Germany vs Argentina Match Preview
Argentina will be without Leo Messi, Sergio Aguero, Mauro Icardi, and Angel di Maria as they travel to Germany for their friendly clash on Wednesday, where Lionel Scaloni looks to Nicolas Otamendi to lead the side at the back and Inter Milan’s in-form Lautaro Martinez in the final third.
Martinez bagged a hat-trick for Albiceleste as they outclassed Mexico (4-0) in September, building on a goalless draw earned against Chile just days beforehand. It is fair to say they’ve seen such struggles for consistency through the most of the year, which could come as a worry ahead of the trip to Dortmund – despite seeing the rivals through a similar shift.
Indeed, Manuel Neuer (who will probably see Marc Ter Stegen taking his place on the day) is the only name on the German team sheet you’ll see both in the sides’ World Cup Final clash back in 2014 and now. Joachim Low has been harsher with the selection and now sees leaders in Marco Reus, Ilkay Gundogan, as well as young Joshua Kimmich while also looking to in-form Serge Gnabry and Timo Werner for goals.
Die Mannschaft do seem to be in a better place at this point and they have more players enjoying top-flight football in this setup. This, together with their need for a pick-me-up ahead of their EURO 2020 Qualifiers trip to Estonia, has us giving them an advantage in search of their fifth win in six outings.
We will thus back Germany to win at 4/5 with bet365 and hope they can show off in front of the home fans this time around, picking up the impressions after a 2-4 loss to the Netherlands suffered in Hamburg just a month ago.
We should be in for another exciting occasion between the sides, though, and we feel they’ll have to outgun the rivals to secure such success. We’ll thus also go for goals and back Over 2.5 Goals FT at 4/5 with William Hill, which seems like a solid approach to the fixture too.
