Germany vs Brazil Match Preview
When the last time Germany played against Brazil, it was the 2014 World Cup and the Germans humbled Brazil 7-1 in front of their passionate fans. That’s a result, they would want to forget soon, but getting one over the European giants wouldn’t be bad for revenge! This Germany vs Brazil friendly will be played at the Olympiastadion in Berlin on Tuesday, so check out our Germany vs Brazil prediction and betting tips.
Germany are one of the hot favourites for the World Cup and considering their form, it is no surprise. They qualified for Russia winning all ten of their group matches and scoring 43 goals in the process (avg. of 4.3 goals per game). The 1-1 draw on Friday with Spain marked an unbeaten streak of 22 matches for the Germans ahead of this Germany vs Brazil match. That draw, however, marked its three draws in consecutive friendlies for the Joachim Low’s side. Interestingly enough, these draws came against top sides – England, France, and Spain – which mean they have shown a tendency to flop against top sides. Will that continue against Brazil? In fact, Germany have drawn five of their last eight games against sides ranked in the top 16 of the world. However, their last win against Brazil from the 2014 World Cup gives hope for the German fans.
Brazil aren’t the same side that lost to Germany four years ago at home, considering the defensive steel that the Selecao have been showing under the tutelage of Tite. They have dominated their World Cup qualifying campaign as well, and after the 18 matches they won 12 and lost only once. They finished ten points clear of the second-placed Uruguay. They come into this Germany vs Brazil fixture hammering Russia 3-0 away from home, a result that made it eight games unbeaten for the visitors. Even their form away from home is top-class with Brazil remaining unbeaten in 13 matches on the road (W8, D5). Can they continue their brilliant away record?

More so because of Germany’s poor form against top sides in the last couple of years. The hosts may not find it easy like in their last encounter against Brazil.
