One of the surprise packages of the World Cup meet one of the favourites in Porto Alegre, with our tipster Hugh Wilson backing both sides to find the net at a fantastic priceAlgeria and Germany face off in the second round of the World Cup, with Joachim Low's side being tipped as massive favourites to progress into the quarter-finals. Die Mannschaft were hugely impressive in the group stages, but will not underestimate an Algerian side who have certainly won a number of fans throughout this tournament.
The underdogs progressed through the group stages after a dramatic match against Russia, where they came from a goal down to draw 1-1 and take the second spot in Group H. Algeria started off the World Cup with a defeat against Belgium, despite leading for over 45 minutes.
Two goals from Belgium in the last 20 minutes put them to the sword and gave them a mountain to climb to take the second spot.
Vahid Halilhodzic's men reacted in a positive manner, thrashing Korea Republic 4-2, before their draw against Russia. William Hill see this match as a step too far for the Foxes', pricing them at 10/1 (11.00).
Germany kicked off their World Cup in style, dispatching Portugal 4-0 with Thomas Muller scoring a hat-trick. The Bayern Munich star has led the German line well, netting four goals so far in Brazil. Despite Germany having a slight hiccup against Ghana, drawing 2-2, they secured top spot by beating USA 1-0 in a tight match. William Hill price them at 2/7 (1.29) to win, with the same firm pricing the draw at 4/1 (5.00).
It would take a mammoth effort from Algeria to even trouble Germany according to the bookmakers, hence why they are so short to win the match. It's tough to touch the outright market, with Die Mannschaft too short to back for most punters, despite the strength in their side. Even if you backed Germany -1 on the handicap, the price of 8/11 (1.73) is a tad skinny for this market.
Looking away from Germany, the both teams to score bet stands out at 21/20 (2.05) with William Hill. Algeria aren't to be underestimated in this tie, and with goals in their side, you can expect them to net in this match.
The Foxes' have scored in their last 16 matches, including six goals in the World Cup so far. With Germany looking suspect at the back against Ghana and Cameroon in a preparation friendly, conceding twice on both occasions, expect both sides to find the net. It's not worth reading too much into the clean sheet against USA, who sat back playing for the draw in the final group match.
