Germany vs France: French can avoid defeat to depleted Germany

| 28.02.2012

Considering that France are unbeaten in the past 18 months, it may come as a surprise to see Germany at a short 8/11 to beat them at the Weserstadion.

That said, it is ten games ago since Joachim Low’s side last lost a match, and they have racked up an impressive amount of goals in that time too.

Their visitors are 4/1 to collect what would be a tremendous away win, but the draw could be the most encouraging option at a tempting 11/5.

While France have partaken in three low-scoring draws within their last five matches, Germany have drawn twice in the same amount of time, though each of their matches have featured a significant amount of goals for either side.

France have drawn two of their matches 0-0, and brave punters can back that outcome at 8/1, though each team can be expected to score as they have done in recent German matches.

Germany’s two draws were 2-2 and 3-3, and these scorelines are lengthily priced at 14/1 and 50/1 respectively in this match.

A safer option would be to back both teams to score at 5/6, while backing the score draw could also be a wise move at 7/2.

It is a big 8/1 for France to win with both teams finding the net, and bearing in mind that Germany will be missing the experience of Lukas Podolski, Phillip Lahm, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Per Mertesacker, this price could be worth investing in.

A wide range of goal threats will be on show in this match, and these look to almost certify goals as the likes of Bayern Munich stars Mario Gomez and Franck Ribery take to the field on opposing sides, and Olivier Giroud keen to take his club form into the French national side.

Keeping this in mind, France to win or draw the match with over three goals occurring looks big at 11/4.
