Germany haven’t played a competitive fixture since the 2022 World Cup, where they failed to even make it to the knockouts.
As hosts of the upcoming European Championship, Die Mannschaft have already qualified for the prestigious tournament, which will be available to watch via football streams. Therefore, they have been involved in friendly matches only this year.
Germany have had a mixed start in 2023, losing four of their opening six games. But they have been more promising in recent months as they overcame France in September before also emerging victorious against the United States.
Julian Nagelsmann’s side also came away with a 2-2 draw from Mexico last month after goals in either half from Antonio Rudiger and Niclas Füllkrug.
Germany’s fixtures in the international break
The 2014 World Cup winners will host Turkey on Saturday, 18 November at the Olympiastadion Berlin.
They have already been through to the finals after picking up 16 points from their seven matches to be at the summit of Group D.
And so Vincenzo Montella’s side are unlikely to be under any pressure to get a positive result against Wales in their last qualifier.
Marvin Ducksch, Robert Andrich and Grischa Pomel will all be looking to make their first appearance for Germany, but we expect Nagelsmann to introduce a strong XI for the first whistle.
If the uncapped players don’t get an opportunity in Berlin, they will fancy their chances against Austria, who they are set to face on Tuesday, 21 November.
Ralf Rangnick’s men have already secured qualification to the Euros following their victory over Azerbaijan last month.
Austria were also at the top of their game on Thursday when they outclassed Estonia 2-0 in an away fixture at the A. Le Coq Arena.
Not much is at stake when they meet Germany in Vienna, but both are very good teams and the contest is expected to be very interesting.
