The top two teams of the “Group of Death" face off in the second match of the Group Stage as Spain and Germany go head-to-head. This Group E matchup takes place on Nov. 27 at Al Bayt Stadium, with kickoff set at 2 p.m. ET.
Spain had no trouble qualifying for the World Cup, going 6-1-1 en route to winning UEFA Group B. Similarly, Germany had an easy time qualifying, winning UEFA Group J, and becoming the first country to earn their bid.
Both sides have a realistic shot of winning the World Cup this year. So whoever comes out on top in this match will most likely secure the Group Stage victory.

Spain vs Germany Prediction
Spain 1-2 Germany
The last time Spain and Germany played against one another, it was a dominating victory for La Roja, as they beat Nationalelf 6-0 in UEFA Nations League play in 2020. However, that seems like forever ago, and these are two different squads.
Though they’ve seen their fair share of struggles, Germany has been the most improved team since Hansi Flick took over as manager. Flick went 13 straight matches without a loss to start his managerial tenure with Germany but has a 2-5-1 record in 2022.
Germany has an incredible roster up front, with stars that include Thomas Müller, Timo Werner, Leroy Sané, Serge Gnarbry, İlkay Gündoğan, Jonas Hofmann, Jamal Musiala, Joshua Kimmich, and Kai Havertz. And the Nationalelf could also include a returning Marco Reus and Florian Wirtz, with the latter being out since Nov. 2021 with an ACL injury.
Like Germany, Spain’s attack can keep up with everyone else in the field. They haven’t lost much under manager Luis Enrique, only dropping three games in a 32-match span and a goal differential of +40.
La Roja’s attack features Álvaro Morata, Pablo Sarabia, Rodri, Ferran Torres, Sergio Busquets, Pedri, Gavi, Carlos Soler, and Koke. Spain does an excellent job of controlling the match’s pace and forcing opponents on the counterattack.
This will be a battle from start to finish and should keep fans on the edge of their seat throughout. With every point vital, especially in the “Group of Death," Germany will squeak out a victory here.
Spain vs Germany Betting Tips
Spain has had a successful 2022, as they sport a 5-2-1 record, have outscored opponents 15-6, and have advanced to the UEFA Nations League Finals.
On the other hand, Germany has not seen similar success in 2022. They have a 2-5-1 record, have outscored opponents 14-10, and failed to make it out of their group in the UEFA Nations League.
Spain vs Germany Best Bets
Over 2.5 Goals (-105) at Caesars Sportsbook
WAGER: 1 Unit
Both sides sport a high-powered attack, so this match should have plenty of scoring opportunities. Group E could very well come down to goal differential, so putting the ball in the back of the net as much as possible is crucial for both sides.
Germany Moneyline (+175) at Caesars Sportsbook
WAGER: 0.5 Units
Even though Spain are the favorite in this match and to win Group E, I have Germany winning both the game and group, and that all comes down to beating La Roja here.
While Germany’s defense isn’t the best, they very well make up for it on the attacking side and should overpower teams on that end of the field.
