Joachim Low will be without a number of key players. Matthias Ginter (shoulder), Jonas Hector (thigh) and Toni Kroos (thigh) were all forced to pull out while an ankle injury has ruled out Nico Schulz.
Furthermore, Timo Werner (flu) and Ilkay Gundogan (muscle injury) are doubts, which means Serge Gnabry could be joined by Kai Havertz and Julian Brandt in the attack. Manuel Neuer will sit this game out after the manager announced Marc-Andre ter Stegen will feature in this friendly.
As for Argentina, their biggest absentee is Lionel Messi. The national team captain is unable to report for duty after being hit with a three-month international ban for accusing CONMEBOL of rigging the recent Copa America tournament. Sergio Aguero and Angel Di Maria have been left out, with the boss focusing on youth.
In Leo’s absence, Dybala and Lautaro will lead Scaloni’s attack. In midfield, Leandro Paredes is tipped to start once more.
