UNL: Germany facing relegation?

UEFA Nations League: Germany facing relegation and five facts before finals

October 16, 2018 By Ali M.
Die Mannschaft will lock horns with the World Cup champion at Stade de France needing a win to stay clear of the drop.

The final round of UEFA Nations League for the month of October is set to be played on Tuesday. Action will not resume in this competition until November's international break, meaning the results in today's games will affect morale heading into the final few games.

France vs Germany is the most ancitipated game, as the World Cup champion will take on Low's struggling giant. A lot is at stake in this Stade de France clash, with relegation being a huge risk for die Mannschaft.

Here are the standout stats from the UEFA Nations League, including key figures to the upcoming Paris showdown.

Could Germany get relegated?

Yes, they can. If they lose to France, the drop will almost be guaranteed for Joachim Low's men. Should they suffer defeat, which is looking like a likely outcome given their loss to Netherlands, die Mannschaft will have only one point from three games.

France, currently with four points, would be at seven if that happens, leaving them in pole position to move on to the finals. Netherlands has four and boasts a superior goal difference than Kroos and Co. For this reason, Ronald Koeman's side will probably need only a point from their remaining two fixtures to avoid relegation. A lot is on the line for Germany today.

Key facts

Portugal only a point away from progressing

Despite being without Cristiano recently, Portugal still holds all the cards in Group 3. They travel to Italy in their next game but only need a point to make the finals. If they fail, a victory against Poland would sufice.

Speaking of Poland...

The number of teams that have already been relegated

Currently, that figure stands at two. They are Poland and Iceland.

Permutations for Switzerland to pull off the impossible vs Belgium

Currently, Belgium is in pole position to progress. They are level on points with Switzerland, trailing the leader by goal difference, but have a game in hand. And given Hazard and Co.'s form, the safe bet would be on them picking up a six points from their last two games.

However, Switzerland can still beat them to the final. All they need is a two-goal win over the Red Devils and will upset the European giant.

Lukaku's UEFA Nations League goalscoring form might make that difficult, however

Everyone in League A Group 4 can still qualify

Group 4 sees Spain, England, and Croatia battling it out. La Furia Roja sits in the lead with six points, with the Three Lions closely behind with four, while Croatia has only one.

However, all three teams can still qualify. Enrique's men need only a win in their final game to progress, Southgate's side needs to beat Croatia and Spain to slip up to continue, while Modric and Co. will leapfrog everyone with victories in both of their final games.
