Germany ´fear´ Italy, says Molinaro

Stuttgart defender Cristian Molinaro believes Germany fear Italy ahead of their Euro 2012 semi-final encounter.

Joachim Loew’s men are widely regarded as the favourites to progress to the final on Thursday, but the former Juventus left-back believes the Germans’ confident attitude might be an act rather than a sincere feeling.

“Here (in Germany) the newspapers keep focusing on the quality of the German side, who have been renovated in terms of system, players and ideas,” two-time Italy international Molinaro told Radio Calciomercato.

“The truth, though, is that they really fear us.

“In psychological terms, I think Italy are still a step ahead. I think Germany would’ve preferred to face England in the semi-final, considering their record against Italy.”

Italy have never lost to Germany at a major tournament and knocked their European rivals out of the 2006 World Cup in an enthralling semi-final.
