USA vs Germany – Brazil World Cup 2014

USA-vs-GermanyUSA will fight hard to lap up this golden chance of securing a berth in the ‘Group of 16’. This explains the significance this match holds for the USA. Germany, on the other hand, is in a relatively safe position as it would anyway qualify for the next match even if it were to lose this match against USA. So the odds are stacked against USA and it is very important for them to win this match at all costs.

      USA’s chance to the ‘group of 16’ also, to a large extent, depends on the result of the game between game between Ghana and Portugal. If Ghana was to win against the Portugal with a decent margin and the US was to lose against Germany, the Americans will have to give up on their golden dream of finding a place in the ‘group of 16’. If a situation arises wherein the goal difference of both the teams is the same, then the team that scores the higher number of goals will qualify to move to the next round.

       Germany has been on a strong footing all through this series. It has scored close to 60 goals in the past few matches averaging almost 3 goals a match. However, Ghana kind of upset the team and exposed the vulnerabilities of the German team. The 2-2 draw, though did not impact the morale of the team, the game did definitely expose the flaws in the strategy that the Germans had adopted. Though elimination from the groups is highly improbable for Germany it is important for the team to play carefully in order to sustain the momentum that they have been maintaining over the past few games.

      A look at the statistics indicates that these two teams have played nine times against each other on earlier occasions. While Germany has won six games, the U.S.A had won only three games. While there were a total of thirty six goals scored in the nine games, Germany made 21 of them while the USA scored the remaining fifteen goals. So the chances are high for Germany this time around as well given the top form they have been exhibiting all through the World Cup matches. While team USA has pinned high hopes on its players Jermaine Jones and DaMarcus Beasley the Germans are hoping for Thomas Müller and Miroslav Klose to work wonders for them and help them secure a berth in the ‘group of 16’.

World Cup 2014 – Portugal vs Ghana – Today 26 June

tb_0008_Portugal vs Ghana

This contest is anticipated to be one of the most interesting games of the World cup season as both the teams would try hard to utilize their last chance to bag a berth in the ‘group of 16’. Both the teams are strong enough and make for good opponents and this particular reason makes the match all the more compelling to watch and enjoy. Since USA and Germany have four points each, not only do Portugal and Ghana try for maximum points but will also have to deal with goal difference issues which is critical for a berth in the ‘group of 16’.

Portugal, after having finished with a draw against USA, lost badly to Germany in the earlier match. This has crushed their spirits to a large extent. It was a defeat that has put their qualification hopes in jeopardy and their spirits have dipped to an all-time low what with the struggle they have been facing in the goal difference. So if they need an assured berth in the ‘group of 16’ Portugal need to try hard not only to win but also to turn around the goal difference by scoring maximum number of goals. Portugal’s earlier encounters with the African side have been pretty even not giving room for speculation. Earlier Portugal had played 3 matches against African sides of which one was a draw, while Portugal had won one match and lost the other. It would not be an understatement to say that Portugal are in a poor World Cup form what after having lost eight matches in their last nine games in the finals.

Our Tip 12 – Best odds you will get 1 – 2.10 from William Hill and 2- 3.25 from bet365

       Ghana, after a loss with the USA, bucked up their game and gave a strong fight in their match against Germany. Finally, they managed to respond with a 2-2 draw against Germany providing them the much needed oxygen to stay afloat in the World Cup. Asamoah Gyan has become the top scoring African in the history of the World Cup by equaling the goal tally made by Roger Milla. One favorable point for Ghana is that though they have to win to qualify, goal difference is not an issue for this team provided USA loses the match against Germany. This should ease the pressure and help the team put up a decent performance in the upcoming match.

     The odds that Ghana could win over Portugal are Ghana vs Portugal 12. While the troubled Portugal team would move heaven and earth to win this game, Ghana will not give up easily either. While Portugal has a lot of hoped pinned on its star performers Cristiano Ronaldo and Pepe to turn-around the match in their favor, Ghana has pinned its hopes on André Ayew and Asamoah Gyan to create the same magic for them.

      Since Cristiano has not been in the best of form, the predictions across the globe is that Ghana would be better on the field But we will have to wait for a few more hours before we get to know which really turns out to be the dark horse this time around.
