The "Group of Death" has not been a walk in the park for any of the teams in Group B of the Euro 2012 Group Stage. All of the matches played in this group so far have all been decided by one goal margins. Which team will be breathing after Sunday? Take a look below to find out.
1. Germany -- 6 points. Germany needs a win or a draw against Denmark in order to make it through to the quarterfinals. Germany also can make it through with a loss to Denmark if the Germans score two or more goals, but only lose by one goal.
2. Portugal -- 3 points. Portugal will make it through with a win or a tie over the Netherlands and a loss by Denmark or a tie against the Dutch and a Denmark tie against Germany. In a weird tiebreaker, Portugal would also make it through with a win against Holland and a 1-0 or a 2-1 victory by Denmark over Germany.
3. Denmark -- 3 points. Denmark makes it through with a win over Germany or with a tie against Germany and a loss by Portugal.
4. Netherlands -- 0 points. Even though the Netherlands have laid a couple of goose eggs so far, they still have one chance of making it to the quarterfinals. Denmark will have to lose to Germany. Then, the Netherlands would have to defeat Portugal by two goals.
