Iceland v Germany Preview, Women’s 2013 European Championship, Sunday 14th July 2013

Germany will be out to prove a point after the last games disappointing result against the Netherlands who managed to frustrate them in a 0 – 0 draw.  With Germany dominating Iceland in 12 previous meetings with winning all 12 matches that have been played. This record is Germany’s best against any nation with 5 of them being competitive fixtures where the Germans have scored an impressive 19 goals. The total goals being 48 with only conceding an incredible 3 goals. With Germany not losing a UEFA Women’s Championship fixture since 1996 against Norway in an opening qualifying match for which Norway won 3 – 1.

Even with Germany’s team full of injuries for this tournament I still can’t see them losing this match.

Iceland can take positives from their last match against Norway with scoring a late equalizer from the penalty spot in the 87th minute, and although they may of given the Icelanders some confidence I don’t feel this team have what it takes to progress past Germany with any result but a loss. Siggi Eyjolfsson the Iceland coach may argue that fact as he has faith in his side who treated the draw against Norway with celebrations and see it as a step forward for Iceland in Women’s football.

Iceland v Germany Team News

Iceland Team News:

Iceland aim for 13th time lucky against the Germans and although they have no injuries I still can’t see this team experiencing that win against this currently injured German side. Iceland have currently got 1 point in their first game, which is more than what they got 4 years ago in the competition. With smiling assassin Margret Lara Vidarsdottir on the team sheet she will be aiming to build on her tally after calmly slotting home her penalty against Norway.

Germany Team News:

Coach Silvia Neid is facing a selection nightmare with injuries as Babett Peter, Verena Faisst, Viola Odebrecht, Alexandra Popp, Linda Bresonik and Kim Kulig who are all major key players in the side have all been ruled out of any involvement from this competition due to respective injury problems and although the squad still has a few experienced players involved, things are obviously going to be a lot more difficult for this German side to secure their 8th European Championship Title. But with what should be an easy game for the Germans winning here should put them a step closer to progressing into the knockout stages.

Who Has The Advantage?

The two nations have played 12 previous meetings before this game taking place in Vaxjo, but due to Women’s football only becoming a recognised sport in recent years we unfortunately don’t have all the data to show you in our head to head statistic table above so have included the information we have managed to obtain which shows their last 2 meetings.

However, in the 12 previous encounters Germany have won all games with scoring an impressive 48 times and only conceding 3 goals themselves.

Average Goals Per Game?

The 12 previous meetings have seen a total of 51 goals scored which provides us with an average goals per game statistic of 4.25 which promises that this game on Sunday night should see a few goals scored in the Vaxjo Arena.

With Germany missing a huge important part of their squad to injury they are still in relatively good form, with their last result seen as a disappointment against the Netherlands.

Iceland v Germany Match Betting Odds Market.

Germany have been installed as the clear odds on favorites to win this game by the online bookmakers with a best price available of just 1/5 with Bet365 – £200 Free Bets For New Customers Registering an Account. which for me looks extremely short considering half the regular team will be unavailable.

The Draw has never been seen between these two sides and it shows with good odds with the current best price of 6/1 with Skybet – £10 Free Bets No Deposit For New Customers Registering an Account.

Iceland are not given much chance at all in winning this game with the online bookmakers having them priced up at a best price of 18/1 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) but with Germany missing a large number of key players, Finland will certainly fancy their chances of causing a huge upset.

Iceland v Germany Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Easy prediction here with a Germany win all the way, even with a large important part of the side out injured I still can’t see Finland getting anything from this match.

Although I always like having a cheeky bet on the underdog I feel only a small bet will do as not to lose all of my hard earn wages!
