Denmark vs Germany
International Friendly Match
Date: Tuesday, 6th June 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Brondby Stadion.

Joachim Low and company travel to Denmark as part of the preparations for their upcoming World Cup qualifying match and FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia.

The Germans made a 100% winning start to their World Cup qualification campaign with 5 wins from 5 and scoring a massive 20 goals conceding just 1. Their next qualifying match is against the weakest team in the group San Marino on 10th June. Thereafter, the Mannschaft will fly to Russia to take part in the Confederations Cup. They are grouped together with Australia, Chile and Cameroon.

The Danish football team made a moderate start to their qualification campaign and are third in the group with 7 points. The good news for them is that they are level on points with second placed Montenegro. While there is bad news as Armenia and Romania below them are at a 1 point gap. Technically speaking, Denmark must do better if they have to finish in the second spot and earn the ticket to the final play-offs.

The current form of the Danes is slightly better. They are on a three match unbeaten run starting off with a 4-1 win over Kazakhstan and back-to-back draws against Denmark and Czech Republic.

Denmark vs Germany: Head-to-head

Surprisingly, Denmark have a better h2h record against the Germans, 4 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses.

Germany won the last meeting between the two by a 2-1 margin, which was in the Euro 2012 in Ukraine.

Denmark vs Germany: Prediction

Joachim Low is very likely to tinker with the formation and tactics with an eye on the Confederations Cup. Meanwhile, Denmark could also rest their key players as they must win in the away trip to Kazakhstan three days later. So we are expected to see a weakened Germany versus weakened Denmark. And everyone knows what happens next

This is a tricky one for Joachim Low as he is already without his team captain Manuel Neuer. The Bayern Munich goal keeper will also miss the Confederations Cup in Russia later this month. Besides, Toni Kroos, Thomas Muller, Mesut Ozil and Mat Hummels are rested for this particularly friendly. In short, Low is without his experienced players in each department of the field.

This is an opportunity for Denmark and they should not lose this one, especially while playing at their home turf.
