Match Preview

In this round of International Friendly, Germany will play against Latvia at home.Germany played a friendly during the week themselves, drawing 1-1 at home to Denmark on Wednesday.Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus scored only his second international goal to break the deadlock three minutes after half time, before RB Leipzig forward Yussuf Poulsen snatched a share of the spoils for the Danes 12 minutes from time.Joachim Low, who will depart the Germany dugout at the end of this summer's major tournament after 15 years in charge of the national team, will have been reasonably encouraged by his side's performance, having restricted Denmark to only one shot on target across the 90 minutes.The 61-year-old reintroduced Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller into his starting XI in a false nine role, with Muller's club teammates Leroy Sane and Serge Gnabry making penetrative runs beyond him. Low will hope to build on this formula with a convincing victory against the Latvians on Monday.Latvia coach Dainis Kazakevics pictured on March 27, 2021


Latvia once famously drew 0-0 against Germany at their only ever major tournament appearance during Euro 2004, but they have fallen a long way down the international pecking order since then.Led by Dainis Kazakevics, who coached Latvia's Under-21s between 2013 and 2020, 11 Vilki currently find themselves 138th in the FIFA rankings, with only six nations from UEFA ranking lower than them.However, after a 3-1 win against Lithuania on Friday, Kazakevics has the chance to secure a minor form of glory by beating Estonia on Thursday to retain the Baltic Cup. This would be Latvia's 14th triumph in the unofficial tournament in their history, which would put them four ahead of Lithuania.As such, Monday's friendly against Germany may be seen as a slight inconvenience, but a decent chance of testing themselves against one of Europe's strongest countries all the same.
