How to watch, what to watch for Tuesday, June 15 Euro 2021 schedule

We take a look at how to watch and what to watch for during Tuesday’s group stage play at UEFA’s European Championship.

Final scores

Portugal 3, Hungary 0
France 1, Germany 0

There will only be two games on day five of the 2020 European Championship on Tuesday. The first match will be between Hungary and Portugal and a thrilling France-Germany match will follow up. The slate is small, but there are plenty of top-notch players to watch.

Cristiano Ronaldo is still as dynamic as ever and will remain Portugal’s star in 2021. The Juventus forward leads Serie A with 29 goals and is six goals from tying the all-time record for goals (106) scored at the international level. Ronaldo can also pass Cesc Fabregas and Andres Iniesta’s all-time high of 11 Euro games won with one more victory. If you want to witness electric showmanship while historic moments unfold, watch Portugal.

France Kylian Mbappe could be the best footballer in the world soon. The 21-year-old forward leads Ligue 1 in scoring with 27 goals in 31 games. He’s also tied for fifth in assists with seven. There’s no player faster on the pitch, and few can match Mbappe’s flair. he could very well lead the tournament in goals.

Manuel Neuer is a top-three keeper in the world at worst, but that doesn’t make him Germany’s most exciting player. Germany has an abundance of versatile, skilled midfielders, but few are can match Joshua Kimmich. The 26-year-old can play virtually every position and can score, distribute, and win balls effectively. His well-rounded game will impact his team’s first match from start to finish.

Euro 2021 Tuesday, June 15 schedule

Hungary vs. Portugal

Time: 11:30 a.m.
TV channel: ESPN
Live stream: WatchESPN, ESPN+
Moneyline: Hungary +650, Portugal -200, Tie +310
Total goals: 2.5 (Over +106, Under -129)

France vs. Germany

Time: 2:30 p.m.
TV channel: ESPN
Live stream: WatchESPN, ESPN+
Moneyline: France +155, Germany +200, Tie +215
Total goals: 2.5 (Over +116, Under -139)

Best Bet: Kylian Mbappe to score a goal (+200)

My preferred bet would’ve been for Ronaldo to score, but his odds are -110 and that’s not very enticing. Mbappe scores at a ridiculous rate himself and averaged nearly two shots on target per game last season. Germany has sturdy defense and goalkeeping, but a world-class scorer like Mbappe is very likely to make the net bulge at least once. He’s scored 17 goals in 44 international caps.
