England v Germany betting tips: Old rivals clash again
England and Germany renew their rivalry in a Euro 2020 last-16 tie at Wembley on Tuesday as we analyse the England v Germany betting tips.
The Germans have got the better of the Three Lions at major tournaments in recent years, knocking them out of Euro 96 and the 2010 World Cup.
But Gareth Southgate’s side eased into the knockout phase while Die Mannschaft only just squeezed through the ‘group of death’, so let’s take a look at the England v Germany odds.
England will have home advantage again after playing all three of their Group D matches at Wembley, beating Croatia and Czech Republic 1-0 either side of a goalless draw with Scotland.
Southgate had to wait for Group F to finish on Wednesday night before he could start planning for the last-16 game after all four nations occupied second spot at some point over the 90 minutes.
Portugal hit back to draw with France while Germany did the same against Hungary on a thrilling night of action, with Leon Goretzka’s 84th-minute goal sparing their blushes and ensuring they stayed in the tournament.
Germany may have bragging rights from 1996 and 2010 but England forward Marcus Rashford said: “Our main focus is to win the game but if we do, it gets put in history.
“That’s how great teams are remembered for many, many years. There is no point fearing the past. You can’t go back and change it.”
Germany have gone 1-0 behind in the first half of their last four European Championship matches and England to be leading at half-time and full-time is 16/5.
Germany will have to improve defensively if they are to reach the last eight, having conceded five goals in their three group games, with England having some impressive attacking options.
Southgate has some big decisions to make after Mason Mount and Phil Foden sat out the win over Czech Republic and completed their self-isolation on the eve of the Germany game having trained alone for 10 days.
Bukayo Saka and Jack Grealish came in and impressed while there are still questions marks over the form of striker Harry Kane, who has yet to fire at this tournament.
Low could be without Ilkay Gundogan, Antonio Rudiger and Robin Gosens for the match, with the former suffering from a cranial bruise, while the other two have colds.
Raheem Sterling has justified his selection at the Euros after his dip in form for Manchester City at the end of last season.
The forward is the only England player to score so far, netting the winners against Croatia and Czech Republic, and is 6/1 to break the deadlock again.
Kane netted in his last appearances against Germany, a 3-2 comeback win in 2016, and is 7/4 to end his mini drought.
