Germany and Argentina meet in one of the most interesting games of this international break. Although this game is a non-competitive fixture, a lot is at stake and Argentine fans would be hoping that their team can avenge the loss they suffered at the 2014 World Cup final.
Germany are in a transition phase at the moment. The German Machines flopped at the last World Cup and several of their established stars paid the price as Joachim Löw retired the likes of Jerome Boateng and Thomas Muller.
They are now looking to bring through a new set of players with 90 times capped Manuel Neuer the only player with more than 50 caps in the current set up.
Playing at home means Germany will be under pressure to deliver and keep the mood a good one ahead of their return to competitive action.
Argentina also flopped at the last World Cup and they will still be without the services of Lionel Messi as they look to build a team around a new set of stars.
After losing the 2014 World Cup to the Germans, this will be an opportunity for them to get vengeance but their form hasn’t been the best after the World Cup.
Lautaro Martinez looks a good goal outlet and the Inter Milan striker comes into this game after scoring a hattrick in his last international. He also scored a fine goal against Barcelona in the Champions League last week so he looks like he can be trusted here as well.
Germany haven’t looked very convincing at the back in recent games and shipped 4 goals at home against the Netherlands so they may struggle here again.
