Brazil vs Germany by Topspin77
Germany has been the name of a total failure so far with defeats in the semifinals in 2006 and 2010. They have lost in the semifinal of European Championship in 2012 and has lost the final in 2008. Being a German is not a happiness to pass the groups, they are used to the heights of the competition. But will be hard for this team to win the World Cup.
The two sides are among the worst teams in their history. Both national sides have played spectacular over the years, while the actual sides are having a lot of Italian attitude, defending and being clinical at maximum.
I will avoid a bet on Germany. Without Neymar is a clear sign of weakness for Brazil. Without Thiago Silva even more. But Brazil has been extremely efficient. They are playing home and in their history lost just 4 times with Germany winning 12 times. Add to the fact that Brazil will have a lot of defensive midfielders on the pitch: probably Ramires, Luis Gustavo, etc. David Luzi and Dante are solid defenders and excellent headers and Brazil can speculate a free kick.
Germany needed the old man Klose to win a point with Ghana and are playing the same tactic with all the teams. Brazil had a different tactic at every match. Felipao is World Champion with Brazil and has a much bigger experience than Low.
I see a very tactical game with under 2 goals.
Brazil (4-2-3-1): Julio Cesar – Maicon, David Luiz, Dante, Marcelo – Luiz Gustavo, Fernandinho – Hulk, Oscar, Ramires – Fred
Germany (4-3-3): Neuer – Lahm, J. Boateng, Hummels, Höwedes – Schweinsteiger, Khedira, T. Kroos – Ozil, Muller, Podolski
