- 1st Half
Italy, in blue shorts and white shirts, are wearing black armbands in solidarity with those who died in a terrorist attack in Dhaka last night. Germany in white shirts and black shorts kick off from left to right.
Germany coach Joachim Loew says his players must take any opportunities they can carve out against a well-drilled Italy side. It’s about a balance between defence and attack – you must create chances and you must take them, because against Italy you may not have that many,” he said. “The principle objective is to win the tournament and everyone has quality. I believe whoever wins tomorrow is the favourite to lift the trophy.”
Germany are the first side to keep a clean sheet in each of their first four games at a European Championship finals, and Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon says his opposite number Manuel Neuer is one of the stars of the tournament so far. “I think it would be a bit offensive to compare Manuel Neuer to a 38-year-old keeper – over the last 4-5 years he has really shown that he is an outstanding goalkeeper in every area,” he said.
Italy, who have picked up more cards than any other team at Euro 2016 (13 in four games), looked focused in the warm-up. Well, Graziano Pelle does - Gianluigi Buffon is waving at some friends.
Germany have averaged 69% possession over their first four games, the highest ratio so far at Euro 2016.
Italy have kept 19 clean sheets in 37 matches at the European Championship finals, more than any other team in the history of the tournament and just ahead of Germany, who have 18 clean sheets from 47 games.
Germany have reached at least the semi-finals in their last five major tournaments, winning 14 of their last 17 games, drawing two, with the sole defeat the Euro 2012 loss to Italy.
Italy have played Germany eight times in major tournaments, winning all four of the knock-out matches, and drawing the other four games. The last meeting was in the semi-finals of Euro 2012, where Mario Balotelli inspired Cesare Prandelli's side to a 2-1 victory in Warsaw.
For Germany, Boateng, Sami Khedira, Mats Hummels, Joshua Kimmich and Mesut Ozil are a yellow card away from missing a possible semi-final.
Germany: Neuer; Howedes, Boateng, Hummels: Hector; Kroos, Khedira, Muller, Ozil, Kimmich; Gomez...Subs: Mustafi, Draxler, Schurrle, Leno, Can, Schweinsteiger, Podolski Weigl, Tah, Gotze, Sane, ter Stegen.///Italy: Buffon; Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Florenzi, Sturaro, Parolo, Giaccherini, De Sciglio; Eder, Pelle Subs: Darmian, Ogbonna, Immobile, De Rossi, Candreva, Sirigu, Marchetti, Insigne, Bernardeschi, Motta, El Shaarawy, Zaza.
Germany, who have played a 4-2-3-1 so far at Euro 2016, are playing 3-5-2 on Saturday with Howedes alongside Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng. The world champions beat Antonio Conte's side in the March friendly using that formation.
The Italians have 11 players a booking away from a suspension that would see them miss the semi-final, with Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci, Gianluigi Buffon, Giorgio Chiellini, Daniele De Rossi, Mattia De Sciglio, Eder, Lorenzo Insigne, Graziano Pelle, Salvatore Sirigu and Simone Zaza all walking a disciplinary tightrope against the Germans.
Italy coach Antonio Conte makes just one change from the side that beat Spain 2-0 in the Round of 16 in Saint-Denis, with Stefano Sturaro coming in to the Azzurri midfield, with Daniele De Rossi sidelined with a thigh injury he sustained at the Stade de France.
Germany coach Joachim Loew has made one change from the side that beat Slovakia last Sunday in the Round of 16 match in Lille, with Bendedikt Howedes replacing Julian Draxler as manager Joachim Loew opts for a 3-4-3 formation
