germany v uruguay 3rd place play off

The third place play-off takes place at 7.30pm UK time today between Germany and Uruguay. There is no doubt that Germany are the better side and should clinch third position. They simply need to put the disappointment of losing to Spain in the semi final behind them which I’m sure they will do.

Full Germany v Uruguay Odds

To win the match Germany are odds on at 7/10 (1.70). On its own this bet offers little value to us, so let’s seek out another bet. If we look at the results of the last 8 third place play-off World Cup games we will see that all eight games generated over 2.5 goals.

2006: Germany 3-1 Portugal

2002: Turkey 3-2 Korea Republic

1998: Croatia 2-1 Netherlands

1994 Sweden 4-0 Bulgaria

1990 Italy 2-1 England

1986 France 4-2 Belgium (extra time)

1982 Poland 3-2 France

1978 Brazil 2-1 Italy

Unlike World Cup finals the play-off games tend to flow with little tension as the players are simply playing for pride without pressure.

Uruguay have scored 9 goals and conceded 5 in their 6 matches. Germany have scored 13 and conceded just 3 with Klose and Mueller bagging 4 goals each. This game seems to be an over 2.5 goals banker! Let’s back over 2.5 goals at 8/13 (1.61)
