Portugal looked like they were struggling to break Hungary’s defense in the opener, but they eventually did and they recorded a confident win. They will now look for at least a point when they will clash against Germany on Saturday.
Germany did not look very good in their own match against France, but they were also pretty unlucky losing that match because of an own goal.
Portugal could have won much easier than they did if Diogo Jota made some better decisions in the start of the match.
Portugal had the leading role but it was hard for them to break down Hungary’s defense. The two teams entered the half-time break tied at 0-0 and coach Santos knew he had to make some changes.
The introduction of Rafa Silva at the 71st minute gave Portugal a breath of fresh air, as it was this guy that handed out 3 assists in the last 10 minutes of the match. Cristiano Rolando scored 2 of those goals and is now the leading scorer in the EUROs.
Portugal might make some changes in their lineup, as Rafa Silva needs to be awarded after such an impeccable performance. However, Portugal might opt for a more defensive line-up in the match against Germany, as the Germans are a much more dangerous team in the offense.
Germany will surely be kicking themselves after what happened in the opening match against France.
They saw defender Mats Hummels score an impressive goal at the 20th minute, the only caveat is that it was on the wrong end of the pitch.
After a parallel shot from France’s Hernandez, it was Hummels who somehow got in the way of the ball, sending it deep into his own net. Germany’s attempts to create chances were destroyed by a very compact French defense, and that’s most likely going to be the case against Portugal.
Germany absolutely need to get at least one point here before clashing against Hungary in the final match of the group.
A loss here could potentially see them drop out in the group stage of the second consecutive big tournament.
Portugal vs. Germany Prediction:
Germany’s defense will surely have a handful against Cristiano Ronaldo and the rest of the Portuguese armada. It was clear that they need more room in order to operate, and Portugal is simply not going to give them that.
Portugal might make some changes from the match against Hungary in order to safeguard their defense against a potentially dangerous German offensive line.
Taking Portugal with +0.25 here, while the Under 2.5 Goals is not out of the question. Germany will have to go all-in at some point and that might leave open spaces for Portugal to operate.
This looks like it will have more goals in the second half than it will in the first.
