Germany vs Belarus Prediction
Belarus was done in by the Dutch contingent the last match-day. The former did have the home advantage, but against the formidable Netherlands team, the home advantage did not count to much. By the time the first half came to an end, the guests were leading 0-2.
Though the home team did hit back in the 54th minute and curtailed the lead, the visitors prevented anymore fight-back, and thus ensured the three points.
Germany could have sown seeds for disaster the last match-day, as they were reduced to just ten on the field. Emre Can saw red in the 14th minute. But still, in spite of the increased pressure by the hosts, the Estonians, the 2014 World Champions scored three goals in a row, without conceding, to post the much-needed three points.
This weekend, with the competition offered by the Dutch, and the risk put in by the Northern Ireland team, Joachim Low’s men have no option but to use their full might. They do have the confidence of the home advantage, and the fact that they are taking on one of the weaklings of the group.
In fact, Belarus would have been the worst of the lot if not for Estonia, and have posted just four points from their seven fixtures. They have scored a total of mere four goals so far, while the Germans have posted the best defensive stats in the group.
Importantly, the Germans hold a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent, and they won the reverse fixture of the battle as well, despite being on the road. Low’s men had an additional clean sheet in the process too.
Taking these observations into account, expect Germany to emerge victorious this match-day.
