Germany vs Poland by Rainbow-Bet
Top match in group C are on the agenda today, kick off at Stade de France at 21.00 (CET). Ruling World Cup champions Germany meet Poland, both teams with three points after their first group match.
Germany grabbed an expected 2-0 win against Ukraine in their first match in this group. Struggled a bit in the beginning against a compact and defensively Ukraine side, but centre back Shkodran Mustafi header made it 1-0, substitute Bastian Schweinsteiger secured a 2-0 win for the Germans in the 92.minute. Germany looked comfortable through the whole match, and wasn't stressed when the goals didn't come from the chances, the team machine Germany looks strong from the beginning in this years EUROs.
Marco Reus (Dortmund) and Ilkay Gundogan (Manchester City) was unfortunately forced to withdraw from the Germany EURO squad after injuries. It's exciting to see if the solid and important centre back Mats Hummels will be ready to start in this match. If the newly signed Bayern Munich player will be fit for fight this evening, Lewandowski and Poland will have a big challenge to break down the German defense.
Germany and Poland played in the same qualification group ahead of the EUROs, and finished on a 1st and 2nd spot, with 22 and 21 points each. At home in Germany the hosts won 3-1, while Poland took a strong 2-0 win in Warsaw.
Germany coach Joachim Löw is well-known for his formation and player changes to make another match scenario, and surprised in the last match with a 4-2-3-1 with little Mario Götze up front. Today we'll perhaps see Thomas Müller up top, he played on the right side behind Götze last match, without impressing. We believe Müller is on his best in a striker position or in a 10-role right behind the main striker. There are big expectations to this player in this tournament, also when it comes to goals. Müller is only 26 years old, but plays with extreme experience, and he's great in finding the right spaces and get into good scoring positions. We're sure Müller will shine today.
Expected lineup Germany:
Höwedes – Boateng – Mustafi – Hector
Khedira – Kroos
Götze – Özil – Draxler
Poland beat Northern Ireland 1-0 in their first match, that result gives them an opportunity to play without pressure in today's match. Struggled a long time against Northern Ireland who was solid and disciplined defensively, Poland striker Arkadiusz Milik played in a 10-role behind Lewandowski and became match winner. Poland got an exciting, hard-working and disciplined team. Centre back Glik (Torino) and midfielder Krychowiak (Sevilla) are typical examples on hard-working Poland players who never gives up. A lot of tempo on their right side with former Dortmund teammates Piszczek and Blaszczykowski. Lewandowski at the striker role doesn't need any further mention, the Bayern Munich striker is world class.
A big problem for Poland is the injury of their first choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny (Roma). But Poland's got on of the tournaments best goalkeeper trios in mentioned Szczesny, in addition to Lukasz Fabianski (Swansea) and Artur Boruc (Bournemouth). But the injury of the 1,96 cm high goalkeeper is still a big blow for Poland where he's a clear first choice.
Expected lineup Poland:
Piszczek – Glik – Pazdan – Jedrzejczyk
Blaszczykowski – Krychowiak – Maczynski – Kapostka
We believe Die Mannschaft will deliver today and at the same time that their top scorer from last World Cup in Brazil (2014) Thomas Müller will get on the score sheet. Müller scored 5 goals in World Cup 2014, only beaten by Colombia's James Rodriguez (6 goals), today the goals should come from the German. With Poland's Szczesny injured combined with a potential striker role for Müller in today's match, are increases the chances for the player getting into scoring positions, and we all know what will happen.....Müller goal!
