Spain v Germany: Euro 2024 quarter-finals – live | Euro 2024

Key events

Big interview: As a Spain international with a German wife who has never played club football in his home country and plies his trade at RB Leipzig, Dani Olmo is as well placed as anyone to talk about today’s big game. Sid Lowe sat down with the midfielder in Donaueschingen for a chat…

Early team news

With his squad free of suspensions and injuries, Spain coach Luis de la Fuente is expected to field a team unchanged from the one that came back from behind to beat Georgia last time out. However, it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see Dani Olmo replace Pedri with Mikel Merino in midfield.

Germany coach Julian Nagelsmann is in a dilemma now that Jonathan Tah is back from suspension. He will have to decide whether to bench his first-choice centre-back at the expense of Nico Schlotterbeck, who performed superbly in the Bayer Leverkusen player’s absence. Florian Wirtz was also on the bench for the win over Denmark and could return tonight at the expense of Leroy Sane.
