Germany has beaten some tough opponents on their journey to the finals, but now it’s the time to step up and to play their best game yet, and they will need it.
Portugal has been absolutely brilliant, and they have nothing but wins in this tournament. Portugal has scored 12 goals in total in this tournament while conceding only 3 goals. All of this is just going in favor of what I said before, Portugal is the best youth team in the world.

Portugal has scored a goal in the 80th minute, and they have won this match 0-1. Mota, Trincao, and Conceicao are the leading goalscorers for Portugal with 2 goals each. Portugal has been on fire, and not just in this tournament because their winning streak has been going on for a while now, and I gotta say, they absolutely deserve to be here. As we can see, Portugal’s defense has been fantastic in this tournament, and they have been under a lot of pressure against Spain. Portugal is the favorite here, at least in my mind, but that doesn’t mean they can relax and not take this game seriously, because if they do, it will cost them a lot.
Germany and Portugal have played 5 games against each other, and Portugal has won all 5 of those games. Germany might be undefeated in their last 9 games, but Portugal is on a 12-game winning streak. We are getting a fantastic price on the better team here, and that is Portugal.
