In the Group B match of the Euro 2012 2nd string of group games we will have two of the favourites to go all the way in the competition taking on each other in, Germany and Holland and this is a huge game for both the sides for different reasons as Holland will be looking to bounce back from their opening match defeat in the hands of Denmark while Germany will be looking to book their place in the quarter finals of the Euro 2012.
Holland are coming into this match on the back of a bad defeat when they lost to Denmark by 1-0, and it was a hugely surprising result for the dutch side who were tipped to be one of the hot favorites to go all the way. They need to win this match to keep their hopes alive for the Qualification from this round and they have two difficult matches to cope with. If they lose this game they will surely be out of the competition.
Germany on the other hand can book their place in the quarterfinals with a good win in this one, and now they are one of the favorites to win the competition with all the other big sides struggling for form at the moment.
