Germany vs Greece: Preview, predictions and lineups

Antonio Rudiger, Toni Kroos

The second of Germany’s two warm-up matches ahead of Euro 2024 takes place on Friday as Julian Nagelsmann’s side face Greece in Monchengladbach.

Die Mannschaft’s preparations for the upcoming summer tournament began with a stalemate against Ukraine on Monday. The three-time European champions were left frustrated by a fine performance between the sticks from Anatoliy Trubin, although there was enough on display in Nuremberg to suggest the hosts will be a team to keep an eye on in the summer.

Nagelsmann still has the likes of Antonio Rudiger and Toni Kroos to welcome back into the fold, too.

The Germans will want to produce a more convincing final third display on Friday with the start of Euro 2024 just a week out by the time they kick-off against Greece. The hosts face Scotland in the tournament’s curtain-raiser on 14 June.

Greece came ever so close to qualifying for the Euros but succumbed to newbies Georgia on penalties in their play-off final. The 2004 champions won’t be in action this summer but have nonetheless shown signs of progress over the past couple of years under Gus Poyet. They’ll be a formidable test for the Germans on Friday.

Here’s 90min’s preview of Germany’s pre-Euro 2024 friendly.

Nagelsmann used 16 players against Ukraine on Monday and the German boss should hand opportunities to several other members of his provisional squad in Monchengladbach.

David Raum and Benjamin Henrichs are among the players who could earn starts on Friday.

Germany predicted lineup vs Greece (4-2-3-1): Ter Stegen; Henrichs, Rudiger, Schlotterback, Raum; Kroos, Gundogan; Sane, Muller, Wirtz; Beier.
