Euro 2020 Football Tips – Saturday 19th June

Author: Published: June 19, 2021

Euro 2020 TipsWe are nine days into the tournament and already, the final set of second games in the Group Stages are set to be played. The late game comes from Group E, with Spain hoping to pick up a win against a Polish side who are also looking for their first win of the tournament.

Prior to that, the four teams in Group F will be in action with France taking on Hungary in Budapest in what looks like a tricky game for Didier Deschamps men, while in the other game Germany need to get something from a tricky looking clash with Portugal v Germany in Munich.

By now some teams will have already claimed a spot in the knockout phase of the tournament, for the rest, there are the final group games coming up over the next four days for them to clinch a spot.

Here’s my tips for these games on Saturday.

Today’s Games

  • Group F – France V Hungary (2pm, Budapest)
  • Group F – Portugal V Germany (5pm, Munich)
  • Group E – Spain V Poland (8pm, Seville)

Euro 2020 Tips: Saturday 19th June

France VS Hungary
19/06/2021 2:00 pm GMT

Key Stats

France were deserving 1-0 winners over Germany in their opening match in Munich.
Hungary lost three late goals against Portugal to succumb to a 3-0 defeat in their opener.
A win for France would qualify them for the knockout phase.
France have won all of their last five games against Hungary, scoring 12, conceding 3.

Analysis

France were excellent in their 1-0 win over Germany, although that scoreline doesn’t really do justice to how dominant France were, especially in the last third of the field, where Germany stuttered, France looked bright and inventive.

They face a Hungary side that frustrated Portugal for long periods, before capitulating late on conceding three goals in the last six minutes. I fear they could find this France team an even more daunting prospect, even at home in Budapest.

Given their lack of penetration in attack against Portugal, I can’t see Hungary grabbing a goal in this one, but I can see France scoring at least a couple to ease to a comfortable win, which would likely put them top of the group, albeit potentially only temporarily.

As such, backing France to win to nil looks like the smart bet here.

Prediction

France to win to nil - £10 returns £20.50

Portugal VS Germany
19/06/2021 5:00 pm GMT

Key Stats

Portugal top Group F after a 3-0 win over Hungary in their opening game.
Germany lie third after a 1-0 defeat at home to France in their first game.
Germany have won all of the last four against Portugal (scoring 11, conceding 3).
The teams have met 18 times, Germany winning 10, Portugal just 3, with 5 draws.

Analysis

Portugal began their defence of the title they won in 20176 in style with a 3-0 win over Hungary, with Cristiano Ronaldo’s two late goals taking him clear as the highest ever goalscorer in European Championship finals history.

However, despite dominating possession, Portugal found Hungary very difficult to break down and I can see them having similar problems against a Germany side who found France too hot to handle in their opening game.

I can see worrying cracks in this German team. They lack pace throughout the team and could not cope with the pace of Mbappe in particular. They looked easy to defend against and while they kept the ball well, they never really troubled France a great deal.

I don’t think either manager would turn their nose up at a draw here, assuming that France win in Hungary in the final game of the second phase of games and as such, I think that is the most likely outcome.

Spain VS Poland
19/06/2021 8:00 pm GMT

Key Stats

Spain were held 0-0 by Sweden in their opening game of the tournament.
Poland were beaten 2-1 by Slovakia in their opening game.
Midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak is suspended for Poland for this game.
The teams have met 10 times, Spain winning 8, Poland 1 with 1 draw.

Analysis

Spain started like a steam train against Sweden but in the face of resolute Swedish defending, they eventually ran out of ideas and by the end of the game, it was Sweden probably cursing the more having missed arguably the two best opportunities in that game.

Poland went a goal down to Slovakia, struck back early in the second half, but then the sending off of Krychowiak really turned the game in Slovakia’s favour and the 2-1 defeat was a bitter blow to the Poles who now face the tricky task of taking on Spain in Seville.

Robert Lewandowski gives them a puncher’s chance here, but Poland didn’t get him into the game against Slovakia and I can’t see them doing that against a much stronger outfit in Spain

It’s quite a tricky one to call this as I am sure Spain will win, but I have no idea what scoreline that will be by, it could be 1-0, it could be 6-3. With that in mind, I am not backing any kind of result here but after their strikers drawing a blank against Sweden, I think Gerard Moreno starts here and he looks good value in the anytime scorer market.

Gerard Moreno (Spain) to score anytime - £10 returns £24.00
