After three draws in a row, Germany will look to get back to winning ways when they take on Ukraine in the UEFA Nations League in Kiev on Saturday at 20.45 CET.

Germany coach Joachim Löw is expected to make plenty of changes to the second-string side that shared the spoils with Turkey in a 3-3 draw on Wednesday, with the likes of Manuel Neuer, Joshua Kimmich, Toni Kroos, Serge Gnabry and Timo Werner all set to come back into the line-up.

"We've faced some difficulties in recent games. We have to try and overcome them now. All players who have travelled with us are fit and ready, and we are highly motivated," Löw said at the pre-match press conference.

"Toni Kroos took part in full training, as did Serge Gnabry. Timo Werner is also back in team training today.

"As far as the line-up is concerned, I will make decisions tonight. I have some considerations."

Here's how Germany could line up:

Manuel Neuer

Matthias Ginter
Niklas Süle
Marcel Halstenberg

Lukas Klostermann
Joshua Kimmich
Toni Kroos
Robin Gosens

Leon Goretzka

Serge Gnabry
Timo Werner
