Germany host Scotland in Dortmund this evening, with both nations looking to get their qualifying campaigns for Euro 2016 in France off to the best possible start.
The World champions were surprisingly beaten 4-2 by Argentina in Dusseldorf last week, but are likely to shake off any hangover from that for a game against a Scotland outfit that they will expect to beat.
Manager Joachim Low does have some concerns in attack, however, where the recalled Mario Gomez missed a number of chances in Dusseldorf and Marco Reus has only just returned from injury as Low reshuffles following the retirement of Miroslav Klose.
He will also be without defenders Phillip Lahm and Per Mertesacker, who have also thrown in the international towel, but is likely to feel that he has enough to see off Scotland.
Gordon Strachan, meanwhile, will expect his Scotland side to have enough to challenge for qualification to an expanded Euro 2016 tournament, but any points taken in Dortmund will be seen as a bonus.
Captain Darren Fletcher will anchor the team in central midfield, whilst in-form Everton attacking midfielder Steven Naismith may well be the visitors’ biggest goal threat on the counter.
