Germany vs Malaysia
In today's first hockey game, Malaysia will lock horns with Germany at Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar.
Malaysia and Germany have played only once since 2013. London Olympic Gold Medallist Germany won that match 6-0.
In the Hockey World Cup 2018, Germany had hard fought 1-0 victory against Pakistan in their opening encounter, while thrashed Netherlands 4-1 in the second.
Malaysia, on the other hand, lost their first match against Netherlands and played a draw against Pakistan.
