Germany will be looking for revenge when they come up against Slovakia in the round of 16 on Sunday after Jan Kozak's team recorded a 3-1 win during a pre-tournament friendly on 29 May. Joachim Low's team are one of the favourites to win the tournament, and despite missing a host of chances against Northern Ireland in their last group game, they looked to be at their attacking best with Mesut Ozil and Toni Kroos pulling the strings from midfield.

The world champions will be boosted by the return of Jerome Boateng to training after he sat out most of the week with a calf injury. Germany will face the winners of the game between Italy and Spain if they beat the Slovakians, but could be without Boateng, Ozil and Sami Khedira, who are all one booking away from a one-game suspension. Low has indicated that he will make changes and could omit one of the three from the squad to protect them for the latter stages of the tournament.

Slovakia, on the other hand, will take confidence from their recent win over Germany, but will be aware that it is a different proposition to beat them during a tournament. Kozak is confident that they can overcome the 2014 World Cup winners if they play as a team and believes that every team has a weakness and is looking to find and exploit it when they meet in Lens.

Germany lead the head-to-head between the two nations 7-3, with their latest encounter coming on 29 May this year which the Slovakians won 3-1. It was a pre-tournament friendly, which Low's team will be keen to avenge.

What manager's say

Joachim Low (Germany): Slovakia are a different opponent to Northern Ireland. I think they're a lot stronger. We were beaten by them at the end of May so we're aware they have great quality and are good defensively. We won't have as much space as we did against Northern Ireland and that's why I'm considering one or two changes. I think we'll cope better than England did in the group stage.

In terms of taking chances I wasn't satisfied against Northern Ireland and nor were the players. We're all aware that we can't waste these opportunities against upcoming opponents as we simply won't have as many anymore.

Jan Kozak (Slovakia):Germany is a great challenge for us. However, I don't think the pressure Germany put us under will be as intense as England did in our last game. If we want to be successful again, we need to play as a team. Yes, they are a strong side, but every opponent has weaknesses. We will try to exploit those.

They are world champions and a top-quality team. But we have prepared thoroughly and have already been involved in difficult matches during qualifying. We won against Spain, a victory which helped us get here.
