Portugal vs Germany Predictions: Betting tips, odds & match preview

Germany will look to bounce back from defeat in their Euro 2020 opener when they take on Portugal for the second game in Group F on Saturday at 5pm.

Portugal vs Germany: Predictions

In what is, without question, the toughest group in Euro 2020, the moods of both nations were poles apart after matchday one. The reigning champions, Portugal, were sleepwalking towards a frustrating stalemate before Cristiano Ronaldo inspired a late 3-0 win, while Germany were edged out by world champions France.

It was an intimidating atmosphere in Budapest as a capacity crowd at the Ferenc Puskas Stadium cheered on Hungary, but Portugal brought the decibel levels down a notch or two with their late flurry, in which Ronaldo netted a five-minute brace to follow on from Raphael Guerreiro’s deadlock breaker.

Germany meanwhile enjoyed no such luck against France as Joachim Low — who will leave at the end of the tournament — struggled to find a way of thwarting the breakneck speed of Kylian Mbappe, though it was ultimately a Mats Hummels own goal that separated the nations.

Portugal vs Germany: Corner Stats

Portugal racked up six corners in their opener against Hungary, though they failed to capitalise on those deadball scenarios. Fernando Santos, though, will be encouraged that his side dominated the flanks and didn’t allow the Magyars to register a single corner. Germany meanwhile had five to France’s three, with Les Bleus dominating the skies on the night; Paul Pogba registered a match-high four aerial duels won, and Raphael Varane came in next with three.

Portugal vs Germany: Cards Stats

Both these nations picked up a yellow card in their respective openers. Ruben Dias was caught out and entered the referee’s book, while Joshua Kimmich, playing in an unfamiliar right wing-back role did not escape the naughty step, seeing yellow after fouling Lucas Hernandez in the first half. However, he managed to see the game out despite playing the majority of the game on a yellow against the blistering pace of Mbappe.
