Germany (w): Thirteen unbeaten games ( Recent Form: W W D W W )
15 of the 23 German players currently participate in their first World Cup. Of course, the excitement is great and the routine does not come by itself, but these have to be worked out in tough World Cup games. Even if there is certainly a lack of experience, the quality in the German team is great again this year. The self-confidence should be enormous, because for 13 games now the German ladies are without defeat. Martina Voss-Tecklenburg does not even know how losing as a national coach feels. Let's see if she can also avert the first bankruptcy in a duel against the Spaniards. In general, the bookmakers trust the Olympic champion a little more and therefore are offered in the duel between Germany and Spain and lower odds on a victory of the DFB-Elf. But that was also in the opening match on Saturday against China so and Germany was incredibly difficult. That was because the Chinese faced the young German team with relentless hardship. Almost in every duel there was a sock for the German ladies. But this is just a World Cup and no x-any friendly game. Over 90 minutes, the game Spitz was on the button and could have tilted in the direction of the Chinese after some individual mistakes and a shot from the post of Asian girls. But in the 66th minute Giulia Gwinn showed that she wants to win. After a corner she drove the rebound to make it 1-0 in the net. Nevertheless, Martina Voss-Tecklenburg was not completely satisfied. The national coach, however, assumes that her team will deliver a better match in the second group match. Perhaps Germany will have to give up her playmaker Dzzenifer Maroszan, who has suffered a blistering ankle injury against China. That would be a considerable failure. Otherwise, not much should change in the starting eleven, although Lena Gößling, the very young Lena Oberdorf or Lea Schuller might be options for the first formation.
Spain (w): Need a point ( Recent Form: L W D D W )
The Spaniards have so far not been able to earn any merits on the international stage. At the last two European Championships, it was twice enough to qualify for the quarter-finals. In the only World Cup participation in 2015 you retired in the preliminary round. In club football, you have made significantly larger jumps in recent years. FC Barcelona were in the final of the Champions League a few weeks ago. No less than ten players of this club are in the squad of La Roja. Therefore, the ambitions at this World Cup are quite big. There were ups and downs in the preparation this year. After all, there has been no defeat in the last four games. Except for Vice World Champion Japan, the opponents were not of the highest quality. Everything indicates that the two opponents will meet at eye level on Wednesday. The Spanish newspapers dare before the kick-off between Germany and Spain, the prognosis that a victory of La Roja is in the range of the possible. But it will also require a substantial increase. Spain also struggled in the opening game against South Africa. La Roja had more of the game, but came after 25 minutes with 0: 1 in arrears. Then you bite your teeth for a long time. First as coach Jorge Vilda with Aitana Bonmati. Lucia Garcia and Nahikari Garcia brought fresh impetus, the tide turned. In the 70th and 83rd minute Jennifer Hermoso converted two penalties. In the 89th minute Lucia Garcia put the goal to 3-1 final score. Spain wobbled, but did not fall. It will be important to play against Germany with just as much focus as in the second leg against South Africa. Therefore, we can easily imagine that the three women who came in the first match will get their chance right from the start. Due to injury Jorge Vilda does not have to do without a player. Irina Paredes sees the chances in the duel against the German ladies as balanced. In her opinion, it will depend on trifles. But it is clear that the Spaniards go fully focused in this match against the Olympic champion.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
After all, Spain had not been beaten for four games. That sounds like a draw after all. But because we expected more from Germany than this team has shown against China, also threatens to precipitate a game-defining personality with Dzzenifer Maroszan, we can imagine that the DFB team at least not win.
