thumbnail Hello,

Five markets worthy of a bet for tonight's second semi-final clash...

Tonight's second World Cup semi-final is proving popular with punters who are placing a bet on the game. Some betting firms have in excess of 200 markets for the match!'s official betting partner Titan Bet have created some new markets for the game. We pick out five of the more enticing ones below.

* Germany to score first - 2.10

Average Time of first goal scored
Germany - 22.75, Spain - 46.75

Jogi Low's side have started fast waiting just eight minutes to open their World Cup goalscoring account against Australia. It took 20 minutes against England and just three to penetrate Argentina's defence.

* Over 9.5 corners - 1.89

Spain have racked up the corners forcing 24 alone against Switzerland and Honduras. For all their goalscoring exploits Germany lost the corner count against England and Argentina averaging 5.2 per game. Spain's average is 8.2. Little sense in Spain winning more corners at 1.55 so back over 9.5 in total for some better value.

* Germany to win on penalties - 10.0

Boasting a 100% record with just one spot-kick missed (back in 1982) makes the Nationalmannschaft firm favourites if tonight's contest goes to penalties. Spain have won just one of their three penalty shoot outs in World Cup history and they missed two en route to beating the Republic of Ireland in 2002.

* David Villa to score two or more goals - 7.50

Villa has been Spain's saviour bagging five goals and creating the other for Andres Iniesta. He will be their source of inspiration again tonight as the Barcelona striker looks to make up for missing out on the final of Euro 2008 against Germany.

* Penalty Awarded - Yes - 3.25

Between them both teams have been awarded three penalties and missed the lot. Referee Viktor Kassai has awarded one penalty so far in the competition in the USA Ghana game. If you fancy a penalty to be awarded and scored you'll get odds of 4.0, for it to be missed there is superb value at 12.0.

* World Cup Bet of the Day: Germany - Spain
