Italy v Germany Preview, Women’s 2013 European Championship, Sunday 21st July 2013

With Italy coming 2nd fiddle to Sweden in Group A it will be an impressive win if they manage to overthrow Germany in the quarter-finals, something the Italians have never managed having never beaten the Germans in a competitive match. But can they break that duck come Sunday evening kickoff and finally reach the semi-finals which is something they have not achieved since the 1995/97 campaign where they lost in the final against their next opponents.

Germany find themselves in a shock position here having been drawn for the quarter-finals stages as runners up, with an impressive 1 – 0 win by Norway in their last match it is them who managed to top Group B. But will the current holders be too worried? I can’t see it as they have never lost to Italy in a competitive match and although the current team is missing a large important collection of players due to injury they have still been playing like world champions regardless of the loss to Norway. The 7 EURO titles the Germans have collected since it began is clear indication to the teams capabilities and prowess when it comes down to this historic tournament.

Italy v Germany Team News

Italy Team News:

This will be a game the Italians would not of wanted having never beaten Germany on the big stage, granted they have beaten them 4 times in the past in friendlies they have still never tasted victory in an important match like Sunday’s. But could this be Italy’s time because Germany have finally ended their long and impressive unbeaten run in the Women’s EURO competition with a 1 – 0 loss to Norway. With the Italians struggling to bang in the goals with a poor account of only 3 goals with a -1 goal difference after letting in 4, it leaves questions open for discussion with who will be the hero come Sunday evening.

Germany Team News:

With a shock defeat to Norway in their last match it has left them shaken and has finally allowed other teams to see that they can truly be beaten. They can put it down to the loss of a majority if the team prior to the competition with injuries to many of the squad who failed to fly out and make it for final selection. With an unimpressive tally of just 3 goals so far it is not looking too much like in Germany’s favor to get to the final with other teams in the competition in far better form. With that taken into account I don’t feel Italy will be that team to put the current holders out and I feel it will be either Sweden or France who do in the final on the 28th of this month.

Italy v Germany Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Even though Germany slipped up against Norway I just can’t see Italy beating the current holders and 7 times winners, but have two bets in mind with Germany going through either way. For a bit of fun and only because I was shocked at the odds I have added a 2-2 draw for selection. Although both teams have struggled to find the net it could be left for this game with both teams needing to go for the win which could potentially leave open gaps at the back and allow both teams to counter attack.
