PORTUGAL VS GERMANY.
Portugal left it late to break down a stubborn Hungary side in Budapest on Tuesday but once the floodgates were open the goals started flowing, although the 3-0 scoreline flatters the defending champions somewhat.
Fernando Santos was the manufacturer of his own problems in that game as they fielded a conservative midfield pivot of William Carvalho and Danilo Pereira which offered very little going forward. Renato Sanches’ introduction changed the outlook of the game, but if history is anything to go by we can expect Santos to revert to his defensive ways as they visit Munich on Saturday.
Still, their attacking prospects should be fairly good here. Portugal have won five of their last seven games and scored 16 goals in that period. They have only lost twice – against France and Ukraine – since their World Cup exit at the hands of Uruguay three years ago and they boast an array of incredible attacking talents.
Prediction:Both teams to score.
