Spain take on Germany in Group E, with both teams having vastly contrasting starts in their respective World Cup campaigns.

Things couldn’t have gone better for Spain after beating Costa Rica 7-0 in one of the best performances of the tournament to date.

But the mood couldn’t be more different for Germany after they threw away a lead late on to suffer a shock 2-1 defeat to Japan that left them on the verge of an exit.

Before the tournament, Spain’s match against Germany looked set to be the game that would decide who would take the lead in Group E.

However, now that it has turned into a crucial game for Germany in another sense, as if they lose again and Japan avoid defeat to Costa Rica, they would be out of the World Cup in the group stage for the second year in a row. With the collision fast approaching, Sports mail takes you through everything you need to know below.

Spain vs Germany: Team News

Spain headed in their opener against Costa Rica due to a virus hitting the camp, which Luis Enrique probably would have factored into part of his match XI selection.

All those players suspected of contracting illness, such as Álvaro Morata who starred after coming on as a substitute, did not appear to have suffered and Enrique is expected to have a fully fit squad.

In the defeat to Japan, Leroy Sane missed the opening game with a knee injury and Germany coach Hansi Flick is now hoping the striker will be available to take on Spain.

Head to head record

There’s a rich history between these teams and it’s pretty evenly split across their previous 25 games, with Germany winning nine and Spain winning eight.

Perhaps the most famous was when Spain beat Germany to win Euro 2008 after a Fernando Torres goal, but Germany has the lead in World Cups.

As West Germany, they defeated Spain at the 1966 World Cup in a group stage match at Vila Park, and that was followed by another West Germany victory that effectively knocked out the home nation at the second group stage of the 1982 World Cup, as they drew played at the 1994 World Cup.

They last met in a major tournament 12 years ago at the World Cup in South Africa, which Spain won 1-0 – and in their last meeting in the Nations League two years ago, the Spanish side recorded an incredible 6-0 victory.
