If Jogi Low opts for a similar 3-4-3 shape with Kroos and Gundogan in midfield and Kimmich out wide, we will have a very good chance of leaving Munich with three points. They are very susceptible to counter-attacks, so it is up to Jota, Bruno, and Bernardo to make the most out of the space they have to work with in transition. Renato, an absolute beast on counter-attacks, could prove vital, especially late in the second half against tired legs and 80+ F degree temperatures.

A draw will essentially guarantee us a place in the round of 16, but I think we really need to approach this game with only one objective. Win this game and we may only need a draw in the final match against France to secure first place in the group (unless the French absolutely batter Hungary by more than 3 goals of course).

At the end of the day, Portugal shouldn't fear any side in this tournament, but as things stand at the moment, a first place finish in our group will theoretically give us a much more manageable path to the semi finals.
