One of international football’s greatest rivalries will enter its next chapter on Friday night when Germany host bitter rivals Netherlands at the Volksparkstadion in Hamburg.
The two footballing giants both trail Northern Ireland in the Group C standings of Euro 2020 qualification, although they also boast games in hand and Germany would claim top spot with victory in this match.
The reverse fixture between these two sides marked a welcome return to form for Germany following a disappointing Nations League campaign and disastrous 2018 World Cup.
Germany currently sit second in Group C with nine points, six points ahead of third-placed Holland – although the Dutch have a game in hand having only played two matches so far.
The Netherlands have only played two qualifiers so far after reaching the final of the inaugural UEFA Nations League in Portugal. However, they are six points off opponents Germany after that late defeat at home in March. The Dutch are led by centre-back Virgil van Dijk, who was recently named the UEFA Men’s Player of the Year for 2018/19 and was part of the Liverpool squad that beat a Bayern side featuring five current Germany players on their way to lifting the UEFA Champions League.
