Team News

Switzerland

Switzerland are unbeaten in their last three meetings with Germany. The Swiss have not lost their final group game in any of their last eight tournament appearances so it is going to be very interesting to see what happens on Monday at Frankfurt. They are most likely set to start with the same side. Breel Embolo is heading closer to full fitness after his long injury layoff and could even start on Monday.

Xherdan Shaqiri scored against Scotland and he will hope to retain his place, But it is unlikely to happen as Murat Yakin may take a more cautious approach against the hosts. Denis Zakaria has been struggling with a thigh injury but is now expected to rejoin the Swiss squad and take a place among the substitutes. Granit Xhaka is irreplaceable with Freuler and Aebischer in front of him.

Ndoye and Vargas must start the game and they will like to see themselves on the scoresheet against the Germans. Manuel Akanji dropped a man-of-the-match performance in the last game and he will start the game alongside Fabian Schar with Sommer at the goal. A draw would be enough for them to qualify for the next round. Even if they lose against Germany by a narrow 1-0 margin it wouldn't affect much.

After a sensational start, Germany are unlikely to make many changes to a winning side this weekend, with boss Julian Nagelsmann aiming for continuity as he has already found his best eleven to take on any opponents. Although his side hasn't faced much of a challenge so far, it will be a real test against a strong Swiss side.

Ilkay Gundogan, Jamal Musiala, and Florian Wirtz will be in support of Kai Havertz up front and they have dominated so far. Toni Kroos is irreplaceable and he is not looking like a player who has already announced his retirement. He is dropping masterclass performances in every game. Andrich is rock solid while Tah and Rudiger will lead the backline with Kimmich and Mittestadt on the wings.

Manel Neuer will be guarding the goal unless Nagelsmann decides to go with Barcelona legend Ter Stegen. Germany are looking like a stable strong side and they have already booked their spot in the next round. The game against Switzerland will be a real test before they head further into the competition.
