Germany has to charge
When Germany meets Portugal in their own country at the U 19 European championship the host stands under a lot of pressure. If they have to suffer a defeat their drop put is fixed. Their rival Portugal also needs a victory but they already have one point on their account. Kick-off on the 14th of July at 7.30 p.m..
Current performance of Germany
Germany probable has imagined their first match a little bit different. The match against Italy has been lost closely with a score of 0:1. A curious fact is that as well as the A national team a hand play was the undoing for them. Therefore their rivals get a penalty kick and scored a goal. Nonetheless the team of Trainer Guido Streichsbier has shown a great performance. We will see how the team can handle the situation and the pressure that they have to win and also in front of their own audience. It wouldn’t be very surprising if the great scenery would hinder the team. However, Germany has player in their squad who should be used to such situations and also should handle the pressure. In general they have some players who are very talented for example Hoffenheims Philipp Ochs or Max Besuschkow from the VFB Stuttgart. One problem against Italy was not using the goal chances. If they can fix the problem they are definitely able to win against Portugal.
Current performance of Portugal
After the A national team has won the EURO this year, the young professionals should be highly motivated to emulate Christiano Ronaldo & Co to also win the U19 EURO. One good sign is that the team of Fernando Santos also started with a score of 1:1 at the tournament. This drawn has also played against an outsider. Portugal has some players with great skills for example Diogo Goncalves who is currently active at the b-team of Benfica Lissabon. What he is worth for the team you see at the opt-out clause of 35 million euros that is in his contract. Almost the same high expectations are required from Joao Carvalho who is also a talent from Benfica. At the qualification matches they have been in a great shape. Slovenia has been beaten this year in March with a score of 3:1. At the match against Austria they had an early backlog but in the end they had luck that the match did not end with a score of 0:2. They need to avoid this situation against Germany. The defence has shown some weakness at the first match that’s why Emilio Peixe will trust again his defence system of 4-4-1-1.
Betting tip for this match
Germany really needs to win this match. Also a drawn could keep their chances alive. The host probable will win this match and will play with a lot of pressure at the beginning of the match. We think that this will be rewarded and they will win this match. Our tip: tip 1.
