For today’s Euro 2020 betting tips, we have a galactic matchup on our hands as the defending champions Portugal take on 3-time winners Germany. With the match to be played at Allianz Arena on 19th June 2021, Germany looks set to make a comeback from defeat and keep their hopes alive for qualification.
The Portuguese are strong and backed up by a solid first-round performance, in the form of while the Germans will count on their superior head-to-head to overpower the defending champions. This game surely has all the ingredients for a blockbuster and is worth putting your bet on!
The Portuguese team have come into a major tournament as defending champions for the first time in their history, and it could not have come at a better time for them. The team is strong and carries immense promise and talent in addition to a few galacticos. The likes of Bruno Fernandes, Ruben Dias, Bernardo Silva, Pepe and Ronaldo have all had decent seasons.
Fernando Santos’s team, back from a 3-0 victory in the opening fixture, will be the favourites to win the match in our Euro 2020 betting tips for Canada, thanks to the dip in form of the Germans in recent years.
Joachim Löw and his team will be giving it their all. After a close defeat to the World Champions in the opening round of fixtures, the match against Cristiano & co. will pretty much decide their fate in the competition. The Germans have always been a team with eleven world-class players rather than having one superstar, and that is how they’ll have to perform for the remainder of this tournament if they want to add to their three European titles.
All being said, counting the Germans out from the Euro 2020 betting tips would be a fallacy given their huge stature in the footballing world.
These two supergiants have met 18 times, with the most recent contest being the 2014 FIFA World Cup group stage match. Thomas Muller’s hattrick saw the Germans register a 4-0 win over the Portuguese. Making it four successive Germany victories against Portugal. As a matter of fact, the last time the Portuguese Football Team got the better of the Germans was 21 years ago in Euro 2000 at Feyenoord, Rotterdam. Germany, however, have since beaten Portugal 3-1 in the third-place play-off at the 2006 World Cup and twice at EURO final tournaments. All these results mean the head-to-head between the two nations favour the Germans pretty dominantly with ten wins and five draws in 18 matches, and just three wins for the Portuguese.
Germany’s home record against Portugal is quite staggering, with only a single defeat in six matches played. The Mannschaft have won three of those games and drawn in the other two. This is Portugal’s only second match at the Football Arena Munich; they lost the 2006 World Cup semi-final 1-0 to France at the stadium, their only previous game in Munich.
The Portuguese are one of the favourites to win the tournament and have the strongest team in decades. Also, Germany’s lack of golden touch will see them lose the match. Expect goals galore, with Portugal winning the tie.
Coming into the tournament with two titles in the last two UEFA competitions, the Portuguese Football team’s value has rocketed. Despite the poor head-to-head record, they will be the favourites to win the tie. Although, the Germans have the advantage of playing in Munich in front of their home crowd, as the away team, of course.
Portugal have a lethal attacking lineup with a sturdy defence and stable midfield. Their star players are set to shine on the biggest stage in Europe, and we saw a glimpse of it in the last 10 minutes vs Hungary. Cristiano Ronaldo, their talisman, will be boosted with confidence after a brace. Portugal will look to seal qualification for the round of 16 here before they face mighty France in the third round of group fixtures.
Being a blockbuster international fixture and one to watch from wherever you are in the Universe, in a major footballing tournament, the odds being offered are bountiful. The 9/4 odds for a Portuguese win on Bet365 looks like an excellent market to punt on.
