Spain and Germany face off in a heavyweight clash in World Cup Group E this weekend. It’s a pressure game for the Germans after their shock defeat to Japan and La Roja have the opportunity to potentially knock Hansi Flick’s team out by winning this match.
Spain vs Germany will be the highlight match of Group E and takes place on November 27. The game will start at 7pm GMT, 2am EST in the USA and 11pm for Australian Eastern Time.
Super Turtle supports Spain
The prophetic turtle, which is claimed to have 91 percent accuracy prediction, picked Spain.
In the first matches of Spain and Germany at WC 2022, the turtle predicted victories for these two big teams. But only the prediction for Spain was correct. Germany did not win as he predicted.
Both these teams will be confident of progressing from the group stage but a victory in Al Khor on Sunday would be a major statement to the rest of the tournament. Spain and Germany are both regarded as being in the tier below the World Cup favourites here and will be keen to change some of those perceptions.
Luis Enrique has been proving over the last few years that a system is more effective than individual star players and will be hoping that this World Cup is the perfect time for his plans to come to fruition.
But his side meets a German team that is also under pressure to improve on the disastrous showing in Russia four years ago – and the Nations League campaigns that have followed. Spain have enough talent to trouble their opponents but they need the likes of Pedri and Gavi to really turn it on if they are to come away with three points.
It seems more likely that it will be Germany that stand up to the pressure and gain a crucial victory this weekend. Results have been curiously inconsistent over the last year or so but there are signs that an exciting young forward line is beginning to gel. It just depends on whether Kai Havertz will be able to lead the line to good effect.
The biggest question might be which Germany turns up for this tournament though. We had been used to an all-conquering, confident team that rolled through World Cups and Euros. But recent years have burst that sense of entitlement. A win here would do a lot to bring it back.
Eagle Romeo: Spain 2-1 Germany
It’s not always for Romeo to predict specific results. It’s a difficult game to predict the result but Romeo picked the 2-1 result. A win for Spain.
Germany must beat a scintillating Spain at Al Bayt Stadium to keep knockout stage ambitions alive.
This, astonishingly, will feel familiar to Germany having been dumped out of the group stage in 2018 after a loss to South Korea.
Hansi Flick's side look disjointed despite having dominated a frenetic match for large spells, and ultimately couldn't capitalise.
Spain had no trouble in capitalising against Costa Rica, seven times in fact.
The 2010 World Cup champions were irresistible with the likes of Gavi and Pedri pulling the strings and no recognised striker.
Parrot Ratu: Spain 3-2 Germany
Spain is predicted to win this match by Ratu. He also predicted this match will see lots of goals with three for Spain and two for Germany.
Spain vs Germany: Head-to-head record
There is rich history between these teams and it's quite even across their previous 25 matches with Germany winning nine of them and Spain claiming eight victories.
Arguably the most famous was when Spain defeated Germany to win Euro 2008 after a Fernando Torres goal, but Germany have the edge in World Cups.
As West Germany they defeated Spain at the 1966 World Cup in a group match at Vila Park, and that was followed by another West Germany win that effectively knocked the home nation out at the 1982 World Cup second group stage, while they drew at the 1994 World Cup.
They last met at a major tournament 12 years ago at the South Africa World Cup that Spain won 1-0 - and their last meeting in the Nations League two years ago saw the Spanish side claim an incredible 6-0 win.
|There were contrasting emotions for both of these past World Cup winners in their respective openers, with Germany surrendering a comfortable lead to lose to Japan, while Spain pulled off a confidence-boosting 7-0 win over hapless Costa Rica. As such, there is already serious, serious jeopardy in this mouthwatering clash. |
Hansi Flick would have been happy with his side’s performance in the first half against Japan. They largely controlled the tempo and were seldom troubled at the back, save for a rightly ruled out Daizen Maeda finish. But, after the restart, the Samurai Blue channeled their inner Saudi Arabia to produce a turnaround of epic proportions against a heavyweight nation. The result means Germany need to get a win against Spain, or it could be curtains.
Luis Enrique’s men weren’t in the mood to play victims in the World Cup’s early script-defying drama. Spain were ruthless and cut-throat against Costa Rica, producing a record-breaking 7-0 win to lay down an early marker of their intent. The real acid test is Sunday, though, and Germany will still be licking the wounds from the 6-0 defeat they suffered in the Nations League the last time they met in 2020.
