Germany odds: To win 2022 World Cup, how far will they go, top scorer and more

Germany will be looking to bounce back from two poor showings at major tournaments when they travel to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar this winter.

Die Mannschaft won the World Cup in 2014 and many expected that to be the start of a Spain-like domination from Joachim Low’s side. Instead they faltered, failing to get out of the groups at the 2018 World Cup and bowing out of Euro 2020 in the last-16.

Germany have had to start a rebuild under Hansi Flick, but things are going well and they have won their eight games since the former Bayern Munich boss took charge, scoring 33 goals and conceding just two.

Some will look at their fixtures during that run and see the likes of Armenia, Lichtenstein and Iceland listed among the the victories but Germany have been impressively ruthless and will take the momentum into the year.

Germany to win 2022 World Cup odds

Germany are currently priced at 9/1 to win the 2022 World Cup.

As one of the bigger European names, Germany are usually among the favourites to win major tournaments, but they are never clearly backed. For the World Cup this winter there are five teams with better odds than Flick’s side, but they won’t mind being the slight outsiders as long as they go all the way to win in Qatar.

England 6/1 6/1 7/1
Spain 8/1 8/1 8/1
Argentina 9/1 9/1 9/1

Joachim Low had already got Germany off to a good start in qualifying for the World Cup, winning two of their opening three games – beating Iceland and Romania – though there was a speed bump as they fell to a 2-1 home defeat to North Macedonia. However, Flick was perfect in World Cup qualifying since taking over and after getting revenge on North Macedonia, Germany became the first team to qualify for the 2022 World Cup outside of hosts Qatar.

Germany’s potential path to 2022 World Cup final

As a result of their slump towards the end of Joachim Low’s tenure, Germany have dropped to 12th in the FIFA world rankings and were placed in Pot 2 for the World Cup draw – opening up some pretty tough scenarios.

And Germany are in possibly the toughest group at the 2022 World Cup, drawn alongside Spain, Japan and the winner of the CONCACAF-OFC play-offs which will be either Costa Rica or New Zealand.

Germany will take on Japan in their first game, at the Khalifa International Stadium in Al Rayyan on 23 November, before facing Spain and then Costa Rica or New Zealand in their group close. As well as their game in Al Rayyan, Germany will also play two matches in Al Khor.

Germany have been absent at just two World Cups since the inaugural tournament, missing 1930 as they did not enter and 1950 after being banned following the Second World War. But they have never failed to qualify with only Brazil (21) appearing in more World Cups than Germany’s 19.

From their 17 World Cup appearances, Germany have collected the trophy on four occasions, again with only Brazil (five) winning more. Their first victory came after their return to the World Cup in 1954, as West Germany, beating Hungary 3-2 in the final. Twenty years later, there was another West Germany victory this time against Netherlands at Munich’s Olympiastadion.

In 1990, West Germany won again, their final World Cup before the reunification, beating Argentina 1-0 – a scoreline they repeated in winning the 2014 World Cup.

Germany Golden Boot odds

Germany don’t really have a recognised goalscorer in their squad, and Serge Gnabry is their highest-ranked player on the Golden Boots odds at a massive 25/1 with Paddy Power.

2022 World Cup Golden Boot favourites

Player Paddy Power Betfair
Harry Kane 6/1 6/1
Romelu Lukaku 13/2 13/2
Kylian Mbappe 8/1 8/1
Neymar 17/2 17/2
Cristiano Ronaldo 10/1 10/1

The Bayern Munich winger has a pretty decent record for Germany and could lead the line for Flick’s side ahead of the likes of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz – or join one of the Chelsea players in the attack.

More recently Gnabry has played on the right wing for Germany, scoring four goals in his past four matches to help Die Mannschaft qualify for the World Cup – taking his tally to 20 goals in 31 matches.
