Germany host Italy on matchday 4 of the UEFA Nations League 2022-23 at Borussia Park in Monchengladbach in the early hours of Wednesday, June 15. The match will kick-off at 12:15 AM IST (Indian Standard Time).
With his attackers misfiring, Germany head coach Hansi Flick may look to make a host of changes against Italy, meaning that Leroy Sane and Thomas Muller could come back in the team. Meanwhile, a certain Serge Gnabry is still recovering from a calf problem and will likely miss the fixture alongside Marco Reus.

Germany vs Italy head to head
The Germany vs Italy head-to-head record is dominated by the latter, who have won 15 of their 36 meetings against the former. Germany have won only nine matches while 12 games have ended without a winner.
However, despite the strong record, Italy haven’t defeated Germany since their 2-1 win in the 2012 UEFA Euro semi-final clash.
Since then, the two teams have played a total of five matches where Germany have won twice and three games have been drawn.

Despite lacking the edge in the final third, Germany have plenty of firepower to trouble the Italian defence that will miss two of their best defenders in Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci.
Italy are transitioning from one generation to the next and judging by the looks of things, performances have been bleak. Hence, it comes as no surprise that Germany are the odds-on favourites for this contest.
