Where to watch live

Below is a list of all Olympics 2016 Hockey broadcastersfrom across the world.


Group B Table toppers and the only unbeaten team in the tournament, Germany, looked a class apart in the group stages, winning four and drawing one out of the five games they played. The reigning Olympic champions come into this clash on the back of a 2-1 win over the Netherlands and look like the team to beat in the Rio summer games.

In Florian Fuchs and midfielder Moritz Furste, Germany have two players who are at the top of their game at the moment and with their squad boasting five players who won gold at London 2012, they have one of the more experienced teams in the tournament.

The Germans are the favourites not only to win this game but also the tournament, and it will take a brilliant performance from the opposition to deny them a place in the semi-final.

New Zealand are the lowest ranked side in the quarter-final stage and qualified for the knock-out after finishing in the fourth place with seven points from five games. The Kiwis who caused one of the biggest upsets of the tournament when they beat Belgium 3-1 in their last game on 12 August are not expected to trouble Germany.

However, history has shown that predictions in global competitions are quite tough to predict as all it takes is one moment to change the course of a game. New Zealand will be hoping that the tide turns in their favour as they look to win their first Olympic medal since 1976.
