Italy vs Germany Betting Line

Published on June 25th, 2012 3:44 pm EST

On June 28th, Italy and Germany will be squaring off in one of the Euro 2012 Semifinals, while Spain and Portugal will be playing the day before.

Germany and Spain were the two favorites to win Euro 2012 before the tournament started, so it shouldn't surprise you to hear that both teams are favored to win their respective Semifinal match-ups.

Germany reached the semifinals after thrashing Greece 4-2 in the Quarterfinals, while Italy managed to beat England in penalties.

Let's take a look at the current betting line for the Germany/Italy match on June 28th:

Germany - 10/11
Draw - 12/5
Italy - 7/2

The decimal odds are:

Germany - 1.90
Draw - 3.40
Italy - 4.50

Finally, the American odds:

Germany, -110
Draw, +240
Italy, +350

An interesting note - Germany has never beat Italy in a major tournament. The last time that the two sides played was at the 2006 World Cup, when Italy defeated the Germans in the semi-finals. Before that, the two sides met in some classic matches, including the 1982 World Cup final and 1970 World Cup semi-final, both of which were won by Italy.

Germany is heavily favoured to win, but Italy has history on their side.
