The Packers have beaten the Seahawks each of the last three years since Seattle’s win in the 2014 NFC Championship Game. In that run, Green Bay has nine takeaways as opposed to two turnovers.  Also, the Seahawks have lost five of their last seven home games, including two straight. The Seahawks haven’t lost three in a row at home since dropping five between Oct. 12-Dec. 7, 2008. However, Green Bay has lost six straight on the road – the team’s worst run since Dec. 2, 1990-Sep. 29, 1991

Coming off a loss to the New England Patriots, the Packers enjoyed a relatively stress-free 31-12 win over the Miami Dolphins this past Sunday. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 19-of-28 passes for 199 yards and two touchdown passes. The Packers were also helped by running back Aaron Jones, who rushed for 145 yards and two touchdowns in the win. He is just the fifth different Packer with 145-plus rushing yards and two-plus rushing touchdowns in a game.

Meanwhile, the Seahawks dropped their second consecutive game in a 36-31 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. However, Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny rushed for a career-high 108 yards and a touchdown in the loss. Only three Seattle rookies have had a better performance on the ground than Penny. Overall, Seattle’s rush game has been a strength as the Seahawks are averaging 152.2 rushing yards per game this season, best in the league. In 2017, they averaged just 101.8 yards per game, tenth worst in the NFL.

In addition to winning the last three meetings, the Packers own the all-time series advantage at 11-7.

Just like every other team that faces him, the Seahawks will have to contain Aaron Rodgers the best they can. He passed for 311 yards in their last meeting and has 10 pass touchdowns with just two interceptions for a 101.5 rating in seven career starts against the Seahawks.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is coming off a solid performance in Week 10, passing for three touchdowns and posting 92 rushing yards. In two meetings against the Packers at CenturyLink Field, Wilson has four touchdowns and zero interceptions. He also has performed well on Thursdays, going 6-0 with 12 touchdowns and three interceptions.

The Packers lost their ninth fumble of the season last week – tied for second-most in the league this season. That could be one way the Seahawks can neutralize Green Bay and secure a win.

Seattle wide receiver Tyler Lockett caught his seventh touchdown pass of the season, setting a career high. He is now tied for fifth in the league in touchdown receptions this season. He also has caught touchdown passes in two of his three career Thursday night contests.

Green Bay receiver Davante Adams caught two touchdown passes against Miami last Sunday. It was his second two-touchdown performance of the season, and only one player in the NFL has more such games this year.

Packers vs. Seahawks betting odds

The Packers are favored by 10 on the road. The over/under is 49.

Thursday Night football 2018

Thursday Night football 2018 : We’ve hit the double digit mark of the NFL regular season and fantasy football leagues are getting near the end. Who should you start and sit this week?

Thursday Night football 2018 Live Tonight

Fantasy football is nearing the stretch and at this point, it’s likely that you’re well aware of what your team is. Playoffs will be starting up in some leagues next month, but until then, we have to keep on keepin’ on.

Before we dive into this week’s Start ‘Em and Sit ‘Em candidates, let’s take a look back at my best advice and my worst advice from last week.

GOOD ADVICE: STARTING O.J. HOWARD AND SITTING LOS ANGELES’ DEFENSE

O.J. Howard has established himself as a TE1 option week in and week out. He crushed it this past week, putting up 21.3 points in ESPN leagues, as Tampa fell to the Panthers. Hopefully you listened to me when it came to sitting the Rams defense, as they actually notched a negative spot this week. LA’s defense had -6 points in ESPN leagues.

BAD ADVICE: STARTING JOE FLACCO AND SITTING BEN ROETHLISBERGER

I should have flipped my quarterbacks from last week and I’d have been good here! Joe Flacco wasn’t good against the Steelers, putting 8.2 points. On the other side of the field, Ben Roethlisberger looked like the same ol’ Big Ben of yesteryear. He had 25.2 points in a big win over the Ravens.

