Germany face surprise Group A3 leaders Hungary in Leipzig on Friday knowing that a win will send them top with one round to go.
The Magyars enjoyed a stunning start to their Nations League campaign in June, picking up seven points from four games in a fiercely competitive group.
Marco Rossi’s side beat England twice and finished their summer internationals in astonishing style by hammering Gareth Southgate’s side 4-0 at Molineux.
They also held Germany to a 1-1 draw, their only defeat coming away to Euro 2020 winners Italy.
Despite Hungary's impressive form, the Germans will head into this as big favourites after going 13 matches unbeaten under boss Hansi Flick.
There has been a worrying trend in recent games for the former Bayern Munich manager, though – four of Germany’s last five games have ended in a 1-1 draw.
That was the result they picked up against Italy, England and Hungary in June, before thrashing the Azzurri 5-2 at home.
Hungary boast a surprisingly good record in Germany, with two wins, two draws and one defeat.
And they restricted their illustrious opponents to just one shot on target last time out, underlining their reputation as an awkward opponent for big teams after holding France and Germany to draws at Euro 2020 last summer.
With the World Cup 2022 just around the corner, Germany will be hoping to return to top form as soon as possible.
Flick’s Germany World Cup 2022 squad (opens in new tab) is taking shape, but he’s still open to new ideas – Southampton defender Armel Bella-Kotchap earned his first call-up to the squad this month.
Marco Reus didn’t make the cut because of injury, but Germany otherwise have a strong group available.
Hungary say goodbye to captain Adam Szalai this week, after the 34-year-old announced he will retire from international football following the conclusion of the Nations League games.
His international career has spanned 13 years, in which he’s scored 25 goals in 84 caps.
Slovenia's Slavko Vincic will be the referee for Germany vs Hungary.
Germany vs Hungary is being played at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig.
Italy host England at the same time on Friday.
Next up, Germany travel to England and Hungary host Italy on Monday 26 September, both 7.45pm kick-offs.
Kick-off is at 7.45pm BST on Friday September 22 and is being shown by Premier Sports 1 in the UK. See below for international broadcast options.
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
