Low to make 6 changes – Predicted 4-2-3-1 Germany line-up to face Brazil

World champions Germany will take on Brazil in an international friendly on Tuesday night in Berlin, as they continue their preparations for the summer’s FIFA World Cup 2018. 

Die Mannschaft were held to a 1-1 draw by Spain on Friday night in their first friendly of this ongoing international break and manager Joachim Low will be hoping to do one better against the Selecao and clinch a victory at home.  

Team News

Midfielder Emre Can has been ruled out of the game due to a back problem and has returned to Liverpool to join up with his club. Key players Thomas Muller and Mesut Ozil also have returned to their respective clubs and will not be a part of Low’s side on Tuesday. Sami Khedira is also a doubt to be involved, after picking up an injury against Spain.  

Here’s how Germany could take the field against Tite’s Brazil side; 

Predicted Germany XI to face Brazil

Manager: Joachim Low

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Bernd Leno (GK)

The Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper could get a chance to prove his credentials between the sticks on Tuesday night, in place of Marc-Andre ter Stegen.  

Joshua Kimmich (RB)

At right-back, Bayern Munich prodigy Joshua Kimmich is expected to feature once again from the get-go for the Germans. 

Jerome Boateng (CB)

The 29-year old centre-half is an integral part of Low’s team and it is unlikely that he will be left out for the tie against Brazil. 

Niklas Sule (CB)

There could, however, be a change made in the heart of the defence, with Mats Hummels likely to make way for club teammate and promising young defender Niklas Sule.  

Marvin Plattenhardt (LB)

The left-back position could also see a change in personnel, with Jonas Hector being left out of the starting XI for Marvin Plattenhardt.  

Ilkay Gundogan (CM)

With Khedira being a major doubt for the game, Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan could be set to take his place in the line-up. 

Toni Kroos (CM)

Pass master Toni Kroos is pretty much a guaranteed starter for the Germans on Tuesday night in the middle of the park.

Leon Goretzka (RW)

With Thomas Muller ruled out, Leon Goretzka, who replaced him in the first game as a substitute, is likely to start on the right. 

Julian Draxler (CAM)

The 24-year old PSG attacking midfielder Julian Draxler could be moved into a central role in the absence of Mesut Ozil. 

Leroy Sane (LW)

On the left flank, it will be Manchester City’s lightning-fast winger Leroy Sane. He will be hoping to make an important contribution against the Brazilians.  

Timo Werner (ST)

And spearheading the attack for Germany on Tuesday in Berlin will once again be Timo Werner. Failed to score against Spain and will be keen on changing that against Brazil.
