Germany vs Italy Live Score stream commentary of Euro 2016 quarter-final

Former Nigeria global Jonathan Akpoborie has tipped Germany to beat Italy in Saturday's Euro 2016 quarter-final clash.

Both teams have reached the quarter-final stage in excellent form, with Germany yet to concede a goal and with Italy having conceded just one - against Ireland when qualification was already secured.

Italy had previously won four straight meetings over the Germans at major global tournaments, but Germany looked very much like the defending World Cup champions. The victor will book itself into the semi-final round.

Germany coach Joachim Low, despite his success since taking over Die Mannschaft almost 10 years ago, is also privy to the Italian threat.

Far from being an assured showing on their route to the quarter-finals, the Germans have fallen back on their efficiency in getting the job done in the European champions.

Italy beat Germany 2-1 in the semi-finals of Euro 2012, only to lose the final 4-0 to Spain.

Pretty sure those guys are going to play a big role in a potential Italy win.

Both teams have talked up the respect factor and downplayed the significance of Italy's eight-game unbeaten run against Germany at major tournaments.

Germany captain Bastian Schweinsteiger is poised to make his first start in the Bordeaux match, while Italy's veteran defender Daniele de Rossi faces a race to be fit.

"We have to improve, and there will be no neglect", he said. Special mentions also go to Boateng and Mats Hummels, who have formed a formidable partnership in the centre of defence and will need to be at their best once again to prevent the physical Graziano Pelle from causing trouble in similar circumstances to how he caused problems for the Spanish back four.

We know there are difficulties and we're prepared to face them.

"I don't see a clear favourite, but I'm really excited to see the game played out", Klose told the DFB website. Known for defensive aggressiveness, the Italians will be tested and if they ended up winning, they are the favorites to move on.

Khedira also plies his trade with the Serie A champions and Kroos expects him to have compared notes with Germany coach Joachim Low before the Bordeaux encounter. They have everything that a strong side needs, technical ability, talent, physical power, organisation, tactical set-up. they are the most complete side in the world. The players are giving everything for each other and they are perhaps the most hardworking team in the competition.
