These teams are having to take the longer route to Germany. Both finished second in their in their Euro 2024 qualifying groups. 

Dragons manager Rob Page has tried to breathe new life into his squad following a poor World Cup and the retirement of the legendary Gareth Bale. Skipper Aaron Ramsey is back in the squad but doesn't start. Inter Miami midfielder Robert Taylor picked up an injury and is out of the Finland squad. Middlesbrough forward Marcus Forss is not fit enough to play either.

Back in 2009, Jari Litmanen helped send Welsh football into the international abyss. Despite that, it is the hosts who have the better head-to-head record. They have six wins compared to the visitor’s four, with five draws between the sides.

Here's how they line up:

Wales: Ward; Mepham, Rodon, B. Davies; Roberts, Ampadu, J. James, Williams; Wilson, Brooks, Johnson

Finland: Hradecky; Alho, Tenho, Ivanov, Peltola; Schuller, Kamara Lod, Hakans; Pohjanpalo, Pukki

This is going to be a tight and tense affair. Read on to find out how you can catch it all. After the international break, make sure you don’t miss any of the EPL action by checking out how to watch Premier League live streams.
