Germany are left with a mountain to climb in their efforts to stay alive in the Euro 2020 as defending champions Portugal lay in wait to send them crashing out. The Die Mannschaft created a few chances against France in their opener but looked far from convincing as they crashed to a 1-0 defeat. The result continued a series of poor performances in major tournament under Joachim Low for the Germans who will have to come out all guns blazing tonight. Opponents Portugal needed a late Cristiano Ronaldo show to help beat Hungary but their overall pattern of play was good.

Germany will look to make a few changes in the forward line with Leroy Sane likely coming into the playing eleven in place of Kai Havertz. Serge Gnabry had a game to forget against the French and Chelsea forward Timo Werner is a candidate to play as the lone man up top. Toni Kroos and Ilkay Gundogan had a pedestrian approach in the previous match and Germany could do with an enforcer in midfield like Leon Goretzka.
Portugal manager Fernando Santos could be tempted to field an unchanged line up against Germany but winger Rafa Silva may alter these plans. The pacey winger stretched the Hungary defence when he came on late in the last match and Germany could struggle to keep a lid on him. Cristiano Ronaldo played well as a frontman despite starting most games out wide for Juventus last season. Joao Felix and Renato Sanches are good options from the bench and Portugal may need them in such a crunch tie.
