Both teams will be fielding experienced players from teams like Bayern Munich and Juventus, the two major powers in the Germany and Italy respectively, in a game that will provide preparation for the forthcoming European Championships that take place in France in June.
The Germans will hope Arsenal’s superstar playmaker Mesut Ozil and Manchester United’s midfield general Bastian Schweinsteiger will be on form to disrupt the Italians’ resolute midfield and defense. Manuel Neuer will be between the sticks as always.
The Italians will be difficult to score against with their handsome goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon between the posts. The veteran hasn’t lost any of his agility in his old age and is still one of the best keepers in the world.
The Germans were a shambles against England in the second half. After racing to a 2-0 lead, they ended up collapsing 3-2 in Berlin on Mar 26. They will need to defend better if they want to get anything from this game.
Italy, who are a generous 16-1 shot to win Euro 2016, were unlucky to tie their game 1-1 against Spain on Mar. 24, having been the more dominate team throughout.
Italy holds the most wins against the Germans in international soccer in the head-to-head, with 15 wins to Germany’s 7. It may be 16 after the 90 minutes here.
