This clash between two contenders for the title looks promising. Which of these two old conquerors will get the better of the other? Find information below on what to expect before this long-awaited encounter.
✔ 1×2 Prediction: Spain – Germany
The two teams are coming off rather disappointing performances in the 2018 World Cup. Spain was eliminated at the beginning of the knockout stages by Russia on penalties, whereas Germany was knocked out at the group stages for the first time in its history. The two nations will thus want to put on a very different display in the 2022 World Cup, and we foresee a draw between these two countries.
✔ Exact Score Prediction: Spain vs Germany
In this huge match of the 2022 World Cup, neither team really stands out as the veritable favourite. Spain and Germany are both striving to put on an amazing performance and bring home another World Cup. As for the exact score, we expect to see an extremely close match ending in a draw.
Victory for Spain
This scenario is possible, but we’re having trouble believing that either of these teams will manage to beat its adversary by a large margin. Thus, a score of 1-0 or 2-1 seems to be the most realistic result in the case of a Spanish win.
This seems to us the most likely result. The two teams are not so different, and will both want to impose their authority, but neither team really threatens to completely outdo the other. We predict a final score of 1-1 or 2-2.
Victory for Germany
History reminds us; Germany must never be underestimated, especially in big tournaments and against opponents of the same level. The German team could well prevail, but as we said before, that would be by a fairly small margin, 0-1 or 1-2, for example.
✔ Half-time/Full-time prediction: Spain 1st half; Draw 2nd half
In this encounter, it is difficult to see one team having more possession than the other. However, we can see Spain making a strong start, and putting one away. Then, the Germans will be able to count on their mindset to bring them back into the game and come away with a point.
✔ Scorer Predictions: Spain vs Germany
In important matches, Thomas Müller often shows up. The attacking midfielder of Bayern could once again prove to make the difference, just like his teammate Kai Havertz, who needs to keep up the momentum of a very good Euro. On the Spanish side, Dani Olmo could well find the solution, since he and his club, Leipzig, are well-acquainted with being champions.
✔ Double Chance Scoring predictions: Thomas Müller / Dani Olmo
This match could allow some stars to shine. That’s to say, as we suggested above, this could be an opportunity to see Thomas Müller and Dani Olmo score. Thus, we offer you this double chance scoring prediction.
📄 Match Analysis: Spain vs Germany
Spain finished top of its group in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers. Having faced off against Sweden, Greece, Georgia and Kosovo, Spain qualified easily, with six victories and one draw in 8 closely contested matches.
Much like Spain, Germany qualified for this World Cup with ease. In a group perhaps quite short on competition, populated by North Macedonia, Romania, Armenia, Iceland and Lichtenstein, Flick’s men very easily dominated their group, winning nine out of ten matches and finishing 8 points ahead of their closest runner-up, North Macedonia.
Finalists in the 2021 League of Nations, Spain are on top form, with 8 wins in their last 9 outings. The only cloud on the horizon is the defeat against the French team in the final of the League of Nations.
On the opposite side, Germany has a similar momentum, unbeaten in 11 matches. Certainly, Germany hasn’t come up against any big adversaries (except for, perhaps, the Netherlands, in a friendly which ended in a 1-1 draw), but their bad period seems long gone.
