Germany vs Latvia prediction and preview 

Germany will look for a final dance and Joachin Low in this summer's European Championship and will draw inspiration from their U-21 side who defeated Portugal in the final on Sunday. Die Mannschaft have been drawn in the group of death alongside France and Portugal, and have begun their preparations fairly well, drawing 1-1 against Denmark. Despite the draw, Germany will be pleased with their performance, especially having restricted Christian Eriksen and Co. to just one shot on target during the 90 minutes. 

As for Latvia, they have fallen down the pecking order since their famous 0-0 draw against the Germans way back in Euro 2004. That remains their only major tournament appearance and the nation currently finds itself at 138th in the World rankings. Led by Dainis Kazakevics, who coached Latvia's Under-21s between 2013 and 2020, Latvia will hope for a solid showing but their attentions will be on the upcoming tie against Estonia, with a win there helping them retain the Baltic Cup. Germany are sure shot favourites and should clinch a comfortable 5-0 win.

As for Latvia, Pavels Steinbors, Kristers Tobers and Daniels Ontuzans remain ruled out due to club exertions.
