19th June – 18:00, Allianz Arena, Munich
Portugal and Germany will face each other in the EURO 2020 group stage 2nd round on Saturday afternoon. The defending champions can seal their spot in the knockout round, while the hosts desperately need points from this game.
Portugal vs Germany Match Preview & Team News
It seemed that they wouldn’t make it, but a quickfire in the last ten minutes of the game saw Portugal beating Hungary 3:0. Cristiano Ronaldo’s brace made him the most efficient player in the history of the European Championships. This time, the opposition is much more challenging, and Seleção needs a more confident display here. Fernando Santos’s side is on an excellent run as they haven’t lost seven times in a row. During that period, Portugal failed to win only twice. They have also been pretty disciplined in the back, and Portugal managed to keep three consecutive clean sheets. The visitors look forward to another confident performance which can bring them valuable points.
Germany faced France in their campaign opener but failed to a narrow 1:0 defeat due to Matts Hummels own goal. They now need to chase a win here in order not to finish participation in another major tournament in the group stage. Joachim Low’s side is not as convincing as it was a couple of years ago, and Germany needs to improve to challenge the title. Their defensive problems are the particular highlight, as Elf has been conceding a lot. Germany couldn’t keep the clean sheet in their previous four games, and they couldn’t keep their net intact even against Latvia. If they don’t pick up at least a point from this one, Germany will find themselves in severe trouble.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Portugal is full of confidence after a positive start of the campaign, while Germany’s locker room atmosphere doesn’t seem to be good. We believe the defending champions are severely underestimated by the bookies and think Portugal won’t lose this one.
Goals Market Prediction
Germany needs to go towards the opposition’s goal from the very start, which can open some space for the visitors to hit back. Since the home side is leaky in the back, we could expect to see goals in both nets this time.