How will I fare this week? Let’s take a look at my Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em candidates for week ten of fantasy football!

Seahawks vs Packers

Seahawks vs Packers : This week’s edition of Thursday Night Football features two teams that are not necessarily where they want to be at this point of the season, but could potentially use this game as a springboard to get there. It helps that when the Seattle Seahawksand Green Bay Packers do battle in primetime, something weird usually happens.

While the odds of something exactly like that ever happening again are fairly low, that doesn’t mean we can’t get an entertaining game between two solid teams each quarterbacked by one of the best and most exciting players in the league. Here’s what to look out for as Green Bay visits Seattle (8:20 p.m., NFL Network, stream on fuboTV).

Seahawks vs Packers Live

You’ve likely heard this stat somewhere else already, but it bears mentioning again simply because it is so unusual in 2018: the Seahawks run the ball more often than they pass it. In a league where 60 percent of plays are passes, the Seahawks call for a pass only 49 percent of the time, making them the only team in the league with a negative pass-to-run ratio. (The Packers, by the way, are at the complete opposite end of the spectrum. They call pass 66 percent of the time, second in the NFL behind only the Giants, who aren’t really calling passes because they want to, but because they’re terrible.)

The rushing attack is now looking like a three-man committee in the backfield, with starter Chris Carson potentially on track to return, backup Mike Davis still running well, and first-round pick Rashaad Penny finally breaking out with a 108-yard game last week. Carson has looked like the most effective player for the balance of the season, but he has also proven to be extremely injury prone during his two NFL seasons, appearing in only 11 of 25 possible games. Still, he’s averaging 4.5 yards per carry and has been the lead back whenever healthy. Davis has largely operated as Carson’s partner in a timeshare, averaging 4.4 yards per carry and exhibiting ease and smoothness catching the ball out of the backfield. Penny was largely a disaster right up until last week, when he took 12 carries for 108 yards against the Rams. That one performance raised his yards per carry average from 3.5 to 4.7 for the season.

All three will presumably see work against the Packers, who have not exactly showered themselves in glory when defending the run this season. Green Bay is allowing 4.7 yards per carry, 22nd in the NFL this season. They’re ranked 26th in Football Outsiders’ rush defense DVOA, 30th in Adjusted Line Yards (which assigns credit to offensive lines as a percentage of yards gained per rush attempt), and 31st in percentage of opponent runs stopped in the backfield. Seattle’s offensive line has been far better this year than in recent seasons and should be able to pave some road for these guys to do their work. Add in the attention that perimeter defenders have to pay to Russell Wilson in Seattle’s read-option concepts, and there’s a lot of potential for the backs to make hay.

Which teams should you back in Week 11 of the NFL season? And which Super Bowl contender gets a huge scare? Visit SportsLine now to see which teams are winning more than 50 percent of simulations, all from the model that has outperformed 98 percent of experts tracked by NFLPickWatch.com the past two seasons.

Wilson, by the way, has gone from being one of the more pass-heavy quarterbacks in the NFL last year to being on pace to attempt his fewest throws in a season (439) since his second year in the league. He’s made up for his lack of volume with terrific efficiency, completing 66 percent of his passes and averaging 8.0 yards per attempt, while throwing a touchdown pass on a career-best 8.5 percent of his passes. Among qualified passers, only Patrick Mahomes’ throws have turned into touchdowns more often than Wilson’s.

Now that they’re all healthy, Wilson has a nice mix of targets to throw to. The combination of Doug Baldwin in the slot, Tyler Lockett on the outside, and David Moore working intermediate areas and the red zone has worked extremely well for the Seahawks, and tight end Nick Vannett has flashed some ability as well. Baldwin will presumably work against Bashaud Breeland in the slot, while Lockett and Moore will do battle with rookies Josh Jackson and Jaire Alexander. Green Bay’s pass defense overall has essentially been slightly above average in every area this season, but Alexander has emerged as the secondary’s best perimeter player and throws over the middle have given them the most trouble. That sets things up very nicely for Baldwin, who is Wilson’s most trusted target in a vacuum anyway.

