It’s a big game for…

Andrea Belotti: The 22-year-old striker plays alongside Joe Hart at Torino and comes into this match in fantastic form, having scored four goals in his last two matches including a double in Italy’s win against Liechtenstein last Saturday. He could cement a position as starting forward with another impressive performance under new manager Giampiero Ventura.

Best stat…

It has been five matches and four months since Germany last conceded a goal, coming in a devastating 2-0 loss to hosts France in the Euro 2016 semi-final. Since then, they have scored 18 goals, with eight of those coming in the last match against San Marino.

Remember when…

Germany beat Italy on penalties at this summer’s European Championships in France after extra time with the scores level at 1-1. This was the first time Germany had won against the Azzurri at a major tournament in nine attempts. Eighteen penalties were needed to settle the game, as left-back Jonas Hector scored the decisive final spot-kick.

Player to watch…

Joshua Kimmich: The Bayern Munich prodigy has come on leaps and bounds since moving to the club in the summer of 2015. Pep Guardiola believed him to be a future world-class player and he is now a more regular fixture in the starting XI under Carlo Ancelotti.

The versatile 21-year-old has developed a ruthlessness in front of goal to his game this season, scoring seven times in all competitions already.
