Portugal v Germany Prediction - Form (All Competitions)
With their win over Hungary in their first game of the tournament, Portugal have been undefeated in their last five matches, with three wins and two draws. Germany, on the other hand, suffered a painful loss to World Cup titleholders France in their opening fixture. Let’s take an in-depth look into both teams.
Portugal v Germany Prediction - Preview
Portugal have started their campaign to defend the EURO trophy on the right foot with a 3-0 rout of Hungary. Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo almost had a chance to put A Selecao in front in the half, but the scoreless draw remained in place until the game’s closing minutes. Hungary’s Schabols Schon was also denied a goal for being offside. The breakthrough came at the 84th minute when Raphaël Guerreiro scored off of a deflection from Willi Orbán. The Hungarian defender was then booked, resulting in a penalty converted by Ronaldo, who at that point overtook Michel Platini in EURO goals. The Juventus star added another beauty two minutes after full time by cutting into the box, going around Péter Gulácsi and slotting in the ball. Head coach Fernando Santos was satisfied with his side’s performance even if they left it late, and their form will surely be put to the test, with powerhouse Germany in their next fixute.
- Portugal’s last win over Germany was in the EURO 2000 group stages (3-0), thanks to a Sergio Conceicao hat-trick.
- Cristiano Ronaldo has never scored against Germany (four games) in spite of attempting 23 shots against them.
Germany have hit a bump in the road in their quest to win their fourth EURO trophy when they lost 0-1 to France, also in the Allianz Arena. In a match that saw Germany having a possession of 62%, it was one of their own, Mats Hummels, who produced the only goal of the match, and an own goal at that. Hummels tried to deflect Paul Pogba’s attempted assist to Lucas Hernandez, but wound up kicking the ball into the net. Die Mannschaft also was unable to break the French defence, sealing their fate. Head coach Joachim Low, who will be stepping down at the end of the tournament, vowed to fix the issues of his side as they take on Ronaldo and the rest of Portugal, who are riding on a high after their recent win.
- Germany have won their last four meetings with Portugal, which all took place at major tournaments (WC 2006, EURO 2008, EURO 2012, WC 2014).
- Thomas Muller scored his only hat-trick with Germany against Portugal (WC 2014 group stages).
