Judging by the form and previous experience, Germany should be considered as the hot favorite to win this match. In the last one month, German national football team played 3 matches and won all of them comfortably. They defeated Malta 3-0, Hungary 3-0 and Bosnia-Herzegovina 3-1 in the warm up matches prior to the world cup.
On the other hand, Australia did not have such good time in the warm up matches. They just edged pass New Zealand 2-1, caused a massive upset by defeating Denmark 1-0 but lost to USA 1-3 just a week ago. Thus, Australia is not perhaps the favorite to win the match.
Speaking of hot favorites, there have been some upsets already. In the opening match, South Africa held on to Mexico. Uruguay caused even bigger upset by producing a 0-0 draw with mighty France. Just last night, USA could contain England with a 1-1 draw. So, it is very difficult to say whether Germany would win the match easily or there would be another upset.
The good thing for Germany is that they do not have any major injury worry. Of course, they would miss their former captain Michael Ballack and now, Philipp Lahm will have to guide the team. Almost all the players of German team are based in different clubs of Germany. So, they know each other very well and this should help them to make a good combination in the field.
There is no big injury worry for Australia either. The players are spread in different countries. Some of the players play in English Premier League and the fans are looking something especial from them. In fact, all their 3 goalkeepers play in EPL and Mark Schwarzer (Fulham) is still in superb form even at the age of 37.
What is our prediction? Most probably 1-1 draw or a win of 1-0 for Germany