As mentioned above, the Packers run the ball less often than only one team: the Giants. But in recent weeks, their running game has been much improved thanks to the fact that they have finally, mercifully, at long last handed over the reins to the talented Aaron Jones, who has been very obviously their best back since last season and for some reason was stuck working behind both Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery for much of this year.

The Packers traded Montgomery at the deadline and finally reduced Williams to mostly pass-protection work, and Jones has looked positively electric. Over his past three games, he’s carried 41 times for 306 yards (7.5 per carry) and three touchdowns. He’s the second running back ever to average at least 5.0 yards per carry in seven of his team’s first nine games while also receiving five-plus carries in each game. The other guy is some dude named Jim Brown, who did it twice.

Seattle’s run defense ranks 23rd in DVOA this season and the Seahawks have allowed an incredible 5.0 yards per carry, so there should be plenty of room for Jones to do his work against this front. The only question is whether the Packers will stick with the run or lean on the right shoulder of Aaron Rodgers to do the majority of the work. Knowing their history we’d lean toward the latter, but crazier things have happened.

Rodgers will once again be throwing to a depleted wide receiver corps, as both Geronimo Allison and Randall Cobb will miss the game. Rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown, and J’Mon Moore will pick up the slack, with MVS getting most of the snaps in the slot, St. Brown working on the outside opposite Davante Adams, and Moore largely getting fill-in snaps to give the other guys a breather.

Adams is in the midst of his best season as a pro, averaging 6.9 catches, 87.4 yards, and a touchdown per game. He’s on track for a season-long line of 110-1,400-16. That has been accomplished exactly once in the history of football, by Randy Moss back in 2003. Rodgers clearly trusts him as much as he has ever trusted any receiver, firing him the ball more than 10 times per game and repeatedly giving him chances to come down with the ball in tight windows — especially in the red zone, where Adams has emerged as his clear preferred option. He’ll work against Tre Flowers and Shaquill Griffin depending on where he lines up, but he should have the advantage all night either way. (This is especially true against Flowers, who has allowed a 106.0 passer rating on throws in his direction this season, per Sports Info Solutions. That ranks 149th out of 200 players who have been targeted in coverage at least 10 times.)

Valdes-Scantling has emerged as the Packers’ No. 2 receiver over the past few weeks, but he works primarily out of the slot when Cobb is out and Seahawks slot man Justin Coleman has been solid throughout the season. (The Seahawks also used him as a blitzer last week in order to frustrate the Rams, and it would not be a surprise to see them do the same against Rodgers on Thursday evening.) Tight end Jimmy Graham provides a strong option over the middle and in the red zone — if he suits up. He’s been banged up and limited in practice, and there are questions about whether he’ll be able to get on the field.

Thursday night Football

Thursday night Football : The Green Bay Packers finally got the breakout game they have been waiting for from running back Aaron Jones and that’s terrible news for opposing defenses. Jones tore up the Dolphins defense last week to the tune of 145 yards rushing and two touchdowns in a 31-12 dismantling at Lambeau last Sunday. And Jones will be out for an encore in Seattle.

Thursday night Football Live 2018 Stream

If he can get going on the ground early against the Seahawks 17th ranked rush defense it will allow Aaron Rodgers and the Packers passing game to go to work and that’s when they’re at their best. Additionally, the Packers secondary has been strong all season, currently ranking fifth in the NFL in passing yards allowed and will give an inconsistent Seattle offense some problems at least early on. Look for Green Bay to establish the run early to open up the pass and score the game’s first major.

There is no question that Century Link is an incredibly tough place to play for visitors and both defenses have exceeded expectations this season. This is also a prime-time spot and the “12s” will certainly make things tough on Rodgers and the Packers offense.

