Ronaldo sashays through the inside right position and slides the ball to Silva in the area. His shot is blocked, and Portugal have a corner.
Germany are casually knocking it around here, killing time. We're done in this one, and what a night we have in store on Wednesday.
Ironic cheers from the German crowd as Ronaldo overruns the ball in the bottom right corner to give Germany a goal kick. We'll have a minimum of four more minutes.
A long, diagonal cross from Sancho finds Pepe in the area. He heads back across goal dangerously and Germany scramble it behind for a corner.
Semedo gets away down the right for Portugal and wins a corner.
- OffSerge GnabryGermany
- OnLeroy SanéGermany
Another change for Germany, as Leroy Sane comes on for Gnabry.
- OffDiogo JotaPortugal
- OnAndré SilvaPortugal
Andre Silva replaces Jota for Portugal.
CHANCE! Portugal cough the ball up in the German half, and are outnumbered; Goretzka leads a three on two break, running it to within 20 yards and then hosing his shot a yard over the bar.
We were inches from this being a one goal game there. Portugal are snapping around at the heels of the German players here; you do wonder what might have happened had they started with this kind of intensity.
OFF THE POST! Portugal work a corner short to Sanches. He utterly creams one from 25 yards out, which batters the post and flies back out with Neuer rooted. What a strike!
- Yellow cardMatthias GinterGermany
Ginter absolutely flattens Jota in the middle of the German half, and is booked for his troubles.
Credit to Portugal here, they're not chucking this in. They're playing positive forward passes here, but can't quite get the ball in behind Germany.
Two more changes for Germany; Havertz and Gundogan off, Leon Goretzka and Niklas Sule on.
If goal difference turns out to be a factor in Portugal's future, that might be more than the consolation it looks like at the moment; it's five for, four against in the tournament for them to date.
- GoalDiogo JotaPortugal
GOAL! Portugal 2 (Jota 67) Germany 4
Well now! The free kick from the left clears everyone. Ronaldo lunges at the back post to loop it back across goal, where Jota is waiting to tap in from millimetres out. It's VAR checked, but it stands; game on again?
Havertz scythes down Ronaldo and is booked for it.
Bruno Fernandes is hooked, and replaced by Joao Moutinho. Portugal look stunned here, and need to shore it up before it gets very embarrassing.
Gosens is being subbed, replaced by Marcel Halstenberg. I imagine Nelson Semedo will be relieved. Also going off is Hummels, replaced by Emre Can.
- GoalRobin GosensGermany
GOAL! Portugal 1 Germany 4 (Gosens 60)
He's earned this. Germany spring forward, and work Kimmich into space on the right. He clips a perfect cross to the back post where Gosens is waiting, totally unmarked, to thump a header into the net.
Ronaldo and Jota break. Jota tries to go past Hummels and in to the German area but is comfortably dispossessed.
It's another change for Portugal, as Rafa Silva replaces Carvalho.
After patient build-up play from Germany Gnabry tries to spin and slide in Havertz, but it's cut out by Dias.
Portugal win a free kick 30 yards out and to the left. Ronaldo has a shy, and whistles a fierce shot a couple of yards over the bar.
One devastatingly brilliant break aside, Germany have battered Portugal so far.
- GoalKai HavertzGermany
GOAL! Portugal 1 Germany 3 (Havertz 51)
Germany score, this time via one of their own players! It's a lovely move, worked across the face of the Portuguese box, where Muller finds Gosens in acres on the left. He fires a superb low cross into the area where Havertz is waiting to tap the ball into the net.
Some intricate play from Portugal on the right works the space for Fernandes to cross into the German area, but he's overcooked it and the ball drifts out of play.
We're underway again in Munich.
Renato Sanches is on for Portugal, replacing Bernardo Silva.
- End of 1st Half
That's yer lot for the first half, what a box of fireworks that was.
CHANCE! A shocking pass from Bernardo Silva gifts possession to Gnabry, who has a free run at Pepe. He takes it forward from his own half all the way into the area, gliding past Pepe with ease, and his fierce shot is well saved by Patricio.
We'll have a minimum of three additional minutes.
Portugal are being ripped open in wide areas. Havertz slips Gosens into the area on the left, and his cross-cum-shot is punched clear by Patricio. From that, Portugal break quickly and win a corner.
A corner from Kroos finds Rudiger, but under pressure he can only head high and wide from six yards out.
What an amazing phase of play. Three Portuguese players have now scored and Germany lead 2-1.
- Own-goalRaphaël GuerreiroPortugal
GOAL! Portugal 1 Germany 2 (Guerreiro o.g. 39)
Crikey - they're in front! Muller lobs a ball in to the area. Havertz misses what should be a simple volley into the net, but Kimmich smashes it back across goal and now Guerrerio shins one into his own net! My oh my.
Will that be the goal that sparks Germany's campaign?
- Own-goalRúben DiasPortugal
GOAL! Portugal 1 Germany 1 (Dias o.g. 35)
Germany have threatened in wide areas, and the two players stationed there have helped pull them level. Kimmich finds Gosens with a looping cross to the back post; he smashes it across goal on the volley, where in challenging Havertz, Dias can only shin the ball into the net past a helpless Patricio. Germany are level! It's credited to Havertz for now, but it's definitely an own goal.
For a brief second it looks like Silva is in behind Rudiger from a lovely ball down the line from Fernandes, but he was offside.
Pepe and Havertz collide going for the ball, and Pepe is down. The crowd aren't overly chuffed with Pepe, who was waving the old imaginary yellow a few minutes ago after Gnabry caught Dias, but I think he's genuinely winded here.
Kimmich gets the better of Guerreiro on the right, but can only roll a low cross into the hands of Patricio thereafter.
