Germany and Greece face off on Friday night in an exciting friendly at Borussia-Park.

This match serves as Germany's final warm-up before hosting Euro 2024. Here, we dive into team form, news, predictions, and more.

Match Preview

Germany's Recent Form

Since Julian Nagelsmann took over as Germany's head coach last September, the team has had a mixed record with three wins, two draws, and two losses.

They finished 2023 poorly with defeats against Turkey and Austria, but showed resilience by beating France and the Netherlands in March.

However, a goalless draw against Ukraine in their latest friendly highlighted their ongoing struggles in front of goal, despite dominating the game with 27 shots.

Greece's Recent Form

Greece, on the other hand, is preparing for their first match since March when they were eliminated from Euro 2024 qualifying by Georgia in a penalty shootout.

With Gus Poyet's departure, interim coach Nikolaos Papadopoulos aims to secure Greece's first-ever win against Germany.

Greece's form has been inconsistent, with losses in three of their last four away games without scoring.

Team News

Germany

Nagelsmann has a full squad to choose from, including key players who missed the Ukraine game due to extended breaks after the Champions League final.

Toni Kroos, Antonio Rudiger, Niclas Fullkrug, and Nico Schlotterbeck are back in contention. Kroos could return to midfield alongside captain Ilkay Gundogan, with Joshua Kimmich and Maximilian Mittelstadt likely occupying full-back roles.

Fullkrug, Germany’s top scorer under Nagelsmann, might start as the central striker.

Predicted Lineup: Neuer; Kimmich, Tah, Rudiger, Mittelstadt; Kroos, Andrich; Musiala, Gundogan, Wirtz; Fullkrug

Greece

Greece will miss retired defender Giorgos Tzavellas and key full-backs Kostas Tsimikas and George Baldock. Manolis Saliakas and Dimitris Giannoulis are expected to fill in defensively.

Giorgos Masouras, fresh from winning the Europa Conference League with Olympiacos, could lead the attack alongside Christos Tzolis and Fotis Ioannidis.

Predicted Lineup: Vlachodimos; Saliakas, Chatzidiakos, Mavropanos, Giannoulis; Bakesetas, Kourbelis, Mantalos; Masouras, Ioannidis, Tzolis

Prediction

Germany holds a historical advantage over Greece, having won six of their nine previous encounters.

With a full squad and home advantage, they are favourites to win. Despite recent struggles in converting chances, Germany's depth and quality should see them through.

Our Prediction: Germany 2-0 Greece
