Date: on the 17th of June, 2018 (Sunday)
Match start: 16:00 (GMT+1)
Tournament: FIFA World Cup, group F, 1st round
Germany (the head coach Joachim Löw)
During previous World Cup 2014 in Brazil Bundesteam has easily won a champion title (1954, 1974, 1990, 2014) for the fourth time in the history. And then, according to FIFA regulations, the title of the World champion has got all 23 football players who were included by Joachim Löw into the bid. And even those football players who didn’t come on the field.
And the goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, full guards Philipp Lahm, Jérôme Boateng, Benedikt Höwedes, Mats Hummels, midfield players Mesut Özil, Toni Kroos, Bastian Schweinsteiger, and, of course, the best goal-scorer of the World champions Thomas Müller (5 scored goals) became the most irreplaceable players of the German national team four years ago.
Undoubtedly, for the last four years the squad of Bundesteam has considerably changed. And from the former team leaders only Manuel Neuer, Jérôme Boateng, Mats Hummels, Mesut Özil, Toni Kroos and Thomas Müller were included into the modern team of Joachim Löw. Together with these football players, new leaders of the national team at FIFA World Cup in Russia can be Julian Draxler, Sami Khedira, Leroy Sane and Timo Werner.
Mexico (the head coach Juan Carlos Osorio)
Of course, by the presence of superstars in the starting lineup of the highest level Joachim Löw ‘s team is one of the bright favorites of the forthcoming FIFA World Cup in Russia. Here only France, Spain, Belgium and Argentina can fight with Bundesteam.
There are, of course, recognized leaders in the starting lineup of the most popular team of CONCACAF. This is, first of all, the irreplaceable basic midfielder of
Betis, Spain Andrés Guardado who has already spent nearly 150 matches for Mexico, and, of course, the best goal- scorer of the team Javier Hernandez (Chicharito).
But the problem is, that having lost the place in the starting lineup of Manchester United, the idol of the Mexican fans Chicharito as a part of the middle level team (West Ham) in frames of the EPL has considerably lowered his speed and therefore now obviously doesn’t correspond to the status of the best forward of the favorite.
Bookmaker coefficients on the match Germany vs Mexico
And such leaders of Mexico as Andrés Guardado and Chicharito, is possible to count on fingers of one hand. And therefore now the current rivals, using the terminology of strength sports are in absolutely different “weight categories”. That is why there are absolutely different bookmaker quotations.
Today on quite predictable victory of Bundesteam bookmakers propose such coefficient – 1.48 while the most devoted fans of Mexico hope to increase the sum of the bet more than by eight times – 8.60.
It is unlikely that during the first match of the group F some intrigue will happen. The difference in the level and the class of the game of rivals is very big. Undoubtedly, Joachim Löw ‘s team from the first minutes will establish the total control of the ball and will shake the defense of Mexico defense. And then, having achieved success, the World champions will gain the final victory.
Germany – 1.48, draw – 4.55, Mexico – 8.60;
