Germany - Ghana Betting Preview: Expect a one-sided affair in Fortaleza with plenty of goals

In a repeat of the two sides' group match from the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, 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 having also met in South Africa four years ago, where a Mesut Ozil goal was 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 late on, they ultimately couldn't keep the Americans out, who went on to win the match 2-1.

Akwasi Appiah's men are looking to emulate their run in South Africa, which saw them reach the quarter-finals - where they were one penalty away from making it to the semis. 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 a friendly before the finals, they came 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 bet 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, but looked 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.