However, the first half prop for the Pack is incredibly low as it is sitting at 10.5-points and we’re getting plus money on the Over. Green Bay, as mentioned, should have success early in the game thanks to the run game and if the Packers can manage an early score than they should sail over their first half total, perhaps even in the first quarter. Take Green Bay to have more than 10-points after 30 minutes.

Seattle is expected to have Chris Carson back in the lineup on Thursday night, but the emergence of rookie Rashaad Penny has threatened touches for the former after a breakout effort last weekend. However, it looks like Seattle head coach Pete Carroll is going to give the reins right back to Carson and with the league’s second best rushing attack queued up for a big night look for Carson to be at the forefront of that success. His value to score a touchdown at any time is sitting at plus money right now ranking him just behind Davante Adams and Jones. That makes him the oddsmakers favorite candidate to score for Seattle. We’re buying into a Carson score in this spot.

The number in this one is starting to shrink after opening at 49.5-points, having since moved down to 48.5. The Over is 3-1-1 in their last five meetings in Seattle, but the movement here seems to ask more questions than it answers. There’s no question the Packers have a lethal offense, but if they’re adding more running plays into their game plan it could very well limit the point production on the scoreboard.

Meanwhile, the Seahawks have been playing exceptional defense and will also rely on the run game in an effort keep Rodgers and company off the field for as long as possible. The Packers have gone Over in their last six road games against a team with a losing home record while the Seahawks have gone Under in four straight Thursday nighters. The number seems to be a little too steep as defense and running the football will be key here. In the end the total in this one should come in around the 46-point mark.

The Packers have yet to win on the road this season, but they can sense their playoff hopes hanging in the balance on a short week in Seattle. But they won’t be the only ones feeling that way in this one as the Seahawks will also be playing desperate football.

In win in this matchup is a must if the Seahawks have any dreams of an NFC wild card spot. Green Bay has covered in four consecutive matchups with the Seahawks, though it’s the home team that is 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings, which certainly means good things for Seattle. However, the Packers are 4-1 ATS in their last five games on Thursday night and are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 following a solid rushing performance of over 150 yards. Look for Green Bay to keep this one close at the very least.

On the other side of the ball, Seattle is 4-5, but plays five of its final seven games in its deafening stadium. Seattle is just 1-2 at home, while the Packers are 0-4 on the road. The line held steady at Seattle -2.5 throughout the week, but stands at -3 in the latest Seahawks vs. Packers odds. The Over-Under, which opened at 49.5, has dropped to 48. Before you make any Seahawks vs. Packers picks, check out what the SportsLine Projection Model has to say.

In a straight-up, pick’em format, their proprietary computer model went 176-80 last season and beat over 95 percent of CBS Office Pool players in 2016 and ’17, performing better than 98 percent of experts tracked by NFLPickWatch.com during that span. Additionally, it went 48-34 on all A-rated picks last season, and $100 bettors who followed it the past two seasons are up nearly $4,000.

The model has continued to nail its top-rated picks in 2018, entering Week 11 on a blistering 10-0 run. For the season, it is now 24-9 on all top-rated picks, extending its two-year run to a strong 72-43. And when it comes to all straight-up picks, the model is 98-48 this season, again ranking in the top 15 on NFLPickWatch.com. Anybody who has been following it is way, way up.

Now the model has dialed in on Packers vs. Seahawks. We can tell you it’s leaning over, but the model also says there’s plenty of value on one side of the spread. You can only see it at SportsLine.

The model has factored in that the Packers’ receiving corps has played extremely well, boosting the team to seventh in total offense at 403.2 yards per game. Led by his 787 receiving yards, Davante Adams (nine TDs) has been the recipient of more than half of Aaron Rodgers’ 17 TD tosses this season. While secondaries double-team Adams, rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling is stretching the field, picking up 17.5 yards per catch.

