Who does national coach Hansi Flick play from the start in the fateful game against Spain?

The expected starting line-up of the DFB-Elf.

Update from November 27th, 7:01 a.m .:

Today Germany may have a decisive game at this World Cup: From 8 p.m. the DFB-Elf fights against Spain against the early end.

The big question is of course: Who is Hansi Flick putting up?

According to

Sport1

information, Lukas Klostermann could become a surprise option for the right-back position.

The man from Leipzig was injured for a long time, but the national coach is a big fan of his and even let him play from the start in the last World Cup friendly against Oman.

The 26-year-old then played 34 minutes, the substitution was agreed.

Flick wanted to give Klostermann match practice but not overload him.

So will the RB man be a big surprise?

Klostermann is extremely fast, which would certainly not be a disadvantage against the lively Spaniards.

He also knows Dani Olmo, one of the offensive opponents from Leipzig, very well.

World Cup 2022: Germany against Spain – who will Hansi Flick set up on Saturday?

Flick described the game on Saturday evening as the first "final" of the World Cup.

The Heidelberger leaves all options open before the game of fate, as he noted at the press conference.

"I'm not insecure.

The nice thing is that several positions are open because of the quality.

I'll sleep on it one night, watch the final training session and I'll be a bit smarter tomorrow morning," said the national coach on Saturday.

Despite all the secrecy about the starting eleven against the Iberians, one thing is certain for Flick: "We will see a team that knows what is at stake and is willing to do everything to ensure that we leave the door to the round of 16 open." Yes what could the best possible line-up look like?

World Cup 2022: Schlotterbeck probably on the bench – Süle and Rüdiger possible in the middle

The goalkeeper position feels like the only place where Flick doesn't have to worry.

National team captain Manuel Neuer proved his class several times despite the bankruptcy against Japan and showed one or the other parade.

However, the division of personnel in the immediate front men is probably the greatest challenge for Flick.

Because the back four was simply too full against Japan, Niklas Süle and Nico Schlotterbeck were the focus of criticism after the defeat.

It is therefore expected that West Ham United's Thilo Kehrer will start at right-back instead of Süle, leaving Schlotterbeck on the substitutes' bench.

In view of Hansi Flick's statements, it can be assumed that Joshua Kimmich will not play in his secondary position on the right defensive side.

Germany vs Spain: Compact three-man midfield or a top-class player on the bench?

Süle could probably move into the middle for the weak Schlotterbeck and form a duo with defense chief Antonio Rüdiger.

Whether the ineffective Leipzig left-back David Raum will also be in the starting XI against Spain is also questionable.

However, Flick should not change too much either.

In defensive midfield, Flick will probably rely on compactness.

A three-man midfield consisting of Leon Goretzka, Joshua Kimmich and Ilkay Gündogan, the scorer from the Japan game, is conceivable.

"These are all three excellent players, all three of whom can also play in midfield, without a doubt," said Flick at the media round about his headquarters.

It would also be possible that either Gündogan or Goretzka would have to go to the substitute bench.

DFB offensive against Spain: Leroy Sané probably not fit in time for the starting eleven

But who will score the goals when the 2010 and 2014 world champions meet in Al-Khor?

Leroy Sané trained again after his knee problems, but according to Flick you still have to wait for the final training session.

The hapless Thomas Müller could get a second chance, but could possibly be replaced by the often central Jamal Musiala.

Musiala had whirled on the left wing against Japan and certainly caused danger in individual scenes.

Mario Götze would also be an alternative for the Müller position behind the top.

Actually, Serge Gnabry was in great form before the Japan game and showed good performances at Bayern, it is quite possible that Flick will try again with the Swabian in the starting XI.

However, Jonas Hofmann from Gladbach is also a serious alternative for the right flank.

World Cup 2022: Riddles about striker - Moukoko or filling jug instead of Havertz?

Attacking midfielder Kai Havertz was the only striker in the starting XI against Japan.

This time, Flick could field a real attacker in BVB talent Youssoufa Moukoko or the more robust Niclas Füllkrug.

Probable line-up: Neuer - Kehrer, Süle, Rüdiger, Raum - Kimmich, Gündogan - Hofmann, Müller, Musiala - Füllkrug
