The highest profile of the Euro 2020 quarter-finals takes place tonight in Munich as the world’s top-ranked team take on the most impressive of the tournament so far.
Both Belgium and Italy have won their last 14 matches in a row, a record-equaling run dating back throughout the qualifiers and the Finals which will fall tonight.
That record is even more impressive for the Azzurri, who are unbeaten in 31 games, a feat never before achieved by the national team.
Belgium are sweating over the fitness of both Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard, with head coach Roberto Martinez set to make late calls on the pair. Italy captain Giorgio Chiellini is another doubt.
The winner will face the victory between Switzerland and Spain in the semi-finals, the identity of which will be clear before kick-off.