Running back Aaron Jones has also given Green Bay an extra dimension on the ground. He’s had double-digit carries his last three games and parlayed them into over 300 yards rushing and three touchdowns. He’s also added seven catches over that span. Jones has become a workhorse, taking pressure off Rodgers and the passing game.

But just because the Packers are balanced doesn’t mean they’ll cover on “Thursday Night Football,” especially at CenturyLink Field.

The Seahawks are itching to snap a two-game skid in just their fourth home game of the season. Despite a brutal early schedule that featured the Rams (twice), Chargers, and Bears, a win pushes them back to 5-5 in a crowded wild-card race.

Russell Wilson continues to make incredible plays while the pocket collapses around him. In four of his previous five games, he has thrown three touchdown passes. For the season, he has tossed at least two scores in all but one game while completing 66 percent of his attempts.

Rookie running back Rashaad Penny erupted last week against the Rams while Chris Carson (hip) sat out. Notching his first 100-yard game, Penny finished with 108 yards on only 12 carries. Carson should return on “Thursday Night Football,” giving Seattle another weapon.

Spain vs Croatia

Spain vs Croatia : Spain travel to Croatia to play their final UEFA Nations League group game, with both sides having a lot to play for. A win would secure qualification for Spain, whilst a win for Croatia would mean they have a chance to secure qualification when they played England on Sunday.

Croatia are without left backs Marin Leovac and Borna Sosa, with Josip Pivaric doubtful so Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic will have to improvise at left back.

Borna Barisic and Ivan Strinic are also out though injury. However, Sime Vrsaljko is back fit and in the squad and may play a part. Mario Mandzukic, Danijel Subasic and Vedran Corluka have retired from international football following the World Cup, so Ante Rebic is likely to start up front and goalkeeper Lovre Kalinic will likely replace Subasic.

Spain welcome back Jordi Alba to the squad as he looks set to start at left back but fellow wing-back Dani Carvajal is missing through injury.

Atletico Madrid’s Koke and Diego Costa are missing through injury as is midfielder Thiago Alcantara. Sergio Ramos will likely partner Inigo Martinez, as Nacho is also out injured.

In their previous UEFA Nations League meeting just over a month ago Spain shocked the World Cup finalists winning 6-0 and Croatia will be looking for revenge at home. Not yet eliminated from potential Nations League semi final qualification, Croatia have plenty to play for.

Croatia are winless in the UEFA #NationsLeague, but they can still change their post-World Cup narrative when they host Spain in their final match of the tournament. #CROESP

The countries have played seven games over their history, only three of which have come in competitive fixtures with Spain winning two, and Croatia winning one. Spain’s friendly record slightly surpasses Croatia’s too, with two wins and a draw.

Croatia’s form has taken a slight turn for the worse since their remarkable World Cup run. The side have lost one and drawn one of their Nations League fixtures so far, with two friendly results against Jordan and Portugal resulting in a win and a draw.

Spain, on the other hand, had a relatively poor World Cup by their high standards, but bounced back with their thrashing of Croatia. They also won away against both England and Wales. However, the home side were beaten at home by England, which may have dented their confidence slightly.

Here’s how each team has performed in their last five fixtures:

Croatia’s form has been wavering of late, but they have ato play for and owe their fans a performance after their shock defeat just over a month ago. Spain only need a point to have a chance of qualification but a win would seal it

Both sides are missing some key defensive players, and also have relatively young and untested attacks. It will likely be a battle of the midfield masters, with both sides exceptionally well matched.

Match Preview

The decision to bring Rooney out of international retirement for a farewell game has brought plenty of debate. The former captain has shared his view ahead of the game:

Manager Gareth Southgate has confirmed Rooney will captain the side and wear the No. 10 shirt when he comes on:

Rooney’s appearance will also see him reach another landmark in his career:

The 33-year-old completed his move to Major League Soccer from Everton in June. He’s been a big hit for D.C. United, scoring 12 goals and contributing six assists in 21 appearances.

