The Confederations Cup
Match start: 16:00 (GMT+2)
Just after the Bundesteam’s draw in the match of the second round against Chile (1:1) the head coach of the national team of Germany Joachim Löw has declared:
“We came to the tournament with experimental squad but, nevertheless, we have the aim to get the trophy. But if we don’t become the winners of our group than we will face Portugal in the semifinal. Still we have a chance to fight for the first line in the group”.
The Confederations Cup regulations
The Confederations Cup tournament in Russia has some differences, while comparing with the majority of the UEFA tournaments – if two or more teams have the equal amount of points the most important factor becomes the total difference of scored and missed goals. And if, according to this factor, Chile or Germany by the results of the group stage will be equal than the first place takes the team having scored in three matches the highest number of goals.
Minimal advantage of the South America Champion
On Sunday will be held two last matches in the second quartet: Chile-Australia and Germany-Cameroon.
Now Chile and Germany have earned the same amount of points (4) and won’t be surprised if according to the results of two forthcoming matches the total amount won’t be increased up to 7 points. And then we will deal with the total goal difference. And by this factor the Champion of South America has only minimal advantage: Chile - 3:1 (+2), Germany – 4:3 (+1).
And now let us remind Joachim Löw’s statement. It happens that in the forthcoming meeting against the underdog of the group, Lars Stindl, Julian Draxler, Leon Goretzka and their partners have to score Cameroon one more goal than Chile will score Australia.
For example, Germany will win with the score 3:0 and Chile with the score 2:0. And with the similar goal difference Bundesteam will become the winner of the group thanks to the higher number of scored goals and will avoid the match against Portugal.
Germany– 1.37, draw – 5.37, Cameroon – 9.68;
