Portugal (POR) squares off against Germany (GER) in what promises to be a thrilling contest in Munich’s Allianz Arena. Both teams have made contrasting starts to their Euro 2020 campaign. Two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo helped the defending champions beat Hungary 0-3. Meanwhile, Germany lost to France in their first match, but three points tonight will put them in a comfortable position as they face Hungary in their final fixture in the group stage.
The spotlight will be on Ronaldo, but the 36-year-old hasn’t scored a goal against Germany in four attempts. He will be desperate to break the duck and help Portugal pick up their first win over the European giants in 21 years. The likes of Bruno Fernandes and Bernardo Silva will be keen to up their game, while Ruben Dias and Pepe face a stern test early in the tournament.
In their Euro 2020 opener, the absence of a prolific goalscorer dented Germany’s hopes of getting something from the match. Serge Gnabry, who has scored 16 goals in 23 matches for Germany, is expected to keep his place against Portugal. The fans will be hoping Thomas Muller and Kai Havertz can find their goalscoring boots and ease the crisis in the attacking department.
POR won: 3