Jota's ball in finds the head of Guerreiro 12 yards out, who can only glance the ball high over the bar.
Havertz bundles Carvalho over 30 yards from goal on the left, and it's a free kick to Portugal.
Gnabry twists Guerriero round on the right edge of the Portuguese area. He then smashes a cross into the area, which misses everyone and flies out of play. With that, the players take a drinks break as it's a toasty thirty degrees in Munich today.
Half a chance here for Portugal. They take a corner short to Guerreiro; he picks out Dias, completely unmarked at the back post who heads it right back across goal to no one in particular. It drifts out, but he had more time to guide that into the far corner.
That goal has really dulled the atmosphere in Munich, and it feels like the Germans are still processing what happened as they knock the ball around in midfield. We could have some match now; Germany need to get forward, which will leave them susceptible to similar breaks from the Portuguese.
Gosens has a yahoo from a wide angle now, but his fierce daisy cutter is straight into the hands of Patricio.
Germany, who have bossed this opening stanza, walked right on to one there. That was a brilliant counter from Portugal.
- GoalCristiano RonaldoPortugal
GOAL! Portugal 1 (Ronaldo 15) Germany 0
Portugal have absolutely done Germany on the break here! Ronaldo heads clear a German corner, and Bernardo Silva breaks at pace. His long, diagonal ball finds Jota clean through in the German area; he squares it to Ronaldo, who had made up ninety yards to simply tap the ball into the empty net with Neuer stranded!
Muller has a lash now after a knockdown from Kimmich. It's 20 yards out and from a wide angle, and bounces safely into the hands of Patricio.
Kroos moves forward threateningly, and plays a one-two with Gosens on the left edge of the Portuguese box. His shot is blocked, and Portugal clear again.
GOOD SAVE! Havertz lets one rip from the edge of the area. Patricio diverts it away to the right, and then does just enough to put off Gnabry and force him wide of goal from the rebound. Portugal eventually scramble it clear; this is a good start by Germany.
Gnabry goes on a little sortie, dancing his way to the byline, but can only clip a weak cross into the hands of Patricio.
DISALLOWED GOAL! Almost the perfect start for the hosts! Kimmich gets the ball wide on the right, and whips it in to the middle. Gnabry misses it but Gosens contorts his body superbly at the back post to stab in a volley, but Gnabry was half a yard off and it's chalked.
Lots of possession for Germany so far, but all sideways; it abruptly comes to an end when Kimmich is boxed in and forced out of play near halfway.
Peep! Let's do this.
Right then, let's get it popping. It's a glorious evening in Munich and the crowd, although not at capacity, are making a din that suggests they're right up for this.
The teams are out, and we're ready to go with the national anthems. Your referee tonight is the Premier League's own Anthony Taylor.
Given how staggering their record is in international football, it's perhaps a little surprising that Germany have been to the final of a European Championship once since their last victory in 1996. As for Portugal, their record isn't talked about enough. This century alone they've won a Euros, reached the final of another and been in the semi-finals of three other Euros/World Cups in this century alone.
The players should be aware of the result from Budapest earlier, which has really invited the cat in to hang with the pigeons. Depending on the result this evening, all four teams in the group could go into their final match with a fair chance of progressing to the second round.
On the ITV coverage, Souness and friends are having a little patter about double pivots in midfield. Today it's Danilo and Carvalho under the spotlight for Portugal. Judging by the reaction from Wembley last night, the double pivot (or DP if you're pressed for time) is a great idea if you go on and win the game.
This is the first game between these two sides since Germany walloped Portugal 4-0 in the group stages of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The zinger-cracking Thomas Muller was the star that day, registering a hat-trick; Pepe, who marked him that day and will face him again this evening, was sent off when the two clashed in the first half.
Unless you've somehow avoided all social media in the last four days - and if you have, my trilby in the air to you - you'll be aware that Ronaldo became the all-time record scorer in the European Championship with his brace against Hungary. There really aren't many records left for him to set; he's never won a golden boot at an international championship though, and for a man seemingly driven by individual achievement that's surely an additional motivation this summer.
If Low is to go out on a high with Germany, they'll have to do it the hard way. The Germans are on the back foot after France got ahead early and held them at arms length in Munich on Tuesday night. Tonight is huge; Germany have never lost the first two matches in the group stages, and a defeat here could well see them spinning out of the tournament come Wednesday evening. On the plus side, they're at home tonight and also against Hungary for the group finale; but they need to find their rhythm, and quickly.
Portugal won their first game, but they won it late. Their 3-0 victory over Hungary in Budapest on Tuesday was only secured with an 84th minute deflected opener from Raphael Guerreiro and drenched with an industrial tin of gloss by two late goals from Cristiano Ronaldo. Don’t be fooled mind; there’s some serious fire power in that Portuguese squad, and if they can get safely out of this group they could go deep into the tournament. Could they possibly retain the title that they won in France five years ago?
Lets have a quick chat about team changes: there aren't any. Both Fernando Santos for Portugal and Joachim Low for Germany keep faith with their respective eleven from the opening round of matches.
Here's your Portugal:
Good evening! Welcome to live coverage of Portugal versus Germany from the Allianz Arena in Munich. We’re into the fourth match of Group F here, and it’s beautifully poised.
After losing their opening match to France, the Germans are on the brink already here. Another defeat could nudge them definitively towards the ignominy of another first round exit, to sit alongside their early departure from the 2018 World Cup in Russia. If Portugal administer that defeat, they’ll saunter through to the second round.
Should Germany win however then we could be in for a right old nerve jangler in the final round of matches, particularly as Hungary have just held France 1-1 in Budapest. All to play for then, let’s get about it; teams from Munich incoming.
