thumbnail Hello,

In what is a repeat of a group match from the World Cup in South Africa in 2010, Joachim Low's men face the Black Stars, with our tipster backing goals from Die Mannschaft

After thrashing Portugal in their opening group match, Germany have set the bar high for the other sides who wish to challenge them for the World Cup this summer. Ghana are their opponents this evening, with the two sides meeting in South Africa four years ago, where a Mesut Ozil goal good enough to give the Germans three points.

With an opening victory against Portugal already in the bag for Germany, a win tonight would put them on the verge of qualification.

Joachim Low's side looked extremely impressive against Portugal, with Thomas Muller once again rising to the occasion on the World Cup stage. In the end his hat-trick helped them to a 4-0 win. Unsurprisingly bet365 price Germany at 3/10 (1.33) to win again.

Ghana were always on the back-foot against the USA last week after conceding in the first minute. Despite levelling up late on, they couldn't keep the Americans out, who went onto win the match 2-1.

Akwasi Appiah's men are looking to emulate their run from South Africa, which saw them reach the quarter-finals where they one penalty away from making it to the semi-finals. A win is a must for the Black Stars, who will need to put in a performance of a lifetime. bet365 price them at 10/1 (11.00) to win, with the same firm pricing the draw at 5/1 (6.00).

With Germany too short to touch in the outright, half time/full time and handicap market, it's worth looking at goals to find a bet that stands out.

Low's side to net over 2.5 goals at 11/10 (2.10) could be one of the bets of the tournament. The Germans were fantastic against Portugal, creating numerous chances and netting four goals. With six goals scored against Armenia in the friendly before the finals, they come into Brazil in fine touch.

Germany dominated their qualification group, winning nine of their 10 matches, scoring a remarkable 36 goals. When you consider that the over 2.5 Germany goals would have paid out in nine of their 10 qualification matches, including against Sweden and Ireland twice, this price cannot be ignored against a Ghana side that possess plenty of pace going forward, looking defensively suspect in their opening game.

Should the match finish 0-0 bet365 will refund losing bets on first/last and anytime goalscorer markets as well as half time/full time, correct score and scorecast wagers.
