Germany have secured qualification for the knockout stages as group winners following their hugely impressive win over pre-tournament favourites Spain during the week and will surely use this game against a weak Finland side to rotate and give their players a badly needed rest.

Finland, on the other hand, bowed out of the tournament following their narrow 1-0 defeat to Denmark.

WHAT: UEFA Euro 2020 – Group B: Finland v Germany
WHEN: Saturday, July 16: 8pm
WHERE: Stadium MK
HOW TO WATCH: BBC Two, iPlayer

The Finnish are pointless after two games and cannot mathematically catch Spain or Denmark, who play each other on Saturday evening.

Finland were underwhelming in their defeat to Denmark and only came alive in added-on time, creating their best chances in the final minutes of the game.

They have a chance to salvage some pride against what will likely be an experimental German team on Saturday.

Finland +3

Germany are rightfully installed as unbackable favourites for Saturday’s encounter and it would be hugely surprising if Finland could get a result, even if it is against a second-string German side.

However, Finland showed their quality in qualifying for the Euros ahead of Portugal and Scotland and will want to ensure that they take some pride away from their first international tournament appearance since 2009.

They will put it up to a rotated German side and should avoid suffering a similar hammering to the one they suffered against Spain in their opening game.

Germany to Win 2-0

Germany are yet to concede a goal at this year’s Euros, keeping out a hugely impressive Spanish attack the last time out.

Finland, on the other hand, hardly looked like scoring against Denmark during the week, although they did manage to shock the Spanish with a first-minute goal in their group opener.

They will likely be playing against a much-changed German rear guard but are unlikely to find any joy.

Finland will huff and puff in their bid to close out their Euros campaign with a famous result, but all signs point to a rather comfortable German win.

Jule Brand to Score First & Germany to Win 2-0

Jule Brand has yet to start at this year’s Euros but should be in line to change that on Saturday with manager Martina Voss-Tecklenburg set to ring the changes.

The talented 19-year-old midfielder has made substitute appearance in each of Germany’s two games to date and boasts a fairly decent record five goals in 17 international caps, with many of those caps coming from the bench.

She has just sealed a high-profile move to German champions Wolfsburg and can cap off an excellent summer by scoring her first goal at an international tournament.
