The Line: Spain 23/20 Draw 23/10 Germany 12/5 See the Latest Odds
One of the glamour ties in World football will take place in Spain on Tuesday as the World Champions Germany travel to take on the 2010 World Champs in what should be a terrific game of football. Spain have responded well to their 2-1 defeat against Slovakia and have won their last two. This game against the world champs will be the first real test for the Spainish who will be led by Chelsea duo Fabregas and Diego Costa. Del Bosque has started to build his team around the brilliant Fabregas a couple of months late but better late than never. Manchester United shot stopper David De Gea should get a game in goal and should be the regular number one for the Spanish however Del Bosque is loyal to Casillas, loyal to a fault it is pretty obvious at this stage that De Gea is the best keeper in the squad.
The german squad seems a little lacklustre at present. The Germans have had four less than brilliant performances in Euro qualifying an unconvincing win over Scotland was followed by a loss to Poland and a draw with the Republic of Ireland. Thomas Muller has continued his excellent form though since the World Cup scoring four in four. Tony Kroos is the key figure for the Germans the Real Madrid midfielder pulls the strings and delivers most of the through balls and set pieces. Germany have a terriic squad and obviously being World Champions there is an abundance of talent there. The only thing though is that Germany have struggles since the World Cup.

Both teams have a huge array of talent but the Germans are struggling since the World Cup. Spain had a horrific world cup and have lost a game in qualifying for the Euro's already but the Spanish are on a redemption tour right now and I expect them to put in a big performance against the World champs on Tuesday. Expect both managers to make plenty of changes throughout but with Spain's extra desire to impress the home crowd I think the Spanish can get the win.
