Germany are looking to bounce back from their 4-2 defeat to fierce local rivals Holland last week, as they travel to Northern Ireland
888Sport Pre-Match Odds: Northern Ireland 17/2, Draw 21/5, Germany 1/3
Northern Ireland have given themselves every chance of qualifying for Euro 2020 by picking up maximum points so far, doing the double over Estonia and Belarus, but those results could ultimately come to mean little, with the top two spots likely defined by their games against more serious opposition.
Germany and the Netherlands have taken points off one another in two memorable clashes, with the Germans winning out 3-2 in Amsterdam courtesy of an injury-time Nico Schulz winner, while they got stung at home last Friday as the Dutch came back from behind to win 4-2.
Schultz is ruled out of this clash, alongside other regulars such as Ilkay Gündogan, Leroy Sane and Leon Goretzka, while old experienced heads such as Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels have controversially been phased out by Jogi Loew.
Expect former Arsenal man Serge Gnabry to lead the line for the Germans, while the hosts will likely stick with largely the same team that beat Luxembourg 1-0 in a friendly last wing, although Leeds United's Stuart Dallas could come in at right-back after sitting out.
We expect Northern Ireland to be stoic and competitive, but ultimately the superior quality of the Germans should win out. We recommend backing a narrow, low-scoring away win.
