Betting prediction: Portugal 1 – 1 Germany

Portugal face Germany at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany on Saturday for this Euro 2020 Group F match.

Germany have dominated the head-to-head between these nations, with 10 wins to Portugal’s 3 from their 18 encounters. This includes wins in each of the last 4 meetings between the two. However, this is the first time they have met in the last 7 years in which time Portugal have fared better than Germany in these major tournaments. Therefore, 101 Great Goals’ prediction is Portugal 1 – 1 Germany at odds of 6/1.

Portugal have won just 1 in the last 9 matches in this head-to-head. This sees them start as the 11/5 underdogs here for any win.

The first time these countries met each other in the European Championships in 1984, they shared the points. Odds of 12/5 are available if you see Portugal and Germany cancelling each other out on Saturday.

Germany have won each of the last 4 meetings between these two nations. They are the heavy favourites at home at 5/4 for any win.

Recommended Portugal vs Germany betting tips

3-0 Portugal win. Portugal were 3-0 winners when they met in Euro 2000 thanks to a Sérgio Conceição hat-trick. A repeat of this score on Saturday is available at odds of 40/1.

0-0 draw. The first time these nations faced each other in the European Championships, the match ended in a 0-0 draw. Another bore-draw on Saturday is available at odds of 17/2.

1-0 Germany win. The Germans won 1-0 thanks to Mario Gomez when they last encountered each other in the European Championships back in 2012. You can back them at 15/2 for the same scoreline here on Saturday.

Over 2.5 goals. Portugal vs Germany matches have been high scoring over the last 20 years with 4 of the 5 games producting over 2.5 goals; an average of 3.4 goals per game. You can back another high scoring game here on Saturday with odds of evens for over 2.5 goals.

Cristiano Ronaldo Goalscorer. Ronaldo (above) had a quiet game for Portugal in their opening match before exploding into the life in the final 10 minutes and bagging a brace of goals for himself. In his previous 4 caps against Germany, he has been on the losing side on all 4 occasions and is yet to register a goal against them. The 36-year-old is the 9/2 favourite to score the game’s opener on Saturday. Or 6/4 to bag his first ever goal against Germany at any time during the game.

Portugal vs Germany betting tips: Match preview

“The 2016 team was a very strong team, players with immense quality, but also players who knew each other well. This team is a different team, it’s a team that has been being rebuilt, so to say. It’s a natural evolution, and now it’s time to find the right balance between the ability of the newcomers to the team with the needs of the team, in order for us to win such a competition.”
– Fernando Santos, Portugal Head Coach

The Portuguese face a nation they have historically struggled against here in Germany. They have just 1 win in the last 9, have lost each of the last 4 and the last match between them for the World Cup in Brazil 2014 was a humiliating 4-0 defeat.

However, this is a different Portugal. One that has shed years of being nearly-men to win the previous European Championships in 2016 as well as becoming the first and so far, only, winners of the UEFA Nations League.

They were underwhelming in their opening match of the tournament against Hungary. Despite a wealth of attacking talent on the pitch, the midfield failed to create any meaningful chances for their attackers. Ronaldo’s close-range miss aside, they rarely looked like scoring in the first-half.

It wasn’t until Guerriero saw his deflected effort trickle past the keeper 6 minutes from time that the flood gates opened. Although, perhaps this is also a good omen based on their 2016 victory when they were also slow starters.

They scraped into the knockouts by the skin of their teeth after finishing 3rd in a group including Hungary, Iceland and Austria after drawing all 3 matches. The dominant force at the beginning in these tournaments rarely comes out the other side as champions. Perhaps being slow-burners will suit Portugal in 2020 once again.

Germany: Unlikely underdog status

“We’ve always beaten Portugal in tournaments over the past 10 or 12 years. In our last meeting in 2014, our opening game, that gave us good momentum. Now we have a completely different team, as does Portugal. They’ve been playing together for a while, they won the title in 2016, beating France at home. That was great for them.”
РJoachim L̦w, Germany Head Coach

Germany also failed to impress in their opening match of the tournament. The fact they lost against World Champions and Euro 2020 favourites France was understandable. Expected even. Being an underdog is a rare experience for this Germany side and it will be interesting to see how well this new coat fits them.

If they are to do anything in this tournament, it is clear they will need more from their attack. The attacking trio of Serge Gnabry, Kai Havertz and Thomas Müller had a very quiet evenings against France collectively managing just 2 shots, none of which were on target, during the match.

Unfortunately, gone are the days of having a Mario Gomez or Miroslav Klose figure in the team who would sniff out goals in the box. The forward who is most likely to lead the line against Portugal is one who has been ridiculed for his finishing this season at Chelsea.

Timo Werner (above) has just 1 goal in his last 6 caps for Germany. That goal was Die Mannschaft’s 6th goal in a 7-1 thrashing for Latvia in a Euro 2020 warm-up match. Germany will likely need Timo to rediscover his 2017 form, when he exploded onto the scene with 6 goals in his first 8 caps.

Portugal team news vs Germany

João Cancelo (above) has been replaced Diego Dalot in the squad following a positive COVID-19 test.

Midfield duo William Carvalho and Danilo Pereira lacked a little invention in their passing to unpick the Hungarian lock. Renato Sanches will hope he showed the coach what was missing from his brief cameo to get the nod here.

The attacking midfield trio of Diogo Jota, Bruno Fernandes and Bernardo Silva all failed to impress in Portugal’s opener. This will leave Rafa Silva, Pedro Gonçalves, Gonçalo Guedes, André Silva and João Félix all hoping for a chance from the start here.

Following his yellow card against Hungary, Rúben Dias runs the risk of missing the match against France with another yellow card here. Should Portugal’s qualification from the group look guaranteed in the latter stages of this match, it could be in Dias’ best interests to get carded here to reduce his chances of being suspended for any knockout matches.

Germany team news vs Portugal

Lukas Klostermann is ruled out after suffering a thigh injury in training.

Matthias Ginter is also a doubt for this match after coming off against France. This leaves Joachim Löw with few options in central defence. Emre Can, who replaced Ginter on Wednesday night, looks most likely to deputise.

Leon Goretzka missed the match against France due to injury. However, he is expected to return on Saturday for the clash with defending champions Portugal.

There was concern Antonio Rudiger may miss the match having been pictured biting Paul Pogba during the match. Both players have confirmed the incident was friendly in nature though and Rudiger has been cleared to play against Portugal.

The German’s attacking trio of Serge Gnabry, Kai Havertz (above) and Thomas Müller all had very quiet evenings against France. Gnabry looks certain to miss out having withdrawn from the match with an injury. Leroy Sané, Kevin Volland and Timo Werner will all be hoping to benefit from any reshuffle in the German’s attack.

Like Rúben Dias, Joshua Kimmich will be walking the tightrope this match to avoid a suspension for Germany’s crucial final group match against Hungary.
