Portugal vs Germany Match Preview and Team News
Defending champions Portugal had a nervy opening to the Euro 2020 campaign against Hungary but just managed to win in it with three goals in the final six minutes. They face former world champions Germany in their second game in Group F, with the two nations separated by their fortunes in the opening games. As the holders thumped Hungary 3-0 in Budapest, Germany was at home in Munich, losing 1-0 to world champions France. Portugal has their place among the giants in world football, and taking on this German side that has lost its shimmer over the years should be pretty manageable. The last time these two nations faced off was in the 2014 World Cup, and Germany beat Portugal 4-0. For the Portuguese, that marked a fourth straight loss to Germany, but these two nations have had very different fortunes. Portugal is a much better side, and coming here with three consecutive clean sheets and unbeaten in seven matches should give them the confidence. Danilo Pereira is a modest player who works a lot on the field, plays without mistakes, all praise for him. Cristiano Ronaldo is the biggest star of the national team, he is a football machine, and it is a real pleasure to watch this man.
Germany had very few open chances against France in their opening game and was lucky not to lose by a bigger margin in the game in Munich. They will still be there to take on Portugal and hope playing on home soil comes with good fortunes. France dominated them, and Mats Hummels, under pressure from Kylian Mbappe, turned the ball in his own net for the only goal of the game. France had two goals disallowed in Germany’s opening. Though they had no clean chance to test Hugo Lloris in the France goal, here it should be better as they’ll seek to exploit Portugal’s defensive issues exposed in the win over Hungary. Ilkay Gundogan is a tremendous defensive midfielder who knows what he is doing at all times, he is strong, and it is not easy to take the ball away from him. Serge Gnabry enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems.
