International football fixtures 2020, Germany predicted lineup vs Czech Republic, team news, and prediction
Germany welcome Czech Republic in a high-profile international friendly this week. Alley Sport brings you the Germany predicted lineup from one of the biggest International football fixtures this week, as they face Czech Republic.
Germany are on a woeful run of form by their own standards. Joachim Low‘s side are unbeaten in 5, but have won only 1 of those games. The Germans need a good result against upcoming opponent Spain if they are to win Group 4 of the UEFA Nations League. Spain lead Germany by one point and Ukraine are level on points with the Germans. The 4 winners of the 4 UEFA Nations League group face each other in the 2021 UEFA Nations League semi-final.
Before they can start thinking about Spain, Germany would need a good confidence booster against the Czechs. This being a friendly, Low would be enticed to start several uncapped players listed in his quad for the match. Olivier Baumann, Phillip Max and Bote Baku are the 3 players most likely to be handed their first senior cap for the Germans.
The last time these two neighboring countries faced each other, Germany ran out 2-1 winners in a 2017 FIFA World Cup qualifying match.
Germany form in all competitions: W-D-D-D-W-D
Czech Republic form in all competitions: L-W-L-W-W-L
International football fixtures: Germany vs. Czech Republic Team News
Germany have not listed Borussia Dortmund captain Marcus Reus and Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, possibly due to the pair recovering from recent injuries. With an important UEFA Nations League fixture coming up against Group 4 leaders, Low doesn’t want to risk his main players.
Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich is sidelined for 2-3 months after he injured his meniscus in the Der Klassiker vs. Borussia Dortmund. Apart from that, Oliver Baumann is expected to start in goal and get his first cap, while Philipp Max is tipped to start at left-back.
