Backing a draw
These are two teams that are really difficult to beat; the Netherlands are currently unbeaten in their last eight games, and they've won six of those games. It's fair to point out that Louis Van Gaal's men have lost just once in their last 16 games; and that loss was mostly because they were down to 10 men in their round of 16 clash in the European Championships. On the other hand, we have a Germany side that has won eight matches in a row. Additionally, meetings between these teams have not been one-sided; both teams have won three games apiece, with three draws between them in their last nine encounters. We believe that both teams will maintain their respective unbeaten runs, and this game will end in a draw.
A high scoring match
Both teams have consistently scored goals over the past year. The Netherlands have scored in their last eight, and 19 of their last 20 games; in fact, they scored 14 goals in their last four games alone. Van Gaal's men have had their fair share of high-scoring games; five of their last seven games went over 3.5, with three of those games going over 5.5. Similarly, Germany have scored 33 goals in their last eight games; and six of their last seven games went above the 2.5 goal mark, with five of those games going over 3.5. Furthermore, clashes between Netherlands and Germany tend to be high-scoring games; as six of their last seven meetings saw at least three goals scored. On that note, this will likely be a high-scoring affair.
