YOU’RE probably fed up betting on international friendlies by now but Germany v England is always played competitively.
Their meeting in Berlin is a friendly in name only and should be a cracking contest and hopefully with plenty of goals.
Picking a winner isn’t easy as neither side will want to lose ahead of the Euro 2016 finals where both nations are expected to go well. England will be less experienced with the likes of Danny Rose making his first start and Jack Butland in for the injured Joe Hart.
Roy Hodgson has named his team and it’s: Butland, Clyne, Rose, Cahill, Smalling, Henderson, Dier, Welbeck, Alli, Lallana and Kane.
We know from the qualifiers how leaky the Germans were. Scotland scored against them home and away and their only clean sheet in the past year was against Gibraltar.
Joachim Low’s men have conceded seven in their last five outings against France, Georgia, Ireland, Scotland and Poland since beating Gib 7-0.
The only time England failed to score in the last 12 months was a tough friendly defeat in Spain. Both teams to score pays 10-11 at William Hill and Ladbrokes while over 2.5 goals is a tad bigger at 19-20 (bet365).
World champions Germany look to have a stronger squad on paper with the likes of Mesut Ozil, Marco Reus, Thomas Muller, Max Kruse and Mario Gotze all involved.
England have Raheem Sterling and Wayne Rooney as well as Hart but there is plenty of youthful energy in the side.
Kane is 9-4 with bet365 to finish as top England scorer at Euro 2016 and that looks a decent bet.
Drinkwater has been cut to evens by bet365 to make the final cut for Euro 2016 with Rose 4-7. Daniel Sturridge is an interesting one at 2-5 – and surely he’ll be on the plane if fully fit.
