UEFA World Cup Qualifiers: Germany vs Liechtenstein live
The season’s third international break is ready to begin, with club football taking a two-week vacation to make way for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.Germany will be taking on Liechtenstein today at the Volkswagen Arena at Wolfsburg in Germany at exactly 19:45 GMT.
After cruising to a 4-0 victory over North Macedonia last month, Germany became the first nation to qualify for the 2022 World Cup . After a 2-1 home loss to the Red Lynxes in March, Hansi Flick’s team was able to avenge themselves in emphatic fashion, due to goals from Timo Werner (2), Kai Havertz, and Jamal Musiala. With the victory at the Toe Proeski National Arena, new national coach Hans Flick has now won each of his last five matches since taking over from Joachim Löw in September. With 21 points from eight games, Germany lead the group by eight points ahead of second-placed Romania, and they will be hoping to increase the total when Liechtenstein visits.
Martin Stocklasa’s minnows are now occupying the bottom of the pool after losing seven of their first eight world cup qualifiers, with their lone point coming against Armenia in September. They will be hoping to avoid any humiliation and sign off the qualifying campaign on a positive note. When these two teams last met in September, Liechtenstein put up an outstanding fight. Their solid 5-3-2 configuration suited them well, with Benjamin Buchel in goal and Daniel Kaufmann, Andreas Malin, and Jens Hofer in the back five providing defensive protection. And they will be hoping to do same going forward into this game.
The last time both teams met was in September in the World Cup qualifiers which ended in a two nil victory for the Germans. This game will be an exciting one to watch as Germany are sure to go on an excellent display against Liechtenstein.
When Germany last met Liechtenstein in the World Cup qualifiers, they weren’t at their best. It was, however, largely owing to their lack of productivity early in the game, with players missing many vital opportunities. Since then, their goal-scoring form has improved. And going forward into this game, the Germans are likely to pick up a win.
Germany XI: Neuer; Hoffmann, Kehrer, Rüdiger, Günter; Gündogan, Goretzka; Reus, Baku, Sane; Müller
