Germany vs Morocco odds and betting statistics



Germany vs Morocco match preview

Will this be the start of another victorious World Cup campaign for Germany?

DFB-Frauenteam are one of just four nations to have won the World Cup, capturing back-to-back titles in 2003 and 2007.

They’re also the record European Championships winners, victorious at eight of the nine editions between 1989 and 2013, including six successive triumphs.

Last summer, Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s team reached yet another Euros Final, but this time they were beaten, going down 2-1 to hosts England.

Nevertheless, their performance at that tournament, and subsequent friendly victories over USA, France and Netherlands, mean that many are tipping Germany for glory.

In their last warm-up game, they did suffer a shock 3-2 defeat to Zambia in Fürth, but that’ll quickly be forgotten if the two-times world champions pick up three points in Melbourne.

The Atlas Lionesses hadn’t even featured at an Africa Cup of Nations since 2000, only qualifying for last summer’s edition as hosts.

Reynald Pedros’ team certainly grasped this opportunity, knocking out record-winners Nigeria in the semis on penalties, before a narrow 2-1 defeat to South Africa in the WAFCON Final.

This run earned Morocco a spot at this World Cup, achieving this much earlier than expected, making the North African side rank-outsiders in Group H.

Anything other than a comfortable German victory at Melbourne Rectangular Stadium would be a major surprise.

Germany team news

Many would argue that Germany have the strongest midfield trio at this tournament, namely Sara Däbritz, Lena Oberdorf and Lina Magull.

Alexandra Popp sat out last summer’s Euros Final, sustaining an injury in the warm-up, but she’ll lead the line here, seeking to add to her 62 international goals.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Frohms; Huth, Hendrich, Hegering, Rauch; Oberdorf, Däbritz, Magull; Schüller, Bühl, Popp.

Morocco teams news

Ghizlane Chebbak will lead Morocco out at the first-ever World Cup match, winning her 61st cap.

Tottenham striker Rosella Ayane is one of many dual-nationals in this squad, so could she become the first Moroccan women to net at this tournament?

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Er-Rmichi; Redouani, Aït El Haj, Mrabet, Seghir; Nakkach, Chebbak, Amani; Ouzraoui, Tagnaout, Ayane.
