Germany know they can seal progress to the Confederations Cup semi-finals with a win over Cameroon, in the process continuing their progress this tournament ahead of the World Cup.
Joachim Low brought an inexperienced squad to the dry run a year ahead of time to experiment with personnel and introduce potential players to the national set-up, even if it means it has taken Die Mannschaft time to gel.
While Lars Stindl and Leon Goretzka are staking a claim for a spot in the final squad for the world finals in 2018, Germany as a side have yet to fully convince in the Confederations Cup - understandable given the short period of time this group of players have had to get used to each other and Low’s system.
It has left the world champions needing a win in their final Group B outing to be sure of progress to the semi-final stage, following a narrow 3-2 win over Australia and then a 1-1 draw with Chile. Given Germany have not entirely looked their formidable selves of late, Paddy Power are offering new customers the chance to back a win against Cameroon at the huge price of 20/1 (21.0), with £1 max stake.
That comes in handy in the event of an upset, with the stakes and potential loss next to zero, while profits will soar in the much more likely event Germany finish the job and continue their Confederations Cup march.

If they secure victory, then the returns will be topped up to the enhanced value after the final whistle. Winnings paid in free bets. T&C's apply.
Cameroon may sniff their chance exploiting a leaky Germany backline - there have been 33 goals scored in the latter’s last seven Confederations Cup games, with both teams finding the net in all but one of those matches. However, Low’s men have shown they are capable of outscoring their opponents on most recent occasions, particularly in the first half when three of their four goals this tournament have come.
Die Mannschaft have been unbeaten in their last 12 games in all competitions. In fact, it would be against their nature to fold over here when a win is really needed against a side they are unbeaten in their three meetings against, while they have not lost to a team from Africa since 1982.
Therefore, odds of Germany finishing the job with a win against Cameroon at 20/1 (21.0) with £1 max stake seems the surest path to profit at virtually zero risk, as Low looks to lead his men to vital victory in his 150th game in charge of his country.
