Two international Group F giants prepare to lock horns this weekend, with vital points there for the taking. For their second game of the tournament, Portugal travel to take on Germany this Saturday.
PORTUGAL VS GERMANY BETTING
In the end, a 3-0 victory against Hungary last Tuesday may have been a flattering result for the Portuguese national side. Scoring two goals for his team, captain Cristiano Ronaldo was customarily on hand to ensure his side left the Puskas Arena in Budapest with all three points and a great chance to make it out of Group F.
The 2016 winners now face their most formidable challenge in the competition. Fighting in a group filled with so much quality that it has been dubbed the “Group of Death”, Fernando Santos will be pushing his Portuguese side to another win and three vital points this Saturday when the German national team welcomes them to the Football Arena in Munich.
A chance to get one foot into the Round of 16 ahead of a final group fixture against favourites France is not something Portugal could ill afford to pass up. Os Navegadores measure up at 4/1 (5.00) to win their battle this Saturday, with both teams finding the net.
If you think that the spoils are there to be shared, we’ve got the draw at 12/5 (3.40).
A first game against the reigning World Cup champions was never going to be easy for Joachim Low and his German side.
Losing 1-0 against France due to an own goal by Mats Hummels will have left the Germans with a sour taste in their mouth, putting them on the back foot ahead of their upcoming fixture against Portugal – who already have three points on the board.
Despite them being unable to take any points back to base, Die Mannschaft were still able to give a good account of themselves, showing that although they’re not quite the same team they were back in 2014 – when they won the FIFA World Cup in Brazil, they’ve still got more than enough talent to worry the biggest competitors on the world stage.
Germany are at 14/5 (3.80) to undo some of the damage they suffered last Tuesday and beat Portugal with both teams scoring.
