Recent Form

Before going into this Friday international clash, both teams have been involved in other matches. Let’s check out the latest results that they have been getting to have more information about their current form.

Germany

Recent form in all competition (last five matches):DDWWW

Aftera disappointing Nations League campaign, Joachim Low’s side started their Euro 2020 qualifier in convincing fashion. They won all their previous three matches, including their first meeting against Netherlands 3-2.

That victory away from home gave Die Mannschaft a good confidence heading into this Friday encounter. Low will be hoping for another positive result against their biggest rival in the group.

Ronald Koeman’s team haven’t been getting the best of results in their last few games. The Flying Dutchman lost two out of their recent three matches in all competition, including a defeat against Germany.

Losing 3-2 against the same opponent in their previous meeting can be a good lesson before their second match up this time around. Koeman will be expecting a different result though to making their qualificatioin campaign much comfortable.

Team News

Germany

Nationalelf will be without some important players for this big match encounter on Friday. Low won’t be able to rely on the likes of Leroy Sane, Kehrer and also Rudiger as all are still injured.

Toni Kroos should be back in the starting lineup accompanying Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka in midfield. Up front, Timo Werner most likely will be leading the line with help from Marco Reus and Serge Gnarby.

Germany

The Oranje squad also have some important absentee for this second big match meeting. Koeman is setting up his squad without Bergjwin ang also Donnie Van de Beek as both are yet to recover from their injuries.

Netherlands will be hoping their backline duo of De Ligt and Van Dijk can put on a strong display. Meanwhile, in the attack, Memphis Depay set to collaborate with Quincy Promes and Berghuis.

Head to Head Records:

In their last two previous meetings, Germany have been able to edge their rival with two wins, two draws and just one defeat.

Their most recent battle was also in the Euro 2020 qualifier back on March 25, 2019 which Low’s squad won 3-2.

Match Prediction

Playing at home will give Germany that extra morale boost and pressure at the same time. Die Mannschaft must know how to handle that anticipation from their crowd and use it as an extra energy to beat Netherlands.

Koeman’s  won’t be a slouch though as they are gunning for revenge this Friday. Germany might be slightly favored to take all three points, but the visitor are capable of surprises.

Final Score: 2-1
