Portugal -vs- France
Just same case in 2016; reigning European champions Portugal now find themselves fighting to make one of the top two spots in the final match day in the group of death. And if the results do not go their way, at least they hope they still can progress as one of the best third-placed teams.
Portugal have never failed to make it out of the group stage during their previous seven appearances at the European Championships. But their fate remains in their own hands as they prepare to meet one of the tournament favorite, France.
Both team are finalist during last European Championships in 2016. Eder scored the only goal to help Portugal lifted up The Henri Delaunay Trophy!
As mentioned, Ronaldo has never scored against France, but breaking that duck here would see him net his 20th goal at a World Cup or Euros – surpassing Miroslav Klose and breaking yet another record in an illustrious career.
Although France still remain at the top of the Group F with 4 points, and will advance to round 16 for sure, Mbappe, Benzema and Greizmann wasted a lots of chances on first two matches still the biggest issues for Les Blues.
Lucas Hernandez should return at left-back after Lucas Digne was surprisingly given the nod last time out, and recent reports have claimed that Pavard and Adrien Rabiot could be at risk of losing their places as Jules Kounde and Corentin Tolisso push for starts.
It’s exciting to see Mbappe and C.Ronaldo on the pitch at the same time, and games between these two European powerhouses have often been low-scoring affairs in the past.
We can envisage France bouncing back from their underwhelming result last time out, but Portugal will try their best to attain at least one point in this game, so a draw could be an ideal result for both teams.
Prediction final score for Portugal -vs- France: 1-1
