The next location on Die Mannschaft’s World Cup qualification roadshow is Wolfsburg, as Hansi Flick’s revitalised Germany side host Liechtenstein, with their place in Qatar already secured, and the visitors guaranteed to finish bottom.
Germany have won five from five since Flick took over, and even though they have been against much lower opposition, they have been ruthless in front of goal. Putting six past Armenia and four past both Iceland and North Macedonia shows they have come a long way from their embarrassing home defeat to the Macedonians in March.
Liechtenstein lost both their October qualifiers by four goals to nil and the only game they have avoided defeat in during 2021 saw them snatch a point in Armenia with just 26% of the ball, and 28 shots faced on their goal. Germany have scored 23 goals over this qualifying campaign, while Liechtenstein have conceded 23.
If the domination seen in the reverse fixture repeats itself, where Germany had 30 shots and 82% possession, expect them to improve on their 2-0 win in front of home support. Germany (-5) is EVENS.
