Another top-level Nations League clash takes place later today with Germany’s trip to Italy.

Since winning the Euros, the Azzurri have had a hard time of it by failing to qualify for the World Cup before a humbling Finalissima defeat to Argentina.

The first steps to recovery take place on home soil with the visit of Germany, a side very much in the midst of a rebuild having experienced a drop-off following a major tournament triumph.

However, Italy have not defeat Die Mannschaft in very nearly a decade.

Here are the details for the game...

Italy vs Germany is scheduled for a 7.45pm BST kick-off on Saturday June 4, 2022.

The Stadio Renato Dall'Ara in Bologna will host the match.
