Betting Tip: Germany @ 8/11 with paddypower

England’s Euro 2016 preparations are ratcheted up a notch over the next few days, with the Three Lions facing Germany in Berlin before a date with the Netherlands at Wembley.

The first match looks a far more formidable task and Roy Hodgson will be without several of his first-choice players for the clash at the Olympiastadion, with Wayne Rooney and Jack Wilshere sidelined with injury.

Danny Welbeck is also nursing himself back after a long lay-off and will play a minimal role, while Mauricio Pochettino will be keen that Dele Alli is used sparingly as the midfielder also manages a mild injury.

With Joe Hart also out, then Hodgson can do little else but pitch an experimental side against the world champions. Germany are the toughest possible opponents and Die Mannschaft will want to lay down a marker ahead of this summer’s tournament in France.

The German squad contains several familiar faces and the midfield is particularly blessed with talent. Mesut Ozil will join forces with the likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger, Toni Kroos and Marco Reus, the latter of which could be a star turn at Euro 2016 after cruelly missing out at the 2014 World Cup.

Defensively, the Germans weren’t too clever in qualifying and Mats Hummels is the only defender selected with more than ten caps, although Manuel Neuer remains a formidable stopper and there are exciting youngsters looking to make an impression.

Ultimately, while the result is secondary to getting the players out there and putting together some kind of performance, it would be a surprise if Germany weren’t to win this clash in front of their own supporters.
