Netherlands vs Germany
UEFA Nations League
Date: Saturday, 13th October 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena (Amsterdam).
After a disappointing outing at Russia in the FIFA World Cup, powerhouse Germany is trying to build up its lost pride. They travel to wonder city Amsterdam for a match-up with eternal rivals Netherlands.
Not qualifying for the world cup has surely hit them where it hurts the most and the once feared Orange Squad is desperate for a revamp. Under the new coach, Ronald Koeman, the icons of Total Football, with titans like Virgil Van Dijk, Memphis Depay etc tie their boots to capture their lost crown in international football.
The loss of Marco Reus is sure a worry for Joachim Leow and his men. But as ever the case of Germany is, they have enough firepower in their squad to replace an unavailable player. Die Mannschaft will be determined to make amends for their debacle at the World Cup.
Netherlands will have the crowd behind them. A loss in this game would practically send them to League B. A team trying to claw back into the top tier of international football will be keen to avoid that.
Netherlands vs Germany Head-to-head
- Germany are unbeaten in the last six meetings with Netherlands, however 4 of them are stalemates.
- In their last four games at Netherlands’s home, Germany has won once, and the remaining matches were draws.
- Nine of their last 11 meetings across all venues recorded both teams scoring.
- Over 2.5 goals were found in 8 of the last 10 h2h meetings.
Netherlands vs Germany Prediction
Germany will avoid a loss at all costs in this match. Winning the UEFA Nations League, or at least progressing to the knockout stage from a group including France would restore their sense of worth a little bit.
The Mannschaft will be careful not to concede goals. With their possession-based playing style and passing game, the former world champions will try to break down the Orange defence.
Not many goals will be scored in this match. Manuel Neuer under the sticks for Germany, along with Hummels and Van Dijk, de Ligt on the other side should be watchful of the goals scored.
