High-flying Spain will take on a disorganized Germany team at the Al Bayt Stadium on Sunday.
Only Spain defeated Costa Rica 7:0 in the opening round with such efficient play. Unexpectedly, they were completely successful, leading to a total of 17 shots on goal. Between the two nations, there was a noticeable gap in class, with Spain having the largest proportion of possession (81.9%).
They would probably lose to Spain on Sunday and lose the match after the dramatic 2-1 setback to Japan on Wednesday (if Japan get at least a point in the match against Costa Rica). Germany, currently rated tenth in FIFA, has now won just two of its last nine international games in all competitions.
Spain handily overcame Germany in their previous meeting and dominated in front of goal against Costa Rica, but Sunday's game is likely to be closer as Flick's squad is under pressure to make up for their embarrassing loss to Japan.
Pick: Spain Draw No Bet
