Our prediction for this Nations League match:
All eyes will be on NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadion when Ukraine and Germany go head to head in the Nations League derby. The Ukrainians kicked off their Nations League campaign with a 2-1 win over Switzerland, but they failed to make life difficult for Spain (0-4) in their second group game. The hosts are eager to get back on course, but they face an uphill task in Saturday’s clash.
Joachim Low’s troops, on the other hand, are eyeing their first win of the process, and they should take advantage of the fact that the game will be played behind closed doors. The likes of Joshua Kimmich, Manuel Neuer, Leon Goretzka, and Serge Gnabry return to the squad, but fellow Bayern Munchen footballers Jerome Boateng and Thomas Muller have been omitted. Leroy Sane and Thilo Kehrer are out of contention through injury, but given Germany’s strength in depth, away win should be considered.
