The team arrives at this second day of Group F after a defeat in its opening in this group stage, against Mexico, by (0-1). In the last 10 matches played for all competitions, Germany won 4, drew 3 and lost 3. The team allowed goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for the opponent, so his defense needs to improve, but his attack has scored with regularity, as he scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches.

Germany was one of the big disappointments of the first day of the group stage, as well as Brazil, when losing to Mexico, by 0-1. In this way, it is mandatory that the Germans win a victory in this game against Sweden. On this day, the German team finds an opponent with few individual values and for this reason it is expected that coach Joachim Löw privileges the maintenance of possession of the ball and organized attacks: Özil is the great organizer of the offensive process. In addition, the midfielder of Arsenal exhibits enormous technical quality and auction. However, it is important to note that the defensive line has been the weakest point of the champion selection in title. There are no absences of weight for this game.
The team disputes its according party in Group F, after having won by (1-0) in its first match in this group stage, against the Republic of Korea. In the last 10 matches played for all competitions, the Sweden won 4, drew 3 and lost 3. The defense was strong and only suffered goals in 3 of the last 10 matches.

Sweden left for this motivated match, after having added a victory over South Korea, 1-0, in a game in which Granqvist scored the only goal, a penalty. A draw in this game against Germany would leave Sweden in a very comfortable position. On this second day, the coach Janne Andersson should enter the field at 4-4-2, favoring the low block and fast transitions for the attack, mainly through the left flank: Claesson is a very fast player in the counterattack. We emphasize the importance of Forsberg in the tactical scheme of the team, being this phenomenal player in the offensive process. In doubt for this game are Larsson and Lindelof, both injured.
