Euro 2016 Tips // Germany vs Italy // 02.07.16


3rd Quarter-Final tomorrow – and probably the pick of the games! Italy and Germany have been the best two teams so far, Italy defensively solid, while Germany have not conceded a goal yet! Both have had issues breaking teams down, but have got there in the end.

Germany look better with an out and out striker on the pitch, while Draxler has come into his own so far! He looks the player everyone thought he’d be a few years ago, but impressive all the same!

Germany vs Italy: Under 1.5 Goals @ 11/8 (2000 KO)

This has 1-0 written all over it. Best two defences in the competition (I think) – Germany yet to concede while Italy have kept clean sheets in 3 of their 4 so far – and played Belgium and Spain! I think both will struggle to break each other down, leading to either extra time or a one goal win for either. Italy were very unfancied at the start, but have really earned their way through the stages with fantastic performances. Germany were 2nd favourite, and have only enhanced that feeling among punters and bookies alike.

I can’t pick a winner, but I think goals won’t be on the cards! 11/8 is fairly short, but reflects the fact that in 8 games between them, they have conceded one goal!

Best of luck
