Germany host Switzerland in the UEFA Nations League in Cologne's RheinEnergieStadion on Tuesday night, having just secured the first-ever win in the competition in Ukraine on Saturday night.

Switzerland lost 1-0 to Spain in Madrid, and are in danger of being relegated from League A, with this group already halfway through its full set of fixtures.

Switzerland have picked up just a solitary point so far, which was thanks to a draw in the reverse fixture against Germany. They lost to Ukraine last month, before the loss in Madrid on Saturday.

For Germany, the campaign began with draws against Spain and Switzerland in September, but they will now have hope of making the knockout stages, after that win in Ukraine.

Germany are currently two points behind Spain, and with a trip to Madrid pending next month, it is imperative that they take the three points from this game.


Germany vs Switzerland Head-to-Head

Germany have an overwhelming head-to-head record against the Swiss, having won 35 of the 51 matches they have played against them. Switzerland have only won nine.
