Our prediction for this Euro 2020 match:
As expected, Germany recorded a routine 2-0 win over Belarus at the weekend, with the team climbing to second place in the standings. Joachim Low’s men aim to keep their 100% record in the Euro 2020 qualifiers intact and we predict that they will go all guns blazing at Estonia. Both Leroy Sane and Marco Reus scored against the Belarusians and, no doubt, all eyes will be on the duo when two teams face each other at OPEL ARENA.
The Estonians, on the other hand, suffered a 2-1 loss to Northern Ireland in front of home fans in their last group game and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Germany’s party in Mainz. In their last meeting in a competitive match Germany recorded a routine 4-1 win over Estonia and we are positive the history is going to repeat itself.
Highlighted Player (Leroy Sane):
Leroy Sane began his senior career at Schalke 04. The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as attacking midfielder as well, made his debut for die Knappen on 20 April, 2014 against Stuttgart. Sane came as a substitute in the second half of the match, replacing Max Mayer 13 minutes before the final whistle.
He scored 11 goals in 47 league appearances for Schalke and on 2 August, 2016 he signed a deal with big-spending Premier League side Manchester City. The former Schalke footballer joined the Citizens on a five-year deal for a fee of £37 million. Sane was born in Essen on 11 January, 1996, but his father is Senegalese.
Souleymane Sane used to play for the Senegalese national football team in the past, while his mother Regina Weber was a rhythmic gymnast. Speaking of his international career, Leroy Sane has 6 caps for Germany U21 and he made his debut for the senior team on 13 November, 2015 in a 2-0 loss to France.
Highlighted Team (Estonia):
Former Soviet republic Estonia declared its independence on August 20, 1991 and they have been participating in FIFA and UEFA competitions ever since. The Estonians have yet to make it to the finals of a major tournament, but they often made life difficult for European giants in the qualifiers.
In 2010 Estonia did well to beat Serbia in Belgrade in the Euro 2012 qualifiers, but they eventually failed to qualify for the showpiece tournament. “The Blueshirts” welcome their rivals at Le Coq Arena in Tallinn and the capacity of the stadium is 10.500. Sergei Zenjov, who played for the likes of Blackpool, Karpaty and Torpedo Moscow in the past is one of the most famous Estonian footballers.
Ragnar Klavan is yet another notable footballer who plays for both Estonia national football team and Liverpool. The Estonians play their home games in blue shirts and black shorts, while they wear white shirts and white shorts when playing on the travels.
