With one matchday left in the Euro 2024 group stage, here we take a look at what the eight Borussia Dortmund players involved at the tournament need to qualify for the round of 16.

Three teams have already qualified for the Euro 2024 round of 16, with hosts Germany set to be joined by Spain and Portugal in the knockout stage. 13 spots area still up for grabs, with the top two teams from each group and the four best third placed teams earning qualification to the last 16.

Group A

Germany are already through to the round of 16 and only need a point against Switzerland on Sunday to secure top spot. The Borussia Dortmund trio of Niclas Füllkrug, Nico Schlotterbeck, and Emre Can will likely be joined by Gregor Kobel and Switzerland in the round of 16.

Switzerland have four points after two games, and their goal difference advantage over Scotland means that they will likely finish in the top two. Even if they somehow drop down to third place, Murat Yakin’s side will likely qualify for the round of 16. Scotland and Hungary will also battle it out on Sunday with the hopes of finishing third in Group A.

Group D

Regarded as the group of death, Group D has produced some enthralling moments and matches already. The Netherlands have two Borussia Dortmund players in their squad - Donyell Malen and Ian Maatsen - and are sitting at the top of Group D ahead of their meeting with the Marcel Sabitzer-led Austria.

The Dutch find themselves level on points with France, and Austria are a point behind in third place. Ralf Rangnick’s side defeated Poland on matchday two to boost their hopes of qualifying for the round of 16. And a draw against the Netherlands is likely to be enough to help them finish as one of the four best third placed teams.

France will face Poland on matchday three and will fancy their chances of pipping the Netherlands to top spot.

Group F

Despite losing to Portugal on Saturday, Salih Özcan and Turkey are still second in Group F and will fancy their chances of qualifying for the knockout stage.

Turkey will face Czechia in their final group stage game, and even a draw should be enough to help them secure their place in the round of 16. Portugal have six points to their name and are already through, while both Czechia and Georgia are on one point.

Elsewhere, Italy are well placed to join Spain in the round of 16 from Group B. However, Croatia face a must-win game against Italy as they look to salvage their campaign. Things are very tight in Group E, with all four teams locked on three points. England are the favourites in Group C, but face a tricky test against Slovenia in their bid to secure qualification to the knockout stage.
