After an abysmal performance will Germany get points tonight?

Die Mannschaft slipped to a surprising 1-0 defeat against Mexico in their World Cup opener, and another defeat against the Scandinavians on Saturday would see the holders eliminated from the competition.

Reigning champions Germany are actually in pretty average form, having won just one of their last six matches.

Sweden, on the other hand, got their World Cup campaign off to the perfect start with a 1-0 victory against South Korea. The Blågult looked far from convincing but Andreas Granqvist’s 65th minute penalty was enough to secure them all three points.

Sweden will take heart from their opponents misfortunes, and will no doubt come into this clash with an elevated level of belief. They have only won once in their last six clashes however, with their opening group game win over South Korea only decided via the penalty spot.

The two sides have met on 22 different occasions and Germany boast the better record with ten wins compared to Sweden’s eight.

One of the most memorable encounters between the two nations dates back to 2012, when they were both vying for World Cup qualification.
