Group A winners Portugal and Group B runner-ups Germany in the first quarter finals match. I want Germany to win since i hate portugal and really hate ronaldo.

Goooo Germany!

Seriously though... ronaldo is going to pull a massive dive and cheat the germans out of the semis.

I am predicting a 2-1 Germany win with Klose and Podolski scoring.

with the way germany has been playing.. i doubt they'll score 5 goals... even one with a stellar portugal defense compared to a lower austria defense. A 2-0 victory for portugal. Ronaldo free-kick and deco goal.

boooo. ronaldo will not score but he'll play a good game. Germany will catch them slipping though, 2-1, or 2-2 and winning on pens.

I think Germany will win 1-0 with a Podolski goal, AND hoping one of the Germany defenders breaks all of cr7's left foots metatarsals.

i hate both of these teams. germany doesn't deserve anything really and i'm suprised alll these people are picking them to win this game. of what they've shown thus far, what makes you think they'll win? they can't finish (except podolski), their defense isn't exactly a typical german defense, and they don't really have a real playmaker. i don't consider ballack a playmaker and you never know which ballack you're going to get, the croatia game ballack or the poland game ballack.
i think by default portugal will win in a sh*tty 1-0 win where the goal bounces off the crossbar and like, hits lehman on the back of the head and goes in (which i can see happening)

At this point, Germany isn't really playing that well. Sure they're getting the job done with a 1-0 win against austria, but it wasn't that much more progressed than the 2-0 defeat at the hands of Croatia along with what now seems like a mediocre victory against Poland. Few real chances created and just not a whole lot of energetic play all around.

Portugal has been playing fairly well as of late. They beat the Czech Republic 3-1 ,but then we see the same Czech team collapse against a lively and outright cheap Turkish side (who im not too fond of) so who knows how good they really are.

I see this game going either 2-0 or 2-1 in favor of Portugal. I see more spark in their play and think Ronaldo can change the game if needed and really, the guy scares me when he gets the ball. I could be wrong, but either way the game should be a good one.

Germany will lose against Portugal but I am hoping they reverse that. *Prays*
