It’s hard to know what has gone wrong with Germany in the last six months, but whatever is is has resulted in a shocking World Cup and two UEFA Nations League defeats since then. They lost two of their three group matches at the World Cup and since returning home they’ve only managed to beat Peru, draw 0-0 with France and then lose against Netherlands and France in the UEFA Nations League.
Russia had a World Cup to remember and went further than almost everybody expected and were a bit unfortunate to lose on penalties to Croatia in the quarter finals. Since the World Cup their good run has continued and they’ve won two and drawn one in the Nations League, and thrashed the Czech Republic 5-1 in a friendly.
It is impossible to back Germany in this match so for the first of our Nations League betting tips we’re going for Russia to win or draw at odds of 5/2 with bet365.
Goals are expected in this match given that Russia don’t tend to prioritise defending when they place. Couple that with Germany’s poor form and we could be in for a few goals here. Both teams have scored in five of Germany’s last six matches which shows that this is a good option for an anytime goalscorer tip.
Russia scored five goals in their last friendly match at home to Czech Republic and although this looks like a much tougher task, we are going with a Russia player for our Germany vs Russia tips this week.
With captain and main striker Artem Dzyuba missing from this match, Russia will need to rely on their other attacking players to fire and we’re going with Locomotiv Moscow man Fedor Smolov to get on the scoresheet here.
There is still a huge question mark over this Germany side and Russia could take full advantage of that in this friendly. The loss of Dzyuba is a big blow to them for this fixture but we’re still going with a Russia win or draw for our match result betting tips today and we can back that up with a correct score bet. It is hard to see Russia winning this game despite Germany’s poor so we’re going for a draw here and the score prediction is going to be 1-1.
The hosts are partial to a poor result in friendly matches and they’re always one of the big European nations we love to take on for our betting tips. They’ve lost to Mexico at home in the not too distant past.
Germany to win – 3/10
Draw – 9/2
Russia to win – 8/1
Russia are unbeaten in four matches since they hosted a brilliant World Cup and their loss there was on penalties rather than in 90 minutes. They picked up the scalp of Spain in the World Cup and have continued their good form into this season.
The German camp is still reeling from that World Cup debarcle and Mesut Ozil’s retirement from international football sparked yet more problems off the pitch for the 2014 World Cup winners and some say a complete overhaul is needed. A defeat against Russia here would only enhanced that speculation and they face a vital UEFA Nations League match against the Netherlands next week which could see them relegated from the top tier.
Russia double chance – 5/2 with bet365.
Smolov to score anytime – 15/4 with Betway.
1-1 draw – 9/1 with Bet Victor.
