However, their opponents’ need for victory is far greater than theirs.

It was to be expected that this duel would decide first place in the group, but after losing their opening match, Germany would be happy just to progress.

The side have everything to prove after exiting the 2018 group stage with a whimper.

SunSport takes a look at what to expect from Spain vs Germany, including our result prediction.

How are you?

Spain: La Roja made a big statement of intent with a 7-0 win over Costa Rica.

For the Ticos, who didn’t get a single shot, it was death in a thousand passes.

Germany: The Germans are facing the second consecutive World Cup elimination in the group stage.

They were beaten 2-1 by Japan and will effectively be eliminated if the Japanese get a better result against Costa Rica than against Luis Enrique’s side.

Any injuries to worry about?

Spain: The Spanish camp was hit by a virus after the win over Costa Rica, affecting a number of players including goalscorer Alvaro Morata.

However, it is not expected to keep any of Luis Enrique’s players out of the clash with the Germans.

Germany: Leroy Sané suffered a knee injury in the run-up to Germany’s defeat by Japan.

He’s safe for the game against Spain and could face the bleak prospect of his country’s elimination before he’s kicked a ball.

Who will the star men be?

Spain: The whole team excelled during Spain’s hammer against Costa Rica, but one man in particular stood out.

Kopa Trophy winner Gavi was at the heart of everything Spain did and the Barcelona prodigy was already looking set to make a breakthrough at the tournament.

Germany: Jamal Musiala was good at spells despite Germany’s 2-1 loss to Japan.

German fans will be hoping the former England Under-21 star can wreak havoc on the wings while Hansi Flick’s men try to make the most of what little possession they get.

What is the head-to-head race?

Germany have a slightly superior head-to-head record with nine wins compared to Spain’s eight and eight draws.

At the World Cup, Germany won twice, while Spain won once and there was a draw.

However, in recent years the games have seen consistent Spanish dominance.

The Spaniards have won four of their last seven games, including a 1-0 win in the 2010 World Cup semi-finals, which they went on to win.

Two of those games ended in a draw while one, a friendly in 2014, was won by Germany.

The teams last met two years ago when Luis Enrique’s side celebrated an impressive 6-0 win in Seville.
