Germany vs. Italy
A duel of titans; Both teams always emerge from the rubble in these sorts of competitions, and one of them ends up going to the finals or winning the tournament.
Italy has played so well lately. The game against England was extraordinary. They really went out looking for the win and fighting up to the last minute on a deserved quarter final win. Pirlo came out stating that the Germans have never beaten them in history in these sorts of competitions, and that they are a young and inexperienced team that does not have the audacity to win tonight.
The latter part is factually true, and may be the cause of the German demise tonight. Players such a Reus and Boateng need PLENTY of tournament experience to become part of the German starting eleven, but its not Joachim´s fault. The team is simply regrouping and recovering from letting go of older players and bringing the new batch of youngsters that will definitely prove themselves in the future, but perhaps not tonight. Italy looks strong to win this one.
The experience of the blue squad teamed up with an offensive coach that does not like the catenaccio style and goes all out for an orderly win seems likely to prove a winner in tonight´s game. Germany simply does not have the individual talent and collective experience for a game of tonight´s caliber. Take the 4.5 Italy to win on bet365 free bet offer; I will personally bet on Italy to qualify.
