As the tournament reaches the final four the pick of the semi-finals is definitely the passionate hosts against the ruthless Germans and we have a free match preview and free World Cup 2014 betting tips.
With poster-boy Neymar looking set to miss this crucial game & captain Thiago Silva suspended, Germany are favoured slightly in the bookmakers’ eyes; they’re 7/4 to win the game with Brazil just shorter at 9/5 with Bet365.
Germany came through their quarter-final game with France with consummate ease, a glaring contrast to Brazil’s fiercely contested clash with Columbia later that night. The ill-tempered affair amazingly only ended with 4 yellow cards and I could see there being a few more than that in this game as most players who are yet to be carded wouldn’t miss the final should their team make it. I’m not going to tip cards as it not something I generally bet on but I can imagine there being 5 or 6 cards in this game if the odds are good for that.
There’s been a lot of joy betting on under 1.5 in the late stages of this competition, a lot of teams looking to out-defend opposition as opposed to out-score them. With Neymar missing the game Brazil don’t seem to have the same spark about them that they used to, Fred particularly a large disappointment so far this tournament. I fancy Germany to win the game in a tight affair, so I can see Brazil pushing everyone forward for a late corner and being caught out by a late sub, most likely to be Andre Schurrle on the counter. For this reason Bet365 offer a great evens bet for there to be 2 or 3 goals in the game which is my first betting tip of this semi-final. For this exact reason there’s great odds for Germany to win and Schurrle to score last, he’s 14/1 with William Hill and that’s my second betting tip.
Brazil’s main threat has been from their set pieces, with 3 goals coming from the two central defenders. The Germans are looking strong at the back, particularly from corners when they play four centre backs in the defence when Lahm is preferred in midfield. With this in mind I can see Germany winning the game to nil and that is great value at 3/1 with Bet365.
