Ghana vs Germany – betting tips, match preview and prediction

World Cup BettingGermany will play Ghana in their last group match at World Cup today at 19:30 BST in Johannesburg at Soccer City stadium. All four sides can still reach the knockout stage, but before the final matches in group D, Ghana have the best cards at their disposal by leading the group, while Germany most likely has to win to avoid elimination.

Match Preview

Germany’s World Cup performance has been up and down, with the 4-0 victory against Australia being their high and the 1-0 loss to Serbia being their bottom. Most experts expected Germany to run over Serbia, but a red card to Miroslav Klose early on changed the game and eventually cost Germany the match. Despite being 10 men for must of the game, they did actually manage to put some pressure on the Serbs and even missed a penalty in the process. Their tempo was quite slow though compared to their first match, but one would expect them to play at full speed again tonight against Ghana.

The Black Stars are once again bearers for the African sides at the World Cup in a very disappointing performance for the host continent. At the World Cup in Germany four years ago Ghana reached the 1/8-finals and ironically the German’s are now their last obstacle to reach a similar achievement. Ghana’s preparation for the match has been interrupted by a bizarrely incident; when Sulley Muntari was sent home and then called back to the team after insulting comments to coach Milovan Rajevac. Hopefully they will manage their internal problems better than the France side did, as it will surely be necessary against a strong German side. At the same time they must perform better than against Australia to win tonight, but the fact that a draw will be enough must give them some hopes of qualifying to the last 16.

Team Updates

We do expect Germany to make a few changes for the game tonight following their match against Serbia. At moment they will surely have to do without Miroslav Klose due to his suspension, and he will likely be replaced with Cacau up front.

Ghana will have John Mensah and Issac Vorsah back from a calf and knee injury tonight, but it is unknown whether they will start. The troubled Inter Milan player Sully Muntari should be in the squad again as well, after apologizing for his behavior in the match against Australia.

Ghana vs Germany betting tip

Our betting pick will be Germany to win at odds 1.44 at 888 sports.

If you look at the two sides performances in the tournament, it will be hard to bet against Germany tonight. In their first match they played some of the best football at the World Cup so far and although playing slow against Serbia due to a red card, they did create chance and missed a penalty in the game. On the other hand Ghana did win 1-0 against Serbia, which is a great result in itself. But the victory came on cheap background against Serbia, which never really hit the day or anything else for that matter. Our match prediction will be Germany to win the match and most likely comfortably with a 3-1 or 4-1 result.

Players looking for more valuable odds for the Ghana and Germany match should therefore consider the -1 handicap win for Germany.
