  • 0' - Welcome to Khalifa International Stadium that hosts another battle between Germany and Japan.
  • 5' - Not even hints on scoring a goal over the last 5 minutes.
  • 10' - Both teams are passing the ball around with high level of urgency. Japan needs to do something about it to get closer to the goal.
  • 15' - Germany is showing some good football. However, Germany are ready to play back every minute. It might result in some problems for the home side. The game will hardly remain goalless.
  • 20' - Japan looks like a favorite considering 1 games won in last 1 matches with its main striker Ritsu Doan scoring 2 goals.
  • 25' - While players are taking a pause, let’s have a look at their stats. The teams met 1 times this season with Japan winning 100% of all matches.
  • 30' - Although teams showed high tempo form the start, they seem to slow down a bit. Both sides really need to catch a fire. Otherwise, we have another goalless match.
  • 33' - Goal! Ilkay Gundogan scores his 41 goal in 233 matches.
  • 38' - While there is no rush on the pitch, let’s have a look at some stats. Jamal Musiala made 357 appearances and scored 29 goals. He is very likely to score a goal today.
  • 43' - It’s high time Hansi Flick made some changes to put the his team’s game back to action.
