Germany v Estonia Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
June 10, 2019
Coface Arena - UEFA European Championships Qualifier
Joachim Low's Germany host Estonia in UEFA European Championships Qualification, as they look to make it three wins from three so far.
Germany and Estonia have never faced each other before in competitive action.
Low has no injury issues ahead of the visit of Martin Reim's side to Mainz, but he may opt to rotate his attacking options, with Julian Draxler and Julian Brandt both potential coming into the starting XI, with Ilkay Gundogan and Serge Gnabry dropping out.
Reim also has a full squad to pick from, but the Estonians are inexperienced, with just five players with over 40 international caps, and striker Henri Anier not picked for these games.
Germany v Estonia Predictions and Preview
Germany easily strolled past Belarus a few days ago, with goals from Leroy Sane and Marco Reus sealing a straightforward 2-0 win in Borisov for Low's side as they look to stretch their legs in qualification for next summer's tournament. A win for Low's side could see them top of Group C, with three games played, if Northern Ireland lose away from home in Belarus - a result which would put real pressure on Michael O'Neill's side ahead of the Germans visit to Belfast in September.
Estonia have faced O'Neill's side in their opening two games of qualification, losing home and away against them in a poor start to making a push for an appearance at their first ever major international competition, and they have mountain to climb here.
Germany should make light work of this tie, as they look to prepare for that big game at Windsor Park at the start of the 2019-20 campaign, and a home win with over 2.5 total goals scored does not seem an over-stretch, priced at 1/5.
Low will want a statemented performance to sign off the campaign, and his young side have plenty of goal threat within them, with an impressive six goals in their last three home games and five in their last two away from Germany - and a Germany to score in both halves bet is at 7/20.
Germany to win 3-0 at 9/2
Anything other than a dominant performance and win from Germany would be something of a disaster for Low, even at this early stage of qualification, as they will want to come into Euro 2020 with the momentum of a strong run in qualifying. As for Estonia, anything other than a mauling, is a plus for them.
Leroy Sane to score anytime at 8/13
The Manchester City winger is back in favour with Low, after being controversially omitted from the 2018 World Cup squad despite winning the Premier League title weeks before. However he is back with a bang for the Germans, and his goal against Estonia was his third in his last four games for the national team.
