The 2022-23 Nations League is moving towards the end of the group stage.  The competition with teams fighting for promotion and relegation, if not a spot in the finals.

From the 55 teams divided into four leagues, Leagues A, B and C have 16 teams. Groups of four each while League D has the remaining seven teams two groups. One containing three teams.

All kick-off times 20:45 CET unless stated

Hungary and Germany vying for finals berth
Highlights: Hungary 1-1 Germany
Highlights: Hungary 1-1 Germany
Both teams come into this game on the back of resounding victories in their most recent group games: Germany cruised to a 5-2 win over a youthful Italy, while Hungary stunned EURO 2020 finalists England with a hugely impressive 4-0 triumph at Molineux.

Another win for Group A3 leaders Hungary in Leipzig could book their place at next year’s finals – provided Italy fail to beat England. Victory for Hansi Flick’s team, currently in second place, would leave Die Mannschaft in pole position for a first ever finals tournament spot.

Key stat: Only Turkey’s Serdar Dursun has registered more attempts on target in this season’s tournament than Hungary forward Roland Sallai (eight).

Relegation a reality for England
Highlights: England 0-0 Italy
Highlights: England 0-0 Italy
England’s defeat by Hungary in June was the Three Lions’ heaviest home loss since 1928 and extended their winless run to four matches – their longest barren spell since 2014 – making relegation from the top tier a real possibility.

Italy currently occupy third place but remain just two points behind leaders Hungary, whom they beat 2-1 on home soil. The Azzurri, victors in the third-place play-off in 2021, will be eager to banish memories of their 5-2 reverse in Mönchengladbach by claiming a potentially crucial victory.

Key stat: England had not conceded more than once in 25 games prior to their 4-0 defeat by Hungary.
