Netherlands – Germany 14.11.2012
This tip should be a banker. We have statistics and tradition on our side. And if we add the moment of friendly match that will be played at Ajax Arena, and some changes in both squads which will surely result of poorer defence than usual, the game should finish most surely in more than or at least 3 goals scored.
Netherlands played 6 friendlies this year. Their goal avarage in these games is very high 4.5. Their last 3 games of World Cup Qualifications finished with high results also. The last game they beat up Romania away by 1-4, before Netherlands trashed Andorra by 3-0 and demolished Hungarian national team at their house by 1-4 result again. It was announced that both team stars Robbie van Persie and Arjen Robben will be in first 11. This team plays extremely offensive style of football…
The Germans love goals and have played 4 friendlies this year with 4.25 goal avarage on their matches. Today they will be without Bastian Schweinsteiger, Toni Kroos, Marcel Schmelzer and Jerome Boateng. This is not any disadvantage for Loew’s side since he big number of very talented players to choose from. Some of the names like Mesut Oezil, Thomas Mueller, Per Mertesacker, Lukas Podolski and Miroslav Klose are all expected to be in the starting lineup. This fact tell me that the Germans will attack and search for an openening goal, probably.
In the new history, from 2010 there was 3 mathes between this two teams. They finished all in many scored goals. I don’t see a reasson why we should not see an interesting game tonight.
Last time these two met was at Euro 2012 when the Germans win by 2-1 result.
