Germany vs Northern Ireland Prediction
In what was essentially a must-win game, the Germans showed up without fail and secured the victory in style. They had several obstacles on their course, but Joachim Low’s men overcame all that, in single-minded pursuit for glory.
They were reduced to ten even before the game-clock showed 15 minutes, and on top of that, the team had to deal with the away handicap as well. Still, after being held till the half-time, the squad hit back with three unanswered goals in the span of 20 minutes, to register a 0-3 victory.
Meanwhile, in what was a must-win match for Northern Ireland, the team messed up and gave up a golden opportunity to cause a massive upset. Sure, they were on the road and had to take on the Dutch. But keep note that the cavalry had held the famous Orange line-up without conceding till the 80th minute, and in fact, was leading 0-1 at that time.
But then, the famed Holland spirit was woken up, which resulted in the hosts slotting in three quick goals to make claim to the three points.
This match-day, the Germans are desperate, and they have the home advantage. Moreover, they have the confidence of defeating this same opponent on the road in the reverse fixture and have years of absolute h2h domination to lean on too.
In addition, Low’s men are experienced in dealing with such high-pressure situations, and to be frank, have been one of the most respected squads in the world for the last several decades.
After their heartbreak in the 2018 World Cup, there’s no way that the four-time world champions will succumb to another upset.
Count on a convincing German win this Monday.
