In the second match of League A Group 4 which was held at St Jakob Park, Monday (7/9/2020) in the morning WIB, Germany was indeed superior in ball possession, 53 percent compared to 47 percent, but had difficulty dismantling the Swiss defense.
Instead, they were pressured because they only made four attempts on target out of a total of 14. Compared to Switzerland, which made 20 attempts, six on goal. However, Germany took the lead in the 14th minute through Ilkay Guendogan’s strike. After that the wave of German attacks intensified.
However, in the second half, Switzerland got up and dominated Germany before leveling the score 1-1 through Silvan Widmer in the 57th minute. Until the game ended there were no additional goals so Germany had to settle for sharing more numbers.
Starting from a 0-0 draw against France on 6 September 2018, then beaten 0-3 by the Netherlands on 13 October 2018 and 1-2 by France three days later, then a 2-2 draw against the Netherlands on 19 November, and continued in two parties earlier this season. .
As a result, Germany is equal to European small teams such as San Marino, Malta, Latvia and Andorra, both of which have never won in this event.
“Not our best performance indeed. The team actually slowed down at the end of the match,” said midfielder Julian Draxler at AP.
