Germany will face off against Spain at the Al-Bayt Stadium this Sunday as they look to go all out in search of the three points from this crucial 2022 FIFA World Cup clash. The Germans suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at the hands of Japan recently which has hampered their confidence going into this game.

Hansi Flick will set his men up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and could stick with the same starting XI that started versus Japan. Hence, we can once again expect to see Kai Havertz lead the charge for the German national team up top.

4-2-3-1 Germany Predicted Lineup To Face Spain

Defence

Manuel Neuer will function as Germany’s primary keeper after shipping in a couple of goals in his last World Cup appearance. Antonio Rudiger will resume his defensive partnership with Nico Schlotterbeck at the centre of Flick’s defence as they focus on stopping the opposition from creating too many chances during the 90 minutes.

Niklas Sule will operate at right-back while David Raum hopes to put a good performance on the other flank as the left-back. Flick will give both of them the freedom to get forward and create some decent opportunities from the wide areas.

Thilo Kehrer will have to settle for a place on the bench as he provides cover for the defensive positions.

Midfield

Ilkay Gundogan and Joshua Kimmich will anchor the midfield for Germany as they try to win the 50-50 battles at the centre of the park.

The gifted trio of Jamal Musiala, Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry will play just ahead of them as part of Flick’s attack. Both Musiala and Gnabry have to stretch the pitch out on the flanks while Muller looks to use to put his experience and guile to good use from the number ten position.

Leon Goretzka and Mario Gotze will be available for selection on the bench as they await their opportunity to catch the eye in the second half if needed.

Attack

Kai Havertz will lead the line for Flick’s team on the attacking end of the field. The German striker produced a poor performance versus Japan, so he will be eager to put in a much-improved showing in this World Cup at the Al-Bayt Stadium.

Youssoufa Moukoko and Leroy Sane will have to be content with a spot on the bench but might get a chance to impress as the impact substitutes if Flick decides to call upon their services.
