Germany is likely to stick to the same formation without a true striker, which worked so well against Portugal when Thomas Mueller scored a hat trick. Captain Philipp Lahm will continue in defensive midfield, assistant coach Hansi Flick said.
"We beat them four years ago, but it was a difficult match and we needed some luck," Khedira added. Germany won with a second half goal by Mesut Ozil.
In Brazil, the Germans opened in Group G by defeating Portugal 4 0 and next play Ghana on Saturday. After the loss to Serbia four years ago, Germany edged Ghana 1 0 to advance to the knockout stage.

"Ghana is a very physical team, they try to outplay you, they want to shine," Mertesacker said. "They are a dangerous team and we'll have to be very clever, especially in the heat. We'll have to play good defense."
"We will be totally focused against Ghana. It's an African team and they are very athletic. So we have to concentrate. And I think we will prevail. We have to be tactically clever," the Real Madrid defensive midfielder said.
"We wish to state emphatically that the report is absolutely false and has no basis in fact," the GFA said. "There is no player revolt against the coach of Black Stars and no player or players have been involved in any mutiny in the wake of the 2 1 defeat to the United States."

"They will fight until they bleed," Loew said. "They can attack very well, they are quick, ready to march on for 90 minutes. We have to defend well and be ready to attack with lightning speed once we win the ball."
"I hope he will be able to play, we've just started getting accustomed to playing alongside each other and to have more confidence," Mertesacker said. "It would be a little question mark if Mats can't play but we all know what we have to do."
Essien was back in training after picking up a toe injury in the World Cup loss to the United States. The Ghana team said Essien missed training Wednesday but returned to practice Thursday.
Only one of the five African teams at the World Cup, Ivory Coast, won in the first round of games. Nigeria drew 0 0 with Iran and Cameroon, Ghana and Algeria all lost. Cameroon lost its second, 4 0 to Croatia, and is already out of the tournament.

match in recent tournaments Michael Kors Quilted Purses
FORTALEZA, Brazil (AP) Germany midfielder Sami Khedira is mystified as to why some teams, including his own, seem to run into problems in their second matches at big tournaments.
"Ghana has excellent players who play in good clubs. They don't give up, they are robust and they are technically good," he said.
"I can't explain why the second match is always hard after a win. I think it's a mental thing," Khedira said Friday. "We went through the same experience in 2008 and 2010. We don't want to come to the last game and worry."
Ghana lost 2 1 to the United States in its opener and Germany knows it will be a long, hard game on Saturday.
