Germany unsurprisingly go into the game as huge favourites with the bookmakers having cruised through Group B, recording wins over Portugal, Netherlands, and Denmark to reach the quarter-finals as the only side to win all three group games.

Few fancied Greece to reach the last eight, but they advanced after finishing as runners-up in Group A.

Germany will look to striker Mario Gomez to add to his three goals in the tournament so far, and with just over 24 hours until kick-off have no real injury concerns.

Greece are set to be without Avraam Papadopoulos for the crunch clash.

Greece have met Germany eight times before Friday night's meeting, but are yet to win (drawing three and losing 5). Their last meeting was back in March 2001, when Germany won 4-2 in a 2002 World Cup qualifier.

Germany go into the game having progressed to the semi-finals on five of the last six occasions that they have contested a quarter-final match at a major tournament.

Despite their 100 per cent group record, however, it is worth noting that only two of the eight teams to previously win all of their group games at the Euros have gone onto win the tournament - France in 1984, and Spain in 2008.
