World Cup Betting Tips
Germany (1.95) v Portugal (4.20); Draw (3.60)
Three-time World Cup winners Germany remain the odds-on favourites in Salvador on Monday, despite coming up against a Portugal side containing Cristiano Ronaldo.
Die Mannschaft have concerns over Bastian Schweinsteiger, so long-term absentee Sami Khedira may be risked in the centre of midfield, alongside converted defender Philipp Lahm.
Germany have had to deal with a number of injuries in the run-up to the World Cup, with Joachim Low expected to field four central defenders across the backline.
Germany have reached the semi-final stage or beyond in each of the last three World Cups, but die Adler’s attacking fluid displays during qualification could lead to an open and exciting match today.
Opponents Portugal should have world-beater Cristiano Ronaldo fit for the match in Salvador, who almost single-handedly knocked out Sweden in the World Cup play-offs.
Paulo Bento’s side do boast creative talent Joao Moutinho in the centre of midfield, whilst Real Madrid defender Pepe leads a commanding presence at the back.
Portugal have won just three of their last 17 games against Germany and Joachim Low’s high-tempo side should have the upper hand in the Group G opener tonight.
