Germany: They’ve been quite inconsistent ever since the debacle at the 2018 World Cup, but since then they have gotten a couple good results like beating the Netherlands 3-2 on the road in March on Matchday 2 in Euro qualifiers. This squad features a really inexperienced defense on the club level with five of the team’s seven defenders having between zero and eight caps. Timo Werner leads the front line and has 10 goals in 25 caps and will be the focal point in the final third.
Netherlands: The Dutch are in a great moment after making the Nations League final this summer. Starting goalkeeper Jasper Cillesseen is now a No. 1 goalkeeper at his club after leaving Barcelona for Valencia, and centerback pairing of Virgil van Dijk and Matthijs de Ligt is almost unfair to have. The concern is where the goals are going to come from at the No. 9 position. Memphis Depay is a fine winger, but striker Luuk de Jong has failed to be a consistent goal scorer.
Germany have a 100% record in the UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifiers so far, with three wins in three matches. On the other hand, Netherlands’ form has been a bit dodgy of late, having lost two of their last three matches including one against their Friday’s opponents.
Germany have the quality in their attack to pierce through the defensive duo of Matthijs de Ligt and Virgil van Dijk. But, given the lack of experience in their backline, Netherlands are likely to be in with a chance especially with Memphis Depay in red-hot form.
Recent fixtures between the two teams have been high-scoring affairs and Friday’s encounter in Hamburg is likely to follow a similar pattern. We at The Hard Tackle are predicting this one to end in a keenly contested 2-2 draw, meaning the Germans’ perfect start to the qualifying campaign is likely to come to an end.
