Group G

After an effortless 4-0 rout against Portugal on Monday that included the dual delights of a Thomas Müller hat trick and some vintage Pepe aggression, Germany sit atop Group G having already faced their strongest competitor in the group. But this World Cup seems a different beast than previous editions, the potential for giant killing is Very Real™, and several other groups in the tournament have already been turned upside down one way or another. Germany will want to head into their last match of the group stage with six points, and nothing less than a win will be acceptable. Some continued fitness issues linger for several players, but manager Jogi Löw confirmed that Philipp Lahm will find himself in midfield again regardless of Mats Hummels' status.

By virtue of Portugal's own implosion, Ghana sit third in the group on goal differential despite their own loss to the USA. While a win against Germany would be the best result for their hopes of advancing, Ghana might be content to nick a point against the group leaders and then hope for a combination of results in the remaining three group matches, including beating Portugal on the last day, that might result in 4 points being enough to get to the knockout rounds.
