Euro 2008: Portugal vs. Germany (Who wins?)



The European Championship quarterfinals kick off today with one of the better match-ups of the round as Portugal takes on Germany.

On one side is Portugal, which looked so dominant in group play before resting its starters in a loss to Switzerland. On the other side is Germany, pre-tournament favorites who stumbled in group play and must now knock off an in-form and rested opponent.

You have Cristiano Ronaldo facing off against Michael Ballack. You have Pepe and Ricardo Carvalho squaring off against Miroslav Klose and Lukas Podolski. You have Torsten Frings doing battle with Deco.

So here’s the question for you as we get closer to kick-off today. Who do you think will win? My money is on Portugal, which just looked better in the group stage and which still boasts Ronaldo, the best player in the world right now. I say Portugal wins, 2-1.

Now it’s your turn. Who do you think will win today and why? Share your predictions below and be sure to check back in for running commentary on today’s match later on today on SBI.
