After a disappointing start to the World Cup campaign, the defending champions Germany are keen on going all out on the last two fixtures to secure their place in the round of 16. They will be taking on Sweden on Saturday in their second round-robin fixture.
On the other hand, with a winning start over South Korea, Sweden will be highly optimistic to make another upset like Mexico to knock the Germans out of the tournament.
Germany vs Sweden Team News:
Germany man-in-charge Joakim Low has created a raucous by leaving the impressive Manchester City star Leroy Sane. In addition, his team selection in the first match has raised a few questions as well. Naturally, he might scrutinize his decision and make some changes in his team.
The inclusion of Marco Reus and Leon Goretzka is highly expected following the unimpressive performances of the veteran midfielder Sami Khedira and the left-wing-back Marvin Plattenhardt. Apart from that, he might assign Thomas Muller on the frontline alongside the youngster Timo Werner.
Update: Mats Hummels’s place in the starting XI has become doubtful as he suffered a training injury yesterday after twisting his neck. So, the Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger is expected to start the game for the defending champions.
On the other end of the pitch, the Swedish manager Janne Andersson is expected to make no changes in his squad.
Germany vs Sweden Possible Line-ups:
Germany do have lots of key players on their team. But few of them can really change the dimension of the game. This includes the Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller, Borussia Dortmund winger Marco Reus, the Real Madrid midfield maestro Toni Kroos and so on. Apart from that, Joshua Kimmich, presently the most utility player in the side can also make some impacts on the game.
On the other hand, for Sweden, the veteran Sebastian Larsson will be highly optimistic to make an impact in his last World Cup tournament. Apart from that, the Leipzig star Emil Forsberg also can cause some threats to the German defense.
