Germany vs Japan: Football Whispers' free betting tips

Group E gets underway today when Germany go up against Japan. Not many people have been talking up Germany's chances of winning the 2022 World Cup but a win today against Japan might throw Germany's name back into the mix of potential winners in Qatar.

Germany & Over 2.5 Goals

Germany have picked up a draw and a win from their two previous games against Japan, both of which produced over 2.5 goals. Germany head into the game as the favourite and have won two of their last four matches in all competitions, including a 5-2 win over Italy in the Nations League. Three of Japan's last six matches have ended with at least three goals being scored, adding further weight to our prediction.

Both Teams to Score

Both teams scored when these two countries last locked horns in 2006, where the game ended in a 2-2 draw, and we're backing at both teams to find the back of the net once again. Both teams have scored in four of Germany's last six outings in all competitions with their only clean sheet during that period coming against Oman. Japan have scored 11-goals in their last five matches and look a real threat going forward and we expect the underdogs to test the German defence.

We're going to take a look at the very latest odds for today's Group E clash between Germany and Japan.

Germany odds: 17/35 (1.49)

Draw odds: 19/5 (4.80)

Japan odds:13/2 (7.50)

Well, it's clear to see who the bookmakers believe is going to win today but after Saudi Arabia beat Argentina, you really can't count any side out before a ball has been kicked and Japan are a team will qualify in all areas and are experienced at major tournaments.

Like us, the bookmakers seem to think that this game will have goals in it as you can back Over 2.5 Goals to be scored at around 33/50 this morning, while Under 2.5 Goals odds currently stand at 31/21. We”ve backed Both Teams to Score and the bookies seem to agree with that as the average odds are around 6/7 right now with BTTS – No at 11/10.

Will Japan manage to put up a fight here?

Germany

There is no doubt that Germany is one of the best football teams in the world, but their recent results haven't been as great as we are used to seeing from them. After all, the team failed to get out of their group at World Cup in Russia, lost to England at Euro 2020 in the Round of 16, and, in the meantime, finished third in their group in UEFA Nations League, behind Italy and Hungary.

So, Germany might not be in the best of forms ahead of the upcoming World Cup, but the quality is there. Their coach Hansi Flick can count on many big names, including the team's captain Thomas Muller. Next to him, there are more than a few Bayern Munich stars like Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane, Joshua Kimmich, and the young phenom Jamal Musiala, so that's a pretty solid base of players who play together every day.

Japan

After failing to qualify for World Cup until 1998, Japan qualified for each World Cup since then, so this will be their seventh appearance on the biggest football stage. The team also established itself as one of the best in Asia, having won the Asian Cup four times, more than any other team.

Obviously, Japan's chances in a group with two European giants such as Germany and Spain are not that high, but this is a solid team with some interesting players that play in Europe. For example, experienced defender and captain of the team, Maya Yoshida, along with Takumi Minamino and Real Sociedad's youngster Takefusa Kubo.
