Italy v Austria live stream, BBC One, Saturday 26 June, 8pm BST

Impressive Italy head to Wembley as huge favourites to progress against Austria, but Franco Foda’s side showed signs of their ability in their final group game.

The Azzurri ended the group stage as many peoples’ tips to go on and win Euro 2020 after recording three wins from three against Turkey, Switzerland and Wales without conceding.

Roberto Mancini’s side are on a national record-equalling run of 30 games without defeat in all competitions, which includes wins in their last 11 without letting in a single goal.

They are an impressively slick football machine, but the last 16 sees them leave the home comforts of Rome for the first time in the tournament.

After smashing the Turks and Swiss 3-0, Mancini changed eight players for the final game against Wales, and he has already used 25 of the 26 players in his squad.

The Italians are therefore fresh and firing, and there have been some standout individual performances already, with Leonardo Spinazzola excelling against Turkey, Manuel Locatelli bagging two superb goals against the Swiss and Marco Verratti turning heads on his return from injury against Wales.

Captain Giorgio Chiellini and defender Alessandro Florenzi are likely to miss out through injury, but there is otherwise healthy competition for places across the squad.

Austria were poor in their first two Group C games as they beat North Macedonia 3-1 and lost 2-0 to the Netherlands.

But a switch to a more positive 4-3-3 formation for their final game against Ukraine reaped rewards as they won 1-0 and put in a dominant display.

There’s still little doubt they will be big underdogs against the Italians, but midfielder Marcel Sabitzer believes.

“If we are focused on the things we are good at, we can make things difficult for them. We know they are favourites and will have more of the ball, but we will do our best.”

Kick-off is at 8pm BST and the game is being shown on BBC One. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch an Italy v Austria live stream from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for any Euro 2020 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 still want to catch Harry Kane's in-swinging corners 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:
