Germany is one of the world’s leading soccer powerhouses. The German national team has won four World Cups and is always one of the favorites when it comes to the top event. Now, at the Qatar 2022 World Cup, they will try to reverse the poor image they showed at Russia 2018, where they were knocked out in the first round, something atypical. Germany vs. Japan is a Group E match (which also includes Spain and Costa Rica) that will be the first step for the Teutons.

These four years have seen a generational change and, more importantly, a change in the direction of the project. Hansi Flick replaced Joachim Löw, who achieved glory at Brazil 2014. Japan may be a good opponent to start with. The Asian team, despite not being at their best, always makes things difficult thanks to their speed and the stars that play in European leagues.

At JefeBet we offer you odds and predictions, as well as all the information about both teams in this Germany vs Japan clash.

Betting on Germany

Germany vs Japan Predictions Picks Betting Odds Group Stage

It is not easy for a national team with as much history as Germany’s to face a transition like the one that has taken place over the past four years. After the debacle that was Russia 2018, where they failed to make it out of the group stage, the successful cycle of Joachim Löw came to an end and Hansi Flick was brought in as coach.

So far, everything is still to be seen. The European Championship was a fiasco, as they also failed to advance from the round of 16 after being eliminated by runner-up England. And this year they managed only three victories in the nine matches they played, two of them against lesser rivals such as Israel and the recent one against Oman (the remaining one was against Italy). Too little for what such a squad can provide.

Will Timo Werner be missing the World Cup due to his recent injury? Who will be the goalkeeper in the debut, a historic Manuel Neuer or Barcelona star Marc-André Ter Stegen? In a few days, we will know.

Possible lineup (4-2-3-1): Manuel Neuer, Lukas Klostermann, Antonio Rüdiger, Matthias Ginter, David Raum, Ilkay Gundogan, Leon Goretzka, Serge Gnabry, Kai Havertz, Leroy Sane, Youssoufa Moukoko.

Japan Preview

The Japanese team had a good qualifying campaign, but finished second behind Saudi Arabia (and ahead of Australia), with only two defeats in ten matches (to Oman at home and to the Saudis away).

Although they are a team that always creates inconveniences for their opponents, this Japan seems less reliable. In the three preparatory matches for Qatar, they won against the United States, drew with Ecuador and lost to Canada. Takefusa Kubo and Takumi Minamino, who have played in Europe’s top leagues, are the two big names in the team coached by Hajime Moriyasu.

Possible lineup (4-3-3): Shuichi Gonda, Hiroki Sakai, Shogo Taniguchi, Ko Itakura, Hiroki Ito, Gaku Shibasaki, Takumi Minamino, Ao Tanaka, Yuki Soma, Takuma Asano, Takefusa Kubo.

JefeBet Prediction

Germany should get rid of a troublesome opponent like Japan without too much effort. Their collective strength will be the key to winning clearly and thinking about the decisive duel with Spain to win the group.

Prediction: Germany wins by 3 to 1.
