Germany vs. Greece OddsGdansk in Poland opens its doors for the last time at Euro 2012 when albiergue Friday meeting between Germany and Greece, valid for the quarterfinals of the continental tournament. Join Now to Bet on this Game!

The Germans, who played for the first time a match in Poland in this tournament, reaching the compromise with the intention to stop and little doubt in the picture. The power of the "Mannschaft" for this edition of the Euro was defined in the group stage. The team led by Joachim Löw pleasure dominated the dreaded "group of death" and ended with a perfect B Platoon who completed Portugal, Holland and Denmark.

The Teutons in Ukraine started its fourth Euro illusion, specifically in Lviv, when overpowered by Portugal 1-0 in an orderly and incisive. Some echoes in reference to the potential negative Germanic appeared after this meeting, in that while Germany was victorious, its offensive possibilities not yet convinced.

The second match against Holland, in Kharkiv, began to banish criticism, especially the explosion in front. Mario Gomez raised his hand as a reference to the attack and proved to be worthy bearer of hope for a balanced workforce and held on two occasions to reflect on the scoreboard (2-1) a victory over the enemy town.

Against Denmark, Joachim Löw brought down another concern on this computer: the bench. With the absence of suspended Jerome Boateng, the German strategist chose to enter Lars Bender midfielder vocation but who responded to the "improvisation" and masterfully covered the right flank inherited by the element of Bayern Munich. His performance was decorated with the goal that allowed the "Nationalelf" bend the Scandinavians (2-1) and reach perfection in group B.

Now with full team once again, Germany began the second stage toward the title, the "disadvantage" that an outcome other than the championship would mean a failure for a nation that always keeps ahead and pride in this Euro is stands as the favorite. While Greece is not a rival, on paper, as powerful as his first three opponents, the elimination will push the Teutonic machinery to stop functioning.

For its part, Greece has its own reason to hope. Eight years later, the Hellenic return to a second phase in the most continental tournament selections. His last memory in this instance is more than pleased when they eliminated France, which had the likes of Thierry Henry, Claude Makelele and, of course, the great emblem Zinedine Zidane.
Hopes albiazules pass right now rise above adversity, as they did in that 2004, which achieved its historic title in the Euro. The circumstances are set for warriors commanded by Fernando Santos again don his armor in search of a feat more.

In that era achieved in Portugal only be maintained for the match against the "Mannschaft" defender Kostas Katsouranis, while the other survivor, midfielder Giorgios Karagounis, you have to watch the game from the stands because they comply with a suspension for accumulation yellow cards.

In addition to his formidable rival, the Greek hopelessness could revolve around the lack of Karagounis, undisputed symbol of this selection, since the element of not only provided power Panathinaikos defense (still the mainstay of this team), but commanded his bracket to the achievement of the ticket to contest this event thanks to his goal against Russia (1-0) on the last day of group A.

Previously, Greece played the opening match with the host Poland (1-1) and suffered a setback against Czech Republic 2-1 in the second game, but not separated the Hellenic second place in the squad with four points, just behind the Czechs who managed six.
What's more, coupled with low Karagounis, Jose Holebas side will also miss this game through suspension, injury and Avraam Papadopoulos at the opening, the strategist of Greece will have to improvise in their strongest line. The addition of Stelios Weed plant is emerging as the most viable.

Despite the "patches" in the lower Hellenic expect a very tense match between the teams. The Germans, with all its scope, make a huge mistake if they look down on a Greece will try to withstand the shocks enemies whatever their talents and allow them to heart.
