World Cup: Germany v Japan Free Bets, Betting Tips & Match Preview


Germany will be desperate to get off to a flying start as they face Japan in their opening World Cup Group E game on Wednesday afternoon.

After a torrid past few years, the Germans are undergoing a transformation under Hansi Flick, and they will be hoping to do better than they have done in their last two major tournaments, exiting before the quarter-finals.

Competition for starting berths will be fierce, and Thomas Muller, who is known as the ‘assist king’ isn’t necessarily assured of a spot in the starting XI.

Japan, meanwhile, have overhauled their squad under Hajime Moriyasu, and they have a strong defence heading to Qatar.

Can Germany quell their detractors?

We have given you the full lowdown on this game, and we have picked out a couple of tips for you to add to your betting slips.

Germany v Japan Match Preview

Honours even

After scaling the heights in 2014, Germany are targeting a record-equalling fifth World Cup triumph. But Die Mannschaft have been through a wobble and they are still trying to get back to the team of yesteryear. Indeed, they finished third in their Nations League group, which was far from ideal preparation for the World Cup.

Defensively, they appear to be rather vulnerable as they don’t boast world-class full backs, and there is no out and out goalscorer, even though Kai Havertz will put his hand up to be given a central striking role.

Japan, meanwhile, boast plenty of energy and vibrancy, and they will look to cause Germany problems. When the sides last met in an international friendly, it ended in a 2-2 draw.

I have a predilection that this could well be another draw as Germany could gift plenty of chances. This outcome is available at 3/1 with bet365 if you wish to follow up on that.

Daizen Maeda to make his mark

Blessed with quick feet, Daizen Maeda has lit up Scottish football plying his trade with Celtic, and he will certainly be one to pay attention to.

Although he’s been far from prolific this season, netting just four times in all competitions for Celtic, he can be a fox in the box, and Germany should not underestimate him.

Maeda is the sort of player that likes to make defenders panic, and he could well make his mark.

If you like the look of the goalscorer markets, then you can find a tempting price of 9/1 advertised by William Hill for Maeda to score the last goal of the game which could be worth pursuing.
