Portugal have won all five matches against Germany at U21 level. The Portuguese midfield is superior and can help their side create history by winning the 2021 Euro U21 final.

  • Germany U21 have drawn 3 of their last 4 matches (UEFA U21 European Championship).
  • Portugal U21 have won their last 5 matches against Germany U21 including friendlies (all competitions).

Portugal are 5-0 against Germany and have won all three encounters at the European U21 Championship.

Portugal won 5-0 in the semi-finals in 2015 with Bernardo Silva, Ricardo Pereira, 
Ivan Cavaleiro, João Mário and Ricardo Horta finding the net.

Germany U21 Form


Germany were unconvincing in the group stage. They started with a 3-0 win against Hungary before a 1-1 draw against Netherlands.

Stefan Kuntz’s side advanced to the knockout rounds after a 0-0 draw against Romania. They finished level on points with Netherlands and Romania and advanced on goal difference.

Germany got past Denmark in the quarter-finals. Lukas Nmecha made it 1-1 in the 88th minute and Jonathan Burkardt put them in front in extra time before conceding a penalty.

Burkardt missed Germany’s first spot kick, but Germany were perfect from then on, winning 8-7 in the penalty shootout.

Germany got off to a great start against Netherlands in the semi-finals. Florian Wirtz scored twice in the opening 8 minutes and they rode it out to secure a 2-1 victory.
