UEFA Nations League, Spain vs Germany: Preview, Dream11 and more
Spain and Germany will face each other in a blockbuster encounter in Seville tonight. Both teams are expected to give their all as a spot in the semi-finals of the 2020-21 UEFA Nations League up for grabs. Germany are unbeaten so far in League A, Group 4 and top the proceedings. Ahead of this crucial match, we look at the preview.
A draw against Switzerland on matchday five saw Spain miss out on two crucial points. They need a victory at home to seal the deal. Luis Enrique needs his side to step up and deliver the goods here. Notably, Spain have conceded just three goals so far and will want to shore up the defence once again. One expects them to stand tall.
Germany are point clear of second-placed Spain at the summit, meaning that a draw tonight would be enough to secure first position. Their 3-1 win against Ukraine gave them a space to breathe. Advancing to the final four will be something crucial for Germany and they will be out to stop the hosts. Spain will need to be wary about an in-form Timo Werner.
