Defeating Spain in previous round, another tough task arrived for Italy as this Saturday they face world champion, Germany for that one spot in Euro 2016 semifinals.
Admitting that his side are on for a much tougher task against Joachim Low’s men, Azzurri head coach, Antonio Conte prepared his team to study their opponent vigorously and search for ways to hurt them.
The tactician stated that battling Germany will surely be a tough task, but Italy will give their best and try to play based on their strength.
Unfortunately, the Azzurri might still be without their star midfielder, Daniele De Rossi, who picked up an injury against Spain.
Conte himself can’t confirmed De Rossi’s availability, but the tactician stated that only those who are 100% fit will be playing as they are not willing to take any chances against Germany.
Probable Italy line up against Germany:
Buffon(gk); Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini(def); Florenzi, Sturaro, Parolo, Giaccherini, De Sciglio(mi); Pelle, Eder (att)
