Having seen an inexperienced team underwhelm in front of goal against Poland last time out, Al Hain-Cole expects Joachim Low to unleash his full-strength attack to great effect
The hosts were held to a 0-0 draw against Poland in their last exhibition game but are 2/7 (1.29) favourites with bet365 to get back to winning ways here.
Despite leading the African nation to the World Cup, Volker Finke is under slight pressure after overseeing just four wins in 11 since taking over last May, but is available at 17/2 (9.50) to boost his popularity with a surprise victory against his homeland.
Die Mannschaft have drawn three of their last five friendlies and are on offer at 5/2 (3.50) to play out another stalemate on Sunday.
Having handed international debuts to 10 players in the drab 0-0 draw against Poland, Joachim Low is expected to revert to a more familiar line-up for this clash as the deadline to name his final squad draws closer.
While this is good news for home fans turning up at Borussia-Park hoping to see their favourite stars, it looks ominous for a visiting team that lost 5-1 in March’s friendly against Portugal - one of Germany’s Group G opponents in Brazil.
With the likes of Mesut Ozil, Marco Reus and Thomas Muller back in action up front, the hosts should look more like the side that outscored every other European team in World Cup qualification, having struck 36 goals in just 10 games.
Considering Low’s men have scored at least three goals per game in nine of the last 13 matches, odds of 10/11 (1.91) seem very generous on them coming out on top in a match featuring over 2.5 goals on Sunday.
That bet looks particularly attractive as 19 of Germany’s previous 24 games have featured three goals or more, while they have beaten the Indomitable Lions in both of the last two meetings.
