Australia and Germany will be face to face in the last game of the group-stage first round at Confederation Cup, today from 16:00, UK Time.
Australia came here after a creal defeat against Brazil, 0-4 few days ago in a friendly match. That defeat ended their good run of eight consecutive matches without a loss (W4 - D4). The Australians are inferior from many points of view, without a shadow of doubt. Jedinak seems to be the only missing player for the hosts here. The last meeting with Germany was a friendly in March 2015, ended with a draw, 2-2.
On the other hand, Germany faced San Marino in the previous match, winning 7-0 in the World Cup 2018 Qualifiers. The Germans will not field their best XI at Confederation Cup, but even so, they are superior here. According to reporst, both teams will use three centre back and Joachim Low is going to use Suler, Mustafi and Rudiger in the defensive line, with Kimmich and Hector on the wings.
Australia vs Germany probable lineups:
Australia (3-4-2-1): Ryan - McGowan, Sainsbury, Degenek - Leckie, Mooy, Smith - Rogic, Kruse - Juric.
Germany (3-4-1-2): Stegen - Sule, Mustafi, Rudiger - Kimmich, Goretzka, Can, Hector - Draxler - Stindl, Wagner.
