With Joachim Low’s men having provided plenty of early entertainment, Al Hain-Cole expects the goalmouth action to unfold straight away in Sochi
Germany will be looking to secure their place in the Confederations Cup semi-finals when they take on Cameroon at the Fisht Olympic Stadium on Sunday.
With four points to their name after two matches, Die Mannschaft are 4/9 (1.44) favourites with dabblebet to make it through to the knockout stages by coming out on top in Sochi.
Meanwhile, Hugo Broos’ side would need to win by a three-goal margin in order to beat their opponents to a top two spot in Group B, but are 13/2 (7.50) outsiders to pull off any sort of victory.
The sides shared a 2-2 draw when they last met in a friendly match three years ago, and you can get odds of 15/4 (4.75) on them cancelling each other out yet again in this one.
Although there were some fears that Joachim Low’s weakened squad would undermine the competition without their biggest star names, few could accuse those players who have travelled to Russia of failing to provide entertainment.
After kicking off the tournament by taking the lead within five minutes before going on to beat Australia 3-2 in their opener, the world champions were soon on the other end of an early goal in an end-to-end 1-1 draw with Chile.
This spate of early action is not a new trend for Low’s men, who have seen the deadlock broken within the opening 20 minutes in each of their last five consecutive fixtures.
In fact, the ball has hit the back of the net prior to the break a total of 14 times in that five-game run, meaning fans would be advised to take their seats in good time at the Fisht Olympic Stadium on Sunday.
With Les Lions Indomptables forced to push forward in search of goals, odds of 13/10 (2.30) certainly seem generous on Germany ensuring over 1.5 first-half goals are scored for their ninth game in 12 here.
