World Cup F – Germany to cruise low scoring group


Group F: Germany, Mexico, Sweden, South Korea

Defending champions Germany (28/1 to win all matches in the tournament) should be able to progress at a canter, despite some controversial selection decisions.

Joachim Lowe’s choice to leave Leroy Sane, Emre Can and Mario Gotze at home may come back to haunt him, but their absences should make little difference in the group stages.

Germany are 9/4 to reach the final on July 15, while the four-time winners can be backed at evens to make the last four.

The battle for second spot is tough to call, with not much separating the other three teams – South Korea, Sweden and Mexico (2/1 – Over 4 Points: Group Points).

None of trio have been prolific in front of goals in recent times, with the odd goal likely to prove crucial when they play each other.

Sweden (20/33 to be eliminated at the group stage) have scored just three times in their last six games, South Korea (1/4 not to qualify) have bagged six in their last five, while Mexico have scored just once in their last three fixtures.

The battle for second could even go down to goal difference – South Korea are 11/1 to be the lowest scoring team at the tournament.
