The 2012 Euro Cup is right down to the ultimate four teams, then when Italy and Germany square off Thursday afternoon they'll be playing to face the winner from the Spain vs. Portugal game which takes place later today.
Recent history between both of these teams favors Italy, but Germany doesn't worry about the past, they are dedicated to the overall game taking place.
The German squad have never beaten Italy in a competitive match.
"We can't reverse time, ignore regarding it, days gone by doesn't play a role within our planning," said German Coach Joachim Loew. "Another stat is always that Germany hasn't won against Italy here inside a major tournament, but just what exactly?"
Las Vegas odds makers must feel it's time for Germany to win as they are the favorite at -135. The Over/Under number is 2.5.
This game is going to be a tricky, hard fought match. My buddies are telling me that I am going the wrong manner for this match, but here it is anyways!
Pick - Italy
