The 2012 Euro Cup is right down to the last four teams, so when Italy and Germany square off Thursday afternoon they'll be playing to face the winner in the Spain vs. Portugal game which takes place later today.
Recent history between these two teams favors Italy, but Germany doesn't care about earlier times, these are devoted to the overall game at hand.
The German squad have never beaten Italy in the competitive match.
"We can't turn back time, just click here forget about about it, days gone by doesn't play a role inside our planning," said German Coach Joachim Loew. "Another stat is that Germany has not won against Italy in a major tournament, but just what exactly?"
Las Vegas odds makers must feel it's the perfect time for Germany to win as these are the favourite at -135. The Over/Under number is 2.5.
This game will be a tough, hard fought match. My buddies are telling me that I am going the wrong manner about this match, but here it is anyways!
Pick - Italy
