For Germany, goal keeper Manuel Neuer will return after resting for a month with a shoulder injury, and Bastian Schweinsteiger will play after having treatment on his foot. Portuguese Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo continues to be under a fitness cloud with an ongoing knee problem, but has been named in today’s line-up.

Prediction & Tip

Another mouth watering fixture in what has been an excellent World Cup so far. Portugal do boast current Ballon d’Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo, but Germany’s unquestionable class across the park should see them get up for the win. We’re tipping a 2-1 victory to Germany, and like the exotic bet of 3rd goal scored by Germany, currently going at 19/10 at Ladbrokes.
