Euro 2021 Prediction: Portugal vs Germany

  • Portugal are undefeated in 22 of their last 23 matches (European Championship).
  • Portugal have kept a clean sheet in their last 3 matches (European Championship).
  • Germany have conceded in their last 4 games.

Euro 2020 Prediction: Draw

Two sides who were on the opposite end of results meet in Munich on Saturday. Germany lost out to France whilst Portugal struggled to break down Hungary but ended up running out 3-0 winners with Cristiano Ronaldo turning it on late in the match.

Those results make this game an interesting dynamic. There’s a case that both sides would be relatively happy to play out a draw. It would put Portugal on 4 points and all but through whilst a point for Germany will see them have to beat Hungary in the final game to qualify, something they should be capable of.

Portugal manager Fernando Santos likes to keep things tight, doesn’t mind his side ceding possession and being patient, that was shown in that win over Hungary. When Portugal won this trophy in 2016, they actually drew all three group games showing their penchant for a stalemate. I think they’ll be delighted with a draw here and after Germany failed to convince against France they should have enough to at least come away with a crucial point.

The draw has been chalked up at 12/5 and that makes plenty of appeal given what’s on the line.
