Germany vs Italy Predictions for UEFA Nations League
Germany will be looking to snap their current funk that has seen the national team draw in each of its previous three games. Through three matches in the UEFA Nations League, Germany has just three points. They’ll look to double that tally with a win at home against Italy on Tuesday, in which some of the best players from both sides should be looking to make an impact.
It’s anticipated that Germany will line up with the likes of Timo Werner in attack, in addition to mainstays such as Thomas Müller, Leroy Sane, Joshua Kimmich, and Ilkay Gundogan in the midfield. The defense will likely consist of Anthony Rudiger, Lucas Klostermann, and possibly Niklas Sule. There is certainly quality in the German team, but they are no longer the dominant beasts they once were. FIFA rankings indicate that Germany is the No. 12 country in its world rankings, coming in six places behind No. 6 Italy.
Germany’s top goalscorer in the competition has been Jonas Hoffman, who’s found the back of the net twice in three appearances thus far.
As for Italy, they’re at the top of Group 3 with five points through three matches. A 1-1 tie with Germany and a goalless draw with England were hard-fought battles, and they managed to take down Hungary 2-1. With just three goals through as many games, Italy will be looking to get a bit more from their attackers.
Italy has shuffled its lineup around during Nations League play, but the likes of Nico Barella and Sandro Tonali will almost certainly be in the mix against a stout German team that will look to dominate the midfield. Additionally, Gianluigi Donnarumma will likely take his place in between the sticks and look to record a second consecutive clean sheet after silencing England his last time out.
We’re expecting a low-scoring affair between two of Europe’s top teams, as neither side has been able to find much success in the attacking third during the competition. Both boast formidable defenses, so chances at scoring a goal will be hard to come by. In the end, we’re expecting a 1-1 draw between the two evenly matched sides, similar to how things went in their last meeting.
