Betting Tip: Germany @ 10/19 with skybet

Group D has been one of the more competitive Euro 2016 sections, with four teams still “alive” as we approach the final two rounds that take place in the next few days.

Germany are in the box seat thanks to five straight wins which mean they sit top of Group D and a victory in Dublin will book a deserving place in the Euro 2016 finals for a tournament which they are favourites to win.

Sky Bet offer a best price 8/15 that the visitors land victory at the Aviva Stadium, which would have the Republic looking nervously over their shoulder, with Scotland four points behind them but with a banker against Gibraltar in the final match.

The Scots will play Poland at Hampden Park on Thursday night and an away win will see Ireland finish up in the play-offs whatever happens, although Martin O’Neill’s team can’t bank on that outcome considering Germany were made to sweat for their win north of the border.

Nevertheless, the world champions are far superior player-for-player coming into this match, with some of their football against Scotland imperious and they are likely to once more control the game.

The German squad is rich in experience, with the weak area being in defence although Borussia Dortmund’s Ilkay Gundogan appears to have taken well to international football, while Thomas Muller is an accomplished performer at the top level.

Ireland have won four of their eight qualifying matches and they also managed that famous draw in Gelsenkirchen where John O’Shea scored a late equaliser. However, that was followed by a home draw against Poland sandwiched by just a point from games against Scotland.

O’Neill has plenty of quality at his disposal although there is a lack of quality which could see them found out. After all, an open approach will surely result in disaster but how can you play for a point against such a talented team?
