Albania Euro 2024 Fixtures: Dates, Venues and Game Analysis

Published: 16:00, 19 June 2024

Albania are among the so-called minnows at Euro 2024 but have won plenty of fans so far, with their all-action style giving them a real chance of qualification. What are their fixtures?

Group B is being labelled by many as the Group of Death at Euro 2024, and unfortunately for Albania they are the odd one out. All three of Albania’s opponents have history at major tournaments, including defending European champions Italy. There are also three-time European champions Spain, who are looking to become the record-holders. And finally, Croatia, who have reached a World Cup final and semi-final within the past six years. Can Albania cause an upset?

Group B – Matchweek One

Group B
Date Fixture Ground
15/06 Italy vs Albania (8pm) BVB Stadion Dortmund, Dortmund
*All times BST

As you’d expect, Albania’s history against Italy has been incredibly one-sided. These two nations have faced off four times, with Italy winning all four. Albania didn’t even manage to score in the first three games.
