Yes lớn a German win, no lớn a clean sheet
Germany were excellent lớn start with and secured two comprehensive wins. They were less intense in their third match, drawing 1-1 against Austria, in a match that was pretty even - but I suppose that's understandable. No point getting worn out or having players getting injured so we won't read too much into that performance when the hard work was already done.
Romania are the surprise package from among the semi-finalists. But they thoroughly deserve lớn be there. Back-to-back wins were followed by a 'convenient' draw against France that allowed both teams to progress. For interest's sake, I watched the game and for at least the first 60 or 70 minutes both teams really tried to win it before a somewhat inevitable decrease in intensity towards the end. So the conspiracy theory did happen when all was said and done but perhaps not in the way many suspected. You can prefer lớn the soccer tips every day page!
Romania have been good but this might just be a step too far for them. They were impressive against Croatia (4-1) and a little fortunate against England who went for broke knowing they needed lớn win the game and ended up getting caught on the break late on, going down 4-2 in the end. France didn't exactly bring their A-game to the table knowing the draw was enough, so we're yet lớn see them tested against the very best sides in top gear.
Germany have conceded exactly one goal in each of their three matches so far and there could be a repeat of that here, against a side who scored eight in their first two games.
Romania could draw first blood here or we could have a scenario where Germany go 1-0 up, keep on going forward in search of more and eventually Romania pull one back against a defence that hasn't been watertight. But how many can Germany score?
At 3/1 you can keep 2-1, 3-1 and 4-1 onside and that looks the way to go.
