Time: 15:00 CET/9:00 EDT | Location: Puskas Arena, Budapest

With their lives on the line in the vaunted group of death, Hungary plays host to tournament favorites France. After barely inching past Germany earlier in the week, Kylian Mbappe, Benjamin Pavard, and the rest of Les Bleus will be itching for a more decisive result this time around. With a win, France will set themselves up for a birth in the knockout rounds while a draw (or worse) could set up a tense final group stage match next week.

Time: 18:00 CET/12:00 EDT | Location: Football Arena Munich, Munich

Germany has the awkward honor of being the “visiting” team in their national stadium when they face Bruno Fernandes and Portugal in Saturday's midday match. After falling to France in a tight 1-0 result, Die Mannschaft will be desperate for a victory when they face a Portugal side that was slow to start but quick to finish in their 3-0 win over Hungary last week.

Time: 21:00 CET/3:00 EDT | Location: La Cartuja Stadium, Sevilla

The Seville vs. Sevilla linguistic battle soldiers on for another day as Spain plays host to Wojciech Szczesny and Poland in Saturday's capper. After being held in check by Sweden last week, this is a must-win for Sergio Busquets and La Furia Roja. Poland fell to Slovakia in their first match but after watching Hamsik and friends slip up against Sweden, a victory today would put the Poles in a prime position to advance to the group stage.
