What's the story?

Three late goals, including two by serial history-maker Cristiano Ronaldo, ensured a 3-0 victory for Portugal against Hungary in Budapest and a second win would seal their qualification – avoiding the tension of their narrow third-place squeak through at UEFA EURO 2016 (not that it did them any harm in the end). Germany were given a tough night by France in Munich, and while they have often come good after making a slow start over the years, their task is far from easy now.

Reporters' views

Carlos Machado, Portugal reporter: Buoyed by their opening 3-0 defeat of Hungary, Portugal head into this game brimming with confidence. Germany's style tends to cause Portugal problems, but there's plenty to suggest that Fernando Santos's side can get at their opponents too.

Philip Röber, Germany reporter: If you include his role as an assistant coach, this is the fifth time Joachim Löw will prepare his side for a match against Portugal at a major tournament. His teams have always come out on top, but there has never been a worse time for nostalgia. Germany are under severe pressure but do have a few positives to build on from the France defeat. It's unlikely we will see any changes to the starting XI unless there are fresh injuries.

What the coaches say

Fernando Santos, Portugal coach: "I'm not afraid of Germany at all. I think the two teams will respect each other because they know that on both sides there are powerful forces capable of deciding the game. To think that Portugal are favourites against Germany, playing in Germany, is crossing the line. If the players fell into that way of thinking, we wouldn't even draw this game!"

Joachim Löw, Germany coach: "Portugal do not only have Cristiano Ronaldo in attack, but four or five other players with outstanding abilities. They are capable of deciding big matches like this on their own. They are adaptable and technically strong. It is so difficult keeping them at bay because it's so tough to take the ball away from them."
