Confederations Cup Betting: Australia vs GermanyPublished June 19, 2017 by Sol FH
The 2017 Confederations Cup is underway with a big matchup that should be great to watch at 16:00 GMT from Sochi.
Back in March when Germany met Australia in a friendly match, it ended in a 2-2 draw. Aussies were thrilled with the result, as few teams are able to score on the German powerhouse, let alone 2 goals and a draw. Today, we have the opportunity to see these two teams square-off yet again in their Confederations Cup match today from Olimpiyskiy Stadion Fisht, in Sochi, Russia, and both teams have excellent records since their last Cup matchup in 2005.
Australia's National Team has been on a tear, losing just one of their last 19 competitive matches. The Germans have recorded 8 wins and 2 draws over their last 10, and they are both healthy going into today's head-to-head. Since winning the 2014 World Cup, Germany has made a lot of changes to its roster and there are only 3 remaining players on the squad since that feat. Shkodran Mustafi, Matthias Ginter and Julian Draxler, are the most experienced players that the Germans have. Australia actually has more Confederations Cup experience. The Asian Champions are making their fourth appearance in the tournament and hope for the most successful berth to date.
There are a number of Aussies that play in the Bundesliga including Mitch Langerak and Mathew Leckie, Jamie MacLaren and former Bayer Leverkusen, Robbie Kruse. The match will undoubtedly feature some fantastic action with two heavily talented teams that both love to attack early and often. The real question is, can the Socceroos withstand the German offense, or break through its defense in a competition and not just a friendly?
