Germany are looking for payback when they visit North Macedonia in Skopje for a World Cup qualifier on Monday.

Back in March, ‘Die Mannschaft’ suffered a sensational 1-2 loss at home to tonight’s opponent under former coach Joachim Löw, with that meeting being the only time they have dropped points in Group J.

In fact, having taken 18 points from seven games, Germany can seal their qualification to the World Cup with a win tonight.

Germany coach Hansi Flick is expected to have a full squad at his disposal for the game, with Manuel Neuer and Thomas Müller likely to replace Marc-André ter Stegen and Marco Reus in the starting line-up.

Check out our predicted line-ups below.
