2017 FIFA Confederations Cup Las Vegas Odds & Aengus Moorehead Parlay Picks: Australia vs Germany

Australia vs. Germany

Australia : 0-0-0
Germany: 0-0-0
Date:

Kick-off Time: 11:00 AM ET
Venue: Fisht Stadium Sochi (RUS)

The FIFA Confederations Cup kicked off on Saturday in Saint Petersburg, Russia on Saturday with the host country starting on the right foot with a 2-0 victory over New Zealand in Group A action. Eight countries will vie for attention as a new nation will be crown in the title match set to be staged Sunday July 2 at Saint Petersburg Stadium.

Defending Champions Brazil, who won the last three Cups, failed to qualify for the event for the first time since 1995. That left the door opened to World Cup and Euro Champions Germany and Portugal who are the heavy favorites to claim the Artemio Franchi Trophy in two weeks’ time. Portugal played to a 2-2 draw with Mexico in their first fixture on Sunday.

It will be Germany’s turn to hone their skills in their first match as they get set to meet the 2015 AFC Asian Cup winner Australia in Group B action in a match set to contested Monday morning at 11:00 ET at Fisht Stadium in Sochi. The two nations played to an entertaining 2-2 friendly draw in Germany when they last met back in 2015.

Germany though, has revamped most of their side for the championship with youth and inexperience as Coach Joachim Loew elected to give his senior players some respite while looking to nurture the new faces in some competition mode. Indeed, Die Mannschaft are missing a chunk of their core players that captured the World Cup 3 years ago.

Although criticized for his actions, Loew clearly is focused on next year’s World Cup and it is no secret that the 57-year old considers that three tournaments in successive years is “borderline”. Loew’s men will be the youngest squad competing in this year Confederation Cups and with the added experience most will get, it is logical path which in the end could prove to be a brilliant strategy.

Regardless of the Germany’s youth movement, Australia will have their hands full in their opener. The Socceroos are not particularly firing on all cylinders of late as they barely beat Saudi Arabia 3-2 in their World Cup qualifier 10 days ago and were crushed 4-0 by Brazil in a friendly last Tuesday in Melbourne.

Bovada Sportsbook currently have the Germany listed as -275 Moneyline versus the Australia, at +750 Moneyline while the Draw is at +400 Moneyline.
