THE TEAM NEWS

GERMANY

  • Germany will seal their place at EURO 2020 if they better Northern Ireland's result on Saturday night, and they have only lost one of their last 14 European qualifiers on home soil.
  • Coach Joachim Low again has a lengthy injury list to contend with, with key duo Kai Havertz and Marco Reus pulling out of the squad, although fellow midfielders Toni Kroos and Leon Goretzka return.
  • With Niklas Stark doubtful and Niklas Sule ruled out until the end of the season, Matthias Ginter is set to start at his home ground alongside Jonathan Tah in the centre of defence.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Neuer; Klostermann, Tah, Ginter, Schulz; Kroos, Gundogan, Kimmich; Brandt, Werner, Gnabry

Unavailable: Kehrer (Injured), Sane (Injured), Rudiger (Injured), Trapp (Injured), Sule (Injured), Havertz (Injured), Reus (Injured), Draxler (Injured), Halstenberg (Injured), Can (Suspended)

Doubtful: Stark (Injured)

BELARUS

  • Belarus can no longer qualify from the group having picked up just four points but they have qualified for the play-offs via the Nations League.
  • Ivan Bakhar, who started against Netherlands last month, is unavailable due to injury so Pavel Nekhajchik is expected to be recalled in attack.
  • Ivan Maevski was benched against Netherlands having started every other match in this campaign so he should be recalled, while Nikolai Zolotov could make his competitive debut at left-back.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Gutor; Polyakov, Martynovich, Naumov, Zolotov; Maevski, Yablonski; Nekhaychik, Dragun, Stasevich; Laptev

Unavailable: Savitski (Injured), Bakhar (Injured), Politevich (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Germany's defeat to Netherlands is the only blot on their record in this campaign, and they have scored at least two goals in every game. Die Mannschaft will want to wrap up qualification before their clash with Northern Ireland and with Werner and Gnabry in great form, they should win comfortably.
