Germany got their World Cup off to a dream start as they smashed Portugal 4-0 in Salvador on Monday. Ghana, meanwhile, could effectively have had their own World Cup dreams shattered by the 2-1 defeat to the USA they suffered in their opening match. But can the West Africans bounce back to pull off a big shock against the Germans? Read on for the latest betting tips, odds comparison and analysis as we assess this intriguing encounter.

Germany are the odds-on favourites to win this one, with Ladbrokes and others pricing them at betting odds of just 2/7 to claim their second victory of the tournament. Ghana, who looked good in patches against the USA, are way out at odds of 11/1 for the win, with the draw at 5/1 with Bet365.

Realistically we can’t see past a win for Joachim Low’s men, but our betting tips will seek value away from the match winner market. For instance we like the look of Germany winning by a margin of three or more goals at 15/8 with Sky Bet. While we also like the betting odds of 2/1 with Coral for the Germans to win and both teams to score in a match we could see being something of a goalfest. Overall though a comfortable win for the Europeans looks very much on the cards.
