Option No. 1: Germany qualifies, Portugal qualifies

Germany and Portugal are first and second respectively in the group standings, so this theoretically should be the most likely outcome to occur. Yet as we've discussed, literally anything can happen in this group.

Any points from Germany would ensure them qualification to the next round, so a win or a draw against Denmark is enough for them to be guaranteed first place. Portugal, then, are dependent on the Germany match for their qualification—needing them to win or draw against Denmark. A draw means that Portugal must beat Holland; a win means that they need only a draw to qualify second.

---

Option No. 2: Germany qualifies, Denmark qualifies

The first way in which this could happen is if Germany and Denmark have a draw, and Netherlands beat Portugal. This would place Germany on seven points, Denmark on four and Portugal on three—giving both sides qualification to the quarterfinals.

Denmark could also beat Germany, which would place both teams on six points—meaning that the two sides need a draw or a loss from Portugal to ensure their qualification.

---

Option No. 3: Germany qualifies, Holland qualifies

Sitting last in the group without a single point, Holland can still qualify for the next round of competition, but they will need some results to fall their way.

Holland must beat Portugal first, and they must do it by at least two goals. That would take them to three points overall and an even goal difference. Germany must then beat Denmark, which would leave the Danes on three points, but more importantly, a negative goal difference. Holland would then beat Portugal in their head-to-head encounter, seeing that the two sides have the same points and goal difference.

There is still some hope for Holland.

---

Option No. 4: Denmark qualifies, Portugal qualifies

There is also the chance that Germany could be eliminated from the tournament despite not dropping a point in their opening two games. If Denmark can manage to beat the Germans and Portugal can give Holland their third loss of the tournament, then Germany could possibly be eliminated.

Should that scenario happen, all three teams (Germany, Denmark, Holland) would find themselves on six competition points—meaning that goal difference comes in to the equation.

If Denmark beat Germany by two goals and Portugal beat the Netherlands by a single goal, then the current group leaders would be eliminated on goal difference. Denmark would qualify first with six points and a plus-two goal difference, Portugal second with six points and a plus-one goal difference and Germany would be eliminated with six points and an even goal difference.

Now that truly would be chaotic times.

Group B: Sunday
Denmark (3) v Germany (6), Portugal (3) v Netherlands (0)


• Germany are not quite through, but will be as group winners if they draw. They will be knocked out, though, if they lose to Denmark by any result other than a one-goal defeat in which Germany score at least two AND Portugal win.

• Denmark will progress with any win. A draw will only be good enough if Portugal lose. If Denmark lose they are out.

• Portugal will be through with victory unless Denmark win by a one-goal margin (other than 2-1 and 1-0). They will progress with a draw unless Denmark win. Portugal will also be through if they lose by a one-goal margin and Denmark are also beaten.

• The Netherlands must win by a two-goal margin and hope Denmark also lose.

Perhaps. But Denmark have a knack of turning up when Denmark are severe underdogs. However, I unfortunately can't see beyond a comfortable German win, and the standings in the table will remain the same.

I expect Holland to win, but Denmark can get a scoreless draw.

Disappointing first half.

Just missing the final ball on a few occasions and very slow to get off the mark to launch a counter from a couple turnovers.

Just get a feeling that the warm conditions in Ukraine are not helping either.

Denmark impressive. Olsen has really put together an excellent team.

Denmark's defence is a bit comical at times. Daniel Agger had to bail out Simon Kjaer a few times [Kjaer is overrated IMO]. And Germany should have been four up by now. Some absolute clear cut chances wasted by Muller and Gomez.

Fingers crossed this result remains the same and the Dutch win their game. That's the only hope.

Agree. Its been a very good game. Even Denmark play better football than England.

Germany have been a little disappointing for me but i expect its because out of the group they're the one's that can afford to take it easy.

Danny Agger's been boss.

Germany are now toying with Denmark. Feels as if Denmark are only in the game because Germany have allowed it.

Germany should have been cruising by now. But a draw is also good enough for them to finish top.

Denmark's only prayer is Holland.