England will also use the game to give some talented youngsters some international experience. Borussia Dortmund’s 18-year-old winger Jadon Sancho is set to make his first start for his country, per Sky Sports News.

Football journalist Oliver Young-Myles highlighted just how impressive Sancho has been in the Bundesliga this season:

So well have Roberto Martinez’s side performed, they have climbed to the summit of the FIFA Rankings, reaching that pinnacle in September for just the second time in the nation’s history.

While Belgian football is on a high, the Iceland star which shone so brightly for a couple of years finds itself in danger of flickering out. They have won only once in the calendar year but are seeking to reprise the type of form that saw them reach the World Cup in order to bow out of the top tier of the Nations League on a high.

Midfielders Aholou, N’Doram, Rony Lopes, Tielemans, Ait-Bennasser, Golovin, Chadli, Grandsir, Diop, Traore
Forwards Falcao, Jovetic, Mboula, Pellegri, Diop, Sylla

Roberto Martinez has a number of selection issues to juggle, with centre-backs Thomas Vermaelen and Jan Vertonghen both missing out due to injuries. In the midfield, meanwhile, Kevin De Bruyne is absent along with Mousa Dembele, while Crystal Palace forward Christian Benteke will have no role to play.

Marouane Fellaini, meanwhile, has not been called-up as the coach feels he would benefit from a chance to rest with Manchester United after sustaining a problem against Juventus.

Romelu Lukaku, meanwhile, is a doubt.

Possible Belgium starting XI: Courtois; Denayer, Kompany, Alderweireld; Meunier, Tielemans, Witsel, Carrasco; Hazard, Mertens; Lukaku

In defence, Holmar Eyjolfsson is sidelined, while midfielders Emil Hallfredsson and Johann Gudmundsson, two of Iceland’s most experienced performers, are missing because of injury. Runar Sigurjonsson is also out.

Arnor Sigurdsson could be one of the benefactors, the 19-year-old CSKA Moscow player hopeful of making his international bow. Equally, Jon Dahur Thorsteinsson of Danish side Vendsyssel has received a call-up for the first time.

Possible Iceland starting XI: Halldorsson; Saevarsson, Arnason, Sigurdsson, Magnusson; Bjarnason, Fridjonsson, J. Gudmundsson, G. Sigurdsson, Traustason; Finnbogasson

Rumours that Belgium head coach Roberto Martinez could be Real Madrid bound offer testimony to just what has been achieved at national team level over the course of 2018.

Many felt that they were unfortunate not to win the World Cup, coming unstuck against a pragmatic France side at the semi-final stage, and those who believe that they are the best side in world need only look at the FIFA Rankings for justification.

Since their third-place finish in Russia, the Red Devils have shown no relent in their form and, if anything, have improved.

Following an impressive friendly victory in Scotland, they went to Iceland and were resounding 3-0 winners before building on that by overcoming Switzerland last month.

The arsenal of attacking potential at the disposal of Martinez is formidable, with Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku leading the way. Indeed, the Manchester United forward has bagged doubles in both of Belgium’s Nations League fixtures to date and has five goals in his last three internationals.

Strangely, this encounter is something of a dead rubber. Iceland are already relegated, having lost their opening three fixtures, while Belgium’s finishing position in Group Two is entirely dependent upon their result with Switzerland as the crucial tiebreaker between the two sides will be head-to-head record.

Having won 2-1 against the Swiss previously, Martinez’s men stand in good stead to qualify, but could be forgiven if they do not approach this game at full throttle as a consequence.

Iceland, meanwhile, are simply seeking to regain some face after a turgid year. Qualification for the World Cup was a monumental achievement, but since beating Kosovo 2-0 in October 2017 to seal their place in Russia, they have only one win in 14 internationals – and that was against Indonesia in a match not recognised by FIFA.

