Germany beat Portugal 1-0 Saturday on the second day at the European Championship, while Denmark upset the Netherlands in 1-0 win earlier in the day.

It was quite possibly the biggest shock we will see throughout the tournament, but if you were watching the match, it came by no surprise.

The Dutch wasted scoring chance after scoring chance, as the trio of Robin van Persie, Arjen Robben and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, just couldn’t find the back of the net against a solid Danish side.

With their backs against the wall, the Dutch now have to grab at least one point to stay alive, and their scoring opportunities will be even more limited against a very stingy German defense that shutout Portugal striker Cristiano Ronaldo. [ad-3678122]

It wouldn’t surprise me if Holland boss Bert van Marwijk decides to make some drastic changes to his starting XI, in particularly in the mid field, which in their match against the Danes provided no creativity or passing consistency.

Meanwhile, the Germans played a staunch match with the Portuguese, finally breaking the nil-nil deadlock on a headed goal from Mario Gomez in the 72nd minute.

Looking ahead, the key players for this match will be midfielders Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mesut Ozil and Toni Kroos. If they can replicate their efforts against Portugal, this match is theirs to lose.

Finally, one of the more positive aspects of this German squad is its ability to also maintain a very good defesive posture while moving the ball up field.

This was a big concern going into the tournament, but so far, they have played very well.

Matt’s Free Pick– Germany, 1-0 — In a match between two sides that play moderately similar styles, the difference here will be which midfield performs with consistency.

One of the more positive aspects of Coach Joachim Low’s side. The Netherlands has a potent attack for sure, but I don’t expect then to get a fraction of the chances they were allowed against Denmark.
