Rated by most bookmakers as the best European hope to win the World Cup, Germany will be hoping to get off to a good start in Group G against Portugal in Salvador.
Die Mannschaft didn't lose a single game in qualification for Brazil 2014 and they look set to justify their tag as Group G favourites by beating Portugal. At a shade below even money in the Match Odds market, Germany look a good bet to make a winning start to the competition and leave Portugal with an uphill struggle to qualify for the Second Round.
The Navigators' defence looks to be their main weakness and Germany possess the attacking talent to expose it, making a 2-0 Correct Score bet worthy of consideration. Marco Reus should be top of the list for First Goalscorer punters given his knack of opening the scoring, while Mesut Ozil makes appeal as an Anytime Goalscorer with his likely responsibility for penalties. Those siding with Paulo Bento's team in this fixture won't stray too far from backing Cristiano Ronaldo to find the net, although towering defender Bruno Alves is a danger from set pieces and they could be Portugal's best chance of breaching the German defence.
