With a slightly favourable draw in the knockout rounds should they qualify out of the group in first place, three-time winners Germany will aim to reach the Semi-finals for a fourth consecutive World Cup tournament.
The 2002 runners-up have managed back-to-back Third Place finishes in the last two tournaments and will arrive at the 2014 World Cup as a dark horse to win the tournament – as they look to add to their 1954, 1974 and 1990 triumphs.
HOW GERMANY GOT TO THE 2014 WORLD CUP
Dropping just two points in qualifying - after throwing away a 4-0 lead to draw at home to Sweden - Germany were one of the most dominant sides in UEFA Qualifying, as they topped UEFA Group C ahead of the Scandanavians.
Scoring an impressive 36 goals on their way to automatic qualification for the 2014 World Cup, there was only one game that Germany failed to score three goals in - a 2-1 away win in Austria.
GERMANY MANAGER AND TRACK RECORD
Starting as predecessor Jurgen Klinsmann's assistant with Germany, Joachim Low took hold of the managerial reins following the 2006 World Cup.
Low has helped to oversee a re-development of German football, which has led to the three-time winners recording Third Place finishes at the last two World Cup tournaments - as well as a Euro 2008 runners-up spot.
GERMANY KEY PLAYER
Nominated for the 2010 World Cup Golden Ball, Germany's Mesut Ozil is sure to be among the front-runners for the award again this time around.
The 25-year-old has scored 17 goals in 52 appearances and has been in excellent form with Arsenal this season - following a rumoured £42.5million move from Real Madrid last August.
Bringing an added finesse to the German line-up, Ozil's knack for assisting his team-mates will surely prove to be fruitful once more in Brazil - after he was one of the top assist providers for both the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012.
GERMANY 2014 WORLD CUP BETTING TIP
Expected to be crowned Group Winners in Group G, Germany should have a favourable route to the last four if they qualify out of the group in top spot.
Despite potential clashes with Belgium and/or France, Germany wouldn’t face a really hard test until they reach the semi-final, where they'd meet Brazil.
With the host nation favourites to lift the trophy in the 2014 World Cup betting markets, expect Germany to be eliminated in the semi-final.
