Tonight is the biggest match of the World Cup in Brazil so far, as the home team Brazil takes on Germany in a game that could show who is going to win the World Cup. Germany has a strong team, but Brazil had the sort of edge you never know how will be, even without their star player Neymar.
No European team has won a World Cup in South America and based on the odds on the game, it doesn't seem like we are going to see one do it this time. Brazil Victory gives odds 2.75 at Ladbrokes, while Germany pays odds 2.90 and a draw 3.1.
While the odds are pretty even, there is no doubt that the Brazilian crowd can put some pressure on the German team and also lift their own Brazilian team forwards, making it difficult for Germany to play the best they can. However as things have looked so far in the World Cup, none of the teams have really performed at a steady high level, so everything can happen in this game.
With Argentina playing Holland tomorrow, we might end up having a South American final or a European final, depending on the results. It will be interesting to see if the South American teams gains an edge having a much larger crowd than the European teams or if Germany and Holland can stand the pressure.
