The USA will continue their preparations ahead of the quarterfinals of the Nations League this weekend, as they come up against one of the best teams in Europe. They should come into this match in excellent confidence, as they have gone two without a defeat following a shock loss in the Gold Cup semi-finals against Panama.
In the latest international break, the USA won each of their two matches against Uzbekistan and Oman, scoring seven goals in the process and failing to concede. Their latest win was a 4-0 home success against Oman, with Folarin Balogun, Brenden Aaronson, and Ricardo Pepi all finding the net.
Germany are under 12 months away from hosting the EUROs, but things have been challenging on the pitch. A run of defeats saw Hansi Flick’s reign as manager come to an end, with Julian Nagelsmann tasked with overturning their fortunes before the major tournament in 2024.
A poor run of results was ended in the previous international break, as they bounced back from a shock 4-1 loss against Japan by landing a 2-1 victory over France. That was the response that they would have been hoping for, with Thomas Muller and Leroy Sane scoring the goals against the former world champions in Dortmund.
USA vs Germany Prediction
The USA have been in fine recent form, but this is a clear step up in opposition this weekend. Therefore, we will be siding with Germany landing victory on American soil to get the Nagelsmann reign off to the perfect start.
