Germany v Sweden betting preview
Germany's defensive collapse against Mexico was staggeringGermany kicked off the defence of their title in disastrous fashion as they recorded a shock 1-0 defeat against Mexico in their opening round. They were all over the place defensively and should have lost by more than just 1-0. Die Mannschaft have only won one of their last seven matches, and they have conceded in 13 of their last 16 outings overall. Since their reunification, Germany are unbeaten in six games against Sweden, winning four times and drawing twice. World Cup defending champions had crashed out of the group stage of the competition in three of the last four edition and Germany will fight to avoid this fate.
Joachim Low could be tempted into changing things up after a such terrible start. Julian Brandt and Marko Reus are in contention to replace Timo Werner up front, while the likes of Thomas Muller, Mesut Ozil and Julian Draxler are likely to play as offensive midfielders. In the middle of the park, Leon Goretzka is pushing for a astart but Sami Khedira and Toni Kroos are still expected to feature from the off. In defense, Jonas Hector is set to start at Marvin Plattenhardt's expense at left-back.
Sweden Sweden are certainly capable of shutting Germany out for large parts of the gameSweden sealed a 1-0 win over South Korea to jointly lead the group with Mexico. They limited the Koreans to just two shots on goal and none on target. Anyway, they came to the World Cup after failing to score in three consecutive warm-up games and still needed a penalty to break the dead lock. This was their first goal in over 340 minutes of football. Zlatan Ibrahimovic's absence, of course, is a key factor. The Scandinavian side are going to frustrate Germany as they did with Italy in their World Cup playoff matches
Victor Lindelof missed the 1-0 win over South Korea through illness, but is set to come in for Pontus Jansson at the back. Any other changes are hardly expected from Janne Andersson, although he could potentially drop one of his two strikers for a more conservative lone striker approach. Anyway, Ola Toivonen and Marcus Berg are expected to be paired in attack with Albin Ekdal, Emil Forsberg, Viktor Claesson and Sebastian Larsson featuring from the off in the middle of the park.
