USA take on the visitors Germany in the round 11 match of Spanish LaLiga2. The match will be played on Saturday, October 14th at Rentschler Field (East Hartford).
The United States remains one of the strongest teams in their continent. The Yanks managed to return to the highest level after their failure in the previous cycle, which resulted in them missing the 2018 World Cup. Moreover, in Qatar, they managed to advance from the group stage, which was undoubtedly a normal, though not extraordinary, outcome. In 2023, they won the Nations League, and the CONCACAF Gold Cup had a surprise outcome: they narrowly advanced to the quarter-finals after a penalty shootout against a neighboring team, and then the favorite lost to Panama in the same format. Now, it's a purely friendly window, but they have gathered European-based players, including defenders Robinson and Jones, who still play for MLS clubs.

Germany has sacked a coach for the first time in history. The Nationalmannschaft has not shone since their World Cup victory in Brazil, which was back in 2014. Four years later, there was a failure with the title holders failing to advance from the group stage. But Joachim Löw left only after Euro 2020, and that was a planned departure. His former assistant, Hansi Flick, took over. Hansi led Bayern Munich to a treble, but struggled in his new role. A disappointing Nations League campaign was followed by a disappointment at the 2022 World Cup when they failed to reach the knockout stage again. However, he was removed only after three consecutive defeats and four in five matches, albeit friendly ones. After his departure, they finally managed to win, beating France 2-1. Then a new full-time coach, Nagelsmann, appeared, and he is currently making his debut in his new role.
The Americans won friendly matches against Germany in 2013 and 2015. However, at the 2014 World Cup, it was the Germans who won, thanks to a single goal by Thomas Müller. There's no reason to be bored, especially with a new coach for the Germans. Expect total over 2.5 goals.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 scored goals.
