Low: Brazil Are Favourites

Germany coach Joachim Low revealed that even though his side are one of the favourites going into the World Cup, the hosts will be dangerous in their backyard.

The Germans have reached the semi-finals in the last two tournaments and Low is hoping that they can go one step further this time round while admitting that the Brazilians will be the team to beat.

"Logically, we have a good, competitive team and we'll be one of the favourites in Brazil, It's just the hosts know the conditions, they have home advantage, they won the Confederations Cup have a very settled team," Low said. "Then there are others who have justifiable chances to win, but they, like us, are a bit behind Brazil," Low said.

"The expectation levels change in the space of weeks or months," he said. "If I say something now, it's not to wake people up, it's just the way I see things. That is Brazil are top favourites, then there are others, even the likes of Chile and Colombia as outsiders.

"Lots has to go right to win a tournament like this. Of course we go there with high expectations, but I think we can cope with that."
