Germany was seeing half the action while Brazil was getting 32%.
The bad news for the World Cup host Brazilians is that they will be without two of their best players in Neymar and Thiago Silva, the later of whom is suspended.
Brazilian great Zico has said ahead of the match: "The players have a chance to draw energy from Neymar's sacrifice. They need to leave their souls on the pitch as a tribute for this kid."
Brazil and Germany have played more World Cup matches than any other side (102 and 104 respectively), but have only met once before at the tournament. That was the 2002 final, won 2-0 by the Brazilians.
Brazil have scored in each of their last 10 meetings with Germany, averaging 2.2 goals per game. That being said, injured Brazilian striker Neymar has played a part in 50% of Brazil's 10 goals at this World Cup (four goals, one assist).
Brazil's only defeat in the last 26 games came against Switzerland last August (W19, D6, L1).
The Germans are the first country to reach four successive World Cup semi-finals.
Their record in their 11 previous semi-finals is four wins, five defeats and two draws - both of which were followed by penalty shootouts which they won.
Germany are unbeaten in their last 16 internationals (W11, D5), the best run of any side still involved at the World Cup.
