Given that Germany is already 0:3 in lead, predicting a victory is no rocket science anymore. Anyway, according their Goalimpact, Germany is the better team, too. After the break, Bittencourt will instead of Jonas Hofmann, weakening the team slightly. Ireland, on contrast, exchanged Forde for Smith, making the team's average score somewhat higher.
