Germany vs Russia Live | International Friendlies | Date: Thursday, 15 November 2018 | Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET | Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig)
Germany will host Russia in a high-level international friendly match on Thursday night at Red Bull Arena. Die Mannschaft hopes to cheer after consecutive defeats in the Netherlands and France in October. They continued to fight after a disappointing exit from the group stage at the World Cup in Russia this summer.
Joachim Low’s men will face the Netherlands for second place in Group 1 on Monday to retain their place in Ligue A. The German manager still believes in Manuel Neuer because goalkeeper Bayern Munich will have the opportunity to replace the red. Marc-André ter Stegen, hot man in Barcelona. Neuer has scored five goals in the last two games against the Netherlands and France.
Russia occupies a much better position in their respective group of the League of Nations. They scored the pace with seven points in three games and will only need a point in the last round against Sweden to secure the first place and win the promotion of the A-League.
Germany vs Russia: face to face
- Germany has been the dominant force in this party throughout history.
- Die Mannschaft won five and made one of six matches with the Russians (goal difference of 25-3 in the process).
- The two teams met for the last time in the World Cup qualifiers in 2009, when the Germans won, both at home and away.
Germany vs Russia: Prediction
Russia left a strong impression in the World Cup and continued to shine in the same way at the beginning of the League of Nations campaign. They won three and tied for the last four games after the World Cup. The team led by Stanislav Cherchesov has scored 11 goals in the last four games while keeping his goal intact in the League of Nations game against Sweden and Turkey in October.
Bookmakers consider Germany to be the favorite of 1.35 here, but we did not find any value in this recent episode. That is why we will argue that Russia does not lose by two goals or more at 1.75 as the main betting option here.
Germany vs Russia: betting odds
- Russia +1.5 handicap @ 1.90 (9/10)
- Both teams score @ 2.20 (11/10)
