Utah People’s Post brings you a guide to the World Cup 2014 Semi-Finals.
Does Brazil Have a Change Against Germany?
If you’re looking for the too long, didn’t read answer to that question, our answer is that probably no, Brazil won’t win against Germany. So, if you’re going to place a bet with your friends and family, our money is on Germany. Brazil struggled to qualify and you can actually feel the pressure of the nation when it is playing out on the field. Germany was slightly better than Brazil, but not great, as it appear to be amazing only in short spells.
Even though Brazil won the World Cup seven times and Germany only three times, Brazil didn’t impress this year on the field. Besides, in the world ranking Germany ranks number two and Brazil, three. The odds seem pretty similar if you look at just these facts, but considering that Neymar isn’t playing anymore and that Thiago Silva is currently suspended, Germany will most likely be the victorious team this time.
Our prediction: Germany 2 – 1 Brazil.
Argentina or the Netherlands?
Our would normally be on Argentina because of Lionel Messi and Angel di Maria. Since Angel di Maria is out of the game for now, the odds are more debatable. The Netherlands are good, but Argentina is a bit better in our opinion, although things can be a bit tight. The Netherlands have Van Gaal, who can undoubtedly contribute to his team’s victory, if he sets his mind to it. He’ll probably do just that, but there are other factors to consider, obviously. Out of the two semi-final matches, this one between Argentina and the Netherlands is going to be the most interesting to watch since it’s so tight.
Our prediction: Argentina 1 – 0 the Netherlands.
