Live Betting: Italy v. GermanyPublished November 15, 2013 by OCR Editor
Italy v. Germany, 7:45pm local time.
Tonight's match pitting Germany against Italy might be tagged as "friendly", but being aware of the rivalry between the two national teams, it might be a little bit more than that. Both teams won their 2014 World Cup qualifying group and are looking in great shape. Germany has beef with the Italians, who hindered their advancement in tournaments time and time again. The Mannschaft's fans agonizingly remember Germany's WC 2006 semi-final against Italy, which was won by two late game extra-time goals, crushing Germany's hopes of reaching the world cup's final in their own homeland.
Then, a similar scene took place in the 2012 UEFA European Football Championship, when the Germans lost 2-1 to the Italians in the semi-final. While tonight at the San Siro, nothing is at stake, it is very probable to believe we'll see a good display of football by both sides. Commenting on the match, Germany's manager Joachim Low said: "Italy are tactically world class, and the national team still plays at a high level". He went on adding that Germany wanted to play against Italy, because improvement will only come if they play against strong opponents.
