Poll of the Day: Will Germany claim their first ever competitive win against Italy to reach Euro 2012 final?

The semi-final will see Joachim Low's men eager to reverse their poor record against the Azzurri and Goal.com wants to know who you think will emerge victorious
Germany will lock horns with Italy in Thursday's Euro 2012 semi-final and will be itching to set the record straight against Cesare Prandelli's dark horses.

Die Mannschaft have never beaten the Azzurri in a major tournament but Joachim Low's men enter the game full of confidence after brushing aside Greece 4-2 in the quarter-finals.

Having to contend with shackling an Andrea Pirlo-inspired Italy will be a whole different task though. The 33-year-old has been magnificent so far in the tournament and will look to pull the strings in midfield once again as the Azzurri look to advance to the final.

However, Germany will be looking to exact a measure of revenge against Italy for their elimination from the semi-finals of the 2006 World Cup played in Dortmund.
