Germany to overcome Chile in 90 minutes
Joachim Low’s world champions have been in fine form throughout their campaign in Russia.
They are unbeaten so far and have dispatched an impressive 11 goals in four matches.
With such a rampant run of form ongoing, Germany will be confident of ousting Chile here.
They also have the added boost of having had an extra day off, while Chile had to endure extra-time and penalties against Portugal.
Timo Werner to get on the scoresheet anytime
Heading into the final it is Germany duo Timo Werner and Leon Goretzka that sit top of the scoring charts.
They both have struck on three occasions, but it’s frontman Werner that looks most likely to finish with the Golden Boot.
The 21-year-old RB Leipzig forward has been clinical and has the momentum going into the final in Russia.
He was on target against Cameroon twice in the group campaign and added another over Mexico last time out.
Draw at half-time, Germany win at full-time
Chile have showed that they can withstand attacking onslaughts so far on Russian soil.
They managed to keep Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal’s strong strikeforce out across 90 minutes in the semis.
Although, Germany have the attacking prowess capable of eventually breaking them down.
