Incredibly, despite the fact Germany has won 4 World Cups and 3 European Championships, they have a terrible record when it comes to playing the Italians. In fact, they have never beaten their opponents in a competitive game at a major tournament, which is astonishing considering how many good German teams there have been over the years.
But the Germans shouldn’t fear anybody in this tournament. The World Champions were favorites from the offset, and not much has changed. Their performances have been steady and immaculate. They’ve not put a foot wrong and they’ve disposed of opponents will relative ease, including routing Slovakia in their last 16 game.
However, Italy will certainly need to be respected. They’ve showed that they are one of the most difficult teams to break down this tournament, thanks in no small part to manager Antonio Conte. He has his team well-prepped, as was shown in their 2-0 win over Spain, in which beforehand they were considered to be second favorites. How the pundits were wrong!
This is the toughest game to call out of all of them. The fact that Italy has the Indian sign over Germany could signal an upset. But this is surely as far as the Italian team can go? We’ll just have to wait and see!
