UKR vs GER Dream11 Prediction: Germany travels to Kyiv to take on Ukraine in the third round of the UEFA Nations League groups stages. After beating Switzerland 2-1 in the first matchup, Andriy Shevchenko’s men have suffered back-to-back humiliating losses to Spain and France. They lost 4-0 to Spain on the second matchday of the Nations League and then sunk to an embarrassing 7-1 defeat in Paris. France did not even start their best team with Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann coming off the bench to score goals and seal the result. As for Germany, they played out a 3-3 draw at home to Turkey with a second-string squad featuring the likes of Gian-Luca Waldschmidt. Joachim Lowes men will not be happy with the start to their Nations Leagues campaign as they remain without a win, drawing both games in a 1-1 against Spain and Switzerland both. They will now make the trip to Eastern Europe and face a team that has conceded eleven goals in two games, scoring just one. Joachim Low will be targeting this game for Germany to finally win their first game on the campaign and start putting pressure on Spain.

Bookmakers have heavily laid the odds against Ukraine and it’s clear why. Facing sides like Spain, France and Germany consecutively is no easy task but Ukraine has crumbled on a level that is simply unacceptable to fans. Conceding 11 goals in 2 games often calls for drastic changes but having already announced the teams, Ukraine doesn’t have that privilege. Once a great forward, Andriy Shevchenko, will look to change some team tactics and fire the players up. There is a lot more at stake this time as only the group leaders progress to the next round. However, even Germany will be aware of that fact that will want to get back to winning ways as soon as possible. Spain is currently leading the table and anything less than a win will basically give the La Roja a great advantage while they themselves play Switzerland who is bottom of the table. Germany will play a full-strength squad after resting most of their key-players against Turkey and will be raring to go against Ukraine. If Ukraine wants to win or even get a draw, they will have to produce something very special against the Germans. So make better decisions while selecting players in UKR vs GER Dream11 Match Prediction
Serge Gnabry – Germany has a brilliant player to lead the line in Serge Gnabry. Doing a great job for Bayern Munich, alongside Robert Lewandowski. His goal scoring record is impeccable and will be well-rested after missing the international friendly against Turkey. Ukrainian defenders must be cursing their luck, having to face Kylian Mbappe and Serge Gnabry consecutively!
Andriy Yarmolenko – The experienced forward will be on a mission to set things right after disastrous results for Ukraine but faces a tough challenge in the German defence. He has 38 goals and 20 assists for the Ukraine national team and has begun this season well, scoring 2 goals and providing 3 assists in 5 games for West Ham United.
Timo Werner – Playing alongside Serge Gnabry will be Chelsea man – Timo Werner. Werner got off the mark for Chelsea but has scored just that one goal in 5 games for the Blues. He does, however, have 12 goals and 2 assists for the German national team in 3 appearances and will look to strike up a free-scoring partnership with Serge Gnabry before the Euros.
X-factors (differential picks)
Toni Kroos – One of the best midfielders of this generation, Toni Kroos, has won it all. He won the World Cup with Germany and multiple Champions League titles with Real Madrid. He has a very good assists record and playing behind the likes of Serge Gnabry and Timo Werner, he will only look to increase those numbers.
Ruslan Malinovsky He is yet to do well for Ukraine but has been in fine form and it just seems like a matter of time. He has 10 goal contributions (5 goals and 5 assists) so far and gets a goal contribution every three games. Malinovsky had a great 2019/20 campaign with Atalanta, having scored 9 goals and provided 7 assists from midfield.
Kai Havertz – The big-money signing from Bayern Leverkusen to Chelsea has found it a little hard to adapt to the Premier League but he will be in his element for the German national team. In the absence of Leroy Sane, Havertz will look to turn heads to the right flank and show the world why he was worth so much money. He did very well against Turkey and assisted two of the goals they scored.
