A new era for Germany as they head into their second game of the Euro 2020 qualifiers away to Belarus. The Germans began with a thrilling 3-2 win over the Netherlands and will be looking to add to that against bottom of Group C Belarus. Form Labs bring you their betting preview and tips for the game while we have the value with our selection of enhanced odds.
Rebuilding Period For Germany
Germany may have won the World Cup as recently as 2014, but a group stage exit in Russia last summer plus relegation in the inaugural UEFA Nations League has seen a change in approach from head coach Joachim Löw.
Few of those who triumphed in Brazil remain in the squad and aside from captain Manuel Neuer, no player has reached the 50-cap milestone, though PSG midfielder Julian Draxler is only one shy of that tally.
In fact, aside from Neuer, Marco Rues and third-choice goalkeeper Sven Ulreich (who is only in the squad because of injuries to both Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Bernd Leno), everyone else selected is the right side of 30 – with the majority 25 years old or younger.
Joachim Löw will actually miss this round of qualifiers having been hospitalized after dropping a dumbbell on his chest, but it shouldn’t have any great impact on the outcome of this game.
Belarus opened their qualification campaign with 4-0 and 2-1 defeats away to the Netherlands and Northern Ireland respectively, while Die Mannschaft got revenge on their bitter Dutch rivals following the Nations League debacle with a 3-2 win Amsterdam in their only qualifier to date.
Belarus v Germany Betting Tips
Belarus excelled in the Nations League but the standard of opposition they’ll face here is a world away from fixtures with Luxembourg, Moldova and San Marino.
Germany have consistently delivered in Euro or World Cup qualifiers, winning 37 of 41 since September 2010, and they’ve not been shy about tanking teams with Norway, Azerbaijan and San Marino all beaten by at least three clear goals both home and away in the last campaign.
Germany’s youthful team should enjoy playing against an ageing Belarus side, and we’d expect the hosts to be chasing shadows by the end of this clash.
