Germany and Argentina have met in three FIFA World Cup finals. After losing 3-2 in Mexico in 1986, Die Mannschaft triumphed in Italy in 1990 and Brazil in 2014, on both occasions by a 1-0 scoreline.

The two nations have played each other 22 times. So far it's 10 wins for Argentina, eight for Germany and four draws.

This is Germany's first meeting with La Albiceleste since September 2014. Two months after winning the World Cup final in Rio de Janeiro thanks to Mario Götze's extra-time stunner, Löw's men suffered a 4-2 friendly defeat in Düsseldorf.
