The 2012 Euro Cup is into a final four teams, so when Italy and Germany square off Thursday afternoon they will be playing to face the winner with the Spain vs. Portugal game which takes place later today.
Recent history between those two teams favors Italy, but Germany doesn't love earlier times, they may be focused on the action taking place.
The German squad have never beaten Italy inside a competitive match.
"We can't turn back time, ignore over it, the past doesn't play a role inside our planning," said German Coach Joachim Loew. "Another stat is Germany never won against Italy in a major tournament, but precisely check here what?"
Las Vegas odds makers must feel it's time for Germany to win as they are the favored at -135. The Over/Under number is 2.5.
This game will likely be a tricky, hard fought match. My buddies are telling me that I am going the wrong method about this match, but here it is anyways!
Pick - Italy
