Under 5.5 Goals
Germany's last two games against Liechtenstein have both ended in victory but under 5.5 goals have been scored on both occasions. We're backing a 4-0 win for the home side this week and a bet on under 5.5 goals being scored in this game has decent odds. Under 5.5 goals have been scored in five of Germany's and five of Liechtenstein's last six international matches across all forms of competition, so you can see why we're not expecting to see more than 5-goals in Thursday.
Serge Gnabry to Score First
Gnabry joint top scores in qualifying for Germany with Werner on 5-goals but Werner is injured and that means Gnabry will be the main source of goals for the home side this week. Gnabry has already scored 20-goals in 31 international matches for Germany and always seems to perform on the international stage. We're backing the former Arsenal man to score the first goal of the game against Liechtenstein on Thursday.
4-0 to Germany
Germany won 2-0 away at Liechtenstein in September and claimed a 4-0 win the last time they played host to this particular opponent, so you can see why we're going with another 4-0 victory on Thursday. Germany have kept clean sheets in four of their last five matches and two of those games ended in 4-0 victories. Liechtenstein's last two qualifiers have both ended in 4-0 defeats and we're expecting another to follow this week.
All you need to know ahead of Germany vs Liechtenstein
Germany expected to win comfortably at home to Liechtenstein
Germany made the trip to North Macedonia expecting a difficult 90-minutes but instead, the visitors romped home to a 4-0 victory. The two sides went in level at the interval goalless, but Havertz broke the deadlock just 5-minutes into the second half. Wener netted a brace to put the result beyond doubt and Musiala made it 4-0 7-minutes from time. Germany are in a position by which they could rest players and afford to drop point but we all know that's just not the German way and we will be expecting a thoroughly professional performance on Thursday.
Liechtenstein suffered a heavy defeat away at Iceland last time out, conceding the first goal of the game after 19-minutes. The next two goals were given away very cheaply and allowed Guomundsson to convert two spot-kicks. A fourth and final goal was forced home 1-minute from the full-time whistle, in what was a disappointing performance from the entire Liechtenstein team.
Germany: Mats Hummels, Robin Gosens, Emre Can, Timo Werner and Kevin Volland haven't made the Germany squad for this week's qualifiers.
Liechtenstein: Ivan Quintans, Marcel Büchel, Philippe Erne and Simon Kühne are the noticeable absentees from the visitor's squad.
