The wise owls of the Deutscher Fussball Bund have chosen lowly Armenia as Germany’s final pre-World Cup opponents and Die Mannschaft are heavy 1/10 favourites to bid the fatherland farewell with a victory in Mainz.
After a very encouraging World Cup qualifying campaign Armenia are arguably done a disservice by odds of 12/1 about an away victory and 11/1 on the draw.
Yet the German front four that started the recent friendly against Cameroon hit 53 goals and 44 assists across domestic league and Champions League action last term and the suspicion persists that they may put their guests to the sword.
Here are three news.bwin.com/en/-approved ways to profit from a goal-strewn send off for Joachim Low’s men.
Germany (-2) to beat Armenia @ 3/4
A 6-1 victory over the Republic of Ireland is the sole occasion during 21 matches over the last two campaigns in which Mesut Ozil and co have surmounted a three-goal handicap, so pragmatism must prevail.
Armenia have conceded at least twice in five of their seven of their eight outings in 2013/14.
Germany to win in a match of over 3.5 goals @ 4/5
The Per Mertesacker-stewarded Die Mannschaft backline conceded at an average rate of a strike a game in qualifying and proved their generosity has yet to be curtailed in the 2-2 draw with Cameroon last time out.
Combining the home win with an overs bet allows punters to harness their defensive fallibility in pursuit of surmounting the goal-line threshold.
Germany to score more times in the second half @ 23/20
The last five fixtures in which Germany have netted more than once have seen the majority of their goals fired after the break.
With substitutes from an enviable silo of attackers sure to be making an appearance, all keen to make their cases to their manager, don’t expect that to change.
