Spain vs Germany Betting Tips

Germany have traditionally performed well at World Cup tournaments, though they looked more vulnerable than usual during their recent Nations League campaign where they managed to win just one of their six games and they carried their uncertain performances to Qatar, losing 2-1 to a motivated Japan side on matchday one. Spain took command of Group E with a fantastic 7-0 demolition job on Costa Rica and our first prediction tips Luis Enrique’s slick side to take advantage of the German’s current fragility.

Spain to Win – 37/25

Flying winger Ferran Torres scored twice in Spain’s crushing 7-0 win over Costa Rica on Wednesday and the Barcelona man has a blend of pace and technique that should trouble the German defence on Sunday. Torres is also Spain’s designated penalty taker, heightening his chances of adding to his early haul even further.

Anytime Goalscorer – Ferran Torres – 9/4

With both teams holding excellent goal-scoring records, the quoted betting odds seem generous for that outcome.

Spain vs Germany Analysis


Since winning the World Cup for the first time ever in 2010, Spain’s performances at the tournament have regressed and they have struggled to replace the stars from their golden generation. However, their 7-0 drubbing of Costa Rica suggested they could be among the front-runners in Qatar.

Key Players: Pedri, Gavi, Pau Torres

Team news: Spain still favour a 4-3-3 formation under Luis Enrique with Barcelona trio Sergio Busquets, Gavi and Pedri occupying the positions in midfield. That triumvirate was central to their success against Costa Rica.

Predicted Lineup: Simon - Azpilicueta, Rodri, Laporte, Alba - Gavi, Busquets Pedri - Torres, Morata, Olmo


Four-time winners Germany limped to an opening day loss to Japan and with their World Cup destiny in the balance, they will need to find a way to upset the odds against Spain on matchday two.

Key Players: Joshua Kimmich, Ilkay Gundogan, Jamal Musiala

Team news: Head Coach Hansi Flick could make some changes to his team after Germany's poor showing against Japan. Leon Goretzka, Jonas Hofmann and Nilklas Fullkrug will be among those pushing to start.

Predicted Lineup: Neuer - Sule, Rudiger, Schlotterbeck, Raum - Kimmich, Gundogan, Goretzka - Musiala, Muller, Gnabry

Spain vs Germany Prediction

Germany’s lethargic display against Japan on matchday one was met with cutting criticism in their homeland and the pressure to perform against Spain could be too much to bear. In contrast, La Roja were tactically and technically superb in their 7-0 win over Costa Rica and our World Cup betting tip recommends siding with Luis Enrique’s side in this showpiece showdown.
