SPA Vs GER Fantasy Team, Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Concluding Group 4 encounter set to determine the group’s winner.
Although Germany haven’t won us over in this edition of the UEFA Nations League, the 2020-21 sortie is a stark comparison to the club’s appearance of the tournament in its inaugural edition. Unlike that season, the Germans have managed to accrue their first wins in the UEFA Nations League this time around.
While both of those wins have come against Ukraine, they have been enough to see an unbeaten Germany outfit sit atop of the group standings. Extremely fortuitous to occupy that slot with Spain losing their way at the moment, the Germans will be looking to assert the spot in their culminating Group 4 clash today.
Where Germany have somehow managed to scamper their way to 9 points, Spain have been quite so lucky. The club has failed to win its last two outings in the group with the foregone 1-1 draw to Switzerland being a particularly hard pill to digest as Ramos missed two penalties for the side.
The last time these two took on each other, either side walked away with the one point from the 1-1 draw. Given the string of injuries to have hit both these sides, this matchup will be played out in familiar fashion to the last time these two met each other with this one ending in a draw as well.

SPA Vs GER Fantasy Team Picks
Manuel Neuer from Germany will find a place in our setup as the goal-keeper for today’s encounter. With Spain scoring just once in their last two outings, the German shot stopper will be quietly confident of recording a cleansheet today.
Given the appalling manner in which Spain’s attacking setup has gone on a downtick, the club will focus all its attention to the defensive side of the game. Despite conceding in their last couple of clashes, the country continues to remain the most pristine defence in the group with just three goals let past it in 5 fixtures.
It sees us opt for a trivalent of picks from the side, one comprising of top scorer Sergio Ramos, Pau Torres and Sergio Reguilon who has the two assists. The Germans on the other hand will see us indulge in the services of a duo as well given Spain’s dreary attacking gameplan with Philipp Max and one goal and one assist man Mathias Ginter being roped in from the side.
The one assist Mikel Merino has for the Spanish side see him be inducted in our side from the country. The Germans on the other hand will see us opt for Toni Kroos and Leon Goretzka, a partnership capable of transitioning the ball from defence to attack and turning over play pristinely for the side.
Timo Werner is in the form of his life at the moment with both Germany and Chelsea. He scored twice for his country against Ukraine, goals which make him an instant pick for us for the day’s outing.
Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane will link up with him, two players more than capable of intertwining their capabilities and making life tiresome for Spain’s defence.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Ramos’ two goals see him step up as our captain for today with Werner being our vice-captain.
Manuel, Max, Ginter, Ramos, Pau, Sergio, Kroos, Merino, Leon, Werner, Gnabry, Sane
