With a strong Three Lions line-up expected to take on Joachim Low's experimental side, Al Hain-Cole predicts an entertaining game to feature plenty of goalsAfter slipping to their first defeat in 11 matches against Chile, England will be looking to bounce back in style when they take on Germany at Wembley on Tuesday.
The Three Lions memorably lost 4-1 in their last match against their old rivals at the 2010 World Cup and are outsiders at 19/10 (2.90) with Betway to gain some revenge with victory this evening.
The visitors have come out on top in each of their last five visits to Wembley and are 5/4 (2.25) favourites to make it six in a row on Tuesday.
Joachim Low's men shared a 1-1 draw with Italy on Friday, and you can get odds of 12/5 (3.40) on them securing a stalemate this time out.
While Roy Hodgson decided to use the Chile game as an opportunity to offer a number of fresh faces to impress, his counterpart fielded more or less the strongest side available for Friday's clash with Italy.
However, the roles are set to be reversed this evening, with Low intent on trying out an "experimental" line-up against a home team featuring the returning Daniel Sturridge and captain Steven Gerrard, meaning no Manuel Neuer, Mesut Ozil or Philip Lahm, not to mention the injured Sami Khedira.
Although Die Mannschaft’s impressive talent pool means there are plenty of strong players ready to step into the side, all those changes cannot help but destabilise the visitors, meaning another high-scoring friendly encounter could be on the cards.
Considering 24 goals have been scored in Germany's last five exhibition games, odds of 3/4 (1.75) look too good to turn down on over 2.5 goals going in this evening, in a bet that would have paid out in each of the last four meetings between these sides.
In fact, the coach’s chopping and changing has led to some particularly dramatic games for the visitors over the past few months, with leads often changing hands several times in one match.
A bet on either side to lead at half-time and fail to win would have paid out in three of the Germans' last five friendly matches, so odds of 11/4 (3.75) are well worth a smaller investment on that eventuality against England.
