Spain vs Germany Bet Builder Tips
#PickYourPunt @ 11/1
Spain to win
Yes, it was only Costa Rica but Spain looked terrific against the central Americans. Time and time again they cut Los Ticos open and six different players found themselves on the score sheet.
Luis Enrique was questioned pre game about his lack of a proper striker but it didn’t matter, as Ferran Torres (more on him shortly), Marco Asensio, Gavi and Dani Almo tore the Costa Ricans to shreds.
Germany started ok against Japan but looked devoid of goal scorers themselves and I think the Spaniards win this one fairly comfortable and send Germany out at the group stage once again.
Ferran Torres to score
Man City fans were gutted when Ferran Torres upped and left for Barcelona, after just 28 games for the Citizens and you can see why.
The 22-year-old plays way more advanced for Spain than Barca and that is reflected in his goal record. Torres has 15 goals for La Roja in just 32 games and netted twice against Costa Rica
Antonio Rüdiger to be carded
Real Madrid defender Rüdiger looked all at sea at times against Japan and will be right up against it here against the pacy Spaniard forward line.
The ex-Chelsea man is a superb defender but is fond of a yellow card. He pickled up nine for Chelsea in the Premier League last year and has 11 in total for the national team.
The three picks pay 11/1 using Betfred’s #PickYourPunt builder feature.
