The Australia vs. Germany match will be played on Monday, June 19, at the Olympic Stadium, Sochi. This is the first round match of Confederations Cup group B, which consists of Australia, Germany, Cameroon, and Chile.
These teams met five times so far. Germany won three games, Australia won one match, while one game ended in a draw. It is interesting that in all games they played we saw over 2.5 goals and the most exciting game was played in Confederations Cup in 2005 when Germany celebrated a 4:3 victory.
Australia is currently 3rd in their qualifying group, with two games to go. The first two positions lead to World Cup in Russia directly, while if they stay third, they will have to play a two-legs playoff most likely against Uzbekistan. Either way, Australia is very near securing the place on World Cup. They still didn't lose a match in a qualifying cycle, but a terrible 4:0 defeat against Brazil showed all their weaknesses.

Germany has practically secured the place on the World Cup in Russia, and they might even be the biggest favorite to win the title in this tournament. They see Portugal and maybe Chile as their biggest rivals, but they won't underestimate Australia either.

When these two national teams play head to head matches, we are always witnessing interesting encounters, with lots of goals scored. We hope that will be the case in the upcoming game.
