Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 8pm BST. BBC One and BBC One UK will provide live coverage in the United Kingdom. Radio commentary of the game will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


Germany and Italy are the two favourites to win the tournament but the stage has come for one of the two sides to exit the show in Bordeaux on Saturday. The two teams will face each other in the quarter-final clash and the winning side will progress further to the semi-final of the Euro 2016.

Joachin Low's side are so far unbeaten in the tournament, having won three out of the four matches played. The only draw came against Poland. In the Round of 16 clash, they registered a comfortable 3-0 victory over Slovakia to seal a quarter-final berth.

In the four matches played so far, Germany are yet to concede a goal and have scored six goals in the process. Low would be hoping for another clean sheet when they take on Italy on 2 July. However, he would also be looking to get an outcome in 90 minutes.

Defending champions Spain were eliminated from the European championship following their 2-0 defeat at the hands of Italy in the last 16. Antonio Conte's side have managed to beat Belgium and Spain so far in the tournament and he will be looking for a victory over Germany to make his side the firm favourites to win the Euro 2016.

Both Germany and Italy faced each other in the semi-final of the Euro 2016 and it was the Azzurri who made it to the final after defeating the World Champions 2-1. Mario Balotelli was the star man for Italy, scoring both the goals for his side.
