Low wary of Chile
Joachim Low says his Germany side will have to be at their best to overcome Chile in the Confederations Cup final on Sunday.
Low opted to name an experimental side for the tournament in Russia and they have managed to impress, winning three of their four games to date to secure a spot in the showpiece.
The two sides met in the group stages and played out a 1-1 draw, with Germany then going on to beat Mexico 4-1 in the last four.
Chile, who downed Portugal on penalties in their semi-final spot, have won consecutive Copa America crows and Low believes the world champions will have to be on top of their game to claim the trophy.
"Germany and Chile have been the best two teams during this tournament," he told Deutscher Fussball-Bund.
"I think that it will be a very tight and intense game tomorrow. Both teams want to win this title and we know what to expect. Chile are a brilliant team that have gelled very well, have great chemistry and experience, so we will need to be at our best if we are to win this game."
He added: "We admire Chile. It is a small country and they have won the Copa America against footballing giants like Argentina and Brazil. They have eight, nine, ten, eleven world class players in their ranks that are all top players at their clubs."
Germany are 11/8 to win on Sunday and Julian Draxler is 11/4 to score at any time.
