World champions Germany will be looking to kick start their World Cup campaign when they face Sweden this evening.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h00.
The defending champions will have to turn the tables after a stuttering start where they lost their Group F opener 1-0 to Mexico last weekend.
Germany coach Joachim Low has already confirmed that defender Mats Hummels will miss tonight's clash after hurting his neck.
Meanwhile, the Swedes would have been encouraged by the defeat of the Germans in the opening clash and will feel confident heading into the encounter.
The Scandinavians also boosted their own campaign with a 1-0 win over Korea Republic in their opening match.
The two countries have played each other 22 times before and Germany lead the head-to-head statistics, having won 10 of the games compared to Sweden's eight, while a total of four matches have been drawn between the two sides.
Here's how they line up:
Germany: Neuer; Kimmich, Boateng, Rudiger, Hector; Muller, Kroos, Draxler, Reus; Werner, Gomez.
Sweden: Olsen; Lustig, Lindelof, Granqvist, Augustinsson; Claesson, Ekdal; Larsson, Forsberg; Berg, Toivonen.
