Germany Italy Euro 2012 Odds

After cruising through the Group Stage undefeated and rolling over Greece in the quarterfinals Germany looks tough to beat heading into their Thursday semifinal matchup with Italy.

The Germans were the only team in the tournament to win all three of their games in the Group Stage. That included a 1-0 win over Portugal and 2-1 victories over both the Netherlands and Denmark. In the quarterfinals Germany has little trouble with Greece in a 4-2 win. Italy an their tough defense will be Germany's toughest test of the tournament so far, but they're still a -130 match favorite at Bovada.

Italy enters the match as a +400 underdog at Bovada, while the draw odds stand at +400 as well. Italy made it to the semis after a stanch defensive effort and solid goal tending from Gianluigi Buffon against England in the quarterfinals. The game finished scoreless after extra time and Italy won on penalties 4-2.

One reason the Italians may be such large underdogs to defeat Germany is that they've only won one game in the tournament in regulation so far. In the Group State Italy's lone tournament regulation win was a 2-0 defeat against winless Ireland.

However, they did draw even with defending champions Spain 1-1 and also drew 1-1 against Croatia. Italy has only scored four goals in four matches in the tournament and may need to give their offense a boost to upset Germany. Defensively the Italians have only allowed two goals in the entire tournament.

One thing that is on Italy's side in the match is history. The Italians are undefeated in their last seven major tournament matches against Germany. Their last major tournament matchup came in the 2006 World Cup which Italy won 2-0 after extra time. Their last matchup overall was an intentional friendly held in Germany in February, 2011 which ended in a 1-1 draw.
