Germany Favourite To Win at Home on Friday

Published on September 3rd, 2015 8:33 pm EST
Germany will be playing host to Poland in one of the marquee match-ups of Euro 2016 qualifying on Thursday evening.

Poland has done surprisingly well so well in the qualifying round, as they currently sit at the top of Group D with a record of 4-2-0 (14 points). Germany is currently sitting at #2 with 13 points, while Scotland is in third place with a total of 11 points.

Poland has been thoroughly dominant so far, as they have scored 20 goals while allowing just three. This gives the Polish side one of the best goal differentials of any team so far.

Germany, however, will be looking to reclaim their position at the top of the Group on Thursday. While Poland has certainly done well for themselves so far, Germany is still the defending World Cup champions and one of the best sides in the world. For that reason, Germany is still the clear favourite to win on Friday.


Here are the current betting odds for Germany/Poland as of this moment:

Germany, 1.30
Draw, 5.00
Poland, 11.00

These odds mean that a successful $100 wager on Germany would yield a total profit of $30, while a successful $100 wager on Poland would return a total profit of $1,000.

According to the bookmakers, the three likeliest outcomes of Thursday's match look like this:

Germany Wins 2-0, 7.00
Germany Wins 1-0, 8.00
Germany Wins 3-0, 8.00

The likeliest outcome that would see Poland scoring the upset win? That would be a 1-0 result for the Polish side, which is currently going for 23.00 on William Hill.


Germany has a multitude of different weapons that are all capable of rippling the net on Friday. As a matter of fact, Germany has a total of 12 players who have odds of around even money to score on Friday. These players include Thomas Muller, Marco Reus, Lukas Podolski and Max Kruse.

Poland, on the other hand, will be relying heavily on the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Arkadiusz Milik to score on Friday.
