      Germany vs Argentina Predictions

      Two giants of international football clash on Wednesday night, with this encounter in Dortmund marking the start of the international break. Both of these sides had a tough time at the 2018 World Cup, while they’ve not had the greatest time since. Argentina remain without Lionel Messi and they are in the middle of a transition period, with some lesser talents being asked to step up.

      Meanwhile, Germany are looking to promote a new batch of players, after relying too much on the side who beat Argentina in the 2014 World Cup final. They are making moves towards a younger side, with almost all of their players called up for this clash having less than 50 caps. That has left 90-cap Manuel Neuer as the most experienced player, but his position remains up in the air. Joachim Low was threatened with losing all of his Bayern Munich talents if he dropped Neuer and replaced him with Marc-Andre ter Stegen, making his goalkeeper choice one to watch this week.

      Argentina’s most experienced player here is Man City’s Nicolas Otamendi, who hasn’t covered himself in glory this season. Up front, Derby d’Italia scorers Paulo Dybala and Lautaro Martinez are both in the side, they are likely to make up a new-look attack for the South American giants this week. Inter Milan’s Martinez is coming off a hat-trick in their 4-0 win over Mexico last time out, so he’ll be chasing more goals here.

      Martinez should find some joy up against this German defence. The hosts have struggled at the back, shipping four goals at home to the Netherlands in their last home clash. They’ve conceded six times across their two meetings with Holland, with all of their major tests since the World Cup showing them up. They conceded seven goals in their Nations League clashes with France and Holland, so Argentina’s fresh forward line should cause problems.

      Argentina are looking to solidify a new-look defence, while Germany have scored 17 times across their last five matches in all competitions. They have in form Timo Werner and Serge Gnabry in their side, so they should trouble the visitors. That has us going for both teams to score in this clash, while we’re backing Germany to win 2-1 after seeing them win four of their last five matches.
