Germany is making their ninth straight appearance in the round of 16.

The Algeria defense gave up five goals in their three group matches and they have to deal with a German attack led by Thomas Muller, who is tied with two other players for the tournament lead in goals.  

Algeria is overmatched by the great German midfield led by Bastian Schweinsteiger and the African squad must play good defense and pounce on counter-attack chances.

Look for Algeria to play a defensive match like they did against Belgium where they narrowly lost 2-1.

Islam Slimani and winger Sofiane Feghouli are the two main weapons up front for Algeria and they have to take advantage of scoring chances, as they may not get many.

Germany’s defense shut out the Americans in their last group match, but in the previous one gave up two goals to Ghana,

The Germans simply have too much talent on the pitch and they will dominate the time of possession the entire game. Germany will win this match by a confortable margin and advance to the quarterfinals.
