Germany Preview – At the fifth time of asking, can Germany finally win their first game in the Nations League?

The inaugural Nations League campaign – held in the Autumn of 2018 – does not hold good memories for Germany or their head coach Joachim Low. Coming off the back of a really disappointing World Cup campaign earlier that year, the Germans failed to win any of their four games against the Netherlands and France, finishing bottom of their section. Low did lead his team to top of their qualifying group for Euro 2020 but they, like everybody else, will have to wait until next summer for those Championships to take place.

It was much more like the thing during qualifying however as the rebuild of the 2014 World Cup winning side looks closer to completion.

Our betting prediction:
Timo Werner to score in 90 minutes

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Wednesday 1 September)
Following the improvement last year and the success of Bayern Munich there is much more anticipation and optimism surrounding Germany than there was two years ago. If anything, the postponement of Euro 2020 may work in their favour as it gives them a number of games together to continue their development.

Low has elected to rest the victorious Bayern players and go with a more inexperienced squad for this set of fixtures, however. Chelsea fans will be particularly interested in seeing new signing Timo Werner with Kai Havertz also likely to follow.

Spain Preview – Will the Spanish gain victory in what will be Luis Enrique’s first game since resuming control?

Having returned to resume his role as head coach in November last year, Luis Enrique would not have expected this to be his first game back in charge. The former Barcelona boss left the job temporarily due to the most sensitive of personal reasons. Spain’s journey has been very much like Germany’s over the last couple of years with more disappointments than successes.

Spain fell short in the last Nations League campaign, finishing second to England. The 2010 World Cup winners proved far too good in their qualifying section, too, going unbeaten in their campaign and winning eight of the 10 games.

These next couple of games will provide Enrique with a better indication of where his squad is at as they face Ukraine at home on Sunday. There are big questions over their two goalkeepers whilst the head coach also attempts to fully integrate some of the younger players into a squad which has failed at the last three major tournaments.

The youngest players in the squad is Barcelona’s Ansu Fati who will likely make his debut over the next few days. One man who won’t be playing is Wolves’ Adama Traore who is ruled out.

Germany vs Spain Betting Advice

Despite some recent troubles these two teams remain at the top of European football and the selection of players both coaches can pick from are of the highest quality. Germany may not have all their stars available but they will still be eager to impress, especially at home.

Low and Luis Enrique know that if there is to be a winner in this game then the victor will be in with a great chance of topping the section.

Key Facts – Germany vs Spain Betting Tip

  • Germany endured a torrid Nations League campaign back in 2018, failing to win any of their four matches
  • Luis Enrique has had to wait for his first game since returning to the national team due to the postponement of Euro 2020,
  • This will be the first time the nations have met since drawing 1-1 in a friendly 18 months ago


Despite sharing so much success in the past decade this will be only the second meeting since 2010, both of which were friendlies.

Six of Germany’s last nine home games have seen both teams scoring whilst seven of Spain’s last eight away games have ended the same way. Both teams to score is the selection tomorrow.
