He slips the ball to Jovic inside the box and just as his Frankfurt team-mates is about to shoot, Klostermann slides in with a brilliant sliding tackle to block what looked to be a certain goal. 22' CHANCE FOR WERNER! Gündogan wins possession in midfield and pokes the ball to Havertz, who instantly finds Werner with a forward pass. The Leipzig attacker's pace takes him past the covering defender and into the box, but his shot is well saved by Dmitrovic. 18' AS YOU WERE The goal has done little to change the flow of the game, with Germany still dominating the ball and the visitors sitting deep. Werner has a chance to restore parity, but just can't quite connect with Klostermann's floated cross from the right. 12' JOVIC BREAKS THE DEADLOCK! Serbia take the lead against the run of play! Ljajic's deflected shot wins a corner for the guests and when it is swung in from the right, Kimmich's attempted clearance ricochets off a Serbian attacker and loops up to the unmarked Jovic, who heads past Neuer from six yards! 11' ONE-TOUCH FOOTBALL The move ultimately comes to nothing, but it's nevertheless lovely build-up to watch as Kimmich, Brandt and Werner play their way out of a tight corner with quick one-touch passing.
The lively Reus also dragged wide before the end in what was a particularly promising second-half display for Germany ahead of Sunday’s opening qualifying match against the Dutch in Amsterdam. Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic (c. ) headed Serbia in front in the 12th minute. - imago images / Jan Huebner Match stats Goretzka now has seven goals in 20 games for Germany Germany have now won 17 of their 29 meetings with Serbia, drawing four and losing eight. In Maximilian Eggestein, Niklas Stark and Klostermann, Germany have three players who could have made their debut.
Only the Leipzig full-back did. Toni Kroos is the most capped player in the Germany squad with 91. Neuer is now six back, while 10 players have less than 10 senior international outings. Serbia striker Jovic has scored 22 goals in all competitions for Frankfurt this season, 15 of them coming in the Bundesliga. Jovic, compatriots Mijat Gacinovic and Filip Kostic, and Germany goalkeeper Kevin Trapp are teammates at the Commerzbank Arena.

It's all over.
Approaching the hour mark, though, Reus showed tremendous skill to turn his man inside-out only to be thwarted once more by Dmitrovic. Soon afterwards, Leroy Sane’s header lacked the power to beat the Serbian netminder, and when Gündogan finally did find a way past Dmitrovic, his effort was somehow cleared off the line by Nikola Maksimovic. Germany’s pressure finally paid off, however, when Reus picked out fellow substitute Goretzka, and the Bayern Munich midfielder sidestepped his man before smashing home from just inside the area. Sane drew another two saves from Dmitrovic before Milan Pavkovic was sent off in injury-time for an ugly challenge on the Manchester City player.
For Serbia, Eintracht Frankfurt duo Mijat Gacinovic and Luka Jovic both start. ONE TO WATCH: LUKAS KLOSTERMANN His surname may mean 'friar', but there is nothing quiet and reserved about the RB Leipzig defender's style of play. The 22-year-old, who is captain of the U21s, is set to make his senior international debut here after receiving his first call-up to Joachim Löw's squad. His outstanding performances this season mean his place is undoubtedly warranted. Klostermann has won 54.
KICK-OFF! Germany get the ball rolling at the Volkswagen Arena! NOT LONG TO GO! The teams are lined up in the tunnel and about to take to the pitch. We'll be underway very shortly! NEW FORMATION FOR GERMANY? In recent games, Löw has sent his side out with a three-man backline, but he looks to have reverted to a 4-3-3 here, with two attack-minded full-backs to join in the team's forward forays. TEAM NEWS Klostermann is handed his debut by Löw, with Leipzig teammate Marcel Halstenberg lining up on the opposite side of defence. Meanwhile, there are three Leverkusen players in the starting XI, with Jonathan Tah at centre-back and in-form attackers Kai Havertz and Julian Brandt further forward in midfield.

Brandt strides forward down the right and cuts inside, finding Gündogan. The Manchester City midfielder plays a first-time ball into the box, trying to find Havertz but it's a touch too strong and Dmitrovic comes off his line to smother. 1' FIRST CHANCE FOR GERMANY Gündogan's attempted through-ball to Werner is cut out on the edge of the Serbia area and falls kindly to Klostermann, who wastes little time in shooting, but his side-footed effort curls wide of the far post.

The visitors, on the other hand, were clinical with their first opportunity of the match, and have had two or three more chances to extend their lead on the counter. 44' SERBIA GO CLOSE AGAIN! A free-kick into Germany's box causes havoc and bounces kindly for Milenkovic inside the six-yard box. Just as he's shaping to shoot, Tah slides in with a last-ditch tackles to clear the danger. 41' HOW DID THAT NOT GO IN - PART II? Serbia should be 2-0 up. Germany's defence is carved open and suddenly Ljajic has the ball, completely unmarked and with just Neuer to beat, 10 yards from goal. But he rushes his shot and blazes it high over the bar - a huge let-off for the hosts.
4 per cent of all tackles and only earned one yellow card in 20 appearances, making him a solid member of any backline. Yet it is at the other end of the pitch where he has really caught the eye. The right-back has three goals and one assist for Leipzig in 2018/19 and will now be looking to reproduce that kind of form on the international stage. REUS TO SCORE? Dortmund star Marco Reus has earned 37 international caps since making his debut in 2011, his tally significantly reduced by rotten luck with injuries over the years. He has found the net 10 times for Germany to date, giving him an average of a goal every 3.
