2014 FIFA World Cup Group G Winners – SBB Picks
Zipster thinks Portugal will win Group G
I was expecting Germany to be shorter than they are at the moment, 4/7 does not look that bad but then again the 3/1 about Portugal doesn’t look bad either! Ghana and USA are probably long shots to win the group but both will be trying to pick up the second spot if either Germany or Portugal slip up.
Portugal sometimes do not perform at the tournament stage of competitions whilst the Germans usually hit the ground running but I am expecting a big tournament from Portugal this year and I believe that they will win the group with Germany going through as runner-ups.
Kyle thinks Portugal will win Group G
I think the only one where I haven’t picked the favourite! Germany have a poor defence and no genuine class striker. To win the group, I don’t think teams need more than a very good starting XI. The squad depth is tested as the tournament progresses and that’s when Portugal will struggle. Ronaldo will be inspired and with a solid back 4, they could surprise a few. USA to finish bottom of the group could also be another bet in this group.
Gecko thinks Germany will win Group G
I can see the Germans having enough firepower to win all their games and qualify as usual – Portugal may well need a win in their final game to join them
Both USA and Ghana are good shouts for surprises and possible qualification although the Portuguese do tend to have that bit of extra star quality
Darylrogerson thinks Germany will win Group G
I think Germany can top this group. Portugal obviously have Ronaldo, but the Germans can employ a solid defence to keep him isolated especially with him struggling for fitness. I think USA could surprise a few people here and if Ronaldo isn’t fit Portugal could struggle badly.
jaydubs thinks Portugal will win Group G
I am favouring the Portuguese here who look to be a team on the up. The weather is going to suit them and over the 3 group games I fancy the efficient Germans to become a little tired breaking down decent teams in Ghana and the USA.

Like the Germans here yes they are having a bit of a transition stage at the moment but they look very well set up and can take out this group
