Head to Head

Germany have a 10-3 advantage against Portugal with 5 draws in 18 matches.

Portugal Form

Portugal have won five of their last six matches. Fernando Santos’ side started the World Cup qualifiers with a 1-0 win against Azerbaijan followed by 2-2 draw in Serbia and 3-1 win in Luxembourg.

The Seleção played two friendlies to prepare for Euro 2020. They drew 0-0 against Spain before a 4-0 win against Israel with Bruno Fernandes (2), Cristiano Ronaldo and João Cancelo on target.

Portugal started Euro 2020 with a 3-0 win against Hungary. Raphael Guerreiro opened the scoring with a deflected strike in the 84th minute, Ronaldo scoring two goals to put icing on the cake.

Portugal Squad & Team News

Goalkeepers: Rui Patrício, Anthony Lopes, Rui Silva
Defenders: Nélson Semedo, Pepe, Rúben Dias, Raphaël Guerreiro, José Fonte, Diogo Dalot, Nuno Mendes
Midfielders: João Moutinho, Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes, Danilo Pereira, William Carvalho, Rafa Silva, Renato Sanches, Rúben Neves, Pedro Gonçalves, Sérgio Oliveira, João Palhinha
Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo (captain), André Silva, Gonçalo Guedes, Diogo Jota, João Félix

João Cancelo tested positive for COVID-19 and was replaced by Diogo Dalot. Expect Nelson Semedo to continue at right back.

Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patrício is closing in on 100 caps, Pepe earning 116 and João Moutinho 132 caps. 

Captain Cristiano Ronaldo has 176 caps and 106 goals to his name. He is closing in on being the top international goalscorer of all time.

Germany Form

Germany have been inconsistent. They have lost three of their last seven games which includes a 6-0 defeat against Spain in the UEFA Nations League.

Joachim Löw’s side started their World Cup qualifying campaign with a 3-0 win against Iceland and 1-0 win in Romania. They returned to Germany and lost 2-1 against North Macedonia.

Die Mannschaft have played two international friendlies to prepare for Euro 2020. They drew 1-1 against Denmark before a 7-1 win against Latvia.

Germany started Euro 2020 with a 1-0 defeat against France. They were allowed to have most of the ball but were largely ineffective, Mats Hummels scoring an own goal in the 20th minute.

Germany Squad & Team News

Goalkeepers: Manuel Neuer (captain), Bernd Leno, Kevin Trapp
Defenders: Antonio Rüdiger, Marcel Halstenberg, Matthias Ginter, Mats Hummels, Niklas Süle, Lukas Klostermann, Robin Gosens, Emre Can, Robin Koch, Christian Günter
Midfielders: Joshua Kimmich, Toni Kroos, Jonas Hofmann, Jamal Musiala, Florian Neuhaus, Leon Goretzka, İlkay Gündoğan
Forwards: Kai Havertz, Leroy Sané, Kevin Volland, Serge Gnabry, Thomas Müller, Timo Werner

Midfielders Jonas Hofmann and Leon Goretzka are getting back to full fitness and could be in contention off the bench.

Matthias Ginter is doubtful which could see Emre Can play in central defence.

Joachim Löw could make some changes here with Leroy Sané and Timo Werner in line to start.

Germany’s defence is a problem area and Portugal have the firepower to add insult to injury. I'm tipping Portugal to win the match and qualify for the knockout rounds after just two games. Cristiano Ronaldo can continue his goalscoring form and add to his incredible 106 international goals.
