Matildas vs Germany friendly prediction
It's hard to go past two-time world champions Germany at home. The Germans have played a couple of friendlies this year, beating Belgium 2-0 on 21 February and a loss to the Netherlands 2-1, just 3 days later. In contrast the Matildas haven't played since March 2020 when they beat minnows Vietnam 2-1 in an Olympic qualifier.
Australia stand a chance if star striker Kerr continues her stellar form. She scored a hat-trick in her last FA Super League match for Chelsea and has scored 10 goals from her past 6 games in all competitions. Kerr also got the better of Germany star Alexandra Popp late last month when Chelsea eliminated Popp's team Wolfsburg from the women's Champions League.
