Germany continue their Euro 2024 warm-up with a friendly clash against neighbours Belgium in Cologne on March 28.
Hansi Flick’s side are already assured of their spot at the tournament next year as the host nation, but he will be looking to keep his squad refreshed with as much match action as possible in the next 12 months.
Belgium will need to qualify for the tournament, and Domenico Tedesco kicked off his tenure in style last week, as Romelu Lukaku’s hat-trick eased them to a 3-0 win in Sweden in their opening match in Group F.
Here’s all the key information on the match including kickoff time, live streaming and TV channels, lineups and betting odds.

Germany vs Belgium projected lineups
Despite their 2-0 friendly win over Peru last week, Flick is expected to rotate his starting lineup, with Leon Goretzka, Serge Gnabry and Thilo Kehrer pushing to start alongside the on-form Niclas Fullkrug.
Germany starting XI (4-2-2-2): Ter Stegen (GK) — Wolf, Ginter, Kehrer, Raum — Goretzka, Kimmich — Gnabry, Havertz — Fullkrug, Werner
Based on their impressive win in Solna, Tedesco is also set to stick with a largely unchanged Belgium team, with AC Milan’s Alexis Saelemaekers a potential starter. Thibaut Courtois has returned to Real Madrid due to an injury, so there will be a change in goal.
Belgium starting XI (4-3-3): Casteels (GK) — Castagne, Faes, Vertonghen, Theate — De Bruyne, Onana, Carrasco — Saelemaekers, Lukaku, Trossard
Germany vs Belgium prediction, odds
Wins at the start of 2023 mean there is very little to pick between the two sides in terms of current form but recent history certainly favours Flick’s hosts.
Germany have not lost to Belgium in their past 16 meetings, stretching back to 1954, including home and away victories as part of their Euro 2012 qualifying campaign.
