Here is the best bet for England’s Wembley clash with Germany

| 19.11.2013

With 127 markets available for England’s friendly with Germany, there is certainly no shortage of betting opportunities to get stuck into.

The 23/20 that at least one team fails to score at Wembley is a tempter, given that this scenario has occurred in four of England’s last five games, alongside three of Germany’s last five.

Roy Hodgson’s starting 11 has also been revealed and the knowledge that Wayne Rooney will play from the off has to be a plus to the 11/5 that he is on target at any point in the 90 minutes, as he has been in two of England’s last three outings.

However, the most lucrative bet may well prove the 29/20 that the second period is the half with the most Germany goals scored.

In Germany’s seven internationals since June, they have scored more times after half-time than before the break on five occasions, which includes all three of their goals away to the USA and four of their five when travelling to Sweden.

England are hardly watertight in the second period either, as they have conceded at least once after half-time in each of the last three fixtures where they have been breached.

What’s more, the Germans had netted in the 75th minute or later in six games on the bounce, until their draw in Italy on the same night England were beaten by Chile.

Therefore, the 10/11 that either team scores between the 75th minute and the final whistle at Wembley is more than fair, while it may be worth accepting the 19/10 that it is Germany that net in this time bracket.

For those wanting to keep betting on this clash as simple as possible, Germany are slight favourites at 13/10, with England 19/10 and the draw on offer at 12/5.
