Goal: alexis scores at the six minute mark from an error committed by the German defence that looks shaken at the moment.
Both Germany and Chile have won their opening games in FIFA confederations cup 2017 against Australia and Cameroon respectively.
History stands on Germany’s side who have a perfect winning record against Chile. But Germany will be concerned about their defensive discipline which was not up to their mark in the opening game against Australia which they won 3-2.
Joachim Low will return to a back four against such strong opponents, a formation also familiar to many of his players from their club football. As most of German players are young and low on experience and Chile being more of an experienced and mature side.
Chile’s Arturo Vidal will meet his former team mate kimmich from German club Bayern Munich this will be their first face off against each other after their separation.
Both the teams will try to put pressure early on the opponents and will be looking to exploit each others weakness and to pounce on them. Both the teams will be looking to attack right from the kick off whistle and a free scoring game looks very much on the cards.
Germany will try to book their semi final berth by winning this crucial game against strong opponent. This is the kind of game Low will be waiting for to check the efficiency of his young guns who are to appear in the next FIFA WORLD CUP.
