Germany and Ukraine will face each other in UEFA Nations League this weekend. The Group A4 game at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig is slated to kick off at 7:45pm on Saturday and could prove to be a cracking game.

Germany

Germany are second in Group A with six points from four matches, a point behind leaders Spain and level on points with third-placed Ukraine. Joachim Low’s side will head into the match against Ukraine on the back of a 1-0 victory over the Czech Republic in a friendly international on Wednesday evening. Luca Waldschmid scored the only goal of the match.

Die Mannschaft played out a 3-3 draw with Switzerland at home in their last UEFA Nations League Group A4 match last month. Germany will take on Spain on Tuesday evening, and the four-time world champions will be determined to face La Roja on the back of a win.

Team news:

Manuel Neuer, Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane and Leon Goretzka were rested for the match against the Czech Republic and are likely to return for the game against Ukraine on Saturday. Niklas Sule is also back in contention, but Jonas Hofmann injured his thigh against the Czech Republic and is on the sidelines.

Ukraine

Ukraine are doing quite well in the UEFA Nations League and find themselves third in Group A4 with six points from four matches. Andriy Shevchenko’s side, though, suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Poland away from home in a friendly international on Wednesday evening.

However, in their last UEFA Nations League last month, Ukraine edged past Spain 1-0 at home. Viktor Tsygankov’s goal in the 76th minute proved to be the difference between the two sides. For Ukraine to maintain a realistic chances of winning the UEFA Nations League group, they have to pick up all three points against Germany on Saturday.

Team news:

Oleksandr Zinchenko is likely to start in central midfield for Ukraine against Germany.
