Germany host Australia tomorrow night in what should be a thoroughly entertaining international friendly at Borussia-Park in Mönchengladbach.

The hosts have a perfect record in their Euro 2012 qualification group so far, a run they maintained on Saturday with a convincing 4-0 victory over Kazakhstan.

Miroslav Klose and Thomas Müller grabbed two goals apiece to put the Germans eight points clear at the top of Group A and confidence is certainly high in the camp.

The clash with Australia presents a chance for Joachim Löw to experiment a bit more with his team though so he can see which players might be able to step up in a competitive fixture in the future.

Opponents Australia will look to prove their worth against strong European opposition and get some revenge for the 4-0 defeat to Germany in last year’s World Cup in South Africa.

Low’s men were a class apart that day, but Australia will be looking to build on an Asia Cup campaign where they finished runners-up after losing out to Japan in the Qatar final.

Looking at team news for this one, as mentioned Germany are likely to make a number of changes. Mesut Özil and Sami Khedira will be rested, paving the way for the likes of André Schürrle, Mats Hummels and Marcel Schmelzer to be heavily involved.

As for Australia, they will have to cope without Tim Cahill who is still recovering from a foot injury and will rely on Harry Kewell and Nikita Rukavytsya to trouble the German defence.
