Who is Favorite in Germany vs Spain Semifinal Match of World Cup Football 2010?
Germany vs Spain match will be the second semifinal of this World Cup Football and it will be played on 7 July 2010 at Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban. The winner will go to the final and play against either Uruguay or Netherlands.
It is perhaps clear that Netherlands is the hot favorite in the first semifinal and would go to the final by defeating Uruguay. However, it is very difficult to pick a winner between Germany and Spain as both the teams look very strong in this tournament so far. Both of them have lost one match in the group stage but then looked very solid and strong after that.
Germany has been very impressive in the tournament so far. In the round of 16, they defeated England by 4-2 and then in the quarterfinal, Germany indeed humiliated Argentina with a score line of 4-0. Their good advantage is that they are getting goals regularly. They are the team with highest number of goals in the tournament so far it is highly unlikely that any other team can surpass them in this matter.
Spain disappointed everyone when they lost in the first match against Switzerland in the group stage. However, after that they just won everything and have emerged as one of the favorites to lift the trophy. The main problem for Spain is their bad history in World Cup Football. They have never played in a final. Even it is 60 years (1950) that they last played in a semifinal of World Cup.
When it comes to history, Germany has it all. They were runners up 1982, 86 and champion in 1990. Then they were runners up in 2002 and secured third place in 2006.
Both the teams have good defense and midfield but German strikers are getting regular goals. This single factor can perhaps decide the fate of the semifinal match between Germany and Spain. Thus, Germany looks to be the favorite judging their current form and previous history....being a human...
