17th November 2020 – 20:45, Estadio de La Cartuja, Sevilla
Spain and Germany will fight for the top spot in Group 4 of the UEFA Nations League Division A. The hosts search for the victory, while the away side needs a point to secure a place in the playoffs.
Match Preview & Team News
Spain had a very good start to the campaign, and after three rounds, the hosts were two points ahead of their upcoming rivals. However, they snatched just a point from the past two games and slipped to the 2nd spot. Spain suffered a surprising 1:0 defeat against Ukraine in October, while they managed to pick up just a draw away to Switzerland. Sergio Ramos missed two penalty kicks in that game, and eventually, that cost them the victory. Luis Enrique’s side cannot be content with its form lately, as Spain celebrated just once in the last five matches. They have trouble converting chances into goals, as the hosts didn’t score more than once six out of the previous seven occasions.
On the other hand, their defense hasn’t managed to keep the clean sheet three times in a row. Spain booked their last victory over Germany in 2010, and they need to step up this time if they want the place in the playoffs. Ansu Fati, Thiago Alcantara, and Daniel Carvajal will be sidelined for this game.
Germany has been undefeated 12 games in a row, but we cannot say they have been confident in that period. The visitors were involved in five draws during this streak, and thanks to the poor form of their rivals, they are one point ahead of Spain. Joachim Low’s side won twice in a row, but they needed to search for a comeback after being 1:0 down against Ukraine on Saturday. Timo Werner’s brace helped them keep the top spot and hold the strings of destiny in their hands. The away side has trouble keeping the heir net intact, as they managed to keep the clean sheet just once on the last eight occasions. Kai Havertz won’t be able to help his teammates on Tuesday due to an injury.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Head to head clashes between these two teams in the past 12 years have been very tight. The last two ended in a draw, and it is going to be another close battle. Neither of these two sides is considered a favorite in this clash, and we won’t be surprised if it ends in another tie.
Goals Market Prediction
Although their recent encounters haven’t been so efficient, we believe the nets won’t remain still. Germany has incredible attacking potential, while its defense needs to do better. Spain can exploit that and score at least once.
