Nations League Liveblog: Italy v Portugal

Join us for all the build-up and action as it happens from Italy’s crucial Nations League meeting with Portugal at a sold out San Siro.

It kicks off at 19.45 GMT and is the Azzurri’s last match in the group stage.

Portugal will mathematically win the group and go through to the Final Four with at least a point in Milan this evening.

If Italy win, then they must hope Poland beat Portugal in Tuesday’s last game.

However, an Italian victory by two clear goals means they can top the group even if Portugal draw with Poland.

The Nazionale are unbeaten at San Siro, winning 31 here and drawing 12, but the last four have been stalemates.

In fact, Italy have drawn their last five home fixtures, the longest winless streak in the Peninsula since 1923-25.

Enthusiasm is running high, as it's sold out with over 73,000 tickets snapped up.
