Germany will take on Portugal in Group F of UEFA Euro 2020 in Munich on Saturday, June 19 at 6pm CET.
Three late goals, including two from Cristiano Ronaldo, resulted in Portugal winning 3–0 against Hungary in Budapest, and a win would mean the Portuguese would not be hit by the round of 16. Germany lost the opening game against France and although they have often had good results in the tournament after a weak start in recent years, the task is no longer easy.

Carlos Machado, Portugal-reporter: Portugal are going into this game with a lot of confidence after beating Hungary 3-0 in the first game. The German style of play usually creates problems for Portugal, but there is much to suggest that Fernando Santos’s team could hold on to this opponent as well.
Who needs what for the round of 16?
Philipp Rober, German reporter: If you count his role as assistant coach, this is the fifth time that Joachim Low has prepared his team for a game against Portugal in a major tournament. Their teams have always prevailed, but there has never been a worse time to be nostalgic. Germany are under a lot of pressure, but they have taken some positives from their defeat against France, which is possible to build on. Unless we add new injuries, we will not see any change in the starting XI.
Fernando Santos, Portugal: “Portugal became a respected team at a certain point. It was seen as a strong team, but in fact there were four or five big European teams that made a lot of attention for Portugal, for the Portuguese players, but from the inside.” They always believed that they were strong and they could win, and at the moment I think there is no team in Europe or in the world that thinks they are going to play against Portugal and they think that Portugal It would be easy to defeat.
Joachim Lowe, Germany: “What I can feel is a determined mood and an attitude of absolute will. Everyone knows we want, should and will do things better. The ambition and determination of the team is still exemplary. So we Know that we can still turn things around. If we can be more effective at the front, we will be able to beat Portugal.”
