The third group in the Nations League draws interest because of the big-name national teams. Every game day, the titled teams meet here. In the sixth round, England and Germany will meet in this quartet.
The hosts are preparing for the World Cup, and the Nations League is not a priority for them. During the European Championship, the team focused on it. Perhaps that’s why the England team managed to technically reach the final of the World Cup and lost only on penalties in it. The English side treat the Nations League as a friendly. This can be seen even in the final place in the group. The English team could gain only two points in the first four rounds. It is unlikely they will be looking to earn points in this tournament before the Mundial.
The guests after the European Championships are in great shape. They have not lost in 13 consecutive matches. At the same time in recent meetings there is a tendency to draw results. Before beating Italy, Germany had four draws in a row. Such an anomalous result is not often seen. It is unlikely the visitors will continue to share points with their opponents in their Nations League group. In addition, Hans-Dieter Flick should test the team’s efficiency against serious opponents before the World Cup. It is not for nothing that the Germans are considered one of the main contenders for the World Cup.
The visitors in this match have a much better chance to win. They have gained good form and take the Nations League more seriously. For these reasons it is worth betting against England.
