Our prediction for this match:
All eyes will be on RheinEnergieStadion when Germany and Belgium face each other in a friendly. Germany recorded a routine 2-0 win over Peru on Saturday, with Werder Bremen attacker Niclas Fullkrug scoring a brace, and there is every chance the 30-year-old will keep his place in the starting XI. Bayern Munich winger Leroy Sane has been left out of the squad, while his teammates Serge Gnabry and Leon Goretzka are pushing for a start.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, impressed in their EURO 2024 opener, with the team rolling over Sweden 3-0 thanks to Romelu Lukaku’s hat-trick. Given Germany’s attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. There are no fresh injury worries in Domenico Tedesco’s team ahead of the trip to Koln, but Lens forward Lois Openda could sneak into the starting XI.
Highlighted Player (Romelu Lukaku):
Romelu Lukaku Bolingoli, born on 13th of ay 1993 is a Belgian player with roots form Congo. Lukaku played for several youth teams before he got picked up by RSC Anderlecht. After playing for only 2 seasons for Anderlecht Chelsea picked him up for around12 million euro.
Lukaku was never able to get a spot in the starting eleven of Chelsea and after playing for WBA he moved to Everton for approximately 35 million euro.Lukaku made his debut in February 2010 by the age of 16 and is one of the youngest players that player for the highest Belgian national team.
The biggest achievement of Lukakui is winning the Eerste klasse in Belgium and the English FA Cup. With his strength and goal scoring abilities Lukaku can be considered as one of the deadliest strikers of the world. Nicknames for Lukaku are Big Rom and the Tank.
Highlighted Team (Germany):
Competing for major honours since 1900, Germany are now one of the leading national teams in the history of football, boasting no fewer than seven titles in their trophy cabinet. Oddly enough, die Mannschaft have won the four World Cups in regular intervals, having finished as champions in 1954, 1974, 1990 and 2014, while lifting European Championship trophies in 1972, 1980 and 1996.
And having also lost seven major finals, it is fair to say that Germany have challenged for the trophy at almost every single major tournament since 1954. There have been too many world-class players to count that have represented Germany so far, but it is Lothar Matthaus who holds the record for most caps, having featured in 150 matches, whereas Miroslav Klose is the top goalscorer with 71 goals in 137 outings.
Franz Beckenbauer, Gerd Muller, Rudi Voller, Jurgen Klinsmann and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge have all had important roles to play in the past, whereas the new generation has seen Philipp Lahm, Manuel Neuer, Mesut Ozil and Thomas Muller strut their stuff on international stage.
