One of the biggest talking points of the World Cup 2018 group stage is Germany’s debut – after all, they are the defending champions and certainly will be looking to reclaim the title they won 4 years ago in Brazil. They’ve been drawn in an interesting group, too, alongside Mexico, Sweden and South Korea. The American team is favorite to win second place and come on top in the duel against Sweden, but a lot will depend on their first game against Germany.

Mexico does look good, though. It’s their seventh consecutive participation at the FIFA World Cup, with good results so far.
They seem to have a firm grasp on second place and should be able to beat Sweden in their direct encounter, or at least have better results against Germany and South Korea than the Swedes.
Hirving Lozano will be the player to watch in the Mexican side, their leading goal scorer during qualifiers. But in order to gain a positive result against Germany, a lot of things have to go well – not only your main striker.

On the other side, we have the defending champions of the World Cup – a side who has participated in the last 17 editions of the event back-to-back, and won the last occurrence in Brazil.
They are looking to defend their title and go all the way, and expect little resistance in the Group stage. Timo Werner is one of their most interesting, new players.
The young striker is their new goal scoring machine, although he is nothing like Klose, Gomez or other traditional German strikers. He’s quick, agile and has great finishing, and can also be quite creative. And if he doesn’t perform, Germany can also rely on Ozil, Draxler, or other star attacking players. They do have quite a few.
Germany vs Mexico Betting Tips
From a betting perspective, going for a Germany home win is both obvious, and probably not very profitable in terms of odds. We believe that one of the best ideas in terms of risk/reward is going for a Germany over 1,5 goals or 2,5 goals bet – since we believe that their attacking power will be a little too much for the Mexicans.
We’d also recommend betting on Werner to find the net, since he is the main attacking force of the German team. Overall, any bet that relies on Germany to play well is bound to have good chances of success.
