Holland v Germany Euro 2012 Preview & Tips
A sumptuous offering has Holland and Germany square off on the sixth day of Euro 2012. The game is on Wednesday, June 13, at 19:45 GMT.
A loss to Denmark last time out means that this game is all-or-nothing for Holland; if they lose here then they might as well be booking their tickets for home early. Now, only two wins – in this game and against Portugal in the next one – will realistically take Holland through to the knockout stages. This might be too much to ask but you’ll never know; if Denmark surprised Holland last game, there’s no reason why the Dutch can’t do the same to the Germans.
Against the Germans Bert van Marjwik could opt to shuffle his troops. De Jong didn’t have the best of nights against Denmark, so was Afellay and full-backs Willems and Wiel. Robin van Persie too struggled despite his almost-perfect passing accuracy. The Gunner had eight shots the entire night but couldn’t get into the scoresheet. The only bright spot in the Oranje line-up was Wesley Sneijder. However with almost everybody around him succumbing to a lacklustre performance, the Inter Milan playmaker could only do little despite his good play.
Joachim Low was contented with Germany’s modest victory against Portugal. The game that ended 1-0 in favour of the Germans didn’t offer much of a bang but it was surely worth the watch for German fans as their team controlled the majority of the game. Patient in execution and pensive all throughout, Die Mannschaft showed why they are one of the top-contenders this year; never mind big score-lines, results matter the most.
Holland is the strongest of the three teams that Germany has to face in the group stages. Any result in this game will most likely book a quarter-finals appearance for the Germans, with only Denmark standing in their way after this.
Holland v Germany Betting Preview
Both teams cross paths every once in a while but these games are mostly friendlies. The last time both teams met in the Euros was back in 2004, in a 1-1 stalemate that eventually eliminated Germany after the group stages. Revenge will be sweet as in this game the Germans has the chance to do the same to the Dutch. As mentioned, any result here will end the Dutch’s tournament prematurely.
Germany is clearly on top insofar as both teams match up head-to-head. Solid, consistent, and a lot more organizes, the likes of Ozil will definitely take opportunities by the neck and shine on the international stage once again.
Verdict: Germany to win, 2-1.
Tip: Not a lot separates both teams; Holland is at 2.87 to win while Germany is at 2.50. The latter is of course seen to be the likelier eventuality of this match. A repeat of the last round could see both teams go under 2.5 goals, but for this match, a ‘game to go over 2.5 goals at 2.00’ could be the most prominent theme.
Goal scorers anyone? Mario Gomez is still the priority punt at 2.62 to score anytime. Wesley Sneijder and Mesut Ozil are both at 4.00 to hit the back of the net at any moment in the game, and then there’s Arjen Robben who is at 3.75 to get on the score sheet anytime. Possible goal scores come aplenty in this game so take your pick the way you see fit.
