Defending champions Portugal will take on Germany in the second round of Euro 2020 Group F clash on Saturday at the Allianz Arena in Munich. The match commences from at 21:30 pm (IST) onwards. Brimming with confidence after hammering a valiant Hungary 3-0, Portugal take on a demoralised German side, who were handed a 0-1 loss by World Cup champions France. It was an own goal by Mats Hummels which made the difference, but Germany could have conceded more if it wasn’t for Mbappe and Benzema being offside.
The Germans have plenty of work cut out for them and if they want to be a part of the Last 16, the 2014 World Cup champions will have to get some form of result today.
Portugal were clinical and patient in their clash against Hungary despite the goals coming in late, which includes a brace by skipper Cristiano Ronaldo. Portugal have a star studded line-up and could conjure a win if Germany once again let their guard down Manager Joachim Low will have to make some serious changes to the side that played France in order to secure a win.
