Italy – Germany Preview

It’s time for one of the greatest football classics of all time. Italy will host Germany in Bologna in a game from the 2022/23 Nations League campaign. It’s a perfect time for us to preview in these best soccer predictions for today.

 

For Italy this match comes soon after they suffered one of the biggest upsets in their history. The European champions failed to qualify for the World Cup as they suffered a shocking defeat against North Macedonia at home. Despite this, Roberto Mancini remained on his position as a manager. Now he has to prove himself again.

 

For Italy this game comes just three days after the Finalissima against Argentina at the Wembley. That’s why Mancini called more players for the upcoming games. The proven ones are here, though – Donnarumma, Bonucci, Verratti, Jorginho, Insigne and Belotti are back in the squad.

 

The legendary centre-back Giorgio Chiellini won’t play against Germany, though. The Finalissima game against Argentina on Wednesday will be his last game for the national team.

 

Germany are desperate for success after many disappointments in the last 8 years. The new head coach Hansi Flick proved himself at Bayern Munich, but now he will has to do it with the national side as well. One thing is for sure – he knows how to win trophies as he won everything possible with Bayern.

 

Flick will rely on an experienced squad for the upcoming matches. Veterans like Thomas Muller, Joshua Kimmich, Ilkay Gundogan, Marco Reus, Antonio Rudiger and Manuel Neuer return in action. Some less experienced players like Jamal Musiala, Anton Stach, Karim Adeyemi and Nico Schlotterbeck will have the chance to shine as well.

 

That’s our best soccer predictions for today for the football classic between Italy and Germany on Saturday. These two teams know how to deliver some amazing performances to us. Let’s hope it’s going to happen again!
