THE TEAM NEWS
- Estonia recorded their first point of the campaign with a 0-0 draw in Belarus on Thursday, which ended a run of eight consecutive defeats in European Championship qualifying.
- Centre-back Joonas Tamm is available again having been suspended for Thursday's game but coach Martin Reim may keep faith with the same back four after their first competitive clean sheet since November.
- Youngster Vladislav Kreida will be hoping to keep his place after being handed his full debut against Belarus, while veteran Konstantin Vassiljev was recalled to the side.
Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Lepmets; Teniste, Mets, Baranov, Kallaste; Kait, Kreida; Zenjov, Vassiljev, Ojamaa; Sorga
Unavailable: Klavan (Injured)
- Germany are one of three teams tied on 12 points at the top of Group C so they need to make sure they get the job done and get the three points here.
- Coach Joachim Low experimented with a back three in Wednesday's friendly against Argentina but he is expected to revert to a more familiar system given the number of defenders he is missing.
- Centre-back Niklas Stark has been ruled out after missing the Argentina game so Robin Koch is set to partner Niklas Sule again, while Manuel Neuer, Ilkay Gundogan and Marco Reus should start after being rested on Wednesday.
Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Neuer; Klostermann, Koch, Sule, Halstenberg; Gundogan, Kimmich, Havertz; Reus, Gnabry, Brandt
Unavailable: Kehrer (Injured), Sane (Injured), Rudiger (Injured), Schulz (Injured), Ginter (Injured), Stark (Injured), Kroos (Injured), Goretzka (Injured), Hector (Injured)
Doubtful: Werner (Illness), Tah (Illness)
Germany thrashed Estonia 8-0 in their last meeting but given the number of key players who Low is without, it is unlikely to be as easy for Die Mannschaft on this occasion. Nevertheless, they should not have too many problems against a team who have found the net just twice in this campaign.
