World Cup 2010 Semifinals:Germany vs. SpainJuly 06, 2010 by Marc Jerbs

On Wednesday, the 2nd semifinals match of the 2010 World Cup between Germany and Spain will be held at the Durban Stadium in South Africa.

The German team is fresh from a 4-0 annihilation of powerhouse Argentina in their quarterfinals match. This is the third time in five games that Germany scored four goals in a match. Their other victims were Australia and England.

A key player to watch in this semifinal match is Germany's midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger. He set the tone in their offense against Argentina by providing crucial assists in Germany's first and third goals of the game. He needs to sum up again his top notch performance to help Germany advanced in the 2010 World Cup finals.

Spain has a tough task ahead when they meet the talented and dangerous German team. If their performances in their 1-0 win against Paraguay in their quarterfinal match, they must improve in all corners to have a chance to beat Germany. The Spanish team has yet to hit their stride and it's a good thing that striker David Villa has raised his game a notch by providing clutch goals in their recent match ups.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the unpredictable Spain team as the slight favorite to beat Germany. Is this a prelude to a foreseen upset? We'll know on Wednesday as both teams face each other for a spot in the 2010 World Cup finals.
