The Germans cruised through qualification for Euro 2012 as they won all ten of their matches and never looked in danger of missing this summer's championships. They scored 34 and conceded only seven, with bookmakers fancying their chances of going all the way this summer.

Money-Back Special - If Portugal beat the Germans, bookmaker Paddy Power will refund all losing first goalscorer, last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast singles on this match.

Portugal didn't make qualifying quite so straightforward as they surprisingly finished second to Denmark in Group H, losing to Denmark and Norway in the process. They bounced back to pip Norway to the runners up spot on goal difference and disposed of Bosnia Herzegovina in fine fashion in a two-legged play-off match.
