How to watch Euro 2016, Day 19: Time, TV schedule and streaming options

Germany take on Italy in Saturday's mouthwatering Euro 2016 quarterfinal.

Witters Sport-USA TODAY Sports

The third Euro 2016 quarterfinal is arguably the most exciting of the lot, as Germany go head-to-head with Italy in a true clash of the footballing titans (8 p.m. BST, 3 p.m. ET). Germany certainly head into the match as favourites, with Joachim Löw's side having comfortably more individual quality in their ranks. However, Italy's wily coach Antonio Conte has proven more than adept at masterminding wins over superior sides, and could well do the same again here. Italy also have history on their side: they've never lost to Germany in a competitive match.

Are there any United players in action?

Two: Matteo Darmian (Italy) and Bastian Schweinsteiger (Germany), though both look likely to start from the bench.

Other United connections?

Manchester United have a fairly disappointing history when it comes to these two fine footballing nations. Carlo Sartori, who moved to Manchester as a child, was the first Italian to ever play for United back in 1968, and went on to make 56 appearances for the club. However, he was followed up by Massimo Taibi, Giuseppe Rossi and Federico Macheda, who all failed to impress.

Amazingly, Schweinsteiger is the first German to ever play for United's first team. His compatriot Ron-Robert Zieler -- now of Leicester City -- was once on United's books, though he never made an appearance. He was in the running to make the Germany squad for the Euros, though eventually lost out to Bayer Leverkusen's young shot-stopper Bernd Leno.

How can I catch the action?

For those in the UK, the game can be found on the BBC. For those in the States, you can, as ever, catch all of the action on ESPN. These options both come with their respective online services. For all other locations check out this handy page from Live Soccer TV.
