Our prediction for this Euro 2020 match:
After defeated Estonia 3-0 with ten men on the field in October, Germany will be looking to book their place at the Euro 2020 with a win over Belarus at Stadion im Borussia-Park. Joachim Low’s men quickly bounced back from a shocking 4-2 loss to the Netherlands, and they are on the right track to qualify for the next year’s European Championship.
Since the Germans are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we are positive that they are going to pick up vital three points from Saturday’s qualifier. Belarus have nothing to play for in their last group game, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Leipzig attacker Timo Werner, who looks unstoppable at the moment. It has to be noted, though, that Leroy Sane (injury) and Emre Can (suspension) are out of contention for the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Marco Reus):
Marco Reus is a German football player who was born on 31 May, 1989. The pacey attacking midfielder, who is capable of playing as a winger as well, started his senior career at Rot Weiss Ahlen and it has to be noted that he made 43 league appearances for the club in lower leagues.
In 2009 he signed a four-year contract with Borussia M’gladbach and he scored his first Bundesliga goal against Mainz on 28 August, 2009. After impressing with the Fohlen in the 2011/2012 Bundesliga campaign, he joined Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season. He has been playing for the Millionaires ever since and he represents Germany on the international stage as well.
However, he was more than unfortunate to miss the 2014 FIFA World Cup with injury when Joachim Low’s team lifted the prestigious trophy. To make things even worse for Marco Reus, he was forced to withdraw from the Germany Euro 2016 squad as well (injury). The German ace has a contract with Borussia Dortmund which expires on 30 June, 2019.
Highlighted Team (Belarus):
Belarus national football team have been competing on the international stage since 1992. The Belarusians played their first match against Lithuania on July 20, 1992, but the game was not FIFA-recognized. The White Wings faced Ukraine in their first official match, with the team sharing the spoils with the fellow former Soviet republic.
Belarus have yet to qualify for a major tournament and they have slim chances of booking their place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The Belarusians recorded their biggest win on September 4, 2014, with the team rolling over Tajikistan 6-1 in Borisov and speaking of their biggest loss, they were hammered by Austria (0-5) on June 11, 2003.
Alexander Hleb is the most famous footballer who played for the Belarus national team and it is well known that he spent four seasons at Barcelona. Belarus play their home games at Borisov Arena and they wear white shirts and white shorts when welcoming their rivals. The colour of their away kits is black.
