The Nations League kicks off with a potentially exciting fixture between two of the biggest teams in Europe as Germany host Spain in Stuttgart. Germany and Spain are back in action for the first time in 10 months as they face off in the UEFA Nations League on Thursday evening.
Germany last played in November 2019, when they beat Northern Ireland 6-1 in qualifying for Euro 2021, and after winning eight of their last 12 games.
Spain also made light work of their Euro 2021 qualifying and are on an 11-game unbeaten run. They thrashed Romania 5-0 in their most recent outing on November 18 to round off a successful Euro 2020 qualifying campaign in style.
Reason for Germany vs. Spain predictions:
- Fewer than three goals have been scored in each of the last four meetings between Germany and Spain.
- A total of five goals have found the net in these four games.
- Spain’s last two away games both ended in 1-1 draws.
Neither of these sides have been in action since the Euro 2020 qualifiers ended in November, but both finished in fine shape. Germany have won six of their last seven competitive games and face a Spain side unbeaten since November 2018, winning eight of ten games since.
All eyes will be on Mercedes-Benz Arena when German kick off their Nations League campaign with a match against Spain. Die Mannschaft qualified for the Euro finals in style and they want to make a flying start to their Nations League campaign as well.
Germany have netted ten in two games against Belarus and Northern Ireland, while Spain have plundered 12 against Malta and Romania. Both sets of attackers will face much more defensive resistance this time around.
Each of the last four meetings between Germany and Spain have seen fewer than two goals scored, with a grand total of five being netted across these games.
Seven of the 23 previous encounters between the sides have finished all square, with Germany unbeaten in the last two. The last meeting back in March 2018 ended in a 1-1 stalemate and each of Spain’s last two trips away have yielded the same result.
