Spain vs Germany preview

Spain enjoyed the biggest win of the World Cup so far when they dismantled a poor Costa Rica side in their opening game of Group E. Perhaps most impressively Spain’s seven goals came from six different scorers displaying the sheer quality that runs through this team. The result was La Roja’s biggest-ever win at a World Cup. While it’s unlikely Spain will dominate Germany in quite such a convincing fashion as they did Costa Rica, right now Luis Enrique’s men are one of the clear favorites for World Cup glory and will look to send out statement to their rivals here. 

A high-flying Spain is likely one of the last sides that a bruised Germany would want to face right now. Once a force in international soccer, Germany’s recent history has been poor with a group stage exit at World Cup 2018 and a poor round of 16 defeat to England at Euro 2020. That streak continued with an unexpected defeat to Japan in their first group-stage game in Qatar. Germany don’t have time to lick their wounds, they need to bounce back quickly if they want to avoid consecutive World Cup group stage exits. Will the pressure be too much for Hansi Flick’s men or will the famously ruthless Germans remind the footballing world of their undeniable quality?

The Spain vs Germany live stream is arguably the most tantalizing fixture of the World Cup 2022 to date, and it’s sure to be match that will enthralling soccer fans across the globe. Make sure you don’t miss this match, it’s sure to be a thrilling encounter. 

Spain vs Germany team news

Alvaro Morata came off the bench to score Spain’s final goal against Costa Rica, and will be pushing to start here. Of course, the question of who would make way is a hard one to answer. Ferran Torres and Marco Asensio seem unlikely to be dropped. Coming off the back of a 7-0 win it’s unlikely that we’ll see many changes from Luis Enrique. 

Germany could look to freshen things up after their hugely disappointing defeat to Japan. Leroy Sane missed that game through injury but could be fit to play at least some part against Spain. Persistent questions surround the continued selection of Chelsa’s Kai Havertz, could his place in the starting XI be under threat?
