Germany coach Joachim Loew and his assistant Hansi Flick hit the road this weekend to check the form of several key players and keep an eye on possible Euro 2012 opponents.
Loew flew to Spain to watch Real Madrid play Barcelona on Saturday at the Santiago Bernabeu, it was reported on the German Football Federation (DFB) website.
The German boss was keeping an eye on German stars Mesut Ozil and Sami Khedira, who play for Real, and will meet the pair on Sunday, as well as Madrid boss Jose Mourinho to exchange ideas.
Loew's assistant Flick is heading to England to watch Chelsea play Premier League leaders Manchester City on Monday in London.
Germany have been drawn in Group B alongside Holland, Portugal and Denmark for Euro 2012, to be hosted by Poland and the Ukraine, which kicks off next year on June 8 and the final will be held in Kiev on July 1.
