Germany v Sweden Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

Germany will be desperate to bounce back from their shock defeat against Mexico when they take on Sweden in Sochi on Saturday.

The World Cup holders looked completely out of sorts against a motivated Mexican side, who could easily have won by a more convincing scoreline.

Latest Odds

However, having not lost any of the previous 11 encounters with this opposition, they are 4/9 (1.44) favourites with dabblebet to return to winning ways at the first attempt.

Janne Andersson’s team secured a narrow 1-0 victory over South Korea in their opener, but are 13/2 (7.50) outsiders to book their place in the last 16 by coming out on top here.

Two of the last three meetings between this pair have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 7/2 (4.50) on them cancelling each other out once again.

Team News

Joachim Low is likely to make changes after the disappointing opening performance, with Marco Reus, Ilkay Gundogan and Jonas Hector all candidates for a start.

Having missed the opener due to illness, Victor Lindelof could replace Pontus Jansson at the heart of the Blue-Yellow defence.

Solid Sweden

Although undoubtedly concerned by the careless defending that allowed Mexico numerous clear chances, Low should be equally unhappy about his team’s failure to really test the opposition goalkeeper.

With just six goals to their name in seven matches, Germany could now be in for a frustrating 90 minutes against an opposition defence that has only conceded four times in nine fixtures.

Predictions

Having scored just once in four matches themselves and with no reason to take any chances after their opening win, odds of 10/11 (1.95) seem generous on a solid Swedish side that kept Italy at bay in the play-offs ensuring under 2.5 goals.
