Germany vs Italy Team News

Germany coach Joachim Low has no fresh injury worries ahead of the Italy game and he is likely to field the same starting XI that defeated Slovakia. Jerome Boateng is fit and he should keep his place in the starting line-up. Fellow Bayern Munich defender Mats Hummels is one yellow card away from suspension. Mario Gomez scored in the 3-0 win over Slovakia and he should keep his place in the starting line-up.

Injured: None

Doubtful: None

Suspended: None

Thiago Motta misses the match through suspension, while Daniele De Rossi picked up a knock against Spain and he faces the race against clock to be fit for the quarter-final. Antonio Candreva missed the Spain clash with injury and he is a major doubt. Manchester United full back Matteo Darmian is widely expected to return to the starting line-up. Eder and Pelle should be deployed up front in the 3-5-2 formation.

Injured: None

Doubtful: Daniele De Rossi (106/18), Antonio Candreva (40/4)

Suspended: Thiago Motta (30/1)

Quick Facts

  • Germany are after their first ever win over Italy at the major tournaments
  • Die Manschaft are eyeing their fifth consecutive clean sheet at Euro 2016 finals
  • Under 2.5 goals were scored in each of Italy’s last four games at Euro 2016
  • Azzurri had seven shots on goal in the 2-0 win over Spain
  • Germany suffered only one loss in previous nine games at Euro finals

Germany vs Italy Prediction

Germany and Italy, the two fierce rivals, face each other at Stade Matmut-Atlantique in the Euro 2016 quarter-finals. Both teams have been impressive at the back at the tournament in France and there is every chance we will see a low-scoring match in Bordeaux. Both Germany and Italy are likely to rely on their defences in Saturday’s clash and, taking everything into account, one goal should separate the two teams this time out. Italy do not suit Germany and it remains to be seen if Joachim Low’s team are capable of beating the Azzurri for the first time ever at the Euro finals.

Betting Tip: Under 2.5 goals

Odds: 1.50 (1/2) @Unibet
