Description: GER Vs SUI Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Buoyed by their first ever win in the tournament, Germany look to finally embark on a winning spree.
Germany needed a grand 25 months and two editions of the UEFA Nations League to register their first win of the showpiece tournament but despite the arduous delay, the side will be glad the win finally came about. Although far from convincing, the 2-1 result against Ukraine was a performance the side had yearned for over two years now.
It broke the side’s rut of two defeats on the bounce in Group D of League A, three points which took them two points clear to second place. Finally out of the soup they were, the side will be looking to act as more than mere sitting ducks and ascertain themselves of a spot in the ensuing round with a second win on the bounce today.
Out foraging for a win, Germany couldn’t have asked for a better opposition to wrap up their second round fixtures in the competition. The team is paired off against bottom placed Switzerland, the ideal opposition to build on its triumph against Ukraine against.
GER Vs SUI Fantasy Probable Winner
While Switzerland have done themselves proud with some resilient performances till now including a narrowly lost 1-0 tie to leaders Spain, the fact that they have no wins is all that matters. The team is fast running adrift of the top 2 slots and with Germany set to defeat them today as well, Switzerland look to have run their race in the UNL.

Spain Vs Switzerland: 1-0
Yann Sommer from Switzerland will be retaining his place in our side as the goal-keeper for this contest. He played an integral role in his side’s relatively well disciplined showing with his string of saves helping limit Spain to the lone goal.
The last time these two sides had taken on each other, Switzerland had managed to fend away a string of German attacking waves. It was an incredible show of fight and character from the club, one which saw the team pull off their only point of the contest till now.
The side will be looking to emulate that display today as well. It will see Ricardo Rodriguez and Nico Elvedi take centrestage for the side, two names more than capable of spurning Germany’s repeated attacking advances.
Germany might not have kept a cleansheet till now but this might just be the contest where they end up with one. The team is up against a side which has scored on a meagre two occasions, a side the Germans know they can easily quash today.
It sees us opt for a trio of picks from the side, one made up of Matthias Ginter who scored the last time around with Antonio Rudiger and Lukas Klostermann slotting in next to him.
Both Joshua Kimmich and Toni Kroos have been crucial components of Germany’s midfield. The two are not only players who can come up with peach of a shot but are creators of attacking plays as well, names whose ball handling abilities enable them to spray the ball all over the park.
Leon Goretzka scored for the Germans against Ukraine to see him wrap up the trio of picks from the side while the one assist for Granit Xhaka makes him our lone pick from Switzerland.
Timo Werner is now fully fit and he should be back leading his side’s attack on the day
Captain And Vice-Captain
With a goal in the tournament already, Timo captains our team for today while Gosens is our vice-captain.
Bushchan, Gosens, Can, Klostermann, Kroos, Draxler, Andriy, Kimmich, Ruslan, Werner, Roman
