The Germans have never lost a European Championship quarter-final, with all signs tonight pointing to a Greek exit.

Talking of which, it is impossible to avoid talk of politics ahead of this evening's game, and there have been plenty of mentions of bailouts and Eurozone exits over the past few days.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who is massively unpopular in debt-ridden Greece because of the tough austerity measures she has demanded in return for financial assistance, will be in attendance in Gdansk tonight.

The winners of tonight's clash will face either England or Italy for a place in the Euro 2012 final.

These two sides have met on eight previous occasions, with Germany (including west Germany) yet to lose to the Greeks, winning five and drawing three.

But they have met just once previously at a European Championship finals, drawing 0-0 in the group stages of Euro 1980. Germany went on to beat Belgium in the final.

Their most recent meetings came in qualifying for the 2002 World Cup, with Germany comfortably winning 2-0 at home back in September 2000, and 4-2 in Athens the following March.

Greece are more than capable of causing an upset, however, and the shock winners from 2004 have already caused the biggest surprise of Euro 2012 by eliminating Russia at the group stage.

Can they do the same again this evening?
