Germany vs Japan Preview
World Cup Group E, Wednesday, November 23rd, 13:00 (UK)
Four-time World Champions Germany are the sixth favourites to win the trophy this time out, best priced at 13.0 but a figure highly respected in the sport believes they won’t be competing for a fifth title in Qatar.
But not many expect them to get it. Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was asked whether the German national team are amongst the favourites – “Not this time,” he told Wettbasis. “I see the Germans as outsiders along with the Netherlands, Belgium and Denmark. The DFB team disappointed at the last two tournaments.
“They (Germany) still need a bit of time to play at the top again, but with the European Championship 2024 at home, they will definitely be among the biggest favourites again.”
Die Mannschaft haven’t performed well in recent months with just a single victory in six Nations League outings. They failed to keep a clean sheet in any of them. They have a talented squad, there is no doubting that, with a mix of youth and experience amongst the 26 players. Few expect them to go all the way in Qatar but this match may change that.
This is now Japan’s seventh successive World Cup appearance but they have plenty of work on their hands. World Cup groups rarely get tougher with Spain and Costa Rica to compete with alongside Germany. A surprise may be on the cards in this group given that both Spain and Germany can be beaten.
Japan’s squad is filled with recognisable talent who play in Europe’s top five leagues. Takehiro Tomiyasu, Takumi Minamino, Daichi Kamada and Brighton’s Kaoru Mitoma are all be expected to play a key part during the tournament. Kamada has been the man in form this season, the Eintracht Frankfurt attacker has already bagged 12 times this campaign.

Germany vs Japan Bet Builder
Germany are best priced at 1.45 to claim an opening game victory whilst Japan are a hefty 7.50, the draw comes in at 4.80. Goals are expected here, over 2.50 is just 1.67 which looks a little short for an opener. BTTS is a nice 1.86.
The European side will be expected to have a large chunk of possession just as they did in all six of their previous competitive matches between June and September. Japan won’t mind that whatsoever and will fancy themselves to cause problems on the counter.
Backing BTTS will be the first part of the bet builder, the attacking talent will likely be too strong at both ends, leading to what should be an exciting match. Germany failed to keep a clean sheet at the Euros as well as in all three games at Russia 2018.
I do expect Japan to have plenty of enjoyment in front of the German goal. There is one player in particular who I’ll be adding to this bet builder due to his immense form across the current season in both the Bundesliga and the Champions League group stage.
Daichi Kamada has been consistently having a pop at goal. The 26-year-old had at least one attempt in all six matches in the Champions League and 11 in 13 separate games in the German top flight. He’ll be right amongst the attack for the Japan side and will be one of the players his nation look for in terms of getting on the scoresheet.
This will be Daichi’s first World Cup so he’ll be keen to impress on the biggest stage of them all, Japan will need a good result here if they were to make it out of the group, Germany are certainly beatable but backing goals looks the best bet in Doha on Wednesday afternoon.
- Both Teams To Score
- Daichi Kamada Over 0.5 Shots
