Ronald Koeman's side had the better of the 2014 World Cup winners last year, but it's a new start with both looking to secure Euro 2020 qualifcation

Netherlands and Germany battled to a 2-2 draw in November in the Nations League, and now the two sides meet again as they look to secure Euro 2020 qualification.

Ronald Koeman's men also triumphed in October 2018 over the 2014 World Cup winners, claiming an impressive 3-0 victory to help secure their Nations League Finals qualification.

However, it's a fresh slate for both sides as they aim to top Group C and push on to next year's European Championships.

Squads & Team News


Position Netherlands squad
Goalkeepers Cillessen, Zoet, Bizot
Defenders Tete, De Ligt, Van Dijk, Ake, Van Aanholt, Blind, Dumfries
Midfielders Propper, Wijnaldum, De Roon, Strootman, Vilhena, Van de Beek, Frenkie de Jong
Forwards Bergwijn, Babel, Depay, Promes, Berghuis, Luuk de Jong

Ronald Koeman has no added injury concerns heading into the clash, with 56-year-old making just one change to the line-up which defeated Belarus 4-0 on Thursday.

Quincy Promes is preferred to Steven Bergwijn in attack in an otherwise unchanged side.

Netherlands starting XI: Cillessen; Dumfries, De Ligt, Van Dijk, Blind; De Roon, Wijnaldum, De Jong; Promes, Babel, Depay.


Position Germany squad
Goalkeepers Neuer, Trapp, Ter Stegen
Defenders Sule, Stark, Rudiger, Kehrer, Halstenberg, Ginter, Tah
Midfielders Klostermann, Kimmech, Kroos, Schulz, Eggestein. Brandt, Reus, Goretzka, Gundogan, Havertz
Forwards Sane, Gnabry, Werner

Timo Werner led the German line last time out, but he has been dropped in favour of Leon Goretzka, who looks set to play a false nine role. 

Leroy Sane has been deemed fit enough to start despite being subbed off against Serbia following a poor tackle from Milan Pavkov.

Elsewhere, Marco Reus has surprisingly been left out of the lineup after coming off the bench against Serbia, while Manuel Neuer retains his place in goal ahead of Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

The visitors are without Lukas Klostermann after he picked up a muscle injury in his debut on Wednesday.

Germany starting XI: Neuer; Ginter, Sule, Rudiger; Kehrer, Kimmich, Kroos, Schulz; Gnabry, Goretzka, Sane.

Match Preview


Joachim Low Germany 2019

Joachim Low is continuing to re-invigorate his Germany team after a dismal World Cup campaign in Russia last year which saw them eliminated at the group stage despite being the defending champions.

His recent decision to announce Thomas Muller, Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels would not be part of the squad moving forward was a bold one, and he needs a win against the likes of the Netherlands to prove it was the correct thing to do.

One senior player who survived the cull was Marco Reus, with the Borussia Dortmund man full of belief that the 2014 World Cup winners can triumph on Sunday night.

"If we have the right mindset and work together as a team, then we have every chance of getting a result there," Reus said.

"We need to be quick on the counter, stay compact in defence and we have to want it.

"If we do that on the night, then it's difficult for anyone against us and I'm confident that we will win the game."

Germany battled to a 1-1 draw in a friendly against Serbia on Wednesday, with Leon Goretzka's second-half goal cancelling out Luka Jovic's opener.

While the Netherlands don't possess a prolific out-and-out striker with the talent of Jovic, they do have a revitalised Memphis Depay who will undoubtedly cause the new-look German defence problems.

The former Manchester United man bagged two goals against Belarus last time out for Koeman's side, and he will be confident of finding the scoresheet again in front of a home crowd.

Behind him, the Netherlands are becoming a serious force with quality operators all over the pitch.

Virgil van Dijk has developed into one the best defenders in the world since his transfer to Liverpool, and he's brought his club form over to the international set-up.

The 27-year-old has four goals in his last six internationals, and he's insisted his team need to perform their very best to claim a result.

"We must worry about ourselves and not Germany," said skipper Van Dijk. "The Germans still have fantastic players, even if they might be talking over here about a crisis.

"We also had a spell like that where things did not go for us. That was not a good phase. But I don't think we are favourites."
