Now, Germany are already being considered as early favorites for Euro 2016. They have a frighteningly good line-up, and on their day can be unbeatable. However, they haven’t been performing well of late, and in the run-up to the tournament have lost games to rivals like England.
With the pressure being on Germany to win this game, the Ukraine can approach this in a more relaxed way. They have nothing to lose, but will surely play the match on the counter-attack, hoping to catch Germany pushing too many forward and exploit their backline that way.
There’s a lot of talent to look out for on both teams, Germany boasts Thomas Muller and Mario Gotze, while Ukraine has Andriy Yarmolenko. The forward is capable of turning any game on its head, so the Germans will have their work cut out.
One big blow for Germany’s defense is the absence of Mats Hummels. He’s their star defender, but is struggling to make the opening game because of injury.
With the Germans being the team to beat this year, although stuttering a little of late, it’s hard to look past them winning this one. When major competitions start, they ALWAYS seem to turn it on.
