Original title: German preview: quasi-Bundesliga civil war staged. Can Loew justify himself?
At 2:45 am on October 14th, Beijing time, the UEFA Europa League A Group D match will continue. Germany will play against Switzerland at home. The two sides will meet for the second time in this UEFA Europa League. The first round of the Swiss home game is 1-1. Ping Germany.
Germany has played against Switzerland in 52 matches in history. Switzerland is Germany’s most-fighted opponent so far. In these 52 matches, Germany has the upper hand with 36 wins, 7 draws and 9 losses, but the last 2 matches against Germany have only 1 draw and 1 Lost. One month ago, the Europa League two teams drew 1-1. Switzerland scored 20 shots in a single game. The next match was in 2012. Germany and Switzerland played a 3- 5 lost.
Switzerland borders Germany on the territory, and the ties between Switzerland and Germany in football are also very close. In the hand-off between the two sides a month ago, there were as many as 6 active Bundesliga players in the Swiss starting starter, including Sommer and Azerbaijan. Players such as Kanji, in addition to former Bundesliga players such as Xhaka and Ronaldo, and what is interesting is that Germany only started with Gentle, Jule and Sane as active Bundesliga players.
Considering that Switzerland has a large number of international players or has played for the Bundesliga, with the Bundesliga as a platform, the German and Swiss internationals have a high degree of mutual understanding, and tonight's game will also stage a quasi-Bundesliga civil war, know yourself and know each other. Next, I don't know which team can be better?
Although Germany defeated Ukraine 2-1 in the last UEFA Europa League game, the team won the UEFA Europa League first. However, the team only won by one goal, and the scene did not show up. Suppressing the situation, therefore, the criticism surrounding the German coach Loew is still endless.
In the recent national team game, Loew used three central defenders as a test, but the performance of the three defenders composed of Rudiger, Zule and Gentel can only be described as unsatisfactory. The last game against Ukraine Zule gave points In the previous three consecutive games, Germany was equalized by the opponent after taking the lead. The problem of the back line urgently needs to be solved by Loew, and the three-back does not seem to be a correct solution.
In addition, Loew did not use Werner or Waldschmidt in the last round. Instead, he chose a non-front line led by Gnabry and Dr. De. The effect did not meet expectations. Faced with recent concerns With doubts about his own use and formation, Loew needs to continue to improve his tactics to get his name right.
