Defending champions Germany are in a precarious situation in the early stages of the World Cup 2018 and must defeat Sweden if they are to remain in the title hunt. Sweden toppled South Korea courtesy a VAR gifted penalty and they can be unpredictable at times. A win for Sweden takes them to the knock out stages of the tournament and there can be no bigger incentive than this for the laborious Swedes to lift up their game. Below are the relevant details of Germany vs Sweden live telecast, free live streaming online details in addition to start-time, venue details and their team standings in 2018 FIFA World Cup Group F points table.
The last time Germany lost an opening game was in 1982 and hence Joachim Loew and his men will be hoping to come up with an apt response. Their preparation was hit by a neck injury to center back Matts Hummels who will not feature against Sweden. His place in the team will be taken up by Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger. There are also talks of striker Mario Gomez to start the game and his presence could add more ammunition to an already powerful attack. Mesut Ozil and Thomas Muller will both have to show more involvement in the game if Germany are to come up with all three points. 2018 FIFA World Cup TV Ratings: Viewership in US Falls by 44 Percent in Comparison of 2014 World Cup.
Sweden will welcome back Victor Lindelof who missed his sides opening game due to illness will start against Germany. The Manchester United defender played a crucial role in Sweden’s playoff win over Italy and is a brilliant reader of the game. Issac Thelin’s ankle problems rule him out of this crucial tie and apart from him, there are no other injury concerns. Striking department is a bit of weakness for the Swedes and Marcus Berg knows he has big boots of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to fill which is easier said than done. Sweden have not beaten Germany in their last 11 attempts but these things count for little in a stage as big as the World Cup. They could defeat Germany for the first time in 40 years if they can keep their composure as it is Germany who is chasing a win and not the other way round.
