On the history of the two nations involved, it’s the clear tie of the quarter-final. On form so far at Euro 2016, it’s just as enticing. Put the two together and it seems a match-up worthy of final itself. Germany versus Italy. Tournament favourites against historic competitors who came into Euro 2016 largely an afterthought—then beat Belgium, Sweden, and Spain.
Whoever wins here will find themselves in the semi-final against either France or Iceland, and no matter what happens in tomorrow’s match between those two sides, and no matter that this year’s edition is being played on French soil, it is the winner here today who will be counted as favourite to win the entire tournament.
