Portugal v Germany odds – Portugal set to keep it tight

We’ve got another big Group F clash taking place at the Allianz Arena on 19 June, with Germany looking to get a positive result after losing to France in their Euro 2020 opener. Die Mannschaft are betting favourites to land a victory although they were vulnerable in defence against Les Bleus, especially when faced with the pace of Kylian Mbappe.

Portugal left it late to record a 3-0 win over Hungary although the late goals has put them in a strong position to reach the last sixteen of the competition and they will be targeting that weak German central defence in a bid to stay on course for top spot in this section.

Are Portugal the Best Bet to Beat Germany?

Fernando Santos saw his team leave it late against Hungary on Tuesday night, with Raphaël Guerreiro’s deflected effort breaking the deadlock in Budapest before a Cristiano Ronaldo double added a lot of gloss to what had been a fairly testing ordeal for a side who are among the Euro 2020 betting favourites.

However, Portugal might be able to capitalise on the fact that Germany need to come forward in search of goals, with one bookie going 23/10 about a win for the current European champions which has to be regarded as a value bet.

Cristiano Ronaldo is going to be a potential thorn in the side of a German back three, with Matthias Ginter joining Mats Hummels and Antonio Rudiger in the defence against Les Bleus, while Diogo Jota didn’t have his best game against the Hungarians but can certainly provide some menace.

Are Germany Worthy Betting Favourites for Group F Clash?

Germany have been drifting on the Euro 2020 outright betting market since before the tournament started and the 2014 World Cup winners are now something of an outsider after losing to France in their first match although they could easily have secured a draw based on their attacking play and expected goals.

Die Mannschaft should certainly pose a threat to Portugal with similar personnel and we are especially interested in Serge Gnabry and Joshua Kimmich, the latter of whom operated as a wing-back in the first clash although he might be given the license to rove forward, while Gnabry looked bright against the French and could be the key to unlocking a mean Portugal defence.

The Bookies Expecting Portugal and Germany to Score

Germany can’t afford to go into their final game against Hungary with zero points on the board and the bookies have made the BTTS Yes option slightly odds-on which implies that this could be a high-scoring contest where both sides find the net during this contest.

There will certainly be lots of fantastic attacking players on display, with Timo Werner potentially given a start for the favourites, while Joao Felix could be given the opportunity for Portugal after spending the entire ninety minutes on the bench.

What Are the Best Bets for Portugal v Germany?

We think that Portugal would gladly take a draw from this match and move into the last sixteen with four points on the board before their clash with France, with Santos’ side trading at 5/4 on the Asian Handicap betting market off scratch and that means a healthy profit if they win and money back if the game is drawn.

There is also the possibility of securing betting odds of 5/6 about both teams to score, with the two teams likely to try and play on the front foot, while there’s the alternative option to have a punt on Over 2.5 Goals at evens with Paddy Power.

Ronaldo is chasing down more international scoring records and he looks a fair price at 9/2 to break the deadlock in this clash, with Bruno Fernandes trading at a lumpier 14/1 and we’re a big fan of the Manchester United midfielder who can score from range.
