Neither of these two sides were particularly convincing on Saturday and with Group F still wide open, there is plenty at stake here. Portugal took the lead, however, they couldn’t cope with Germany’s energy.
Fernando Santos is often accused of being too negative and although his side produced a decent number of efforts and an xG of 2.05, they looked wide open at the back. Having struggled to find the net against Hungary during the first half of their opening group game, there are still questions surrounding this Portuguese side, despite the wealth of talent at their disposal. France haven’t been completely convincing so far despite sitting on four points.
Les Bleus were the better side against Hungary, yet they couldn’t convert their chances. They fired in 15 shots and ended the game with an xG of 1.97 and will look to create opportunities in this contest. This could be a cracker of a game and it’s difficult to pick a winner.
However, neither of these sides looked assured at the back on Saturday and therefore backing BTTS may just be a safer option.
