Despite not boasting a full-strength squad going into the Confederations Cup, Germany are once again in another final and will look to prepare for next year’s World Cup by lifting the trophy against Chile on Sunday.
Die Mannschaft have surged into the final in impressive fashion despite Joachim Low leaving his stars at home and naming a young and experimental squad. After a couple of scares early in the group stages, the world champions have breezed through the latter parts of the dress rehearsal ahead of next year’s tournament.
Signs have been encouraging for Low, who has the luxury of putting together a squad for next summer, but the Confederations Cup final could prove useful in distinguishing who can deliver victory on the stages that matter.
La Roja are not to be underestimated, as Argentina and Portugal discovered over recent years, and their seasoned international veterans could provide a stern test for Germany’s young guns.
Low’s troops have been installed as slight favourites to edge the tie with Paddy Power but they are also offering new customers the chance to make a serious profit by backing them to win within 90 minutes, offering the huge enhanced price of 30/1 (31.0) with £1 max stake.

If they win, then the returns will be topped up to the enhanced value after the final whistle. £1 max stake. Winnings paid in free bets. T&C's apply.
Despite the magnitude of their task, there has been enough on display for this second-string Germany squad to deliver when it counts. Gelling quickly, they are top scorers this Confederations Cup with 11 goals.
Timo Werner has had a hand in more goals than any other player in this year’s tournament - with three goals and one assist - while team-mate Leon Goretzka is the joint top scorer with three goals.
Die Mannschaft are also unbeaten in their last four games versus Chile, with three wins followed by a draw in the group stages of the tournament. Indeed, La Roja’s last win against Germany came in a friendly in 1968 – they’ve never beaten them in a competitive tournament fixture.
It will undoubtedly take Germany more than Werner and Goretzka to keep up this positive streak with a win that will see them seal Confederations Cup glory in the process, but Low’s men will not be short of motivation given it could help members of the squad seal their tickets to the World Cup. Paddy Power’s price of 30/1 (31.0) with £1 max stake on Germany to win is an opportunity not to be missed for new customers.
