Euro 2016 Germany v Slovakia preview: Boateng returns for Germany
Germany are yet to concede a goal in this tournament and the return of the centre-back will make things even more difficult for Slovakia.
HOW THEY QUALIFIED

Germany topped their group but looked a lot more solid at the back than they did going forward. They are still yet to concede at Euro 2016.

Slovakia's win over Russia and draw against England were enough to ensure they went through despite finishing third in Group B.

SHOCK POTENTIAL

Not a lot. The last goals Germany conceded were actually against last 16 opponents Slovakia. The Slovaks beat an experimental Germany side 3-1 less than a month ago but this is likely to be a very different story.
OUR PREDICTION

Germany will surely emerge triumphant.

WHO THE WINNER PLAYS NEXT

Next up will be the winner of Italy's clash with Spain.
WHEN DOES GERMANY V SLOVAKIA KICK OFF? WHERE IS IT BEING PLAYED?

It kicks off at 17:00 (BST) at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy near Lille.

HOW CAN I WATCH IT ON TV?

It will be live on ITV 1, with coverage starting at 16:30.
TEAM NEWS

Germany centre back Jerome Boateng is expected to start after overcoming the calf injury that saw him substituted against Northern Ireland.

Slovakia defender Dusan Svento and midfielder Robert Mak have been battling injuries and it remains to be seen whether the pair will start.
MANAGER QUOTES

Joachim Low, Germany coach: "We lost to Slovakia at the end of May, so we know what's coming

Jan Kozak, Slovakia coach: "We had wanted to play against big quality, so we have it."

PLAYER'S PERSPECTIVE

Manuel Neuer, Germany: "Slovakia are deservedly in the last 16, but a ­decisive victory for us would really push us on. It’s a different type of pressure in the knockout rounds compared to the group stage but for me personally, nothing changes. We want to be successful. We are not out to break records."

Peter Pekarík, Slovakia: "It´s a beautiful success for Slovakian football that we've progressed to the last 16 of an international tournament. So it’s very special and great for us, and I hope we won’t say goodbye to the tournament tomorrow - we will do our best to give the opponents a hard time and try to progress.”
MATCH FACTS

Germany have won seven of their 10 encounters with Slovakia (L3) including their two competitive head-to-heads back in the EURO 2008 qualifiers (6 goals scored, 2 conceded).
However, their most recent fixture ended in a 3-1 victory for Slovakia last month. Slovakia scored with three of their four shots on target in that game.
The last time Germany failed to make it out of the group stages of a major tournament was at EURO 2004. Since then, they’ve made the last four at every single major competition.
Germany have won 13 of their last 16 games at major tournaments, drawing two and losing one (1-2 v Italy in the EURO 2012 semi-finals).
Only one of Germany’s 44 shots in their last two games has found the back of the net.
Germany haven’t conceded a single goal so far at EURO 2016, the only team to do so alongside Poland. The last time they kept three clean sheets in all their group games at a major tournament was at EURO 1996, a tournament they eventually won.
This will be Germany’s second game at Stade Pierre-Mauroy in this year’s tournament. The first one was a 2-0 win against Ukraine. Similarly, Slovakia’s only previous game at Pierre-Mauroy saw them beat Russia 2-1 in this year’s group stages.
Germany have averaged 71.9% possession over their first three games, the highest ratio so far at EURO 2016.
Slovakia have reached the knockout stages of a major tournament for the second time in as many participations (World Cup 2010, EURO 2016). In 2010, they were eliminated in the Last 16 by the Netherlands (1-2).
Slovakia have won only two of their seven games at major tournaments (3-2 v Italy at World Cup 2010, 2-1 v Russia at EURO 2016).
Slovakia have only kept one clean sheet in seven games at major tournaments, it was in their last outing against England (0-0).
Thomas Müller hasn’t scored a single goal in eight games at the EURO. He has 10 goals in 13 World Cup games.
Only Jürgen Klinsmann has scored more goals (5) than Mario Gomez (4) for Germany at the EURO.
Bastian Schweinsteiger has played in 35 games at major tournaments. Only Miroslav Klose (37) and Lothar Matthäus (36) have featured more times at the World Cup and European Championships for Germany.
Marek Hamsik is directly involved in four goals in his last four competitive games with Slovakia (3 goals, 1 assist). He’s the only player along with Martin Skrtel and Jan Durica to have featured in all seven of Slovakia’s games at major tournaments.
23 of Slovakia’s 26 attempts at EURO 2016 have seen Hamsik, Vladimir Weiss or Robert Mak involved, either as the shot taker or shot assister.
