Spain but still get the nod for Stuttgart success.
La Roja’s squad lacks world-class quality going forward and that may allow Die Mannschaft to play in a positive manner at Mercedes Benz Arena.
We’re happy to take 7/5 for a home win for our first Germany vs Spain prediction.
A Look At Germany’s Betting Odds
Germany disappointed in the inaugural Nations League competition, but those struggles came on the back of a 2018 World Cup flop.
Joachim Low fended off calls for his departure and helped Die Mannschaft regroup with an encouraging European Championship qualifying campaign.
Seven wins and just one loss saw Germany finish two points ahead of Holland in Group C and they now look back on track.
Manuel Neuer, Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka and Serge Gnabry sit out this tie following Bayern’s Champions League triumph.
However, new signing Leroy Sane does feature in a squad which possesses a nice blend of youth and experience.
Established internationals Toni Kroos, Julian Draxler, Ilkay Gundogan and Emre Can should help the hosts control play in midfield.
Chelsea recruit Timo Werner looked sharp when scoring for the Blues in a friendly with Brighton and can provide an attacking threat alongside potential Stamford Bridge team-mate Kai Havertz.
There are some concerns at the back, though, so 18/5 for a home win and both teams to score catches the eye from the Germany vs Spain odds.
A Look At Spain’s Betting Odds
Spain were involved in some entertaining encounters during the 2018-19 Nations League, scoring 12 goals and conceding seven as they split wins with England and Croatia.
La Roja’s Euro 2020 qualifying campaign went smoothly, with eight wins and two draws putting them five points clear at the top of Group F.
However, Luis Enrique’s side were far more convincing on home turf and only drew away to Sweden and Norway, as well as labouring to a 2-1 victory in Romania.
Enrique insists he has selected his strongest squad for this contest, but leaving out strikers Alvaro Morata, Paco Alcacer and Iago Aspas is a gamble.
Leeds new boy Rodrigo has netted eight times for La Roja, but no other front man or midfielder has more than two international goals.
Of course, Sergio Ramos stands out at the back, with 21 from 170 caps, but we just feel this set-up is short on creative talent at this level.
Let’s finish off our Germany vs Spain betting tips by taking 35/4 for a 2-1 home win.
GERMANY 6-1 Northern Ireland – Gnabry (3), Goretzka (2), Brandt
SPAIN 5-0 Romania – Fabian, Gerard (2), Rus (og), Oyarzabal
Head-to-head: Germany 1-1 Spain, Spain 0-1 Germany, Germany 0-1 Spain, Germany 0-1 Spain
