One of the favourites for the World Cup are Germany, and they take on Algeria on June 30th, 2014 in the knockout stages of the World Cup. The winners of this match will face the winners of France vs Nigeria, which takes place earlier in the day.
Germany have had quite the journey to get here. They looked absolutely incredible against Portugal, and played fantastic both in defense and on attack. However they could only mustle a 2-2 draw against Ghana, where they dominated possession yet couldn’t quite get the shots away. They defeated USA in a rather dull affair to wrap up the group.
Algeria meanwhile, finished 2nd in their group after coming up big against Russia in the final game. A goal by Slimani in the 60th minute was what did it. They had defeated Korea Republic 4-2 in a lively matchup, and succumbed to the mighty Belgians.
What We’ve Learned:
Algeria: As expected, Algeria have a good offense that can score goals. They’ve scored in all 3 of their matches, and we saw the ability of them especially against Korea. We didn’t see the counter attacking prowess of them in any of the matches though really – they’re much better when they can control a game like against Korea, or Russia. Going to be tough against the Germans.
Germany: It’s been tough to really learn much about Germany. They looked brilliant against Portugal, exposed a lot against Ghana, and they dominated the USA and probably should have beaten them by more. Their hearts weren’t really in that one though.

Germany vs Algeria Betting Tips:
If Algeria want to win this one, they need to study Ghana vs Germany over and over and over again. Germany like to play a patient game and Ghana wouldn’t let them – they pressed, and pressed and pressed and that upset the Germans.
Germany will most likely win this one, and that’s who I’d tip – but at 10/1 you do have to consider the Algerians.
When Germany played Portugal, the Portugese just self-destructed in that game. On top of that, they just didn’t play good throughout the World Cup. I mean they let the Americans score twice against them and USA were very poor on attack. Ghana did the business against them and were unlucky, then they beat a USA team 1-0 who had no fighting spirit in them for whatever reason.
It’s a bet we’re going to lose probably 6-7 times, but it’s worth a small bet on Algeria to score.
Over/Under market is probably not worth betting. Over 2.5 goals isn’t a bad price, but if Algeria fail to break down the Germans it will probably be 1-0 or 2-0 Germany with the Germans playing that patient, probing game.
Take a long shot. Bet Algeria to win
Algeria vs Germany Betting Props:
Probably Both Teams to Score. 1/1 odds, which is fair. Germany will score and Algeria have scored in every game so far. Their attack looks great, and I think the odds are probably better at 8/11 for Both Teams to Score, so 1/1 is a decent prifce.
