By Rune Gjerulff

We take a look at the team Germany coach Joachim Löw could field against Latvia on Monday.

Kai Havertz is pushing to start for Germany after recently linking up with the team.

1,000 fans will be allowed in at the Merkur Spiel-Arena in Düsseldorf as Germany take on Latvia on Monday in their second and final warm-up friendly ahead of the Euros.

Germany coach Joachim Löw could make several changes to the team that drew 1-1 with Denmark on Wednesday, with Antonio Rüdiger, Ilkay Gündogan, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner all in contention to start after joining up with the rest of the squad.

Based on Sunday's training session, Löw is set to stick with a three-man defence, with Rüdiger slotting in alongside Mats Hummels and Matthias Ginter at the back.

Joshua Kimmich, meanwhile, was fielded at right wing-back, forming the midfield four with Toni Kroos, Ilkay Gündogan and Robin Gosens.

Serge Gnabry and Thomas Müller look set to keep their places up front while Kai Havertz could come in to replace Leroy Sané.

Lukas Klostermann and Leon Goretzka are unlikely to feature after missing out on Sunday.

This is how Germany's starting eleven could look:

Manuel Neuer

Antonio Rüdiger
Mats Hummels
Matthias Ginter

Joshua Kimmich
Toni Kroos
Ilkay Gündogan
Robin Gosens

Kai Havertz
Thomas Müller
Serge Gnabry

Latvia's probable line-up: Ozols - Savaļnieks, Cernomordijs, Oss, Jurkovskis - Emsis, Zjuzins - Kamess, Ikaunieks, Ciganiks - Uldrikis.
