England v Germany: Weakened hosts to lose out against world champions?

| 09.11.2017

Having successfully qualified for the World Cup in Russia next year, England begin their preparations for the summer with a friendly versus Germany.

But with a number of first team players pulling out of the squad, Gareth Southgate will have to deal with a make-shift Three Lions.

Germany are the reigning World Champions of course, and the odds reflect their status.

Our traders put England out at 12/5 underdogs, with Die Mannschaft Even-money favourites.

Joachim Low’s men have gone well at Wembley too, winning on each of their last three visits.

And Germany are bringing over a strong squad.

While Harry Kane, Dele Ali and Raheem Sterling are all absent, Leroy Sane, Toni Kroos, Mesut Ozil, Mario Gotze and Timo Werner should all feature for the visitors.

With Southgate forced to experiment tonight, Germany -1 looks good at 29/10.

England may be a little light in midfield, but there still have goals in Jamie Vardy and Marcus Rashford.

The duo can get behind any defence, so backing both teams to score is understandably odds-on at 3/4.

Five of the last seven meetings have seen over 2.5 goals, and 19/20 says it happens again.

Vardy is 5/1 to net first, with Rashford and Swansea City striker Tammy Abraham in at 6/1.

We’re 7/2 on the Leicester City ace netting in an England win.

The in-form Werner is favourite to break the deadlock though at 4/1.

The 21-year-old RB Leipzig striker has six goals in nine Bundesliga games this term, and boasts six goals in eight caps for his country.
