Portugal will face Germany at Allianz Arena in Munich at 8 PM CET for the second fixture of EURO 2020’s Group F which includes two other powerful teams, France and Hungary. Portugal won their first encounter against Hungary with a 3-goal margin thanks to Raphaël Guerreiro and Cristiano Ronaldo who concretised their team’s chances and showed their readiness to compete seriously with Germany and France for a qualifying ticket. The mission in this match will be different however since the Portughese will be encountering a threatened Germany who will do everything possible to win, otherwise, this Euros would announce a complete German failure. This is why Portugal need to approach this match with the needed attentivity while at the same time knowing when to attack and when to wait for their opponents in their own half.
For Germany however, and following their 1-0 loss against France, this match will be a must-win one to prove that they are still in the race for qualification and especially to start playing as they should, with the right mentality and the adequate amount of intensity. Germany will need to avoid the defensive mistakes commited in the first match if they really plan on winning, since Portugal can be very dangerous especially in counter-attacks. Therefore, the defensive line composed of Mats Hummels, Matthias Ginter and Antonio Rüdiger will have to remain focused throughout the match while both Joshua Kimmich and Robin Gosens’s defensive support will be very valuable.
At the same time, realism and effective finishing inside the final third will be key to winning this match as Germany’s attacking players have been lacking concentration in front of the goal and this created problems for them lately. Players like Thomas Müller, Serge Gnabry, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner will need to work on this aspect and be clinical while favouring the collective tactics over the individual options in order to break the opposing defence.
