Germany, the defending champions, is the hot favourite and are all set to defend their 2008 Beijing title. Germany advanced to the finals after beating Australia 4-2.
On the other hand, Netherlands are no less prepared to meet or perhaps beat the defending champions. Team Netherlands humiliated England 9-2 in the semi fianls. Netherlands have not dropped a single point since the group matches and seem determined to clinch the title from the Germans.
It may be added that Netherlands beat Germany 3-1 in the group matches - which is a plus point with them, despite the Germans being the favourites for the gold.
