Having proved impressive in the absence of their more established international team-mates, Germany's attacking players will be looking to enhance their first-team credentials even further in Thursday's Confederations Cup semi-final versus Mexico.

Boasting just one competitive appearance for their country apiece prior to the tournament, Lars Stindl and Timo Werner are joint top scorers in Russia with two goals from three matches.

After scoring both of those goals in the 3-1 victory over Cameroon last time out, Werner is the joint 9/2 (5.50) favourite with Betfair Sportsbook to break the deadlock in Sochi, and 13/8 (2.63) anytime.

However, Stindl had found the net in each of the previous two group games before being dropped to the bench, and is also on offer at 13/8 (2.63) to stake his claim for a starting spot by getting on the scoresheet once again.

Restricted to just one start so far despite his hat-trick against San Marino prior to the tournament, Sandro Wagner can be backed at 13/8 (2.63) to offer a reminder of his qualities at the Fisht Olympic Stadium.

Meanwhile, attacking midfielders Julian Draxler 21/10 (3.10) and Leon Goretzka 11/4 (3.75) are also bound to pose a threat in behind whichever frontline gets the nod.

At the other end of the pitch, El Tricolor's record goalscorer Javier Hernandez is the man most likely to open the scoring against the country where he plays his club football with Bayer Leverkusen, at odds of 11/2 (6.50).

With 48 goals to his name in 94 internationals, the 29-year-old could prove a sound investment at 19/10 (2.90) against an opposition defence that has failed to keep a clean sheet so far in Russia.

Having each hit the back of net once so far, Raul Jimenez 13/5 (3.60) and Oribe Peralta 12/5 (3.40) are also more than capable of punishing any weakness in Die Mannschaft's backline.

Finally, rising talent Hirving Lozano is priced at 3/1 (4.00) to add to his growing reputation with a goal, while Giovani Dos Santos is available at 14/5 (3.80) to underline why he was once regarded as a potential star superstar himself by striking against the world champions.
