Germany come into the game against Northern Ireland needing at least a point to guarantee their qualification to the Round of 16 of the European Championships. They will need all three points to finish top of the group, as Poland have a chance to pip them, if they beat Ukraine in their last group game. They are currently on top of the group with four point's level with the Poles, while Northern Ireland have three points owing to their win over Ukraine.

Joachim Low's side showed strong form in their opening encounter against Ukraine, but faltered against Poland in the second game and barely escaped with a point. They will now be hoping to continue their dominance over Northern Ireland when they face them at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday.

Thomas Muller (L) is likely to be moved to a central strikers role for Germany's clash against Northern Ireland on Tuesday Getty

Michael O'Neill's side also have a good chance to qualify for the Round of 16 if they manage to get at least a point from their game against the reigning world champions. They pulled off an impressive win over Ukraine and the manager will hope for a similar performance against the Germans.

The stats do not read well for the minnows, who have lost their last four matches against the 2014 World Cup winners conceding 14 goals and while managing to score only two goals. Their last win over the Germans came in 1983 during qualifying for the 1984 European Championship finals.

What manager's say

Thomas Schneider* (Germany assistant manager): "We have always stated that we want to finish top of our group, so whether or not our place in the last 16 is confirmed [on Monday], it will have no impact on our line-up. We respect our opposition. Northern Ireland didn't qualify as a best third-placed side; they had a great qualification campaign and won their group.

It is quite possible that there will be one or more changes to the line-up regardless. And sure, we've spoken about moving Thomas Müller up front. Is it going to happen? You will have to wait and see."

*Joachim Low missed the press conference due to illness.

Michael O'Neill (Northern Ireland): "This is as tough a game as we'll get at any point in the tournament, but the prize is massive – the potential to go to the round of 16. If we can take something from the game – three points or one – we would be in a very strong position. [We must] approach the game in a similar fashion as we did against Ukraine.

[The players] are really up for it. There's a real sense of excitement and they've recovered well. I think you go into the game full of confidence given the level of performance and the result against Ukraine."
