Euro 2024: Looking at How Many Points Third-Place Finishers Need to Advance

Germany will face Scotland in the opening game of UEFA Euro 2024. Steady improvement under Julian Nagelsmann has increased the hosts’ hopes of bouncing back from their disastrous World Cup campaign in Qatar. The Mannschaft are now facing their first test in the home tournament, facing a confident Scotland side at Allianz Arena. Here’s our Germany predicted lineup for the upcoming match.

Germany Predicted Lineup vs Germany

How Germany Have Lined up Recently

Nagelsmann has kept experimenting with different lineups in recent months while sticking to his favourite 4-2-3-1 formation.

Manuel Neuer has maintained his No.1 spot, while Antonio Rudiger has partnered Jonathan Tah in central defence. Joshua Kimmich has been moved to the right-back position, justifying the manager’s surprise decision with brilliant performances. Stuttgart’s Maximilian Mittelstädt has emerged as Germany’s starting left back, but Nagelsmann also has David Raum at his disposal for this role.

In midfield, Toni Kroos has returned to the starting lineup and is set to play a vital role in Mannschaft’s bid to win the European trophy on home soil. The Real Madrid star has mainly paired up with Robert Andrich, who comes into the tournament after a fairytale season with Bayer Leverkusen.

Germany’s promising youngsters Florian Wirtz and Jamal Musiala have continued their respective roles on the left and right wings, with Ilkay Gundogan maintaining his starting place as the team’s first-choice attacking midfielder.

Nagelsmann has continued to start Kai Havertz as his side’s target striker despite Niklas Fulkrug’s fantastic performances for Borussia Dortmund last season.

Germany Recent Form and Tactics

The Mannschaft’s recovery from their embarrassing 2022 World Cup campaign has not been smooth, but they have gradually improved their form under Nagelsmann in recent months. The hosts look to solve their “identity crisis” with a combination of veteran stars and youngsters – after a strong season for German teams in European club football.

The Euro 2024 hosts won their first game of the year against France in late March before beating the Netherlands 2-1. Germany played two warmup matches as part of their final preparations for the tournament. On June 3, they were held to a goalless draw by Ukraine before claiming a 2-1 victory over Greece at Borussia Park three days later.

Germany Injuries To Consider

Aleksandar Pavlovic has been ruled out of the tournament after coming down with tonsillitis. Nagelsmann called Borussia Dortmund’s Emre Can to replace him in the squad, saying he wanted a player who “knows how to deal with the pressure”.

Leroy Sane has fully recovered from a pubic bone injury that kept him out of Bayern Munich’s final game of the season. However, the 28-year-old still faces serious competition to reclaim his starting place in the national team.
