Bet on Germany vs Turkey – Goals likely from top two in Group A

| 08.10.2010

Turkey travel to Germany for a game which may see one of the sides relinquish their top spot in Group A.

Both sides currently sit top of Group A on six points and a draw would leave them both top, but the two have only drawn on three occasions in 18 matches between the two.

Match Odds

Mesut Ozil comes up against the country of his family’s blood, but earlier in the week Ozil pledged his allegiance to Germany and and he could be the key to winning against a resurgent Turkish side – Germany are 8/15 to beat Turkey.

Guus Hiddink has already had a huge impact on the Turkish side since his arrival in July, guiding the team to comfortable victories in their opening two European qualifiers.

Turkey are 11/2 to win and Germany will be without Michael Ballack and Bastian Schweinsteiger after the two were ruled out with injury, leaving the spotlight to fall on Ozil to provide a performance.

The two sides have met seven times in Germany but Turkey have just the one win in Berlin which came back in 1951.

Total Goals

Between them, the two teams have scored 13 goals in the European qualifying campaign and with both of their last two meetings finishing with more than 2.5 goals, the 4/6 offered for over 2.5 goals in the match looks good value.

The last contest played in Germany was in 1999 and it ended in a 0-0 draw, and that result is 6/1 to happen again on Friday.

Despite misfiring for Bayern Munich so far this season, Miroslav Klose revels playing in a Germany shirt and he has three goals already in qualifying, making him a decent bet to score any time.

Germany have only conceded one goal in qualifying and they are 6/5 to keep a clean sheet. See the full Germany vs Turkey betting odds market here.
