Match Preview

The defending Euro champion, the Portugal national team, faced the German national team on the second matchday of Group F Euro 2020, Saturday (19/6/2021) night IST. This match will be held at the Allianz Arena, Munich.

Portugal has the opportunity to ensure a ticket to the last 16 of the European Cup this time through a win. However, Germany will not give up either. Losing was not an option for Die Mannschaft.

Portugal successfully started their step in the hell group at Euro 2020 with a 3-0 win over Hungary in Budapest. Portugal won through Raphael Guerreiro's goal in the 84th minute and Cristiano Ronaldo's two goals in the 87th and 90'+2 minutes.

The two goals saw Cristiano Ronaldo score 11 goals at the Euros and become the top scorer in the European Cup finals, overtaking the record holder of French legend Michel Platini, who scored 9 goals

Meanwhile, the German national team must recognize France's toughness despite playing at the Allianz Arena. Joachim Low's team had to lose 0-1 because of an own goal by Mats Hummels.

Portugal will qualify for the next round if they beat Germany. Portugal is also certain to finish in the top two if they win in Munich, while Hungary fails to beat France in other matches.

Germany's task is much more difficult. The owner of three European Cup titles will not be able to finish in the top two if he loses to Portugal, while France did not lose against Hungary at the Puskas Arena. Manuel Neuer et al. need to beat Portugal if the chances of qualifying for the next stage remain.

Germany will return to play at home. This time, they certainly want to play much better than when they lost to France. However, beating Portugal is not an easy matter, because his opponent is filled with high confidence.

When they met last time, namely in the 2014 World Cup group stage, Germany beat Portugal four goals without reply. Thomas Muller scored a hat-trick, while Mats Hummels contributed one goal for Germany.

Can Germany repeat it, or will it be Portugal who this time will come out victorious and advance to the last 16 of Euro 2020?
