    Six Juventus players are set to line up for their respective nations on a busy night of international action

    Six Bianconeri are preparing to take to the field today for their respective countries’ final international fixtures of the current break.

    In San Marino, Stephan Lichtsteiner’s Switzerland will be aiming to get their first points on the board after losing both of their opening Euro 2016 qualification Group E games against England and Slovenia.

    They will, however, take heart from an improved performance last time out in Maribor and hope they can rediscover their goalscoring edge when they take on the group minnows in Serravalle tonight.

    Following Saturday’s 2-1 win over Portugal, Patrice Evra and Paul Pogba’s France are once again in friendly action, this time squaring up with Armenia in Yerevan.

    On paper it looks to be a daunting prospect for the hosts, who are without a win in their last five encounters, while Didier Deschamps’ Les Bleus continue to build on last summer’s impressive World Cup quarter-final finish.

    Over in Chile, La Roja welcome Bolivia to Antofagasta for an all South American friendly. Arturo Vidal, who featured for 90 minutes in their weekend win over Peru, and his team-mates are undefeated on home soil in two years and will be confident of extending that run against a Bolivian side whose last away win came in 2007.

    World Cup runners-up Argentina complete their Asian tour with an exhibition match in Hong Kong, where Roberto Pereyra will be expecting to feature once again after completing 76 minutes in the weekend’s defeat to Brazil.

    Kingsley Coman's France Under-21 side round off a busy night of Bianconeri international action.

    After seizing the advantage over Sweden in last week’s 2-0 first leg triumph, Coman’s Les Bleuets will be hoping to get over the line when they take to the field for this evening’s decisive Euro 2015 qualification leg in Halmstad.

    Elsewhere, Alvaro Morata's Spain Under-21 side also face a Euro 2015 qualifier against Serbia in Cadiz this evening. Following last week's goalless draw in Jagodina, La Rojita are hoping to book their place at next year's tournament but will have to do so without the starlet who is suspended for tonight's second-leg clash.

    Today's action:

    Hong Kong v Argentina (friendly), 13.00 CET – Pereyra.

    Sweden U21 v France U21 (Euro 2015 qualifier), 20.00 CET – Coman.

    Armenia v France (friendly), 20.45 CET – Evra, Pogba.

    San Marino v Switzerland (Euro 2016 qualifier), 20.45 CET – Lichtsteiner.
