Portugal lost the last four matches to Germany. Will the Portuguese manage to interrupt the losing streak on June 19? Find the answer in our expert’s prediction. How will the match turn out?

Portugal national football team

The Portuguese national team has shown a very solid game in the Nations League. Despite the fact that Fernando Santos' team failed to make it to the playoffs, they managed to seriously fight against France. The "Selected team" finished second, lagging behind the French by only three points - Croatia and Sweden were 10 points behind.

In qualifying for the World Cup, Portugal were not in the strongest group. In the company of Serbia, Luxembourg, Ireland, and Azerbaijan, the Portuguese clearly stood out. Starting with a modest 1:0 victory over Azerbaijan, the Portuguese lost points in the second round, having ended in a 2:2 draw with Serbia. However, a 3:1 victory over Luxembourg allowed the Portuguese to rise to the top spot in the group.

In the first round of Euro 2020, the Portuguese national team almost stumbled. In the confrontation with Hungary, the "Selected team" was considered the clear favorite but was not able to open the score until 84 minutes. Nevertheless, Portugal increased the pressure on the opponent's goal and realized the moment six minutes before the final whistle. For the remaining time, Cristiano Ronaldo still managed to score a double - a 3:0 victory allowed the Portuguese to be in the first place of the group.

Germany national football team

The German national team played poorly in the Nations League. Joachim Löw's team ended up in the group together with Spain, Switzerland, and Ukraine. As a result, the Bundestim failed to fully strain the Spaniards, losing first place to them. Moreover, in the last round, the Germans were literally smashed by the "Red Fury" - six goals flew into their gates, in response they failed to score a single one.

After an outright failure in this tournament, Germany started qualifying for the World Cup - Armenia, North Macedonia, Romania, Iceland, and Liechtenstein were in the group with the Germans. After fairly confident victories over Iceland (3:0) and Romania (1:0), Germany stumbled again, losing sensationally at home 1:2 to North Macedonia.

In the opening match of the European Championship, the Germans again did not show their best game. In the confrontation with France, it was not possible to catch on the points. Mats Hummels' own goal decided the outcome of the meeting, but it hardly makes sense to blame the Bundestim defender for this defeat - in the second half, the "Tricolors" had a huge advantage and miraculously did not bring the score to a devastating one.

Statistics

  • In eight matches, where Germany failed to win, the score was 1:1 three times.
  • Portugal have scored in the last two matches in the second half.
  • Germany have scored in the second half in three of their last four matches.
  • In only one of the last five international games, a penalty was rewarded.

Our Prediction

The Portuguese national team was able to achieve their goal in the first round and earned the most important three points - one point in the upcoming meeting can guarantee Santos' team a ticket to the playoffs. Germany are playing at home and will definitely strive to win, but the Germans have a huge number of problems in the game, which cannot be said about stable Portugal, which suffered only one defeat in 16 last matches.

The Portuguese are not inferior to their opponents in class and look more stable and balanced; they have chances for at least one point. We believe that Germany cannot win. 

We predict that Portugal will win for 3.3 in 1XBET.
