Spain

Luis de la Fuente's side have been dominant on their way into the quarter-finals, reaching this stage for the fourth time in their last five Euros appearances. Spain head into Friday's blockbuster battle having not lost any of their last six competitive meetings (W3 D3) with Germany since 1998.

Spain is expected to name an unchanged starting lineup on Friday, with 16-year-old La Masia talent Lamine Yamal and Athletic Bilbao star Nico Williams set to join captain Alvaro Morata in a three-man attack. Both Olmo and Mikel Merino will be coming off the bench. Pedri is expected to continue alongside Rodri and Fabian Ruiz in the first XI.

Nacho has recovered from a minor foot injury and is available for selection. But Le Normand or Aymeric Laporte will most likely start at the back with Dani Carvajal and Marc Cucurella continuing as full-backs. Unai Simon is a wall in the goal and will play a huge role in the match against Germany.

Hosts Germany are aiming for their first European Championship title since 1996 after they beat a strong Denmark team in the round of 16 last Saturday. Germany rank in the top three for the most goals scored (10), most attacks (265), most attempts on goal (71), highest average possession (62%), and fewer goals conceded (two). They are looking like a stable and strong team under Nagelsmann. 

Germany have won only two of their last 11 meetings with Spain in all competitions. Nagelsmann may bring back centre-back Jonathan Tah in the starting XI who served a suspension in the last 16 match. Left-back Maximilian Mittelstadt was dropped against Denmark, but he must start the game against Spain. The fullbacks of Germany will have to drop their best games against the Spanish wingers.

Florian Wirtz could return on the left side of the attack, allowing Musiala to move over to the right. Niclas Fullkrug scored an equalizer in the 1-1 draw with Spain at the 2022 World Cup, but he will most likely come off the bench in the second half to replace Kai Havertz. A midfield trio of Toni Kroos, Robert Andrich, and Ilkay Gundogan is set to remain intact.

Possible XIs

Spain's possible starting lineup:

Simon; Carvajal, Le Normand, Laporte, Cucurella; Pedri, Rodri, Ruiz; Yamal, Morata, Williams

Germany's possible starting lineup:

Neuer; Kimmich, Tah, Rudiger, Raum; Kroos, Andrich; Musiala, Gundogan, Wirtz; Havertz

Spain vs Germany: Fantasy XI Prediction

Unai Simon; Dani Carvajal, Aymeric Laporte, Antonio Rudiger, Marc Cucurella; Rodri, Pedri, Toni Kroos; Jamal Musiala, Alvaro Morata, Lamine Yamal