There have been glimpses of the brilliance that allowed them to reach such unanticipated heights – a 1-1 World Cup draw with Argentina and a 2-2 draw with France away in October are two examples – and that is what Erik Hamren’s side are aiming for here

Russia vs Germany

Russia vs Germany : Germany find themselves going into 2018’s final two fixtures in damage limitation mode. After flopping at the World Cup, Joachim Low’s side have set an unwanted national record for defeats in a calendar year and tackle Russia on Thursday before facing the Netherlands in the UEFA Nations League on Monday.

By the time they meet the Dutch, they could be in the embarrassing position of having already been relegated from the top tier of European clubs, having earned just a single point from their first three fixtures.

Russia could be one of the teams to replace them in League A, having built on an impressive World Cup thanks to wins over Turkey and Sweden, plus a home draw with the latter.

This friendly gives them the opportunity to show that they really belong.

Marco Reus is back in the Germany squad after missing last month’s matches due to a knee problem, although he is something of a doubt after failed to train on Tuesday. Antonio Rudiger, Kai Havertz and Leon Goretzka are also back in Joachim Low’s panel.

Toni Kroos will only join the squad after the Russia fixture, while Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen has been allowed to sit out because of ongoing shoulder complaints. Julian Draxler is on compassionate leave.

Jerome Boateng, meanwhile, has been left out of the squad by technical decision.

Russia saw a raft of players retire following the World Cup in the summer, including Yuri Zhirkov, Sergei Ignashevich and Igor Akinfeev.

A more immediate issue is the number of injuries that they are carrying. Mario Fernandes, Ilya Kutepov, Viktor Vasin, Denis Cheryshev, Artem Dzyuba, Aleksandr Kokorin and star man Aleksandr Golovin are all missing because of physical problems, leaving Stanislav Cherchesov with a severely depleted panel.

Sergey Petrov and Roman Zobnin have both been carrying thigh injuries of late, too.

Krasnodar forward Ari has received a first call to the squad.

Possible Russia starting XI: Marinato; Petrov, Neustadter, Dzhikiya, Kudryashov; Gazinsky, Zobnin; Ionov, Kuzyaev, Erokhi; Ari

This has been a year that the Germany international side will want to put behind them quickly. Dumped out of the World Cup at the group stage, having suffered shock losses to Mexico and South Korea, the rebuilding process will not be a quick one.

Indeed, Joachim Low’s side are faced with Nations League relegation, having picked up only one point from their three matches to date. October’s loss to France was their sixth of the year – the highest that the Germany national side has ever suffered.

The long-time national team coach, while coming under pressure, is still looking to the future, however. Euro 2020 remains the ultimate goal.

“Our view goes beyond the borders of the Nations League,” he told the DFB’s official website. “The 2020 European Championship is the next big goal. Until then, we want to have a powerful team on the field again.”

While there is clearly a desire to put 2018 behind them, Low is demanding that his young squad give a strong account of themselves against Russia and the Netherlands, having turned in what he felt was an encouraging display in losing 2-1 to France last month.

“I expect that after a bad year, we’ll say goodbye to our fans with two good games,” he said. “We want to show the qualities that distinguished up for years.”

While the Germans have been lamentable, Russia have been steadily building.

Three defeats to begin the year suggested they would toil under the spotlight at the World Cup, but instead they impressed as they made it to the quarter-finals, where they were eliminated only after a penalty shootout against eventual champions Croatia.

And they have used that as a building block for further success, chalking up three wins and a draw in their four post-tournament matches, albeit against weaker opponents than Germany.

Ahead of the match in Leipzig, they have been hampered by freezing weather and a crippling injury list, but they have a bullish mindset.

“We’re in a fighting mood,” Fedor Kudryashov said.

That thought was echoed by team-mate Cyril Nababkin, who explained: “Germany are still a high-level team. Their squad is made of great players.

“Both games against Germany and Sweden are important in their own way. We have to win both games.”

The hosts have been warned.
