The first international break of the season is upon us, and Barcelona fans still have to wait 10 days to watch their beloved Blaugrana again. But there’s a great way to pass the time and watch quality football on Friday: an awesome European Qualifier match between Germany and Netherlands.
This will be the fourth meeting in less than a year for these two nations and a rivalry is really starting to happen: in the previous three matches there was a win apiece plus a draw, with the Germans winning the most recent clash in March in what was a fantastic football game in Amsterdam.
Now they meet in Hamburg, with the Dutch really needing at least a point to stay in the fight for one of the top two seeds in Group C. This is also a great chance to watch Frenkie De Jong play for the Oranje, which is always a treat, so don’t miss it. It’s must-see TV.
