Next top duel at the quarter finals
Already at the first round at the KO phase there has been a real top duel at the EURO 2016, when Italy met Spain. There is waiting another though rival for the Conte eleven at the quarter finals, they have to play against the current world champion Germany. Kick-off on the 2nd July is at 9 p.m..
Current performance of Germany
The world champion from 2014 is also in a good shape at the EURO this year. There are hardly any weaknesses to find at the team from Joachim Löw not only at the defence also at the offensive play they are one of the bests at the competition. One proof for that: Germany is the only team that still has no goal from the other side. Jointly responsible for this is also goal keeper Manuel Neuer who gives his team safety. At the offensive player Joachim Löw currently is trusting Mario Gomez at the moment. At the first match against Northern Ireland Mario Götze has been the “false nine” at the front. Gomez already has scored two goals in this tournament. Fans and also the trainer are a little bit worried about the fitness of Jerome Boateng. Even when he was fit for the eighth finals against Slovakia and even scored a goal, his little injury still causes trouble. Against Slovakia they have shown their ambition to win and didn’t let their rivals any chance. In the end they have won the match with a score of 3:0. However, with Italy there is waiting a rival who is tougher.
Current performance of Italy
It seems as if Italy found back on the track again. At the group stage the performance of the eleven of Antonio Conte varied. The first match against Belgium has been surprisingly won with a score of 2:0. Also against Sweden they have scored a goal and won with a score of 1:0. However the last match of the group stage has been lost against Ireland with a score of 0:1. It is also to say that at this match the b-eleven has played. The performance at the eighth final against Spain has been impressing. Italy has been the better team and has given them hardly any chance. In the end they have won this match deserved with a score of 2:0. This was also because of a masterly tactic performance of Antonio Conte. They also will need that brightness against Germany. One good sign for Italy: in the past they always have been better than Germany at big tournaments if you think of the world championship in 2006 when they have won after the extra time with a score of 2:0 against Germany. At the final rounds of the EURO in 2012 at the Ukraine and Poland they have also won with a score of 2:1. Mario Balotelli has scored twice. The attacking player isn’t in the squad this year. However but a comeback of Antonio Candreva seems possible because he suffered from an injury lately.
Betting tip for this match
In this match both trainers can draw on unlimited resources. Germany has the better single players while Italy was able to convince with the better tactic and their fast switching of the game. We believe in a close result that will be decided by extra time or by penalties. Our tip: tip x.
