France vs Germany Betting Tips
France vs Germany
is just a quarter-finals match but is worthy enough to be a finals matchup of probably 2 of the strongest teams in the tournament and unfortunately only one of these teams will come away as the winner. France finally punched through Nigeria to make it through and Germany had a tough match against Algeria to make it through as well.
This is the quarter-finals elimination game at the 2014 World Cup
. The match happens on July 4th, 2014 at 13:00 local time at Estadio Maracana in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

A trend we have seen in the elimination games is that they have been very close even with underdog teams. These close games have been low scoring and enough going into extra time. The France-Nigeria game took some time for the game to get going and was close while the same for Germany as it had to go into extra time to settle the score. Germany is the slight favourite going into this match and France is probably the toughest team that Germany will have faced in the tournament. If anything, France looked more composed against Nigeria compared to Germany's game against Algeria where they seemed to have exposed their defence quite a few times. This game probably has a slight edge for France to win but at only 6/5 odds to win, this isn't good enough to pull the trigger on unless as the game time approaches, if the odds change and give a bigger payout for France, then above 3/2 odds are worth considering. Knowing that most games in the knockout stages have been tight, a 23/10 odds for a draw is also a decent pick.
Players to look out for in this match include Karim Benzema, Paul Pogba, Thomas Muller and Mesut Ozil. Germany has a wealth of players to put on the match so we don't know who they'll include in their lineup but usually they try to match their team with a strategy against the team they want to beat. For France they seem to like Olivier Giroud up front although one player who is making a name for himself is Mathieu Valbuena.
We like the draw odds on this game and under 2.5 goals.
Prop Bets France vs Germany
Prop bets are certainly more interesting to bet on than just who will win or if there will be a draw. If you think you can pick the exact score then you got some interesting odds to choose from:
- 1-1 draw 5/1 odds
- 1-0 France win 8/1 odds
- 1-0 Germany win 6/1 odds
For goal scorer odds, wait until the starting lineups are announced. So far these odds are:
- Karime Benzema goal TBD
- Thomas Muller goal TBD
We don't know who France is going to play upfront along with Benzema if it includes Olivier Giroud or not but you can count on Benzema starting the game so perhaps first half goal is better to pick than second half.
