The match for 5th place between Germany and Portugal has no ramifications for qualification, but as both teams are somewhat rested they could put on a decent show. Meanwhile Norway and Slovenia, both no doubt exhausted after yesterday’s matches, will be playing for bronze and a direct ticket to the 2021 World Championships. So they actually have something to play for as the loser will have to play a 2-leg qualifier for World Championship qualification in June.

Odds are from 10 Bet Sportsbook

John’s choice:
– Current bankroll: 910.89 euros
– Yesterday’s result: Norway’s Sander Sagosen, less than 6.5 goals; (2.1, +210); Bet 100 euros to win 110; Lost 100 euros as Sagosen scored 10 goals.
– Pick of the day: Germany (-1.5) vs Portugal (1.84, +119); Bet 100 euros to win 84.03. Germany play a solid defense and they will stifle Portugal’s creative offense. They are simply the best team here and now it is impossible for Portugal to sneak up on anyone. Germany will be ready.

Samo’s choice(s):
– Current bankroll: 1795.25 euros
– Yesterday’s Results: Norway’s Goran Johannessen Total Goals – Over 3.5@ (2.00 /+100); Bet 100 euros to win 100; Earn 100 euros as Johannessen scored 4 against Croatia
– Choice of the day: No choice today.
