Germany vs Portugal by iSpree
Group G with Ghana and USA in there. Germany and Portugal are the favorites to go trough this group and enter to the next round. In the previous meetings in this WC we saw planty of goals and i expext them here too.
Germany is favorite in this match. They are handled as the team with the most quality players. On the preperation games they played 2:2 against Cameroon and 6:1 vs Armenia. The last one was interesting to watch because all goals were scored in the 2nd half. Germany had difficulties to create chances and didnt had many chances in the first half. I dont see them as the big favorite in this match, because if the first step wont be done it will be hard to win here against a good Portugal team. Reus injured in this match too. Its a bit unlucky because he is a big loss for them. He had a fantastic season and scored many goals. He is the perfect winger for the Germans and i think he could have been the difference. On the other side they have Schurrle, Gotze, Muller as replacement, so the loss isnt that big as it seemed first. With Klose they have another good attacker. Sure he will be hot to score some goals to break the record of Ronadlo, 15 WM goals. He has 13, till NOW. The Germans are a tournament-team and they always are one of the favorite teams.With a defense, who always made mistakes in the preperation i see them conseding at least one goal. Their defense wasnt every time the same, but Germany should have the class with even the 2nd choice to keep a clean sheet and this wasnt the case against Algeria and Cameroon, so this is my opinion. On the other hand their Attack is world-class and should score some goals with Klose, Ozil and Co.
Portugal are also a good attacking team. Cristiano should play from the beginning. He is very important for the team. They play with more selfconfidence, when he is playing. Always the plan B that CR7 can score a cracker out of nothing in their minds, if it isnt their best day and hard to score goals. He was the best player in the last season and deserved the Balon d'Or i think. With Real Madrid he won the CL and nearly the title in Spain. Madrid wouldnt have finished this season as good if Cristiano wouldnt have scored that important goals who decided the matches. Cristiano is really important for the team and can bring Portugal back into the match if they wont be playing as good as i think they will, because with Nani Pepe and Co they have other world class players in team.
Summing it up Germany hasnt that goid defense how it seems, but a extremly goos attack. Same as Portugal, the attack is even with CR7 world class, but the defense also isnt that good. All of the games in WC until now ended with more than 2 goals expect Mexico. The reason could be the temperatur and i think in this match it wont be different.
