Germany- Euro Qualifiers

Match Date: 14 November 2014 (local time)

 

Georgia vs. Poland

Georgia’s 3-0 win over Gibraltar gives them the confidence to face the strong Polish side. However, in terms of overall team form, the squad’s chances of snatching a win are slim.

 

Speaking of Poland, the squad currently dominates the group with seven (7) points and could use this advantage to gain the upper-hand in their upcoming match. Despite its massive display of strength, Poland still feels the pressure of proving that their 2-0 win over the recently crowned World Cup champion and online betting favorite, Germany, was not a product of sheer luck.

 

Prediction: 1-3

 

Germany vs. Gibraltar

A win, a loss and a draw—it seems that Die Mannschaft is still intoxicated with their World Cup success that they could not perform well in the European Cup. Although they are the evident favorite of the match, they should prove it via securing three (3) points.

 

Unfortunately, Germany will miss the services of Andre Schurrle, who is suffering from an infection and Marco Reus, who is having troubles with his ankle.

 

Prediction: 0-5

 

Scotland vs. Republic of Ireland
