MUNICH, Germany – The biggest match of Euro 2020 thus far is set to play out this Saturday as Portugal faces Germany in Group F.

Portugal is looking to make it two wins in a row in group play while Germany needs to bounce back from their close loss against France.

Betting odds on the match are now available across all of the major online sportsbooks with Germany as the slight favorite.

Euro 2020 – 6/19/21 12:00 p.m. EST

  • Portugal +220
  • Germany +130
  • POR 0, +0.5 -120
  • GER 0, -0.5 +100
  • O 2, 2.5 -120
  • U 2, 2.5 +100

Germany enters this match as the favorite despite their 1-0 loss to France in the first round.

The only goal of that match was an own goal scored by Germany’s Matts Hummels as he attempted to clear a dangerous cross in front of the goal.

Hummels is a world-class defender but ended up putting the only goal in the net throughout the match, losing the fixture for his side.

The bright side is that Germany managed to hold an extremely powerful France side to (technically) zero goals. While they were unable to score themselves, Germany produced ten shots and controlled 59% possession against the reigning World Cup Champions.

The general consensus among media after the match was that Germany had a lot to be proud of, and simply got unlucky against one of the best teams in the competition.

Unfortunately, the path does not get any easier for Germany as they now face a red-hot Portugal squad and Christiano Ronaldo.

Portugal thrashed Hungary 3-0 in their first match, giving them three points and a tie for the lead in Group F with France.

Portugal are the defending champions at the Euros and got their repeat campaign off to a great start, extending their unbeaten run in the tournament to 12 matches.

Ronaldo scored twice in the opener, becoming the all-time leading goal scorer in the Euros with 11 goals.

A loss for Germany in this match would be extremely detrimental to their chances of progression to the knockout stage.

With Portugal carrying all the momentum, it seems that the Germans being the favorite might be a mistake at the hands of the soccer sportsbooks.

The truth is that bookies still have faith in the German defense that shined against a dynamic French attack. It remains to be seen whether Portugal can be as potent as they were on matchday one against superior competition.

Those looking for a safer way to wager on the game can find odds for a draw-no-bet result, which only pays out if the game ends with a winner.

With many implications on the line, it is likely that Germany will do whatever they can to avoid another crushing result in this match.
