Germany are set for what should be their easiest game of Euro 2016 qualifying so far as they welcome Gibraltar to Nuremberg on Matchday 4.
The Germans have struggled a bit in their first three matches of qualifying, amassing a 1-1-1 record. After winning their first match against Scotland, Germany were beaten 2-0 by Poland and drew 1-1 against Ireland. It's not the kind of results expected from the defending world champions, but it's hardly time to panic.
On the injury front, Marco Reus, Julian Draxler, Andre Schürrle and Bastian Schweinsteiger are all unavailable, opening the door for the likes of Jonas Hector, Karim Bellarabi and Lars Bender to possibly get some playing time.
Gibraltar has only had a national team since 2013 and this is their first foray into the qualifying process for a major international tournament. Through three games, things have not been going well for the GFA as they've failed to win or draw any matches, allowing 17 goals while not scoring a single one of their own in the process.
Germany are saying all the right things in the media, but you have to think they're feeling good about their chances to get three points on Friday.
