Germans Opposable In Group G Opener
Portugal To Beat Germany
Legend of the sport and in form football tipster Matt Le Tissier has World Cup betting advice for the Germany v Portugal Group G clash, live at 5.00pm on ITV.
Two European heavyweights lock horns in Salvador, the scene of Netherlands thrilling 5-1 win over Spain on Friday and football fans will be hoping for plenty more goals in Germany v Portugal.
Germany go into the game as favourites, but there isn’t much between the sides in the match odds market, so first time punters will be tempted by a choice of Enhanced Odds 5/2 Germany or 9/2 Portugal at Winner.
Matt Le Tissier Tips: “I said I’d be avoiding Germany in my World Cup Preview and I’m not surprised to see they have been on the drift, Bet365’s top price of 10/3 on a Portugal win looks fair enough.
It looks like being a tight game and with that in mind Betvictor’s best odds of 14/1 on a 1-0 win for Portugal certainly warrent interest. I’ll take Ronaldo to be the man to get the breakthrough and he can be backed at a boosted price of 6/1 with Ladbrokes to open the scoring.”
New William Hill customers get 5/1 Ronaldo to score anytime against Germany.
There are injury concerns in midfield for Germany who may be without Bastian Schweinsteiger, leaving Sami Khedira to partner Philipp Lahm in the middle of the park. Either Benedikt Höwedes or Jerome Boateng will start at right-back and have the unenviable task of dealing with Cristiano Ronaldo.
For Portugal, Silvestre Varela is set to start with Hugo Almeida and Cristiano Ronaldo in attack, while Pepe has returned to fitness and should return to the starting XI alongside Bruno Alves in defence.
