GER vs NZ Dream11 Hockey | New Zealand vs Germany FIH Pro League Preview

Christchurch, 15 February at 11:30 AM IST

The hosts New Zealand would look to get their FIH Pro League campaign up and running when they meet Germany at Nga Puna Wai turf on Friday. Black Sticks have struggled so far in the competition, slapped with two losses in the first three games while one game ended in a draw. In the last outing, Black Stick took a 6-2 beaten from Great Britain.

Meanwhile, sixth-ranked Germany had a tough tournament opener against Australia to start the tournament. After a 4-2 loss to the Kookaburras the previous week, the German side would look to open the account against a side that has struggled so far.

The last meeting between the two sides was a high scoring affair, where Germany gave New Zealand a 7-4 thumping.
