Germany v Ghana: Match line ups

Published Add your comment

Germany will be looking to take ownership of Group G tonight as they take on Ghana.

Joachim Low's side dispatched Portugal 4-0 in their opening World Cup group game, and can move within touching distance of the knockout round with victory over the Black Stars.

Match Preview

Thomas Muller bagged a hat-trick against Cristiano Ronaldo and co, and one again he'll be the one to watch for the Germans. As for Ghana, they slipped to a disappointing 2-1 defeat to the USA in their first match, and need to get points on the board to keep their qualifications hopes alive.

That would set up a big clash with Portugal in the final round of fixtures.

Germany and Ghana have only met twice before, the Europeans winning on both occasions by a combined 7-1 aggregate score. In fact, Germany have only lost to an African side once in their World Cup history, and that was back in 1982.

Mats Hummels, a goalscorer against Portugal, picked up a thigh problem during the game and was a doubt to face the Ghanaians this evening but starts.

The teams are…


Neuer, Boateng, Hummels, Howedes, Mertesacker, Lahm, Kroos, Khedira, Ozil, Gotze, Muller


Dauda, Boye, Afful, Mensah, Atsu, Muntari, Boateng, Rabiu, Asamoah, Ayew, Gyan

Match prediction

Germany have too much quality for Ghana to handle. They'll make them work, Ghana rarely get blown out, but Low's side should run out comfortable winners. 2-0.
