ESP vs GER International Friendly Dream 11 Football Prediction Fantasy Team News
Germany vs Spain
ESP vs GER MATCH PREVIEW:
That's the beauty of International Break, it pits big teams against each other which we may not see playing against each other in big tournaments. Though it's still a friendly match, expect a no-nonsense approach from both sets of players when Germany and Spain come out from the tunnel to face each other at Esprit Arena, Düsseldorf.
The game literally opens the road for preparation for the global showpiece event FIFA World Cup, and the win for either team will definitely give a psychological edge to the victory ahead of the all-important quadrennial football tournament.
Despite four years since their title triumph in Brazil, the host still has the core of that team which won Germany's fourth World Cup. Joachim Low has so much talent at his disposal that he decided not to include the likes of Marco Reus and Mario Gotze in his team for the international football fixtures.
The DFB Eleven are looking even more dangerous as they have added some brilliant talent like Timo Werner to their ranks. The RB Leipzig striker has already scored seven goals in 10 games for his country. And with the likes of Muller, Ozil, and Sane in the team, you can bet on him to add a goal or two to his impressive international tally.
Spain, on the other hand, are not an underdog by any means despite traveling to Germany to take on the host nation. Their star power is as big as any other big team in the world. The likes of Sergio Ramos, Gerard Pique, Andres Iniesta, David Silva, and Isco gives the La Roja enough experience and star-power not to be intimidated by any team in the world. Though Alvaro Morata has been ruled out of this match because of injury, the replacement in Diego Costa is not an understudy by almost any measure.

Match Timing: Tomorrow, March 24, 01:15 AM IST
Venue: Esprit Arena, Düsseldorf
Form of the teams-
Germany haven't lost a match since their shock loss against France at 2016 Euro. While they finished their FIFA World Cup qualification with 10 wins in 10 games. Also, the four-times WC Champions added Confederations Cup success to their impressive trophy cabinet. So they are in very good form-
Spain are also the team in fine form heading into this match. The 2010 world cup winners also haven't tasted a defeat since Euro 2016 when a certain Antonio Conte masterminded the end of Vicente del Bosque’s illustrious career. The La Roja finished their FIFA World Cup qualification with 9 wins in 10 games. While the other match ended in a draw against Italy.
