Spain vs Germany Prediction & Match Preview

0

THE quarter-finals of Euro 2024 are upon us and the biggest match of the round will kick things off when Spain face Germany in Stuttgart on Friday evening.

The match puts together the two best-performing teams of the tournament in a match that many people were hoping would be the final. Despite it being merely a quarter-final, the team that comes out on top will feel as if a huge hurdle has been navigated on their path to glory.

To reach this stage, Spain came from behind to dismantle a spirited Georgia 4-1 while Germany dispatched Denmark 2-0 in a confident display.

There isn’t much to split the two teams which means crowd support could be a factor. Can the Stuttgart crowd roar Germany on to victory?

Spain are the slight favourites for this quarter-final, thanks to their impressive showing at Euro 2024 thus far. They are the only team to have four wins from four games and they are priced at 8/5 with Betfred with Betfred to make it five in five. Germany are priced at 9/5 to come out on top inside 90 minutes while the draw is 11/5.

The overall Spain vs Germany H2H record makes for fascinating reading. After 26 matches played, Germany have won nine times, Spain have won eight and nine have ended all square. The recent record doesn’t make a case for either team – three of the last four have ended level which suggests extra time is on the cards on Friday.

This is a truly star-studded affair with big names all over the pitch. The most fascinating battle will come in midfield when Rodri will come head-to-head with his former Man City teammate, Ilkay Gundogan.

Gundogan has been operating in the attacking midfield role for Germany at Euro 2024 so will be occupying similar spaces to Rodri, who is widely regarded as the best-holding midfield in world football. Whoever comes out on top in this battle could go a long way to deciding the winner of the match.

In attacking areas, two of the brightest young talents in the world will be on show. At the age of 21, Jamal Musiala is staking his claim as the best young player in the world with three goals in four matches from the left wing

Meanwhile, Spain’s Lamine Yamal may well be the most complete 16-year-old that has ever played the game.

There’s no reason for Spain to change anything given the success they have had against Georgia. The only potential change would be to bring Real Madrid’s Nacho back into the fold in defence after he recovered from a foot injury.

Calls for Niclas Fullkrug to start for Germany persist but Kai Havertz is expected to continue up front. Florian Wirtz could also return to the starting XI at the expense of Leroy Sane while Jonathan Tah is available again after serving his suspension.

Spain: Simon – Carvajal, Nacho, Laporte, Cucurella – Rodri, Pedri, Ruiz – Yamal, Morata, Williams

Germany: Neuer – Kimmich, Rudiger, Tah, Raum – Kroos, Andrich – Wirtz, Gundogan, Musiala – Havertz

Only one of Germany’s matches at Euro 2024 has seen more than two goals scored – their opening 5-1 victory over Scotland. Spain’s matches haven’t been much more high-scoring, with just two of their four games seeing three or more goals. Under 2.5 goals is priced at 8/11 with Betfred.
