Germany – 6/5 Bet Victor
Portugal – 7/2 Stan James
Draw – 3/1 Totesport
Portugal has fallen foul to a stalemate against Macedonia and a 3-1 defeat to Turkey. Some may say they have simply not exhausted themselves in preparations. Germany in retrospect have been scoring freely, including a 5-3 thriller versus the Swiss. Since have had a convincing 2-0 victory over Israel. The German camp will be upbeat, as this is a crown they want to win back.
Being the opening match, the Germans will want to bank on maximum points. They will know the Portuguese will be by no means walkovers, but scoring five goals in two friendlies have fired a warning to their competitors that they mean Business. The Germans are more than capable of winning the match. We feel people will have them on their accumulators, many of which staking small to yield big returns.
Yes the Portuguese have a wealth of talent in their squad. Ronaldo will need to spark, but we find it difficult to believe they can beat the Germans. We think Germany will be able to overcome the odds and bank all three points.
Germany – Win 90 minutes
