France - Germany Betting Preview: Back both teams to score at the Maracana

Les Bleus will be hoping to secure a place in the semi final when they face Die Mannschaft in the first quarter-final at the 2014 Fifa World Cup
Germany face France in the first quarter final game of the ongoing 2014 Fifa World Cup at the Maracana on Friday. Both countries struggled in their second round matches, with Didier Deschamps' side scoring two goals in the last 10 minutes to beat Nigeria while Joachim Low's breezed past a spirited Algeria team after extra time.

France come into this match with a great scoring record in the competition having netted 10 goals in their four matches so far, with five coming against Switzerland in the group stages.

With only one defeat in their last 15 matches, Les Bleus will fancy their chances against a German side who haven't been firing on all cylinders. Bet9ja price them at (2.85) to win and progress to the semi-finals.

Germany on their own part can be priced at a chunky (2.40) to zoom to the last four of the competition which will put them in firm position to challenge for the ultimate prize.

The draw is available at odd of (3.15) according to the same firm.

Low’s side have been far from impressive since their 4-0 spanking of Portugal in their first game of the competition and must fasten up their sit belt should they dream of getting past a more resolute French. One good thing is that both teams are not goal shy as they have score in all their games (except their last group matches). Baring this in mind, Bet9ja offer both teams to score at a chunky odd of (1.94).

With a tight match in-store, expect few goals in this quarter-final with so much at stake for both sides. The over 2.5 goals bet at (2.17) looks tempting and worth investing in. In the knockout matches so far in the competition, we have seen few goals, with all teams aware eager to remain in the World Cup. 

In the opening halves of both sides last two matches, we have yet to see a goal. The half time scoreline to be 0-0 at (2.27) with Bet9ja is the play, with another tight opening in the pipe-line. Both sides will be fully aware of all the threats either team has to offer, so expect the sides to take 45 minutes to settle in the match and wait until the second half to come out of their shells.
