wales slovakia preview The home of France’s Disney World will serve as a venue for what will likely be a very exciting opening fixture in Group C play. The defending World Champions Germany will take on the red-hot Ukraine in what may serve to be a stage of one of the tournament’s biggest upset bids. Germany has not looked immortal when comparing this football machine to the likes of their 2014 World Cup Champion squad. Yet personnel groupings haven’t changed very much and the Germans remain under the administration of Joachim Low who has implemented a brand of football that fuses efficiency and possession. Nevertheless, as of late in many international friendlies many teams have deciphered the German blueprint and unveiled counters to achieve measurable results against the champs. Notable assailants, include the United States of America, France, England and most recently Slovakia. The Slovaks managed to put the woodwork to Germany, defeating the Germans by a score of 3-1. Queue Ukraine, a team that has gone 5-0-1 in their last six and sports an impressive 4-3 barnburner victory over a searing Romania. For the Ukrainians it doesn’t just stop there, this squad has also taken down Wales in recent exploits after the side qualified via an aggregate play-in to earn qualification in to the tournament. This achievement has served to be a catalyst that sparked an eruption in the Ukraine attack. Ukraine has all the components to be a viable giant killer in this tournament, they can score fast and mark frequently. Furthermore, the Ukrainians show no apprehension in going toe-to-toe with some of the game’s biggest giants. From a betting angle, Germany seems to be a blue-chip stock and a team that is almost guaranteed to produce some dividends for any takers willing to lay the juice. Such is the premium assessed when you take a defending World Champion but Ukraine in themselves rank within the top-twenty of FIFA’s world rankings, yet we are able to get that same side at 6/1 against a squad that has fallen prey to several middling teams in this tournament in the most innocuous of circumstances. The mindset here is simple, Ukraine knows they can hang tough with good teams and will look to smash Germany’s party and make a splash when no one expects it from them. On a given day, Ukraine has better than a 12% chance of defeating a side like Germany and thus some of the lofty odds we saw them enter with in various friendlies are all the more justified. You know our stance, if we can find value in laying a heavy favorite we will always take that avenue. While Ukraine may have their hands full in what is a very deep Group C, we have seen Germany lay an egg before when they blow the rust off in major tournaments. No prime example illustrates this more than Ghana drawing the Germans in the opening game of the 2014 World Cup. The Germans entered with all the hype and press machine behind them and they were forced to survive the onslaught of the Black Stars. Facing a team of Ukraine’s quality combined with their recent successes, an upset here is more likely than many expect so we will hop aboard and take Ukraine outright.
