Toni Kroos' Germany and Antonio Conte's Italy will play what probably is the most interesting matchup of this UEFA Euro 2016 quarterfinals tonight.
Italy will have a boost in their morale after beating Spain last Monday in convincing fashion, so Germany must be careful with their counterattacks because that's precisely where Spain struggled the most. Conte's tactical system allowed De Rossi to break free and distribute the ball, so Joachim Löw will surely tell their man to press De Rossi in order to prevent a a comfortable game for the Italian side.
Make no mistake, Germany should still be the favourites for this match and they should dominate the ball and the tempo of the game through Kroos and his teammates. However, Italy's defensive line is a force to be reckoned with and it will not be easy for Müller and the rest of the attackers to create good scoring chances against them.
Location: Bordeaux, France.
Kick-off time: 09:00 PM CET, 03:00 PM Eastern, 12:00 PM Pacific
