Germany will begin preparations for the UEFA Euro 2024 with a friendly against Peru at the MEWA Arena in Mainz on Saturday.

Germany will take on Peru in an international friendly at home on Saturday, as the hosts seek to regain form following their disappointing campaign in the 2022 FIFA World Cup. After lifting the trophy at the 2014 World Cup, Die Mannschaft have since struggled with two humiliating eliminations from the group stage in the subsequent world editions, including their latest underwhelming performance in Qatar, where they finished behind Japan and Spain.

Hansi Flick's team will be hoping to start the year on a positive note after a poor run of results, with just three victories from their last 11 matches under the former Bayern Munich sextuple-winner. The team's third-placed finish in the 2022-23 Nations League edition did little to ease concerns, having drawn four games and won just one against the likes of England, Italy, and Hungary.

However, the hosts have an unbeaten record in their last 12 friendly matches, with their last loss in an exhibition game coming against Austria in 2018. As they seek to turn their fortunes around, Flick's men will have to put their recent woes behind them and make a strong statement against Peru.

Meanwhile, the visitors will relish the opportunity to test themselves against the hosts, having failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup after losing to Australia in the playoffs. With six of the ten participants in the upcoming South American campaign set to qualify for the first World Cup with 48 teams, Peru will be looking to build momentum and secure a spot in the tournament.

Under new coach Juan Reynoso, the Incas have won three of their first four games in charge, with victories against El Salvador, Paraguay, and Bolivia. The only loss in Reynoso's maiden match came in a narrow 1-0 defeat to Mexico. As they prepare for their clash against Germany, Peru will be looking to continue their winning streak and build on their recent successes.

Both teams will be eager to make a statement in Saturday's friendly match, with Germany seeking to regain their confidence and Peru looking to continue their winning form under their new coach.
