The Italians and Germans are set to collide in another edition in one of the most famous European derbies.
At 9PM local time, the Azzurri will take on Die Mannschaft in the Quarterfinals of Euro 2016.
Daniele De Rossi has been unable to fully recover for the clash this evening and will start from the bench. Marco Parolo will drift back into the holding midfielder spot where he played most of this season for Lazio.
Juventus’ Stefano Sturaro will slide into an attacking midfielder role alongside Giaccherini and will provide cover to Parolo.

Italy (3-5-2): Buffon (C), Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini, Florenzi, Sturaro, Parolo, Giaccherini, De Sciglio, Eder, Pellè. Coach: Conte
Germany (4-2-3-1): Neuer (C), Kimmich, Boateng, Hummels, Hector, Kroos, Khedira, Muller, Ozil, Draxler, Gomez. Coach: Low
