stories
Germany: The squad for this match is missing some key players like Manuel Neuer in goal, and the Bayern Munich player just won the Champions League. That means an inexperienced national goalkeeper will start, be it Kevin Trapp (Eintracht Frankfurt), Bernd Leno (Arsenal) and Oliver Baumann (Hoffenheim). The defense and midfield look quite strong, while there are only two forwards on the side. One of them is the signing of Chelsea star Timo Werner, who scored in his friendly debut with the Blues. This will probably start.



Spain: Luis Enrique has called up a squad that has many players who have never played for the national team, but many of them have very high expectations. Ansu Fati, a young Barcelona sensation, is in the team, as is Manchester City's new signing, Ferran Torres. The question will be who is leading the front line. It will probably be between the new signing of Leeds, Rodrigo, or that of Villarreal, Gerard Moreno. Expect the creativity to be there with Thiago, with him looking to play his cousin Rodrigo over and over again within the area.

Germany vs Spain prediction
Both teams struggle a bit in the last third early, and the game is completely over. Choose: Germany 1, Spain 1
