Germany coach Joachim Löw will have to make a number of changes to the side that beat Estonia last time around when 'Die Mannschaft' take on Belarus in a Euro 2020 qualifier at Borussia-Park on Saturday.

Kai Havertz and Marco Reus have both had to withdraw from the squad due to injuries while Emre Can is unvailable because of suspension.

Speaking at a press conference on Friday, Germany coach Joachim Löw confirmed that Manuel Neuer will remain in goal for Saturday's game while Marc-André ter Stegen is set to play against Northern Ireland on Tuesday.

Löw also said that he plans to line up with four at the back, with Matthias Ginter certain to be playing from the start.

Jonathan Tah should start alongside Ginter in central defence, provided he's fit to start. Niklas Stark, on the other hand, is not an option for Saturday due to a broken nose.

Finally, Löw confirmed that Joshua Kimmich, Ilkay Gündogan and Toni Kroos will start in midfield while Serge Gnabry will play up top.

Here's how we expect Germany to line up against Belarus:

Manuel Neuer

Lukas Klostermann
Matthias Ginter
Jonathan Tah
Nico Schulz

Joshua Kimmich
Ilkay Gündogan
Toni Kroos

Julian Brandt
Serge Gnabry
Timo Werner
