We are inching closer to the Euro Finals and we get a treat with two traditional football powers in Germany and Italy colliding. There is no surprise that Germany is in this position but despite their history Italy pulled off a pretty big upset in beating Spain. Not Iceland big but still a surprise.
Germany advances to the quarterfinals of the Euro off a convincing win over Slovakia, 3-0. Thus far they have played exactly to form save a draw against Poland. They might be considered the odds on favourite to win it all now.
Against the Slovaks they were in complete control from the get go. They were attacking all game long and even though a 3-0 score looks dominating enough they probably could have won by even more.
Germany is leading all nations in pass completion and possession for the tournament so if you are going to beat them you have to take advantage of the few opportunities they allow. You have to score because they are averaging 2 goals per game.
Germany is going to be very tough to beat. They are tough and talented and playing in really fine form at the moment. It will be an interesting challenge to see how they attack Italy, a very strong defensive squad.
The Italians are one of soccer’s most respected nations but they were not given much of a shot of beating Spain in their round of 16 match. They they went out and beat Las Rojas 2-0. It was impressive.
The reason the Italians were doubted was because they do not have a ton of scoring talent. Their defense may be second to none in the tournament though and as they showed against Spain they can score enough.
As good as Spain is at attacking, Germany is the more complete team. The last time these two nations met Italy was beaten 4-1 and that kind of outcome could easily happen again if the Germans are at their peak.
Ital’s strategy will likely be to play their usual brand of rugged defense and hope that Germany has enough lapses that they can steal the game. Goalkeeper Buffon will definitely be tested and could be the difference.
Free Germany vs. Italy Euro 2016 Prediction:
The Germans are probably the most intimidating team in the Euro. Sure they are coming off their World Cup win but they also seem to be the most adaptable team and they are able to really strike even when they have just a few chances.
The Azzurri know who they are and will be tested to maintain their poise in this one. They are so strong defensively that the game is not likely to get away from them but their ability to read the chances they do get will be critical.
4* Free Euro 2016 Betting Pick: Germany ML
I love backing underdogs and winning big but Germany is great value when you can double your money. They have an amazing ability to make you feel like you are losing even when the score is even and that weighs on teams.
I think that is the way this one will play out. Look for Germany to carry the action early and make Italy feel like they are down when they are not. When Italy shows even a hint of defensive indifference the Germans will strike.
Euro 2016 Free Score Prediction: Germany 3 – Italy 1
