Germany and Portugal are all set to duke it out in kicking their Euro 2012 campaigns to a good start in Group B action at the Arena Lviv tonight. Check this page for Germany vs Portugal Live Score and Highlights.

Germany is one of the favorite team to win the Euro 2012 with their squad lead by Mario Gomez and Boateng and Ozil. Aside from most of them in good health centre-back Per Mertesacker is expected to play after good showing in training. Competing for the usual lone striker spot are Mario Gomez, Miroslav Klose and Lukas Podolski but Germany coach Joachim Loew chose Gomez up front for the start.

Meanwhile Ronaldo will lead his team in this campaign as Portugal's Nani is missing in action with injury on his right foot but might be fit for the remaining group games. The attack is also three wide with Ronaldo and Nani on the wings and Postiga in the center. It's surprising they they let Nani start tonight.

Germany won 3-2 over Portugal in Euro 2008 and this will be their fourth meeting at European Championships. Check this page for Germany vs Portugal Live Score and Highlights

Here are starting lineups on both team

Germany: Neuer, Boateng, Hummels, Badstuber, Lahm, Khedira, Schweinsteiger, Muller, Ozil, Podolski, Gomez

Portugal: Rui Patricio, Joao Pereira, Bruno Alves, Pepe, Fabio Coentrao, Meireles, Veloso, Joao Moutinho, Nani, Postiga, Ronaldo


Germany Goal! Gomez scores a header for Germany at 71' from Khedira's cross pass.

Germany 1 - 0 Portugal


Goal highlights for Portugal Portugal realy played well against Germany good defense however, they missed some goal opportunities when Pepe has a nice look at 43' but hits the underside of the bar and the ball bounced down the line and back out.

At 80' Ronaldo smashed the ball from the distance, but Neuer kept his eye on it to knocked it out.

At 87' Varela's shot has a close range shot at the ball but Neuer again dives to block from. Brilliant move by Portugal, but the shot from close range fails to find the net. Give credit for Germany good defence.
