Tip Germany - Serbia
Germany heads to the game with the bold decision by head coach Joachim Loew to drop a number of old guard as he looks to give the team a fresh face following a number of unconvincing performances in the past few months. Matts Hummels, Jerome Boateng and Thomas Muller have all been told their time at the team is over while a number of youngsters are set to get their debuts. Germany were relegated in the UEFA Nations League in a group that had France and Netherlands and four wins in the last 15 matches say all about their decline over the past few years. Meanwhile, they meet a Serbia team unbeaten in eight of their last 10 matches. Serbia have also not lost a game in their last six outings; their last loss came at the World Cup, in the 0 – 2 loss to Brazil. At the same tournament, Germany had a poor show, falling to Mexico and South Korea as their title defence ended at the group stage but they will take hope in the fact that they have not lost in any of their last five home matches. The two sides have met thrice before; in the last meeting, at the 2010 World Cup, Serbia picked a 1 – 0 win but earlier, Germany had beaten them in two friendly matches.
Key points Germany - Serbia
Serbia are unbeaten in the last six matches.
Germany have beaten Serbia twice in friendly matches.
Germany have not lost in their last five home matches.
Conclusion Germany - Serbia
The big talk ahead and during this match will be based on the changes in the Germany squad but indeed, the manager and the newcomers in the team will be out to prove themselves. Serbia take to the game a good run but then they meet a Germany team eager to prove their worth and playing at home, where they have had a great run of form. We expect a win for Germany here.
