Match Summary

1 Look out for:

International friendly predictions can be a minefield, particularly when looking to call high profile encounters such as this one. Both sides are looking to get into shape for the summer, and players will be keen to make an impact.

One of those looking to catch his manager’s eye will be Spain’s Marco Asensio, who is set to receive his ninth cap on Friday. The Real Madrid forward is yet to score for his country, but he is in good form for his club this season and 15/2 to score first in this game.

2 We fancy:

This game looks to have draw written all over it, and that could be the way to go in your football score predictions for this tie. It should be a close one, but definitely one to watch, given the array of superstars on display.

A 1-1 draw would preserve both sides’ long unbeaten records, and the promise of more this summer, and it is priced at 5/1.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Just like his counterpart Lopetegui, Germany manager Joachim Low has also called up plenty of young stars for this glamour friendly.

Among them is Manchester City star Leroy Sane, who just the same as Asensio, has nine caps and no goals for his national side. He has been in brilliant form for City this season, scoring 12 goals in all competitions for Pep Guardiola’s team. He’s 14/1 to score two or more goals against Spain.

Germany vs Spain Football Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Reigning world champions Germany play Spain in what could be a mouthwatering fixture

Both sides have brilliant recent records, with Germany unbeaten in their last 21 games in all competitions, stretching back to the semi-final defeat to France in Euro 2016. Spain are unbeaten in their last 16 games, with a Euro 2016 quarter-final loss to Italy their last defeat.

This heavyweight bout is a difficult one to call as part of this international friendly football preview, with both sides set to showcase the talent they hope will see them challenging for glory in the summer.

International football is so often tentative, and even with the huge amount of talent on display in this game, there is a real sensation that they may cancel each other out, with a draw at 23/10.

One of the more exciting football bet tips and predictions is both teams to score, which is priced at 4/5. It covers the event of a draw, but leaves the option open for a win too.

Both managers will be looking for players to stand out and make a case for a spot in their World Cup squads, and that should make for an intriguing battle.

Predicted Score: Germany 1 - 1 Spain
