The reigning world champions, Germany, start their quest for a presence in the final 32 of the 2018 World Cup away from home against Norway.
After a rather disappointing semi-final exit at Euro 2016, the Germans are eager to be the first team to defend their World Cup title – although they are more than aware they have to change a thing or two in order for this dream to become reality.
World Cup 2018 Qualifying: Betting Prediction, Odds & Tips
Norway vs Germany – 4th September
Betting Odds: Norway 7.00 or 6/1 Draw 4.33 or 10/3 Germany 1.45 or 9/20 with Bet365
But let’s speak about their adversaries first. Norway are one of the candidates for 2nd place in group C, in direct competition with Northern Ireland and the Czech Republic.
They haven’t been exactly impressive in recent times, lacking individual quality as well as club results and even failing to qualify for Euro 2016.
Their current generation doesn’t seem provide many signs that their fate will change in the near future and fans are a bit pessimistic regarding their qualification chances – especially from a group with Germany.
On the other hand, Joachim Low remained to coach Germany for 2 more years and is bound to make some changes to their squad, leaving out players who are clearly unable to perform at top-tier level and making room for new talent.
The under-23 squad won a silver medal in Brazil, only losing on penalties against the home side, so the coach has plenty of new talent to mix with his experienced players. Germany will surely be a force in the final tournament and is expected to qualify with ease from this group.
Norway vs Germany Betting Prediction & Tips
Of course, considering the things highlighted above, we back Germany to do well in this game. We at least expect them to not lose, but we think an over 1,5 goals scored by the Germans or a solo away win are bets with goods odds and good returns. They will do a professional job in their first game of the new qualifiers – the scoreline is the only doubt.

Bayern Munich have appointed their former treble-winning head coach, Jupp Heynckes, to take charge of the side until the end of the current season. The move comes after the departure of Carlo Ancelotti, who was dismissed following a stunning 3-0 defeat by Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League, and a stuttering start to their Bundesliga campaign that sees them five points adrift of leaders Borussia Dortmund. The 72-year-old Heynckes is coming out of retirement to lead the Bavarian giants for the fourth time in a storied managerial career that has spanned nearly four decades. He first led Bayern from 1987 to 1991, during which time he won two Bundesliga titles and the DFB-Supercup. He then took over briefly in…
