Before decisive Nations League clash against the Netherlands, Germany is all set to play friendly against world cup host Russia on 15th November in Leipzig. Germany need to win against the Netherlands to avoid relegation to league B and for that this friendly can be the good warm-up match.

Reus, who missed October's International clashes because of injury is back and looks like in a great form as of Bundesliga performances. Reus netted 8 goals and assisted for 4 in 11 matches of Bundesliga so far. I believe his presence in Germany squad will really make a difference that we want to see. Draxler will not feature in friendly but may play against the Netherlands in UNL clash. Defender Boateng also is not included in the squad but Werner, Sane and Muller are expected to feature. Russia will be without their world cup hero Cheryshev, Golivin and Dzagoev. Russia is unbeaten in last 4 matches after the world cup and they are leading the group in Nations League while Germany yet to find a winning way. After of series of disappointed performance, Germany is the last position of National League after losing 2 consecutive matches against France and Netherlands.

Russia is still unable to find a victory against Germany till date and despite worst performances in last games, Germany is still strong enough to beat Russia.
