class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>With both teams missing some key players, Al Hain-Cole expects Die Mannschaft's superior squad depth to prove decisive against Petkovic's men
Germany remain in the hunt for their first ever Nations League victory when they travel to Basel to take on Switzerland on Sunday.
Die Mannschaft conceded a 95th-minute equaliser two draw 1-1 at home to Spain on Thursday, their third stalemate in five winless matches in this competition.
Switzerland vs Germany Latest Odds
Nevertheless, they are 4/5 (1.80) favourites with bet365 to finally make their mark at this level by coming out on top at St Jakob-Park.
Vladimir Petkovic’s men suffered a 2-1 defeat in Ukraine in their tournament opener but can be backed at 10/3 (4.33) to bounce back with a shock win or 13/5 (3.60) to hold their guests to yet another draw.
Switzerland vs Germany Team News
Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, Manuel Neuer, Serge Gnabry, Lukas Klostermann and Marcel Halstenberg are all missing due to their involvement in the latter stages of the Champions League, although Bayern’s Niklas Sule and Leroy Sane plus PSG duo Thilo Kehrer and Julian Draxler are included.
Xherdan Shaqiri, Fabian Schar, Remo Freuler, Denis Zakaria, Admir Mehmedi and Cedric Itten are all absent due to injury, while Edimilson Fernandes is in quarantine.
Switzerland vs Germany Preview
With such a congested summer break and quarantine measures causing havoc, these Nations League fixtures are taking place without a number of high profile players in almost every game.
While this is also true for Joachim Low’s team, the talent pool available to him is so deep that he can still afford to leave someone like rising star Kai Havertz on the bench for Thursday’s draw with Spain.
In contrast, the Nati looked desperately short of inspiration in Thursday’s defeat in Lviv against a modest Ukraine side also missing a number of first team regulars.
Switzerland vs Germany Tips and Predictions
With a bigger squad to call upon, Germany look well worth those 4/5 (1.80) odds to extend their winning streak on the road to five in a row when they face a weakened Switzerland outfit.
