Belarus vs Germany | Euro Cup Qualification

Germany look for their second win in Group C of Euro 2020 qualifying when they travel to Borisov to face Belarus on Saturday night.

Joachim Low's side overcame the Netherlands 3-2 in dramatic fashion in their opening game and are overwhelming favourites to claim three points against lowly opposition.

Team news
The 2014 World Cup winners are without Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos and Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who were both left out of the squad because of injury.

Belarus are without former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder Alexander Hleb, with the 38-year-old ruled out for the visit of Germany. 

There is no doubt that Germany are in a transitional period, with the early exit from last summer's World Cup followed by their relegation from League A in the UEFA Nations League still playing on the mind of Low.

Nevertheless, they should be far too strong against the side ranked 81st in the world and Saturday's game should be all about the margin of victory for the visitors.

Certainly up front Germany have plenty of firepower with Timo Werner, Marco Reus and Leroy Sane all capable of causing their opponents some serious problems.

Low's men have netted in each of their last five matches, racking up 10 goals in the process, and that scoring record should continue on Saturday night.
